Thread: New custom car

    New custom car

    Hey guys! I am new to this forum, but I have been looking into building my own custom car for about two years now and have been researching alot about them. I currently have a shell of about what I want my car to look like. Right now I want to decide whether or not to build my own frame or have it professionally done. If anyone wants to see my design email me at sehnsucht_musik@hotmail.com. It is loosely based on the diablo with a targa top. I was thinking of using a fiero frame because the design is somewhat close to the diablo, and I could get it registered easily. I have never made my own frame before. Can anyone tell me how to modify the fiero frame to withstand 500+ HP. Or how much of the frame I need to keep the Fiero VIN and make the rest from scratch. Thanks alot guys.

    Are you interested in sharing your pictures here? If so, e-mail them to me and I will post them..

    By the way, from what I know, the Fiero frame is not the problem with the horsepower. It is the elements that you bolt to the frame that you have to worry about.. such as axles, tranny, etc.. The Fiero frame is very strong.

    Welcome to the forum,a cross between a Lambo and a Ferrari.A Lambari.I like it.Back to your question 500hp sounds like you may need a custome frame,Like this (not mine).

    Thanks guys, the reason it has no headlights is because I could find a way to put them on there without ruining the look of the car. I tried these before but didnt like them too much. Right now I am starting the interior.


    I have been thinking about a custom frame alot lately. The problem with this is that it requires much more work to be registered. So I am thinking of taking the floor pan, or something that would have been in my frame anyway off of a fiero, but I am not sure how much I need to keep it under a kit car title. I am currently studying Diablo frames and will look at fiero frames to see what I can keep. Does this sound reasonable or should I just go with an entire custom frame? Thanks
