Hi vibe people,
Recently acquired a 2009 vibe 2.4 that my coworker was going to junk has 220k miles or so, going to use it as a casual project,set it up for autocross then 24 hours of lemons (road race, buy and build a car for 500 bucks minus "safety" items). i will be stripping the vehicle (if anyone needs interior parts), Lowering, setting front and rear alignment angles and finding needed clearance for 17x8 with 245 40 17 tire. Who knows maybe some of the junk body parts from my firebird will find there way into the mix . I fully understand this is a doomed project, so were gonna try to get creative, learn a few things and laugh all the way to the junkyard.

Cheers,
Paul

Paul. Where are you located? If any of us are interested in parts we'd have no idea where to go to get them or how far they'd need to be shipped. Update profile for us ............... Thanks! Oh, also ... very interested in seeing this project materialize. Post LOTS of pics as you make progress with it. Good luck! ;)
