whole lotta car for a whole lotta money
thought i'd post this here for a discussion on what is a "fair and reasonable" retail for a well thought out swap vs what a stock pristine Fiero was/is worth not modded or a light mod and some cosmetic add on.....and such

Clean-looking car. Obviously Sellers are at liberty to ask whatever price they want. It only has to be worth that price to one person.

I don't think I'd pay that for that car, but I would love to see a nice Fiero go for that price- we all seem to complain about them not being desired collectibles, but then tend to complain when people ask higher prices for them. Can't have it both ways.

For that much $ I would expect a steering wheel that isn't pooched.

I spotted other things also. Hmm it looks like the exhaust is smaller than what I have. Fits better. Must be about 2-1/4"

Just outside my neighborhood there is a consignment dealership that usually has a lot full of classic cars during the summer months. This year there has not been a very good selection of desirable classics. But about three weeks ago a 1986 Fiero GT appeared on the lot. It's gold over silver and I have not walked over to check it out, but driving by the price tag dangling from the rear view mirror lists the price at $15,995. For that kind of money it better be showroom new with less than 10,000 miles, or have a good engine swap that was professionally installed (Archie).

I am not impressed with the "mess" of wiring and lines and such. The conversion that was done by PO on my car is better looking. I dont care for the Ford Blue paint and some other items but sure seems cleaner than this way over priced car.


Here is an install by 2 Seat Garage,

the cheaper the better I say!! gives me more room to play with Horsepower mods.
I got 2 screaming deals. 1st on a sweet 1987 Mera. 2nd a 3800 SC swapped 87 (blue) SE. then, I had them merged.
but still, even all said, delivered from Florida and under this '88's stated price.
I have no room to boast here cuz I broke the current swap and some think I need a Series III anyway. I agree wholeheartedly
even have $1,100 on this '88 already to be even. that should cover the labor, eh??
now i just wish I could find a low mile 3800 SC Series III, tho.

I really like the look and the price of that 3800 SC '88......This is the new price direction of Classic analog sports cars.

How did you break your motor Dan?

Thanks
