After a few days of being tortured by depressing kit-car Fieros, now it's time for a modified Fiero that isn't lame. The 4.9 Cadillac V8 swap is becoming a fairly popular one and, while scoring much lower on the Rad-O-Meter than a Northstar swap, we like it for its junkyardy bang-for-buck simplicity. Here's an '88 Fiero (the one with the good suspension) that's been treated to a Caddy 4.9, Muncie 4-speed, and body modifications that retain the car's essential Fierosity while not triggering an intense urge to projectile-vomit. We'd like it a lot better with some form of forced induction, of course.
