Looking at a Pontiac Fiero that is without body panels reminds me of a plucked chicken before it’s prepared for cooking for some reason. It’s cool to see it taken down to the basic root vehicle that Hulki Aldikacti created and managed to push through General Motors’ unbelievable bureaucracy, but still…it’s just a skeleton. Frame, suspension, powertrain, and engine are the basics of a car, but without the panels, this is a go-kart with ambition. At least, that’s how my mind works. At least this Fiero is owned by someone who has plenty of ambition as well. Ronald Finger has busted his ass on this car and it’s transformation from the derelict car in the back of someone’s property that sat for years to where it is at now is amazing.
We thought that, after the last update, we’d be seeing bodywork and paint. That’s still upcoming, because if nothing else, Finger is detail-obsessed and has found a few more things that need some work before he’s ready to get the body back on it. De-rusting the window regulators, getting the air conditioning up and going…okay, we get that. Fully dismantling the bumpers and the windshield wiper linkage? Well…he’s thorough, that’s for sure!
