    Fieablo???

    What do you guy's think. I already have the Fakearri. A non streched Testarossa style 85 GT with the Archie kit and a new lm1-350 only 700 miles on the motor. It is a Sunday driver. I do not want to tear it up. I would like to buy a cheap Fiero and put a ZZ4 in longitudinal with a Held Motorsports custom cradle with an 11 inch stretch. Since The car would not have a rear body section after that I am considering putting just the rear portion of a Diablo or Countach and attaching it to the vehicle somewhere behind the sail panels. I could use that vehicle for a mean street racer. It would already have an air tight interior finished and a much lower cost than doing a complete kit because of the Fiero front section. I am going to try to photoshop this monster soon.* *;D

    I think it's a great idea... but I'm a little biased. I build the cradles.

    My name is Dave Held - formerly of Held Motorsports. Lee Waldmiller
    currently runs Held Motorsports - and fabricates all the suspension and
    brake add-ons that we once did... except for the engine cradles.

    I currently build the cradles and have the info posted at :

    I just wanted to clear up some of the confusion.

    Sounds like an interesting project. It will require a lot of fabrication though. the Diablo backend is much lower and wider than the Fiero So it will take considerable fabrication time to get things to line up right.

    Marty asked me to post his Ferrari (fakearri) interpretation.
