    project Corvair with 3800 Fiero-style

    I have a 61 Corvair, now has 3.8 Buick and th440, Fiero-style.
    Exterior is fiberglass, don't think it was a "Kit", exactly.
    But, it sure doesn't look like a Corvair!

    In the rear, I'm thinking to go to upper control arms instead of struts, to make room for wheels under the bodywork.

    I think the esthetics are better if I don't flare it.

    I've seen posts by one of your folks in another forum, and it led me here.

    I have photos on my site (below)

    It looks old school so I'd keep it that way as much as possible.

    Red paint, no flares and maybe even some wire rims with spinners or plain black steel rims. I wouldn't try to make this car into an exotic but rather an older style race car.

    Jay,
    From reading your posts you have done a lot with cars. I like your sense of "adventure". This one looks like it could be a lot of fun and certainly different.
    Keep us posted.
