Hi all, I'm Dave from MI. I'm very happy with my new 96 RMW. I appreciate all the stuff I've read and learned here while looking for my new ride, and it helped my find a killer deal on just the wagon I was looking for.

much of the black strip molding was loose, and repaired with a mixture of duct tape and gorilla glue? I have it on all pretty with 3m tape.

It has a small rip in the drivers seat too. otherwise, its in superb shape with 67k on it, virtually rust free which was difficult to find around here. It was a 1 owner wagon.


About me, I'm no stranger to wrenching. My fun car is an 87 fiero I put a 4.9L in.

I also enjoy silly Chinese motorized bicycles.

Its not exactly a modern swap, but cheap and easy way to get a light v8.

It showed at the Eyes on design show this year and I got a lot of positive comments. It was very nice.

Welcome!
If you can do a full tune-up on your v8 fiero, then you won't mind changing spark plugs on your LT1.
And the bike look like great fun, ain't silly!
Silly is me fawning over the 1950s era push reel mower I acquired Wednesday

I did go through my pile of audio stuff from the younger days. I thought this would have plenty of room to fit some bass somewhere.
That storage compartment in the back was so big. I had some stuff that fit sort of, and took the plunge.

I think I hid it pretty well. I didn't want to loose any space for rear seat feet, or any cargo capabilities, so this fit the bill. Its more than enough for me. Specs are a 10" blaupunkt 1000w dvc. Orion 1000w 0ohm amp. Very little gain needed here. Nice to clear a little space on the garage shelf and get some tunes rockin.

Sadly, I have no more pics of the sub install.
I did get a huge misfire issue on Friday. So new distributor, plugs wires. I really did not enjoy the process of getting to the distributor. Nobody does though. New from Michigan KIMG0314_zpskyciquf1

Welcome aboard. You would love the Florida Wagonfest in Daytona at the end of March every year.
We always park in the same place and a big group of Fiero people are right next to us 25-30 usually. All sorts of crazy little cars. One had a blown 454 in it!
