Indeed!! heavy on the Mera "Modification" side too.
i would like to perserve the Mera collector Market so i/we in the Mera community would not like to see spot on 'Mera" reproductions
and the Wide body covers that, nicely. i only want to keep the Fiero Mera in its special spot in Pontiac history i do love 'em
1987-Mera X ----------------------------1986#6001 ProtoType--------------------------- Mera #8086

That's the Koenig Widebody for the Ferrari 308.
There was one on Barret-Jackson:

How much of the rear window shows above the decklid on a stock Mera? On my Stinger kit there's only 5-1/2", so if it's similar on the Mera, then dropping the roof 2" to 3" might look great from the side view, but I wonder what a 2-1/2" tall rear window would look like.

I own a 308 (bought without engine/trans and not on the road yet), and it has a much lower roofline than a Fiero, to the extent that I'm going to have to put significant effort into the seat just to be able to drive it.

A chopped Mera might look almost right next to a real 308.

Thanks for the info on that this is about how much window would be left without modifying the decklid.



and a little more red

That depends on what you consider a "much lower". If you're talking about the distance from the black belt line to the top of the roof, then yes, there's a noticeable difference in height, especially in the door glass. On the other hand, if you mean the overall height of the car, then there's less than a one inch difference in the height of the 308 (44.0" (1120mm)) and a 2" lowered Fiero which is 44.9" tall. Considering these are two different platforms, they're pretty darn close, nevertheless I agree that a mild roof lowering would benefit the appearance of the Mera and Stinger bodies in the side view.

On the other hand, I have a friend with a 308 GTSi and while his car is sleeker from the side view, it's also narrower overall by 3" in the front and rear views. Compared side by each, I find the rebody looks more muscular and lower than the stock bodied real car from these views because it's noticeably wider. That obviously changes when you start adding the extra width like the wide-bodied cars above.

I really like the ground effects on that one ! Did you chop it an inch I think you did but it's hard to tell from that distance?

I mean that I just barely fit in the Fiero with the stock seats (<1" headroom to the sunroof) and I lack 1-2" of headroom in the 308GTS with the stock seat. At stock ride height, the 308 doesn't have particularly slim ground clearance.

So from what you said, a Fiero lowered 2" still doesn't have quite as low a roof line as a 308.

I'm really surprising myself here. I can't believe that I'm thinking this car is better than the original 308, but I do. I still wouldn't alter a real Ferrari. How fortunate that we have the Mera which can be altered further to make such a beautiful car.

Thanx...Yes, I lowered the back of the roof about an inch, but left the glass the same height. I was looking to tear-drop the back, more like the 308. I wish I had a better picture from Rob, but that's the best I had.
Anyway, It's kind of what I want to do when I get my re-body.

The strut tower tops in the above pics are my work. Vastly improved the suspension performance compared to the original hack job.

^^agreed!^^
the "tri-angles" if thats what you refer to as the "Hips" are a seperate peice, but i think its glued on the roof something major.
so that would be something someone would only know/see if they were to do a whole Mera restoration

which i have someone in mind....wonder if they love taking pictures as much as i do

i like my mera much better than the fcar it represents. i dont care that its not an exact spot on replica. i can customize it into what i want and it does not cost me a fortune. 1987 pontiac mera, gm 2010 5.3 L33 HO aluminum ls v8, f23 fy1 2010 cobalt trans, cradle out of car currently for custom mounts all around. custom afco adjustable billet coilovers on all fours, fcar f430 19" wheels and tires, fcar f430/f355 4 piston brembos on all fours, still needs lotsa bodywork. only rough in done. interior is immaculate, low miles car. under 60k miles if i remember right, have to go look to be exact. i had big big plans in the beginning, but now just want it to run/drive and be simple... also took the sunroof roof clip off and made it a solid roof, so know its gtb like. also eliminated the mera gts style sail panels and am re engineering a lexan window to represent the similar of the gtb sail glass. also made the headlight covers more fcar like. prior owner had already installed new fcar badging all around, prior owner also installed a new fcar leather interior just before i got her, so on...i have subie sti 13" rotors all around on all fours too, crossdrilled with stainless brake hoses for the brembos. subie rotors have the same bolt pattern and very close hat height, works well with the brembos from the fcar. but who cares, build what you want and have fun. less than 5grand in her currently too isnt too bad.

danno, restoration hah...lol more like resurection/rebuild. if it wasnt a documented mera i would not have saved her.

Custom, i apologize but i dont post pics too often. it gets "others" ppl curiousity up on some of my other projects in the background noise of the pics. i have more hobbies than i care to share details about. batouisai has most of my pics as he and i are friends. if he chooses to share with you privately that is fine. i just dont post many up to the forum for personal reasons. and yes to those that say well no pics means no car, whatever i dont care. lol been in the mera world too long to make this stuff up. i can tell you more details about how a mera is built more than anyone else, period. unless you find a corporate concepts employee themselves. but plz custom dont take offense to it at all. i have shared pics before here and it just burns me in the end. i will tell you my mera was crashed beyond belief and held together structurally very well. it was flipped upside down and went down an embankment on its roof. so its a total rebuild of the skin basically. some suspension was hurt, gas tank was punctured, so on. it is now and has been on the back burner for awhile as i lost interest in it a while back. wont sell it, but other hobbies/projects have taken the fore front lately.

Well... that's a 288 GTO with Cali license plate, and that pit lane is the pit garage at the Fuji Circuit in Japan.

So something is shopped somewhere

Very cool!


I would imagine it's a 3d model, but I don't know for sure. I just found it online...

edit...

Here's a red version:


This may be the original, so I'm going Photoshop instead of model...

Anybody have any idea whatever happened to/with this car? Just curious yaknow Did the owner ever do an engine swap? If so, what did he end up putting in? Is it on the road today?

For 308 lovers, this, IMO, is the best of both worlds: Ferrari styling with American power.

TIA for any info anybody has.

HAGO!

Blueprint of the finished kitcar with widebody kit.

and the real deal


In the distant future Fiero Warehouse will offer the 308, 328, and add-on widebody kit. All the parts we produce from these moulds (including the widebody parts) should also fit the Mera.

As the title of this thread ask "Choptop widebody mera"? We can cover the mera and widebody. The choptop will be upto V8Archie .First Sage and I must figure out these moulds,then clean/repair, then build a kit for ourselves


All I can say is WOW. I don't like the front end, but I love the back end! I would love to see that rear end with a Fiero aero front end... With the wide front fenders...
