    Yes....there were the "Naysayers", They said,it couldn't be done..... The "Doubters",the "Pessimists,and the "Purists". I went through post after post of wanton abuse,frustration,wonder,and Glee. We laughed,we cried,we had some fun....Well,Gentlemen,The time has come. Yes,they are finally here. They FINALLY FREAKIN' ARRIVED!!! Wait NO LONGER!!! The 14,yes! there are 14! pictures of the,(gulp!) 355 BONDO FIERO ARE HERE! AS PROMISED!! FRIDAY AFTER 4:00PM! Yes,my friends,I JUST put the CD in my Computer,and I believe that we are ready! Please,get any food and drink,now. I do not,I repeat,DO NOT want to be responsible for anyone choking as they view ALL 14 PICTURES!!! Now,a word of warning: If you have a weak stomach,PLEASE refrain from eating BEFORE you view these pictures. As I already stated in a previous post. If you have EVEN the SLIGHTEST Love of the Ferrari Automobile. And,I will venture to say that if you are on FerrariChat,you will have much more LOVE of the Marque than that! These pictures WILL OFFEND YOU!!! So,sit down,strap in,and get prepared for one of THE scariest renditons of a copy of a Ferrari that I,personally,have EVER seen in my Life!!!!

    #2. Those Vents and scoop? PURE BONDO!!! BTW,aren't the Orange one's supposed to be on the outside,and the red ones on the inside? THATS how I first noticed that it could be an imitation. :) Reflectors or lights? I was laughing so hard at the time,I really didn't notice!

    O.K.......In this picture,you can REALLY see the thickness of the Bondo...Front,sides,and back!! We are HOPING that it will stick to the Pliable,plastic body panels of the "Donor Fiero",aren't we?

    You asked for it,you got it!!! Can't barely tell!! It's a GOOD thing that he wasn't attempting to make a Testarossa out of it. Can you imagine how much Bondo to make it a few feet wider!

    The cries go out! "POST THEM ALL"!!!! Well,you got it!! Now,please keep in mind...every single piece that you see on this car that is above and beyond the original shape of a Fiero,is BONDO!!! And,the SF shields and Cavalino emblems are Hand Painted!!! With Enamel paint!! They were all full of brush marks. REALLY thick,gooey looking paint.

    Well.......was a fibbin' or telling the truth! Just look and you can see all of the Bondo that is on this car. It's incredible! But,as I also said.I almost can't believe how straight and even that it is! This poor slob has done all of that work. Now,he's going to use about 30 cans of spray paint to paint it...unless...he just goes the easy way out,and uses a brush and roller.( any bets?) The first time he hits a big pothole or some Railroad tracks,it will fall off and crack into a million pieces! There they are,my friends,there they are! Sorry it took so long to post. I've been really busy getting my house and cars ready for Winter. But,I am keeping a camera in my car at ALL times,for the NEXT"Hand Crafted" Ferrari "Replica"? Am I crossing the line by even using that term? (I hope you enjoyed them!) The "Dream" lives on!

    Bill,the car was parked in front of a Loyola Hospital Satellite site,where I think that people go if they had a "Workplace injury". So,maybe this guy was there for a visit or something. I was just "Cutting Through" the lot,which is right by my house,and saw this thing. I stopped and looked at it. My wife was laughing so hard,too. I ran home as quick as I could to get a Camera,before it left. Good thing I did,as,something like this really needs to be shared! You guys would NOT have believed me,would you!? Sometimes,the truth really hurts!!! It's a good thing that he wasn't trying to replicate a '59 Cadillac! If he did,I'd want to know,so that I can buy some "Bondo" stock!!!

    That is just pathetic! I logged onto this thread first thing when I got home 45 minutes ago. It is only now that I can find the words! ABSOLUTELY lives up to the hype!

    One thing though....PLEASE tell me that you staked out the car to see what the driver looked like.

    ROTFLMAO!!!

    No,(LOL!) I was thinking that after the fact. Now,THAT would have been EVEN funnier! But,I'm thinkin'...:) Also, My 6 year old son just looked at the pictures...he put both of his hands up to the sides of his head,in a "Good Grief,Charlie Brown" manner. While shaking his head side to side. Even HE was laughing at this thing!! I'm glad you enjoyed the pix. See! I wasn't Bullsh*ttin'! Pretty funny,though! I am keeping a disposable camera in each of my cars,just in case,(more than likely) I see another one! I'll keep driving by there,just in case it's ever back there. Then,I'll try to get a picture of this "Arteeest"! Maybe he should get a job at one of the Automobile Manufacturers,in the "Clay Mold Department!" Thats right up his....alley!
