Why do I suddenly need an orange car of small proportions and dubious lineage?

Not being an expert on Fiero I can still tell you this is not a 1985. Fastback GT were introduced as a 1986 1/2 addition to the model year. Those with keener eyes will be able to note inclusion of features more closely fixing the year of manufacture.

Not being ahhh, overly enamored of this model. This is still a striking example fostering imaginative decision making. Speed holes seem a particularly ripe area for further personalization following along with the flame/charred motif.

At the outset this looks every bit an enthusiast car deserving of a good home. Even the smoked tail lights are inexplicably right. The always roiling internal debate wasn’t banked well enough against this fresh wind that somehow snuck by. Quite doubtful a purchase this ironic and hard to explain away being seen in, ever, is possible for me to accept. Would make a great gift?

As a side note. Discovered this used to be a thing and coining of the term “froot.”
