I'm generly know for doing crazy stuff. Just joking with some friends over the weekend (whiskey involved) we got on the topic of car builds. Now I would love to have my can't remember how many muscle car but to build one like I did before mortgage and kids would take a long time and not having the funds lime back in the day is be pissed when I break it. So we started talking about budget stuff. I've noticed a lot of old fleet s10 trucks for sale cheap. I'm also a wiz with the grand Prix 3.8 supercharged platform.
So now I have this idea for a mid engine s10 off a grand Prix engine and probably a fiero manual trans and do some euro style metal work so I can teach my kids how to do it and build the drivetrain and if they mess something up its cheap to replace.
Now that my life story is out can someone provide me with some details on the shift linkages trans size bla to mount to l67 etc so I can start building on paper

Put a 3.8 in a streached Fiero frame and with a shortie S-10 PU body on it. Kind of cool I would think. Then you could put one more FWD engine in the front and have a real interesting piece. Larry

More along the lines of fit to an s10 turbo and inter cool the 3.8 with a mass of zzp parts then put a fiberglass cast 4 banger in the real engine compartment and challenge people to race

Simple enough to build a 3"x2" ret. tube frame for the S-10 body & bolt Fiero suspension to it. Have you seen my VW build?
