Here is one I found at a local car show

the guy argued with me that is wasnt a fiero. I dont think he like the fact that I was calling his "rare" car a fiero :lol:

that is a Zepher i think they call it and was made using Fiero Chassis and running gear from GM and where produced as there own car so it is and isn't a fiero they also have a car thats called the Meara and even though it is on a Fiero chassis it is a Meara because that is what it was sold as to the public

No this car is called a quicksilver. It was made by a costomer car company in Florida. It is a v6 fiero with a custom body. Looking over the car, it looks like gm gave this company the keys to the parts department. Pretty much everything attached to the body was a gm factory part.

Man, who knew Fieros were so versatile? I guess I did know since I see the fake F40's and such (even a Lambo this year) at Carlisle every year :)

All i know is i like the fiero with a 3 inch chop it lays the windshield down another 9 degrees and they look sweet . I did 1 when i was living in FL but i did some things that weren't really good when i chopped it I learned how to do a much better job. with the T-tops like i have i will need to take roof length out in a different place to make it work but i say it can be done and some say a T-top cant be chopped

OK what i am ending up doing is make it use all stock parts. so the knuckle will be machined to except these Audi A6 bearings and the VW passat 5 x 112 wheel bolt pattern hubs that will be pressed in and then i can just use stock VW passat axles. i will need to re-drill the rotor to 5x112 or the hub to 5x100
