Many of the guys here at 1A have a project of some sort that they are working on. “1ADan” is no exception, and he is racing to get it drivable for our car show on July 31st. That’s still 30 days away though, what could possibly be so hard? Well…. if you want the full story, you can check out his entire build thread on thirdgen.org. If you want the cliff notes, you are in the right place. (more…)
Much like the crazy Fire Truck we saw the other day on eBay, today we have a Craigslist find that will make you wonder what was in your cereal this morning. Let me preface this by saying, I have a HUGE respect for anybody that takes on a major project like this, and actually follows through to witness its completion. Whether it is space-ship-esque or not, you have to give the guy credit for getting these parts to actually mate up to each other.

So I ask you – What in the world did this seat originally come out of? Is it really a GTO seat? Some other A-Body? Drop some knowledge on me.
If there were ever two words that shouldn’t be allowed to go together, “Montana” and “Fiero” would be them. The only logical reason to have a Fiero in Montana is to melt the snow in your driveway when the car eventually catches on fire. I’ve been in a Fiero in a snowstorm before, and while it is hysterically fun in a “I’m afraid for my life” sort of way, I wouldn’t recommend it to people that aren’t wearing helmets. Winter driving in a Fiero is like playing the lottery, but you’ve already lost the main jackpot and now you’re wishing you did something else with your dollar. Ok, let’s get down to business, there is a 87 Fiero 5-speed Sunroof car at stake here:
The current owner says:
“This is a great vehical, I blew the engine driving down the interstate.”
Wow. Just …wow. All Fiero joking aside, I have gotten (more…)
