The chosen ones have always been persecuted. It does not suprise me one bit that people clown on our little beasts. When I was at O'Reillys (auto parts store in midwest) the counterguy was checking out my engine wth the fresh yellow powdercoat job when he said "Lot of work for a Fiero" Note, he drove a banged up Isuzu P'up with the way cool K&N cold air induction. I rest my case.
Im a cashier at a grocery store part time while going to school, and one kid is bragging he has a trans am to a bagger, and hes refering to me that i own a cobra mustang the kid says you do and i said ya and a hummer. I said i really own a tbird a fiero and a beetle. He says a fiero, those are cool cars. I started telling him all the mods you can do to them, and i made him drool. My work is done.

First I show the "MADE IN MEXICO" on the engine block, then I show my Halon bottle, then I can't help but start laughing. The joke is on them and the longer it can be drawn out the funnier it is. "I'm so afraid of that cheap plastic coming off in hundred mph corners." Looking worried, face straight. I shake my head and agree with every outrageous myth they speak and add my own to them. "When I'm really turning hard and all four tires are sliding, I'm pretty sure I smell oil on my exhaust manifold." Giving a hard stare at the offending exhaust tip. "PUSHRODS!!!" How could it possibly be functional?
