FRAZEE -- More than 20 people from across the country came together this past weekend to fulfill the wish of a Frazee teenager with terminal cancer.

Tyler Shipman's 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT got the full tricked-out treatment and emerged from a garage in a bright yellow paint job on Sunday. A smiling Shipman sat for the first time in the revamped ride.

"It went really, really well," said Shipman's mother, Daneele Shipman. "I mean, they stayed up all night to work on the car. I think they got it done about an hour before they revealed it. They did an awesome job. It looks fabulous."
