Needless to say i'm highly obsessed with the 80s. Here are 4 recent acquisitions that i've made in the last few months...

I find buying in bulk allows one to yield maximum discounts :roll:

-1986 porsche 944 red, n/a (Blown headgasket)
-1983 Porsche 944 gold, n/a (bad transmission, good engine)

Image

Easy project...just swap in the good motor and have fun. I do have a whacky turbo swap planned..but...baby steps.

-1987 Fiero 4cyl gold (Bad clutch, good everything else)
-1985 Fiero 4cyl silver (Exhaust leak)
Image

I'm driving the silver fiero now...it is LOW and SLOW.
It's so 80s i love it :lol: =D>

Hahahah! Well, I fully approve of the 944 project.....they are soooo cheap to buy. I just always hesitate when I realize I really just want the Turbo version.

yea, we got them at a ridiculously good price. I figure this would be a good platform for "racecar' status. :lol: 8)

I can't believe how huge the stroke on the porsche 2.5 is. Maybe it's just huge in relation to the car....Maybe i should throw the 16v b230 motor into it instead :lol:

Way back in high school we put a V8 in our teachers fiero (just a 350).

The mechanic teacher in the town south of us had a V8 swap and a Lambo kit on his. Funny looking thing.

I like 944's. I'd drive one.

I'm looking forward to keeping the fiero stock, low, and slow.

the 27mpg city/40mpg highway is really appealing to me!

Had a 924 many moons ago, really slow but handled great. Really lusted after the 944 when they came out, I'd still drive one today as that design has aged beautifully.

I totally agree that the 944 styling has aged gracefully. Love the phone dial rims too! It's got a 215/60r15 so i think the wheels must be around 7 or 7.5".

I took it around the block once and it felt tight and balanced. Looking forward to getting it on the road this summer!

This pic didnt look blurry on my phone, but you get the jist of it :roll:
