Start your own build thread. BTW considering the difference in the aerodynamics, what kind of mileage would you expect from the Firebird?

Will do. Considering the changes and the aerodynamic issues, I'd be happy if I cracked 40mpg. (Wishful thinking?) Considering the original car would barely get 18mpg on a good day, even 36mpg would be double what it was.

New thread coming!

So then the Prius people get upset. "You ruined a 50 MPG car!"

"I created something beautiful!"

"Yes, but it doesn't get 50 MPG!"

Oh well. Who cares if Prius owners are upset?

I would convert a Saab Sonett over to Prius running gear. The Aero is a little worse .32Cd but it would be made up by the 1900 lb curb weight. The other up side is the Prius running gear makes 24 more horsepower over the Saab's stock V4.



One downside the car isn't made for anyone over six feet tall.
