Two Fauxrarri Kit Cars: 1985/6 Pontiac Fiero Fake Ferraris
The Pontiac Fiero was given a mid engine setup and an Italian name that meant "proud", so why not fulfill that destiny by converting your Fiero to Fauxrarri...or save your cash and buy one that is already eye-tallion. Like this black 1984 Pontiac Fiero offered for $4,500 or this red 1985 Pontiac Fiero offered for $8,500, both in Anchorage, AK from the same seller via craigslist. Tips from Zach.
First up is the black Fiero that is supposed to be a 1986 Ferrari 328 GTS -- it actually does a pretty convincing job of looking like a Ferrari, even if the performance from the 2.5 liter Iron Duke-4 mated to a slushbox is going to be more like a prancing donkey.
The red Fauxrarri looks very Magnum PI , but it is similarly powered by an Iron Duke-4 mated to an automatic transmission -- expect this kit to be less Magnum and more Higgins.
