Thanks.

I'm not rich, and I REALLY wasn't when the project started. I've taught myself to weld, fiberglass, woodwork, etc., and I now have the confidence to try just about anything on a car.

It should be ready to drive, although not complete, by spring 2016. The goal was that we would each have a 'show car', so we could spend more time together. It's been exciting, fun, and frustrating, but I wouldn't change where we are at now.
+1 on the nice work.
Did you upgrade the engine? IIRC, the Fiero's engine bay has the room for some mighty big engines.

I was keen back then but put a hold on it because what I wanted was too powerful for a P plate licence. Fair enough. Since ive had my full licence ive only owned 4wd’s (I outdoor/hunt a lot).
Well for the past few months ive been looking around and seriously considering finally picking one up, and I might’ve found the perfect car. I’m going to check it out on saturday and I cant wait. Super excited.

If it all works out like im hoping I will surely share a pic of it here.
im stoked that this all worked out. Here she is, 1979 Holden HZ tonner:

That is the next project. Tossing around 3 options... LS series, 3800 supercharged, or go 100% electric. The engine bay is huge, and I've already relocated all the needed stuff. It will be on the road spring 2016, and I'll be doing to swap November/December 2016.

That bug is awesome and Imma let you finish, but that Holden is the coolest drymounting thing in this or any other thread.

wotta, drymount man. So rad. Great job.

This is me driving my great aunts and my dad's girlfriend and some random teenage girls around the neighborhood in my pop's truck.
