Either the nose (similiar to this one) or have the rear half, where the Decklid is the desktop (might need to get creative on the middle portion where yer feet go)

I was thinking about doing something like that with the back end of a notch back before I junked it.
I think it would make a cool hutch/computer desk

A Fiero one with functioning flip ups, the underhood area could be storage.

Nice!

The only problem...have you ever brought car parts inside your house? They are deceptively huge. A Fiero front or rear end would be disproportionately huge compared to normal furniture. Okay if you have a huge open space like in the picture, but for normal sized homes not so much.

True, Very True.

But it would be great on the back patio maybe a grill and ice chest.

Then it would be catching on fire all the time.

Okay, with that said, I would be concerned with insulating the skin panels so they don't REALLY catch on fire/melt.

These things come apart, you know that right?

I take it you never heard of the college students who disassembled the deans car and reassembled it in his office?

If you want to do it I would use the front end, then put one of those plate glass desk top covers on top of the hood. of course you are going to have to level it on the hood. you don't need to bring the entire front end in, just the parts that make it look like its all there.

back when I restored my 76 Cobra II long before the idiotnet and you had to buy magazines and search for parts and make phone calls. Melanie found a new hood for it, had it shipped from Arizona to the house as a birthday present. it came UPS twice, the first one was bent in half, she refused it and called the place she got it from and they shipped another one. that one made it there just fine. When I got home from work it was stood up in the living room with a bow on it. and we were living in a condo at the time so its not like we had a big house or anything.

How can you not love a woman who does sh!t like that for you. I got a picture of it all done waiting for tires and rims someplace around here and one on the back of the top of my job box. I think one has Amanda sitting on the hood when she was just 2 years old, of it not sure what one is in my job box.

It's just an observation but every time I bring a body part into my living space I'm always surprised how much bigger they seem compared to being outside or even in the garage.



And I would have to see proof that anyone ever dis-assembled a car and re-assembled it inside the dean's office. That sounds like an urban legend or an episode of the Andy Griffith show. Neither cars of old or modern space frames easily submit to dis-assemblage.

Edit - It seems there is some evidence that people have actually performed this prank with the old VW bugs, with a few caveats... the cars were trashed to begin with, probably didn't have motors, and they weren't so much disassembled as body removed from frame and carried in by a group of strong guys.

http://www.relitech.com/prank.htm

You could take Fiero body panels and prop them up with duct tape and get the same effect a lot easier.

Not sure if anyone has ever taken the Dean's (or whoever's) car apart and reassembled it indoors in perfectly operating condition.
