You never know what your going to run into. Went to a SCCA meet today (Helena, MT) and spotted a Fiero across the pit lane. And it looked like a wide body. Neat. As i'm walking over to the car I see subtle differences , more rake to the nose, aero underneath rear of car, this car aint no regular Fiero.

It was 1 of 6 Pontiac factory race cars. Full tube chassis, every inch a full on race car. Originally believed to have a Super Duty. As it currently sits it has a longitudinal ls6 and a manual 4 speed. To give some idea of the performance, newer corvettes were running mid 90's on the course, Fiero was running mid to upper 80's.

It's a long ways from a production Fiero, but it was very cool to see.

I can't get the pic to download off my phone. When I do, I'll try and post it.

Yeah, we'd love to see that.

If you have any trouble posting images of the beast, feel free to send them to the email address in my Profile and I'll upload them.

That sounds like Dave Deerson's old car. Here is the build thread:
//www.fiero.nl/forum/F...3/HTML/000089-2.html



It was listed for sale a couple years back, so this might be the new owner.

Mystery solved! Thanks Fieroguru, that is indeed the car. Still looks exactly as your pics. Its got a few bumps and bruises on it. Glad to see it out on the track. It is indeed a very serious race car. Read the old thread, quite the racing history there.
