Thread: New p/b.

  1. Default New p/b.

    3 passes from last Friday. Messed up my 2-step release on the first run. Second run was new best 10.007 @135.54, backed up with 10.009 @131.08. Was getting heat soaked by last run and got some KR in 3rd gear so dropped off on back half. Guess I should have taken out the passenger seat to get the in the 9s. Likely parting the car out in the next few months, so this will likely be the last trip to the track for the slowfiero.

    Going to maybe look for something the whole family can enjoy together. Wife, 2 kids and only two seats doesn't make for good cruising. Thinking maybe a 4 door Chevy 2 or a turbo Buick/Grand National.

    Fiero has been beaten on pretty relentlessly for 13 years by me. Over 300 hp for most of that and near/over 600 for the last 3. It's starting to show its unhappy. Creaks and groans have become clunks. I've had a blast with the car, but hopefully the extremely rare drivetrain parts I've aquired over the last couple of years can go to someone else who can build something and get their share of excitement. It will be sad to see it go, i have had it almost as long as I've been with my wife. But it's time for something else.

    Neat little ride for sure.

    For a new project there is always things like the 4 door Malibus, Regals, Fairmonts, Zephyrs, I am leaning towards a 4 door blazer or something for a future project or 4 door Chevette with an LS would be fun too.
    I have a problem I see Mustangs and I think "Hello there".

    I hear 4door Zephyrs are pretty cool

    I was thinking about a mini van too would be fun at times, like Toma would do with his Caravans way back.
