We need to get the word out to as many car forums and car shows as possible!
If you are a member on any other car/truck/motorcycle forums, please post the show flyer listed at the bottom of this post.
Tell the story your way, or copy and paste what I have written below to simplify spreading the word!
If you are attending any other car shows around the US, Fiero specific or not, please print the flyers at the bottom and distribute them!
Spread the word!
In October 2009, a Pontiac Fiero enthusiast by the name of Tyler Shipman was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer.
He was 18 years old.
Posting on Pennock's Fiero Forum (www.fiero.nl), Tyler asked for some assistance from the community to finish some work on the car.
The Fiero community responded in force. A soldier serving in Iraq saw Tyler's plea, and stepped up to the plate.
3 weeks after Tyler posted on the forum, 25 people from the Fiero community arrived in Tyler's home town of Frazee, MN.
Supported by literally hundreds of people from the Fiero community, the community of Frazee, MN and the surrounding area, these 25 people, along with countless others rebuilt Tyler's car in a marathon 23 hour rebuild.
The entire build was broadcast publicly on the internet with full video, audio and live chat on www.tylerstoy.com.
Needless to say, the chat room was hopping at all hours of the day. All of the build videos are still available on that site, along with news stories.
Tyler has since moved on to the Great Twisties in the sky. A genuine car enthusiast, a genuine person, he will be missed.
Help the Pontiac Fiero community and the town of Frazee, MN celebrate the life and memory of Tyler Shipman at the First Annual Tyler Shipman Memorial Car Show, July 23rd, 24th, and 25th in Frazee, MN.
All proceeds will be donated to the MeritCare Foundation, Roger Maris Cancer Center research.
Help us spread the word!
