I know, I know... it's not a Fiero... but it is a mid-engine car, with dated technology. And oh yeah, it was filmed here in Vancouver.




Surprise surprise... it was discovered that racing around on a wet track with 17 year old tires may not be the brightest thing to do!

This car would not be practical to have in Southern California, where many of the parking spaces are sooo narrow that the overhanging door panel would force the occupant to slither out toward the back, since you can't stand up. But I still want one ...

So Zero to Sixty in 3+ seconds, in First Gear!

BTW, I think Archie's GT40 kit still looks pretty nice compared to the $400,000 super car.

I suspect narrow parking spaces are now quite common everywhere. It's not unusual for me not to be able to open the driver's door of my Formula any further than the first "notch" without hitting the car parked beside me... even when we're both centered in our parking spaces. I know our doors are rather long (and therefore stick out more when wide open than some cars), but geez, what a nuisance.
