Ok, you guys are going to think I've gone nuts! While perusing pictures of fieros on the internet I came across the Brickland. I can sort of remember these cars though I've never seen one in person. I really like the front end and wonder what one would look like on the front of my 87 GT even if I could get or fabricate one. Have I gone mad???

That looks like a Bricklin SV1. You could probably modify an early notchie nose to get that "huge bumperpad" look.

The hood itself does look a little like the Fiero hood

Bumpers and cowlings seem to be available from Brickland. I just can't tell if I would be turning an 87 GT jewel into a dud.

Looks like the body of one car put on top of a slightly smaller car.
Kind of old-school corvette-ish.

Doesn't work for me, but if it floats your boat

I think I am going to be conservative on changing any of the looks of my 87 GT. I can't help but think if I mix stuff up too much I'm going to have

I don't recall ever seeing the back of a Bricklan before. It's a little... odd.

It kind of looks like if you hit it in the front the rear bumper pops out. I think there is a reason one seldom sees the rear of the car. Perhaps because it is just so ugly or because they are always in your rear view mirror.......

You would be better off just buying a 308 kit front end. They look almost the same and at least you KNOW how it would look.

Apparently you'd get a turkey with an even worse rep than the Fiero. Basically a copy of the Datsun Z and with the 'safety bumper' looks a lot like the ZX, which in my opinion were fugly compared to the early 240/260Z. Gullwing doors like a MB 300SL, make it hard to enter and exit with the low seat. They had one recently on Fast and Loud and if I recall, Richard didn't get a lot more than for a Fiero when he quickly moved it down the road.

Ayup, the dam thing didn't even come with an ashtray, I saw one at a dealer when they first came out and was I think a senior in high school.

Right. That's because it's not a real Bricklin. Its a Bricklin KIT on a Fiero chassis. The real Bricklin doesn't look bad in the rear.

But to answer the original question that started the thread... "Crossing a Fiero with a Brickland begets what?"

The answer is "You get that thing in that kijiji ad!!

These things were made to pretty much appeal to young kids, they looked fast and different but they were slow and presumably safe (im pretty sure they were made of magnesium)

And that's somehow a bad thing? Gets bonus points IMO.

I smoke so it made it a no sale.

funny thing was if you wanted one they would give you a been bag ashtray, whoopee. I really don't think that was very safe for a car the said was a safe car. Do like Dodge does, they have inserts and a replacement for the power plug because you can't just put a regular lighter in those, they don't work for some reason.

Then reading almost anything on PFF (especially T/OT) should have you in tears pretty much all the time...
