OK... I looked at the Solstice.... you can too at
... It's OK I guess.... but somehow I just can't see this being a
"Firebird".... to me the Firebird should at least be something similar to
the 3rd and 4th generation cars.... something long and sleek.... in fact the
car I wouls invision would be something based upon something more streched
out... the windshiled kicked back another 10 degrees or so and then give the
thing the same layout as the Corvette.... Front engine.... drive shaft....
and the trans sitting in the rear. (I would keep it a four seater too.)
A supercharged 4 banger? One wouldn't be able to muscle much more power out
of that engine -- and only time will tell if maintenance will be a big issue
in keeping that thing in fine running condition over 50000 miles.
