TRENDING RIDE OF THE WEEK

1988 Ponitac Fiero Formula 3800 IC/SC

owned by Casey Terwilliger

 

DRIVER BIO: “Work as a nurse. ADRENALINE junky. Love modifying cars. Enjoy cars of all makes and model. I’m a true car enthusiast. Can I just test drive cars for a living? Screw the day job and saving lives :-P”

VEHICLE BIO: “Swapped 11 years ago with a 3800 series 2 supercharged, Dynoed at 330hp & 430tq. Undergoing auto transmission, XPZ cam and aluminum heads. Still debating turbo or TVS 2300 supercharger and new paint. Do I like the supercharger? Yes, but I got turbo hungry after owning my SS turbo cobalt. The car is 2700 lbs. as is, so it will be potent.”

ENGINE TYPE: 3800 series 2

QUARTER MILE TIME: 12.47 sec

We spotted this sleek 1988 Pontiac Fiero rising towards the top spot in the trending feed this week and we had to give it a shout out. The Fiero was America’s first mass-produced, mid-engine sports car. But despite decent sales, it became one the biggest automotive flops in history. The main reasons were attributed to a high cost of repair, engine fires, and an underpowered engine. GM may have killed the Fiero off before it could achieve automotive greatness, but thanks to aftermarket modifications like the engine swap done to Casey’s car, the Fiero can be reimagined into the mid-engine driver’s car it so desperately strove to be. Make sure to thank Casey for sharing his ride by dropping him a like via the “View In-App” link above. Also, give Casey a follow for future build updates and check-in notifications.
