    I believe the closest thing you will find to a mirage will be the B&B Spyder

    good luck and happy hunting.. I would love to find "THE HOLY GRAIL" of 355's *as well but it is tough

    f355_rydah:

    I'm sorry I haven't got back with you via e-mail or here... My fault entirely.

    Yes, I believe the Mirage is the Holy Grail of the 355 kit world and I'm lucky enough to have got one! What is different and unitque about it is that all the lines and panel separations are correct. The "roundness" that 99% of the other kits on the market has, is not there. It FITS like it's supposed to and you don't have to stretch the Fiero. The shipped gelcoat is almost good enough to be painted. Of course, nothing is ever good enough

    Anyway, if there's another out there, you'd be lucky to get it! At any price!

    I've been "Getting friendly" of the old principals from Mirage and have yet to find out if they are still secretly making them but I suspect not. They got hammered pretty bad by Ferrari. They are very tight lipped. Give me time and I may be able to ferret one out but no promises.

    If I do, you'd better be ready to jump on it! If I get that far and leave them hanging, it will ruin any chance of every getting another or getting some of the insider gear I've been able to snag.

    So, if you want to see pics of the kit and what panels there are, check out my Build site at: www.gopc.com/F355/F355x.html

    The site has been updated to include alot of the interior pics and such. Like I said though, I'm still digging through alot of pics to get them all up. Bear with me, I will add more, but there's already a TON of pics there. Enjoy!

    Email me if you have questions.

    I've got a lead on a Mirage 355!!! It is a Spider, WITH top mechanism and all the hinges, braces, etc. It's not cheap, they want $9500 for it all or $7000 for just the body. I told you I'd get into their inner circle eventually!!!

    E-mail me for details of offers

    Who's yer Daddy?

    Is that inner circle, those "people" you were speaking of elsewhere?* Are you looking to start up something * in the near future? ahem!

    Re: I'm trying to find a mirage kit

    No way! I don't want to be one of "those" people... I just promised you guys that if I found another Mirage, I'd let you know. There's a buddy of mine in town that wants to build a 355 in parallel to mine but wanted a Mirage only. So I've been looking for him for the past 6 months or so anyway. He wants a Coupe, not a Convertible.

    This body is a Convertible.

    Anyway, as I said before, jokingly, I thought about starting my own kit company just to prove that it CAN be done honestly. Perhaps that is what you are referring to

    What? No takers? Wow... that's hard to believe, what with my e-mail burning for the past 18 months about finding one of these!

    No worries though, I'm having a visitor this week to see the car and "hopefully" buy it.

    Luck!

    The major reason I am not interested in the deal is that it is a spyder. Like you, DKOV, I prefer the coupe. The price seems a little steep also, but how bad do you want to start with the best kit out there? It should not be to hard to sell thought ;D!! I am also a little surprised it has not sold.
    1961 Ferrari 250 GT California. Less than 100 made. My father spent 3 yrs restoring this car. It is his love, it is his passion, it is his life.<br />It's his fault he didn't lock the garage<br /><br />BobbyD
