I got some Hugger Orange from an old friend $100 for a gallon, and had to use it. It was so old it stank,  anyway here's some pictures, this is the old Fiero Jeremy and Andy had in 2015.

A little bit of disarray in the photos. Of the stuff on the engine that is painted is what's been off. Maybe sometime in the summer I can detail this better. Going to try to make it over to Road Atlanta for the meeting on Sunday for the 200ft skidpad.

Just ignore this photo.

I'll straighten out the Color when I get it Finished. that's just Clear coat no rubbin yet. I'm Terrible at pics so hopefully you can see the Chassis work that's been Done. Color will help there also. Engine seems to be Good after the Head Gasket repair, some minor Tune Issues, AKA Time and and that Green stuff/Or not.

Thanks Mojo

There is a Pontiac connection to that color...Chevy Hugger Orange was the same thing as Pontiac Carousel Red, which was used on the 1969 GTO Judge.

 As the Label say's, but yea being a Licenced Driver in 69 and a Follower of Arnie "The Farmer" Beswick really a Local Hero Here In North Georgia though not from here (Malvern Penn.) so Carousel Red  and Here Come Da Judge was Loudly Shouted. I have No problem using this Color on a Pontiac. Not good at updating so more when Done.

Painting a Fiero in a shade reminiscent of fire only seems natural.

This Car, This Color,

 I like where were going also

Harley used this Color in 69 Also on the Sportster , They Called it Jet Fire Orange

That is General Lee a Color that can be Too Much , I for 01, thought it would be good on a Small Car But this Sucker is Bigger than it Looks. really only 3" shorter and 2" narrower than the Vette Beside it.

 Mikey I 'm  Right here.

The color actually looks pretty good on there. 

 

It just that, as a guy who’s been inside a burning Fiero, it’s hard for me to not make a joke about it every time I see one. Like a right of passage.

Looking good, I am stoked to see this thing getting a new lease on life.

It's great that there are two active threads of people correctly fixing my parking lot builds.

I realize it may not be your first choice but Enterprise Commercial will rent you a pickup you can tow with.  My guess is $89 per day.
