hey y'all. you talking Meras?i love talking Meras.
DLCLK87GT your avatar is sooooo true. super funny.
thats how i feel every fricken' time, with these damn machines. cept i wanna break the computer.
now as far as the Meras,
first, i must say as a Mera owner- i am happy that a "Good Mera" will and should run in about the $8,000-$10,000 range.
the cheapest i have seen in the last year+ is $7500.
i wanted that car sooooo bad. one State down from me too. dam. Mera #7020. i think
see, some of the value in my eyes is the Fiero Part of the car.
hopefully you get a low miles, good running engine. clean inside. may have had some work/upgrades.....poly bushings, new exhaust....ect....so a percentage of the over all price is just on a Fiero. the '88s being better as a Fiero adds even more.
so up to, say, $4000. thats fair, no?
when i got mine in from FL, it had new rear breaks both sides calipers and rotors. and the AC system looked "new".
but that will add to the sellers asking price, usually.
also with the demise of Pontiac. this may have a silver lining bonus effect. actually add to the value signifently.
Meras were, a Pontiac offered only option after all. it is to me a piece of Pontiac History. they should be included in the Pontiac "stable" if you. just like a old GTO or a G8.....when they are inducted into the "Automotive Hall of Fame".....hahahahaaaa
i feel another problem in finding a cheap stock Mera is, the Mirrors are like $1200 used, if you can find them.
the Cromodora Rims are rare (only on '88s) and are expensive. again if you can find some.
heck i have seen Mera 1 tailight sets go for a months car payment in some instances. A Nice Car, Payment!
so if you are looking for a "cheap" Mera.... other than a Mera Splash. the splash kits are the only, QuoteUnquote Cheap Meras, too me. kidding
look for a salvage Mera.....i have heard of one in HI..... they may start showing up more.
the Mera community keep getting bigger here on the PFF. so one may come up.
as mentioned above, save more money, be patient and one will come along and you will have a shot.
a friendly fact... be prepared for a rise in prices hopefully. this Pontiac no More thing may be something when the "collectors" find out about these Rare Pontiacs..... anybody got Lenos Number??
i mean good luck. and happy hunting. if i find some Meras for sale i will send them to you. cool?
