Don't take this the wrong way, but I find this community to sometimes be way too optimistic. Something to ask yourself when taking on a project... What is it you want and what is it worth? Many times I see people want a million, but the effort isn't with half that, and it never gets finished. If you want station vibe but mid engine, toyota mr2 and pontiac fiero did it for you. You can grab a starion and mr2, fix both up very very nicely... And it will cost less time and money than the mid engine starion. But if you think you can do it, get the welder out and go to town.
