For the chassis, I am using a 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT. Until this project, I have never given this GM experiment much notice. But now, I have a fond respect for this little car. Even though the Fiero is over 20 years old, due to the mid engine layout, it handles very well. I enjoy driving it. I can also say that this chassis is well built. If I remember correctly, this was one of the first small cars to have a five star safety rating and it is all because of the chassis.

I decided to rebuild the suspension during the build. I am running KYB shocks all around and full Polyurethane bushings. Polyurethane was not my first choice. I just could not find new rubber bushings. I also replaced the front ball joints, tie rods. There is nothing on the suspension that moves that has not been replaced.
Integrated roll bar information will go here when it is built.
