People have been building these fakes for years. They use the Pontiac Fieros and then add on the bodykit. I know, my mechanic made one and sold one. lol!

yea I was gonna say. If you goto Ebay or even dupont registry, they have a section just for kit/replicas. I don't really see how they're making such a big fuss about it now when this has been going on for a long time.
