    That windshield looks insane. I bet its hard to get something close to that.

    It depends.

    I have thought about using a 93-96 Camaro Z28 since its got the V8 engine. The tailights could be Pantera tail lamps.

    I don't think that would be the best route and besides it would probably cost as much as a REAL M12 when its all said and done. ;D

    Going with this build there will be more than a donor issue. Jets303 said it best, finding a windsheld thats gonna work will be a pain in the ass and I'm all that experienced either at building cars.

    I have gone as far as to thinking about using a fiero chassis and building off the body from there or a camaro chassis since the fiero is identical to the W8 and the camaro is to the WX-3

    go with the camaro, it will be easier and faster and less work, the windshield is no problem, when you have the windshield frame done get it to me and i will get you as many windshields as you want, but it takes about a month'

    How accurate do you want it? If you use a Camaro, the front hood line will be too high. The original used a Chevrolet V8, mounted transverse behind the seats. You could start by purchasing a wrecked current generation Chevrolet Impala SS, which has a front drive transverse V8 with a heavy duty transaxle. Then build a tube frame to pick up the mounting points of the Chevrolet engine cradle. Or you could use a Pontiac Fiero chassis, but those are getting hard to find. If you want to use a Camaro, then consider cutting up the firewall and moving the windshield and side windows down and forward several inches. Then relocate the engine to the back of the car, using the Impala transaxle, and you are most of the way there.
