Some of the body kits for the Fieros actually came off rather well, even using Lambo windshields on the Countach versions (probably worth more than the whole donor Fiero!), but they were almost always let down when you looked through the side window and spotted that GM plastic interior.

The whole description is worth looking at - it used an LS3 Chev and was properly done.

"can reach a maximum speed of 160mph, according to local media reports."

Is that during a fall off a cliff?
