86SE Club Project Car
« on: November 29, 2010, 10:08:06 PM »
The Georgia Fiero Club is the proud recipient of:


The car was donated to the club by Mike and Scott Deen (Sonic50).  It has flushmount headlights, 5-spoke wheels with low profile tires, the suspension and brakes have been replaced.  It also has Mr. Mike's Leather seats.  It has the 5-speed Getrag transmission. 

The steering column is broken, the trunk lock is broken out and the engine is blown but we have a 68,000 mile engine available to us.  As soon as we have the title signed over to us, we'll start the process of getting it back on the road.  The car will be sold/auctioned and the proceeds will go to the club treasury. 

Thanks Mike and Scott.  We will try to see that it goes to a good home. 

I went to a prayer meeting and a ball game broke out.

Can you fill us in on how the car is equipped and what problems we might look for?  What's old and new, what's been replaced, etc?

I've seen a newer pic of this car, but those aren't flush-mount headlights.

I bought the car from the club.  The engine was dead and all the suspension was in need of replacement.  The first picture was from a Run For The Hills event on The Tail of The Dragon.  That's Scott and his girlfriend in the car.

I put a very good 87 engine into it and replaced almost all of the suspension including the ball joints, tie rod ends, and suspension bushings.  Sarge and I converted the flush mounts to a Generation 2 headlight system.  Scott (Sonic50) had kept the original headlight doors so I had those available for the un-conversion.  The flush mounts are beautiful on the car, but as they were, they aren't suitable for night driving.
