Had this info posted inside another thread, figured some of you might not have had a chance to see the article.

Both Jimmy & I found out the author left out many facts we told him & he also added some things we never said.

I figured how to upload the article, did some photoshop to separate the two stories, the second one is how I think it should have been done. Added full size images below.

Very cool! I love to see when Fieros get some respect and attention, especially from a writer who appears to be fond of classics and muscle cars.

Only bummer is he misspelled Hulki's name! D'oh! Lol, he spelled it "Hulli". Oh well, great article either way, doubt Hulki's feelings will be hurt. Hahaha

------------------
(TRSX) The Zombiero - "Thrice resurrected"
1985 GT, 4 Speed Muncie, 3.4PR V6, 15" Lace GT wheels, Power everything, sunroof, Red with gray effects. Driven and enjoyed daily.

Fiero GT- 2 seater, mid engine, rear wheel drive, H.O. V6, manual rack and pinion steering, fully independent suspension, 4 wheel disc brakes, no ABS, no traction control, no speed limiter, available T-Tops. So, outdated econo-box or classic sports car? You decide.

Thanks, yes, I saw the misspelling. Of all the things to mess up ! He did do alot of research on the specifications to make sure the details were correct.

The writer is the co-founder of the Veterans Motor Car Club of America that has has welcomed the Fiero's into their club. I joined back in 1989.
This is the same club that puts on the annual Punta Gorda Car show. They are affiliated with the AACA.

Yeah it was nice of him to "Volunteer" my presence at a car show I knew nothing about till the article was released.

Hey Jimmy, not sure if I showed you, I had that story mounted.

I have the order number, they said since it's already been designed, they can make one for you at a lower rate than I got.
They can make the sign at bottom say JimmyS if you want.
