Just a note here on the Keith Martin American Car Collector Magazine. It has a two page assessment of the Fiero as a Collectable.

The story is really nothing new and very honest. No new ground was covered but nothing to inspire prices to go through the roof anytime soon,

They compare the car to the Corvair and how GM underfunded the car from Sports car to parts bin Commuter status. Then how Pontiac was slowing fixing all the things they felt it needed only to have the plug pulled.

It addressed the fires as a connecting rod issue which is one of several true options here. It covered the last year as the best and put a shine on the Formula. It failed to state the 88 suspension parts as being more difficult to find. But they did state the issues the car has are not unlike any other FWD GM car of the era. It also said the Fire issues have been addressed.

They state the regional clubs are strong and it has a good fan base.

The over all rating for collectability is a C from the ACC which is fair as an A is a Dino Ferrari and a F would be a Chevy Chevette. They also value the average range of $4,000-9,000 for good cars. Note that does not include the low mile high end models in perfect condition or the $1000 fixer uppers. ACC cars are generally all road worthy cars of normal wear conditions.

If you collect article is worth the buy. The Story was fair and did no harm to us.

I found mine at Barnes and Nobles today Look for the July August issue.
