Thanks, FieroLost. It is the best swap that I have seen personally, and since I don't have the skills myself to fix up a bad swap, I learned my lesson and decided to buy a well done car and try to keep it going, as opposed to buying one that has to be ripped apart because the swap was sloppy or half-assed.
I will likely have a summertime Fiero BBQ or pig roast in my backyard this summer like I used to have, so check the Toronto forum for details- all are welcome.
I was very close to buying a 2015 Jag F type S convertible last month that a customer of mine was selling. Car was amazing, but there was this voice in the back of my head whispering that even though it is an amazing car, it is not a hobby or a passion: Anyone with money or even just decent credit can buy a newer sports car or luxury car. I thought back to the days of Fiero ownerhip (both the frustrations and the joys..... the thrill of treasure hunting for spare parts..... and once in a while seeing one on the road and sharing a comraderie... I wasn't convinced I would get the same joy out of the Jag, so I decided to try one more try with a Fiero. This is my 27th Fiero since 1991... hopefully my last
So I did some investigating as to the fate of Duane's car, tracked it down, and she was mine 2 days later! I plan to get the dew wipes replaced (if I can find a pair) and get the AC running- but beyond that, car is ready to be enjoyed.
