Zimmer was a well-known van conversion company who in 1980 decided lo produce a nostalgia coupe called the Golden Spirit. It used Ford running gear and that decade produced sales of 1,500. In 1986 GM designer Don Johnson penned the striking Quicksilver for the company, and while it was first shown that summer, it didn't start production until 1987. The car was based on the Pontiac Fiero so, unusually for a large coupe, it had its engine mid-mounted and handling was very good. The long nose was purely there for styling and was deceptive as there was no huge engine under it, though it did give incredible luggage space. The retro Styling also featured with the massive chrome fenders, as a nod to the glitzy cars like Lincolns and Cadillacs of the 1970s. The front suspension used wishbones, while the rear had struts, and discs front and rear uprated the braking.
