Mid week long time reader Clint Jolly Green sent me a photo of a Pontiac Fiero that had been converted into a two seater trike. Shocked and intrigued I foolishly set forth looking for more info on what I assumed to be a one off creation.
I was wrong, it was far from the only one in existence and many a ‘resourceful’ gear head have in fact transformed a Fiero from a four wheeled vehicle into one with only three.
Some of these arguably ill conceived creations look like they could see a lot of road hours without fail, while others appear to be held together by the sheer will power of the builder.
One can only assume that creating these is relatively simple (on the scale of a trike to car conversions) but I am a little shocked to see that these are (or were) so popular.
Someone even built a Raptor style one and abandoned the rear engine configuration entirely.
Poor Fiero’s can’t really catch a break, everyone wants to turn them into something else instead of the quirky mid engine ‘sports’ car they were designed to be.
More Eurokracy coverage coming up as soon as I get through it as well as a post on this years Meguair’s Car Crazy Canada’s Best winner.
It occured to me at Eurokracy that I have not seen the car below in some time. Anyone know what happened to it, used to see it quite often.
that last one looks pretty cool … from the front.
the rear is ok i guess.
Damn I cant believe how many of these you found!
I have a gift/curse.
There’s one of these running around Nashua, NH. A very good example of one going on whats pictured.
