Ran across Bozzie on fb and boy has he been busy ! Don’t want to steal his thunder but he has yet another project in the works (non-Fiero) that is going to be sick ! Can’t speak for him but I do believe this Fiero project is still progressing. * update Boz says the Fiero project continues, he just bounces between his various projects as parts become available and as his mood directs. 👍

Hello, as its definatly been awhile ! I have been keeping busy with other projects around the shop and sadly Alchemy has been just sitting on a rack . Probably the worst thing i couldve done to her. As before being on the lift i was always tripping over her and butting heads, and well, she was in my way so a incentive to work on her. But i'll be getting back to her soon. Ive picked up a few other projects. A factory five GTM car, and a 365gtb convertible as well. Both needing work in more ways than one. So for now, ive been dedicating myself to this TTOP car that i have with 39k miles. Plans in the works include a 3800SC swap. Cam , intercooler as well as ported intake and Northstar throttle body. Pics to come. Also full rebuild of front suspension, cut 88 front springs , rear coilovers and a 329 ratio auto tranny with a 500rpm higher stall converter. Battery relocation, leather seats, and sound system. Project currently moving fast so more to come ! Hope all are well and being safe in this crisis. More time for our cars thou !

Boz

It sure did. Boz never posted the details here, but suffice to say, it's gone. Last I heard from Boz was that he was looking for a new similar body kit. I have not seen whether he was successful in finding one. Pretty sure my contacts had dried up.

Bob.

PS, that sure looks like my old Firebird in the top right. It's not, but is close.

Hello Everyone,

Time for a update as SO much has happened in the last year. My shop has burned down taking Alchemy with it. Also a customers 88 Formula, a very nice car as well. I have to say that even thou its been a year im just coming out of the shock of it all. Having to reestablish a new location to work out of and start anew as i lost pretty much everything. Losing a project like this is beyond hurtful and the years invested and dollars and blood sweat and tears / fustrations and small victorys on the project burn thru my memories as well as everyones support and inspiration. Thank you for that. I will post some pics soon of Alchemy or if Exotics can post a pic i would appreciate it as i have to download the software to post pics on my new computer, lots to do . I was building a GTM as well and that body was burned but i think i might get a new body and bring it back as the fire burned at a higher level, and Alchemy was in a lift just above the GTM so she took the brunt of it. I had a Mc Burnie daytona spyder i was building in the next room and thankfully it survived with only smoke damage, im working on her now. A NEW Alchemy is in the works and i will have BIG news to share hopefully after this coming weekend . RCR will be impressed ! As i know he will understand when he sees it I wish everyone well and Healthy and im looking forward to moving on with a new build and upgrades soon in the Fiero Forum . Cant wait to come back .

Take Care,
Boz
