Another year, another season. Where's the 2010 update?

Edit: woo, own a page

I was doing a random google search for 'imsa fiero' and what do I see but this:

(told you I was IMSA searching today )
Any more news on this car? If he ever wants to give it away for a song, let me know. I have a nice garage all set aside for it

Dave,

I just found your thread. I am so glad to see a Fiero bodied car out on the track again. Road racing has always been my favorite type of motorsports. Unfortunatly, I live a long way from any tracks, so TV is my fix. Is there a site where I can see more pictures of your car in action? Great job on the restoration!!

Get it done!
And you should try and take the car to a race at Road America sometime so I can come and watch it pound out some laps !

I know it's been quite a while since we have heard something on this. Is this car going to see any track days this year? If possible i think its time for a pictorial bump!!!!

I haven't posted in so long that I forgot how to attach pics to a post!! I promise that I will get to uploading some pics to photobucket for and update. Last season was fun and the car finally feels and runs how I intended it to. It was a lot of work, but some engine, transmission and suspension tweeks made all the difference.
Be back soon

Dave,
Don't know if you remember me but I am in Ct with CART.
I believe you sold your old #14 car to Dana a few years ago.
We meet at Pocono at one of our track days.
I drive #41 Fiero.
I just saw this thread and remember you talking about having talked to some of the
original designers of that car and having the original drawings to.
Is this correct?
I would appreciate some seeing some oics too.
Get cracking man..........................
We have 6 guys driving Fieros on a regular basis in the club.
Good to see someone activly campaining one to show the rest of the non-believers out there.

Thanks, Bob Doiron
President, CART

I just found this thread after a few years and felt like it needed some closure. The car was sold August of 2014 ans is now terrorizing tracks near the Montana area!! I miss it time to time but the time had come to move on and let it go to start a new chapter with someone who will spend the time and effort to keep running and enjoying it. As my life got more full with two great sons, a loving,supportive wife,and a business, I felt I needed to dial back the intensity of my racing efforts. I just didn't have the time anymore needed to properly maintain the car. I have returned to where I started,Spec Miata racing, where I can still get to the track and enjoy the heat of battle,but the car just demands far less in terms of commitment to maintain.
It was a hell of a journey researching,engineering, building and then driving this beast. It was just a shame these cars( Original IMSA Fiero race cars) never got the proper reception they deserved. I learned much, met many great people and use the knowledge and experience gained from that car on the many projects since and in the future. I thank you for the genuine interest by many on this site and wish you all the best with the task of keeping interest the the Fiero in the years to come..............

Thanks for the update. A fine looking race car it is. Hope the new owner has as much fun as you did. Can you sneak a pic of the Miata in here?
