Met some great people today, and saw some beautiful Fieros along with that.

Unfortunately mine stayed home as I was uncomfortable driving it that distance with the dash I was delivering in the passenger seat.
HHR to the rescue again. lol

Pictures, and more to come as I convert them for PIP.

Any engine pics of the yellow, grey and black notchie? The carb is sticking through the hood in an odd location, so curious what is going on.

This appears to be an official pace car with the Super Duty engine. This being the case, it was intended to do a few laps around the track. GM saw no need to have working headlights for this, and were probably never installed.

I do not know this for certain, but it is a likely explanation.

No problem.
I actually enjoy going to car shows etc. and documenting them.

Sadly this may be my final Fiero event as an actual owner...…. I am finding myself having far too much difficulty getting in and out of mine.
Thinking along the lines of a Stealth R/T or 3000GT which I still really love and miss dearly.

This was my first Stealth R/T and would love to find another just like it, but a '94 and up with the headlights being in the fender, not pop ups.
This was just as much fun as my 3000GT VR4, but without the AWS and twin turbos.
I no longer have anyone to impress with acceleration, so lowering the bar so to speak.




(LOL, yes Patrick, I like the newer ones better, this was a '92 and then I had a '95 Stealth R/T which I preffered. ).

I still love my Fiero, but sometimes life, time, and age has a greater influence over our choices.
Once I am in, it is great, but getting in and then out again...… I am sure some of you can relate.

I do have the '88 up for sale or trade (not going to post it here) for a Stealth R/T or 3000GT, so moving on shall we say, and yes, I am asking way too much for it as I am still betwixed and between.

No problem, Dave. As I stated in the other thread... "Different strokes for different folks".

LOL, that is why most car companies sell more than just one model I am sure...…

Generic car!

Forgot to add that the car in the picture you quoted is one very beautiful example of what a Fiero could be.
I am a purist, but between this one and the Plazma, I may just be swayed from my thoughts!

It is truly a shame all of the pictures from that thread are gone.

Never really thought about it, but now you have my mind in a "figure this one out" mode!
Dino adhesive?

Alien technology?

Ah, I think I have it!
They only drove backwards!

Edit: Just looked at the front mounts, and that does not work either!

Then how'd the front axle stay in place?

Perhaps it was some sort of ancient hovercraft.

Edited my last post, and Patrick, I love your thought process!

My mother still reminds me that when I went on a carnival ride back in the '50's, I would look at all the gears and motors instead of the pony I was on.
Twisted minds think alike...…..

My favorite playthings as a kid were Tinkertoy, and then Meccano. I always wanted to make and modify mechanical things. I guess we were both eventually destined to be Fiero owners! lol

Lincoln logs and erector sets for me.

I can remember building a crane that would topple over if I lifted a weight too large for it, so I made a larger platform!
Good times, very good times.

Its a supercharged duke
It sticks up because its intake inlet is so high.

Owner is Steve Neyens of Iowa. The car regularly attends the Heartland Iowa Fiero show Labor day weekend.

I talked to the driver of the Aldino. The Aldino was brought by a person who works for the owner of the Aldino company. They have that one and a much nicer black one. They show up at the Dells every once in a while. The company is for sale and the cars are for sale.

Here is a 32 min video by a young Fiero fan and Youtube content creator, his channel is called Garageless. He is a cool guy.

He shot it live at the 2018 DELLS RUN show.

click on the link and give him a video view.
//www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/098295.html

(There is some profanity)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIm2HKp39Vo

He actually did miss a fairly large portion of the show in his vid.
