Sorry, It's not British- but, help me anyway ? In search of a "quality" fake Ferrari, possibly Dino-355, to fit Fiero. Anybody ? Thanks, Art.

Not for a "Fire Arrow" but I have an original unmounted Alpha 1 GTO kit to fit a Datsun 240Z.
The collection includes proper guages, mirrors, badging, lights and a Jag 6.0 with 6 webers.
Probably not for sale, but I just had to put it out there.
A distant relative used to make Testarossa replicas on a lengthened Fiero platform. He used original glass and accessories for his cars.
We made a few Miller turboed v6's a Northstar and one Jag v12 for him. Sadly the "chemical world" has a firm grip on him now.
Maybe one day he will return to the real world. The cars he produced were spectacular. And his family misses him deeply.

Cheers
Fred

Prefer not to lengthen platform,(minimalist pasta impersonator). If "Fireball" grows on me, future power should be Acura MDX, 3.5L, rated 265hp., or jus' add turbo ? Car has original GM 282/5 speed. Do I use this, a new GM F40, 6 speed or low mileage Toyota MR2-turbo, 5 speed ? Thanks, Art.

I had the fine pleasure of attending a lecture/presentation, with Mr. Ak Miller, at Fullerton College, CA. The man was a treasuretrove of auto knowledge and accomplishments. RIP. Ak.
