I was trying to keep it a secret!! There were a few complications. I 
can't beleive a Fiero Kit car is worth $24,000!!! If it is I won't give 
it to my kid like I planned. Just have to wait and see. (I'd still rather 
drive the Midget).

 Which, BTW I mounted the chrome wires on yesterday. Do they look 
sharp!!. And what a difference it makes the drive the car with straight 
wheels!! Only major problem - I really need to paint the Midget now!

Now, having lived in Wyoming in my earlier years, till I was 26 (notice 
no year mentioned, no age guesses!!). I have to say that I was part of a 
startup Wyoming Sports Car Club. Not enough interest to make it all one 
marque so we had a Mini, a Spit, a TR-6, a Pontiac Firebird Conv, a pair 
of Merc Capris, and I don't recall what all else. About 20 cars total. I 
suspect that it is currently defunct, but you never know. 

I'll head back home wit ya Mike to start an MG club there.
