While I was reading Jalop's "The Ten Most Sacrilegious Custom Cars Ever Built" I had the heartbeat that somehow a Fiero just had to be there. I was wrong. Thus I realized that no other car has been modified to resemble another production vehicle so many times, and in so many different fashions.

I think it was fit to make a Jalop tribute out of it, I will pick some of the best/worst examples of Fieros found here, since the Fiero, as clay, can be modelled into anything from Terracotta warriors to a 5 year-old's Father's day craft.

Of course, please add ev'thing you feel fits here, I plan to edit them with your suggestions, if any. Long live the Fiero!

10.) Fiero Fino

It is fine-o when you turn it into a unique one-off, since there's no benchmark to compare it, hence you can't loose.

Except you can. Bolt on it some bubbly headlights, add some gorgeous chrome alloys, and there you have it, starting at just $12,995!

9.) JISOD 8F402

While it might look like when choosing the name, somebody's head just fell over the keypad, it might be because they passed out when trying to achieve the perfect proportions for the car. Nah, really, I'm sure they just couldn't stand looking at it anymore.

8.) GT4T

Alternatively, you can come up with an ingenious name for it, and base it in a more acceptable, proportion-wise, "40". Although $kaycog could surely disagree.

7.) 512 tr FER@RRI

But, If you reeeeeeeally reeeeeeeeally want a car with the F-name, you can always do it better, both in naming terms and in fooling-forawhile terms.

Hey, this one comes even with a proper companion, too!

6.) Fierrari Enzno

But don't worry, little JISOD, there will always be somebody out there so bad that lets you be proud of yourself.

Kill it. With fire. Now.

5.) Fierrari Limo

4.) Ferrari Mera

And yet it looks good. This should be it for Fierraris, honestly. Classy, well-proportioned, and as reasonably loyal to the badge it wears as a replica can possibly be.

3.) Fierorghintera

And when you're done with Ferrari, where do you go? To Sant'Agata, of course. (Unless you are Chris Harris, in which case you go and buy a 2nd hand Ferrari and hoon the hell out of it)

Speaking of the Fierorghintera, you know all Lambos are wedges. You just know you haven't chosen the proper wheelbase when your wedge becomes an equilateral triangle.

I'd personally have called it Countachero, like a mexican remake of the Countach, but then it 'd probably be more fitting for a Ford Ranchero with a Lambo V-12. How cool would that be, by the way?

2.) European Medley

But in case you're done with the products of questo paese, you will certainly find more compelling this amalgamation of european origins. Resembling a Porsche Carrera GT, advertised as a Lotus M250 concept car, and way too quirky to be compared to any french car, it could be yours at only $10,200.

Even though a certain "german" engineer by the name of Wolfgang may disagree, Pimpin' beats Deutsche when we're talking about the classiest Fierro impersonation. Hell, if it's good enough to be an adult film actor vehicle of choice, should be fine for most -ahem- sizes.

Because Fieros can be transformed into wonderful things, even when they aren't transformed.
