Long time no update! It's bittersweet news, but the all wheel drive Fiero hybrid has been sold.  I haven't given it much attention lately, as I've been distracted with other projects.  I decided that it made sense to pass the torch ...

It was only a few seconds, but apparently the car was on the Speed Channel on Sept. 11, sneaking into the Grand Challenge video: http://www.grid1.tv/?browse/media_vault/tribes?id=1_227#browse/media_vault/tribes?id=1_227   It's about 30 seconds into the youtube video.

As promised, time for more updates with pictures. As mentioned earlier, we've fabbed up a battery box out of HVAC sheetmetal, so it's pretty cheap stuff and is fairly easy to form.  Aaron did most of the sheet metal work on ...

I haven't made time to post pictures lately because I've been swamped.  Progress has been a bit slower than I had hoped it would be over the last week or so due to lots of reasons.  Oh well, I keep ...

Piles of wires

Well, I feel like I'm past due for an update.  Most of the work I've been doing lately won't really be noticed once it's done, but as I've said before in this build, that's the point.  I want things to ...

The car made it home last night. I put about 2500 miles on it round trip, including four passes down the drag strip, several hours in stop and go traffic, and several long mountain passes. I was really impressed that ...

Well, Jessica and I made it to San Diego in the Fiero under its own power...a feat in itself! Over all, the trip was quite uneventful. Unfortunately, we left late enough that we didn't have time to take the Pacific ...
