northstar fiero based kit car for sale

Hi guys, please indulge me as I introduce a special car for sale-sale forced due to health. There is a fiero/gm link so I hope it is appropriate. I think all auto enthusiasts will find interest in the vehicle. I started with a northstar fiero kit but I wanted something different and a lot lighter. I designed a custom chassis to use the existing kit and 88 fiero suspension components. Then found a glass body that with a few mods would fit. It is a semi replica of a Porsche 550 spyder. I need 20k for the car which is half what I have in it. If you have any interest email me at johnaustin9@windstream.net or call 575-336-7910 and I'll answer any questions. Thanks a lot. john

That is an interesting car, if you were closer I would love to see how it performs compared to my LS2 Solstice, good luck with finding the right buyer

Morning Jeff. My guess is they would be reasonably comparable. I like to predict performance based on lb/hp. My car is around 6 lb/hp without driver. Actually I don't know the performance of this car as it only has a couple of hundred miles and that is all parades and to and fro. I don't have the health or youth to flog it - in fact I have always had a throttle stop on it set to 50%.

BTW Jeff - nice collection! Especially the Sprint. Those were rare when new, I can only imagine in todays world. I've never actually seen one. john

Since the post has had quite a few views, I thought it appropriate to include some more pics.

Thanks John, I never can pass up a oddball performance Pontiac, Sadly I think I am going to sell the 69 sprint, I just do not drive it much now that I have the Solstice, and it really deserves to be driven.

I do like you car, it looks like a quality build. Would love to see it in person.

Thanks for the compliment Jeff. As the builder I am naturally proud, but being a lifelong GM guy I am also proud that the two donor vehicles were GM - the Cadillac NorthStar and Pontiac Fiero. All else was fabbed.
