I saw this on NBCSN, and it immediately caught my attention. I liked how one of the commentators mentioned that because most of these cars have been beat into the ground, we can expect some appreciation on nicely preserved examples. He then compared it to the Vette and went through the usual Fiero highlights. While I'm not holding my breath for a price increase, I've noticed some 80s cars have gained collectibility.
I never realized there were lenses over the tail lights. I thought they were a single piece. So the lenses are scarce now? Have people been obligated to drive without the lenses because you can't buy them? I have never seen a Fiero without them though. Would be interesting to see how it would look without them. Any pictures?
That's interesting. I think the Fiero might actually become a higher priced collectible in the future.
The whole kit car thing has put a really bad reputation on it along with the initial problems of the early cars. But because Fieros are being cut up to make kit cars it also means neat condition stock ones will only become thinner on the group. Rarity is one of the important things in making a car an expensive collectable. The others are good looks, a special history, and the car being innovative somehow for its time. All these the Fiero already has in spades. So if it becomes really rare, I see it becoming an expensive collector's car in 10 or 20 years. It will never command classic Ferrari and Porsche numbers. But it can be on the level of classic Lotus and other similar cars. It deserves it!
