    Well I realise peoples tastes are different & I can usually see what has driven most projects but looking at that all I can feel is sorrow for the poor defenceless fiero that has to endure being seen in public dressed in that abomination of a kit.

    Sorry!

    This looks like it is an old Laser 917 kit that was made in the late 70's early 80's for the VW pan refitted to the Fiero. That front and back end are very unique and, actually, very close to the original Porsche racer 917 that it was designed after. If I remember correctly, the front and back were proportionate to the original but the length was way off. Kind of like that Diablo kit available today on the nonstretched Fiero chassis. Just doesn't look right.

    Funny though, at the ripe age of 14 or 15 I almost bought one of these off a guy in Vancouver BC, Canada who had shippied it up and started putting it together and lost interest from the work involved. My Dad would not let me put it in the garage so I did not get it. I think his words were something like, "Not in your young life will you put that piece of s*** into my garage" or equally memorable words to that effect.... ;D

    Glad he talked me out of it as it would probably still not be done..... I seem to remember they had horrible inside leg room. The doors opened gull wing style on the original kit though. More places to leak.

    I believe the Laser 917 kit has resurfaced somewhere in the US with someone building the kits on custom frames now but I can't remember who it is that is building them.

    To everyone, there is a beauty out there. Someone, obviously thought this was a beauty as well or would not have gone through the work to convert it over.

    Cheers
