The worst thing about the flames is that when the fire department shows up they won't know if it's painted on or just another Fiero on fire.

No, that wing is designed to sweep air up over the windshield.

It's supposed to help keep bugs off windshields....

and to keep the front end from lifting at over 200 mph. :rolleyes:


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

A side effect of sweeping the air up over the windshield.

And keeping the nose down is important.

i posted it because trucks don't need downforce ;) its the idea that counts, not the aethestics, in this case (it does look good though). This was the first of 2 of such treatments I've seen, in my 9 years of driving.

downforce applys to more than just rear wheel drive cars....granted 99% of those are just ricer wings...but some cars actually need that...such as a cobalt ss which made a faster time with the highrise spoiler than it did with low rise.
