One of the four was a Forza Motorsport screen shot... LOL.

I'm guessing it's a gag posting. It has to be. Because nobody is that stupid... right?

"2.8 motor and MANUAL transmission." but it also has "automatic transmission, power steering, four wheel power disc brakes".

It is also a "convertible" with a "sunroof"!!!


Part of me thinks that it is a gag-post trying to scam people since the person selling it doesn't have a feedback score, having never bought or sold anything on eBay before.
But on the other hand, maybe this old (retired) person just decided to sell the car and made an eBay account, and being old, they don't have all their facts straight...

who knows...

It says at the bottom it is an "86 SM6 model" which I presume he actually means it's an 86 2M6 SE. If there is an actual car for sale, it is probably an 86 SE.

I was just about to post this. LOL

I sent him a question asking if this was an auction for all 7 cars. If so, he would actually be right about many of his "facts".

Maybe Philippine pesos? The last time I checked they were around 57 pesos per USD.

SO,I had sent this to the seller:

Dear tucktucker1,

Is this listing a joke,or do you not know how to fill out an add with real info and real pictures?

- coalminer1062

This is what he responded back with to me:

Dear coalminer1062,

Sorry the car is being re conditioned and some of the photss are "representative" from goolgle images., I willupdate as I get new images.
This is for Pomtiac Fiero "afficionados" and you should know this special car and dont even need photos if your are a real informed buyer or Fiero collector- IMHO

- tucktucker1

SO,now we find out the car is being "re conditioned ".....

All of you sitting on all those 2.8Ls with the rare 4 speeds better sell them now. They're worth thousands in just those parts alone. Never mind the fact I've bought a running and driving fastback for a $1,000, but oh man that 2.8L/2.9L/whatever-it-is coupled to the 4 speed/3 speed/manual/automatic is worth a small fortune. This may be your last chance to jump on such a rare deal of a car that has maybe around 40,000 others optioned the same way, but that only heightens how rare it is.

Come back next week when I let you in on that beach front investment property opportunity I have in Montana.

EBay Item description policy

Allowed:
Describing only the item you're selling in the listing and the terms of the sale
Providing complete and accurate details
Specifying the condition of the item
Describing any defects or flaws in the item

Not allowed:
Including conflicting product information in a listing, such as saying you have a 16G MP3 player in your title, but 8G in the description.

We could e-mail this gentleman at bestartmarketing@gmail.com and help him clarify his item description.
Decode his VIN, explain power brakes, that kind of thing.
Who knows, this might actually be a nice car, and he is not computer savvy.
Then again he could be just be "Another Idiot on Ebay".

I think I got the trans part figured out. It started life out as a 4spd automatic transmission. Then he lost 1st gear because the 2.9l from hell dropped massive horsepower down the line. After first gear was lost, the owner has to manually shift the auto from 2nd gear to maintain consistent torque loads. The transmission controller is not setup to shift past 1st gear, so it just causes grief with the intake narps. Thusly the trans is a manually shifted auto 3/4 speed.

I looked at a Astro conversion van listed that was pretty closeby. Described as perfect mint condition in and out and needed nothing. Id trade the Sebring for a really nice one. Both lower sides and rockers were rotted completely out, master cylinder was leaking fluid, seats had lot of burns, and it had 4 bald tires. I just drove up, walked around it and told him no thanks.

I notice the seller has zero feedback score. So either this is his first experience into the world of ebay, or someone created a dummy account to mess goof with Fiero "aficionados"

Either way, who the heck is bidding on that. Its like taking the mystery box when you could have gotten a boat.

It's the red 86 SE (the newly added pics are of it). But yeah, I'm sure he wants way more than it's worth.

Right, because the information he typed in the posting is so accurate.

It is at least an SE, and they are at least 4 pics of the same car. And Google at least doesn't seem to be finding those exact same images elsewhere, even if they are thumbnails.
