There's something I think would look good and would like to see but never have. A wing near the top of the rear window, think Boxer Berlinetta.

I like it better this way.



I love the look of this car! The color, wheels and no wing makes it look sharp.

I love wings, have one on almost every car...but for some reason it looks better without...not sure why I think that cause I absolutely love the GT wing.

This car is PERFECT!!!! I love the stance, wingless, and the subtle changes!

I've been thinking of doing something like this on my GT. Not as big and obtrusive as the Ferrari style spoiler there though, but something more integrated with the lines of the Fiero, and the sail panels, more like an extended roof section.

Something like what is commonly done on del Sols:

I think that would look great. If you get around to it you must let us see.

I cannot stand the wing in the stock location it has the wrong look for the car. I relocate the wing back sa far as I can and it gives the car a much better look.

Personally I just think it's too big. What other car has a wing hang off the sides like that?

Actually, quite a lot of cars have spoilers in the same style as the Fiero spoiler. It's not wider than the car on the Fiero either, though it might look like it does hang off at certain angles, due to the Fiero's body angles. There are many factory spoilers across all manufacturers that fit the body in similar fashion to the Fiero spoiler, though. Just do an image search on Google for "factory spoiler" and you'll see plenty of them.
