Bought i car today...SO not a hotrod :(

I went to my cousins Garage sale (this guy knows everything abtou cars) he builds 3 wheel motorcycles (tric's...i cant spell) he molds his own bodies ect ect, his current project is putting a Porche motor in one, he has the motor all ready. Anywho, he has a 86 Fiero with a 2.8 V6 and was needing to get rid of it, and he didnt want much for it in the first place. I ask him jokingly how much he could come down for a cousin..lol he said man just take the thing lol i dont need it. I was like no no no, so we agreed id come and help him move all his tools and stuff (i guess its more of a going away sale than a garage sale) and he said we could call it even. its a 4 speed with 80K miles on it, it runs just great, new tires on it with less than 100 miles, and this guys TAKES care of his cars. I am going to repaint it when i do my camaro, atm its black, im just going to repaint it black. What you all think? i needed a car for gas milage, he said it gets around 30.

Fiero

My son in law has a 85, He has great fun with it. I was given and 85 that had a wiring fire and burnt up the engine compartment. Carefully check the wiring, remove the tape cover and look at the conectors to see nothing is shorted, Might save your car from a fire too. Have fun, they are great cars.

Swap in a supercharged 3.8 V-6 out of a Bonneville. That's all I'm gonna say.
