1988 Pontiac Fiero V8

Fun street car and autocrosser, seen often at Detroit Region SCCA, AROC and MSCC events in the early 2000's. 1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula with 350 small block Chevy, twisted wedge heads, Lingenfelter cam, ported TPI intake and SDS stand alone fuel injection.  18x9 rear wheels with 265/35 DOT tires.  No spoiler, stickers removed, single outlet exhaust.

Never could get it to handle properly and drivetrain parts started breaking often even with the mild motor, so it was parted out.  12 sec street car, quickest in class for autocross but never FTD, so basically a nice way to throw away time and money but not feel too bad about it.
