Working on it. I only have one photo of it on this computer and its currently still sitting in my grandfather's garage in NY. I could not bring it with me when I left, so there it sits... collecting dust... probably used for storage at this point.

I miss it.

EDIT-
Here she is.

1985 Fiero GT
Automatic (sadly, gonna swap that chit out)
Background: Grandpa's friend purchased the car in 2001 with 142k on it and it was a disaster. He kept it secret from his wife and restored it. Replaced the engine and trans with BRAND NEW crate units from GM (still the 2.8L), replaced the entire interior and installed Recaro leather buckets, new dash, carpets, headliner, etc. He painted it Dodge Viper red. Spent over $11k on the resto... I only got $11k worth of reciepts for it but he said there were more.

Here's the kick. He did all this as a gift for his wife for their 20th anniversary. She hated it. Haha. He sold it to me in 2004 for $4500 and I've since redone the A/C.

Sorry for the HORRIBLE pic but its the best I have at the moment. Sadly, it probably doesn't look nearly this good now.

The 1984 4 bangers are the fire traps. All V6's were ok.

This one, no. Not yet. The slushbox is REDICULOUSLY slow to respond. It will be getting swapped... probably either with the MTX retaining the 2.8 or going with the 3.8 Series II S/C and using a Grand Prix automatic.
