I know what you mean. I agree the Fiero was as good as they had in that era for that size car.
But some do get a little over the top and like to treat the space frame as if they were in a NASCAR Cup Car.
I too crashed one and still drive it today as proof of how it is up front. So there is a great value of strength but I would not temper it with some reality. While I walked away I have two people I know that did not. By the way it was a spin in the mountains and t boned in the side. The car snapped in half and they were killed. It was not a high speed crash either.
