Thread: Exotic's, widebody, choptop fiero

  1. #1

    Default Exotic's, widebody, choptop fiero

    Hi Exotic SE here and this is my project.





    The patient, a 1985 Pontiac fiero SE.

    The car started out as a stock automatic notchback SE with the V-6 in the back.

    Since it has been totally transformed while still remaining true to the fiero DNA and style.

    Hang tight pics on the way !

    first up was the chop, 3" inches taken off the top and the windshield laid back to create a more aggressive and exotic look.
    Stance lowered and Seat rails were also lowered to add more headroom.



    From there the car was converted to the more modern GT fastback body style.









    Once that was done it was time for another exotic touch.

    To continue the improved body styling a custom widebody kit was rounded up.





    What the car will look like once installed (this is a friend's choptop widebody fiero)

    While the bodywork was on hold, i decided to upgrade from the stock V-6.





    The 3800 SC should give this sled some get up and go !











    Testing out some Dubs in the process.

    hm this could turn out good, tho ditch those "dubs" they look like poo-poo. you should get like some wide as f*ck 17's or 18's on there, and a healthy dose of camber.

    that wheel is way way too large. go like an 18 at most and drop the car. you can easily get that frame 2" lower instead of filling the entire wheel well with a massive wheel

    I was very skeptical at first but this looks like it could turn out decent.

    Wowow a fiero. Has potential but I have to agree with the others on the wheel choice, gotta go smaller. Good build though.

    Thanks guys for the intrest and input. The wheels are not mine they belong to the shop's owner, i just had him test them out for the heck of it.

    I am very picky about my wheels, and am having a heck of a time deciding on a set.

    HRE has been my favorite so far, but nothing written in stone.

    That is already wicked sleek looking. The finished car will be badass,

    Thanks guys, but if you think mine is sick there at least a half dozen out there that would really blow your mind. If i get a chance i will post a few pics later on.

    Meanwhile,...got sick of the multi-color look and hit it up with some primer.











    Ordered some new exhaust tips as well







    Stay tuned, the widebody work (like below) should hopefully start next week.

    ive read about these but never seen one (dont have them downunder...), i only know that they're usually used for kit cars. i like what you're doing with it so far, and really hope your wheel choice is on point. from your concept it looks like you're wanting to go larger in the rear than the front? if you do, please dont go more than an inch, like 17/18 or 18/19, and the front looks a bit too snow-plowish imo. cool sketch and good work on the motor upgrade. look forward to updates and seeing how this turns out.

    As soon as I saw those Lambo doors fitted I couldn't take anything else on the car seriously. Looks like you are trying to play with the 'big boys' and failing to me.

    Which is a shame, because except for the over sized wheels it does look decent standard of work. I can't wait to see it finished either way.

    hey at least you didn't do the "fierrai" bullshit that everybody else seems to do. I really can't remember why the fiero didn't take off.
