    I really like where you're goin w/ that, but is the front open-wheel or what? And what's with the little hump in the rear 1/4 window? How about a more gradual incline instead? Also, being a Fiero, I'm assuming you're making that a mid-engined car? How about a smaller nose then?

    No open wheel wells here, just a very low ride, with an extremely short front overhang.

    As for the engine mounting, I designed it with a front mid-engined mount (similar to an S2000) instead of a rear mid-engined mount, just because I rather dislike extremely short front ends. As for the window "hump" I just wanted to mix up my designs a little bit, and add a little interest to them.

    Alright, gotchya, just looks like a front open wheel design as it doesn't look like there's anything above the wheel... and gotchya about the engine mounting.

    Now that you mention that, I can see a little bit of the Z/Urge in the shape of the nose... oh well. lol

    Not a bad start, needs some more detail before I can decide how much I like it. Looks front engined at this point

    Very cool. I can see some S2000 in it. Wheel wells are huge as said before. Maybe a 3/4? Like the window hump too, reminds me of that on a '69 Camaro.

    it looks like the back end is a lot more angular than i think pontiac is moving right now. well, based on the solstice at least.

    a bit more sexy, organic shape and you'll have a winner.

    Re: -f-i-e-r-o-

    i agree with runningshoes, needs more curve. also, as much as i'd like to see the return of the fiero, i'd like it to be a mid-engined pontiac, as NO gm brand has a ME car right now.

    :EDIT:
    how's about we solve this engine placement crisis and change the name to FIREBIRD!

    think of someone that you consider to be of average intelligence...
    half the worlds population is stupider than that person.
