Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

Why? The same motivation that caused pre-85 944's owner put a turbo badge on the left side of the hatch, leaving the original plain 944 script on the right, while spraying his cookie cutters white with rattle-can paint. Saw that at Franklin and Madison today while in the Loop. Bad judgement abounds in the sports car world, I'm afraid...

yeah the Ferrari 288GTO is gorgeous, but, let's face it, the dimensions of this Fiero aren't anywhere near the Ferrari. The Fiero is small, narrow, and not very long... the Ferrari is not-so-small, really wide, and pretty long.

I'm taking bets that the owner wears a mullet.

Do they have a kit to make my VW Bug look like a Porsche 962?
Yeah, you'll have to give up your Rolls Royce front / Continental rear kit though (remember those).

Anyone remember that bad boy?

I wonder if you can carve a car body from a solid block of bondo.

Yeah, those dirty bastards blew up our Green Peace boat Rainbow Warrior in NZ a few years back. Damn French spies... I met more Americans than French people when I was in Paris, luckily.

to the untrained eye it would look like a real ferarri. But if that really is one of 3 fieros that did in fact really look like that instead of that heap of **** that they made...I would imagine it would be going for a LOT more money than just $21 grand. Funny how they dont show any interior pics..
