Fiero Enthusiast Tyler Shipman Passes Away

Tyler Shipman, the young Fiero enthusiast with cancer who finished his project car in December with the help of the Fiero community, passed away last night.

As you'll remember, Tyler Shipman was working on his project car when he was diagnosed with a debilitating cancer. After failed chemo and radiation treatments Tyler elected to spend his days at home with friends and family. When the fellow mid-engined Pontiac lovers at the Fiero forums heard his story they gathered parts and a crew together to complete the car in a weekend.

It's a touching story and, though Tyler is no longer with us, the well documented build includes a lot of photos of an extremely happy car enthusiast. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and fellow Fiero fans who were joined together by this very brave young man.
