    If it were built on a tube chassis and not a Fiero, with a good V8 and custom built suspension, with working glass and close attention to fit and finish.. there would be allot of people calling you. So yes

    No;

    I think for the money, I would go with a fully custom one off concept car or scratch built.

    kitcarguy15:* Fieros are getting pretty old and you end up working around more stuff on a Fiero than you do using the chassis I have found.* A nice well designed tube frame is the way to go for the next build for me. I would be interested in the frame though as you can build an body around a nice frame.

    Good Luck f40builder.

    Now that was a great looking car just to much money.

    If you could get a set of moulds of that with custom frame but a cheaper running gear as I think thatís where all the money went I think it would make a great kit.

    All the F40 kits I have seen all have issues with the front, to flat or to stubby.

    YES!

    It has to be authentic/correct looking but most importantly it has to be AFFORTABLE.....Just make and sell the body panels and forget about the mechanicals....Everyone has own ideas on what chassis and engine/trany to use as a donor. Let them worry about that....

    Best of luck

    are you talking about using all the fiero original parts? what if you strip the rest and use just the frame on the fiero? i thought builders always dump all the old fiero parts and replace all the rest with new parts except with the fiero frame. ???

    yes!

    only if it is on a newer model donor, such as a toyota mr2 mark 2, or mazda mx 6, huyndai tiburon and the sort...i know the sizes are too small, but any donor except a fierro and tube chassis (too pricey).
