It is a collector car with a cult following. It isn't a standard Fiero, it has better handling, and _much_ more power. Fiero GT fans are willing to may _much_ more than book for a pristine example of the marque. Dropping the line was a real act of stupidity on GM's part. After they _finally_ got everything right with the Fiero line they killed it. Dumb. -- Aviation is more than a hobby. It is more than a job. It is more than a career. Aviation is a way of life. Processor cycles are a terrible thing to waste.
