Reality and what the news says are sometimes very far apart. My experience has shown that Fieros are a hard sell due to the propaganda about always lighting on fire. Regardless the 88's still have appeal but your 84-87 whatever; try to sell it and see if you will get decent money. They still sell cheap.

I like the phrase "unwanted to collectable". It made me think of the '68 bug that I sold for $200. and was happy to get it.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but I think you're wrong. Over the past 2-3 months, I have seen Fiero values escalating. Especially 88 GTs and, to a lesser extent, Formulas.
Once that happens, I think the others will follow.
Not that I'm in a hurry to sell. Just an observation.

The best way to drive up the value of Fieros is to go to car shows, show them off, get people talking about the cool car they saw.
As long as Fieros stay within their own community, and don't go to all-brand car events, the values will stay low.
Get out there a couple times a month for cruise-ins, downtown car shows....if we owners promote them, the values will climb!

I agree. Rising prices are a good thing for all of us. It attracts more attention from newcomers and from the aftermarket. I don't know why we as a group are often so quick to shoot down any suggestion that prices might be going up.

Obviously rusted-out junkers are the exception.

Our group think also tells other owners that they will not get what they are asking. Trying to be helpful but .

Fox News says I am sitting pretty. 88 GT T Top, 108k on the seat meter.

Agreed. Members of our group show our cars at Car Shows throughout the summer.
I was out just driving yesterday, and I know how an exotic car driver feels.
People staring at my car while pulling out of a parking spot, driving by or sitting at the lights etc.

Seems to be the cycle with most cars. There is that sweat spot when the supply is still high and demand is low. I remember buying long nose 911's for $4500 in the 90's in "okay" shape. Total rust buckets with titles go for $45,000 now.

Fiero's are just starting to come out of this sweat spot. I sold a Caddy V8 Formula with 5spd 2 years ago for $4500. It was a nice Fiero, just what it was worth. I don't think I could buy it back for $6500 now.

Anytime I take my 85' GT out, it's the only one I see on the road.

Supply continues to dwindle, parts cars are still good supply. 5-8 years from now, there won't be any parts cars. Only "restorable" cars. Think of a 356, when was the last time you saw a 356 being parted out?

I agree with the many posts, whenever I go to a local show anymore, I get offers from several people for my 88GT, w/ 3800SC conversion, and that's with it next to several beautiful and perfect condition bone stock 87's and 88's.. maybe someday I will let it go, but for now I'm getting ready for the 35th!!!

Nooo! These cars catch fire! They ride worse than roller coasters. They fall apart, they rust. They might as well be Gremlins or Pintos; at least until I buy a second one at current prices. Then you may let the truth out.

It seems nostalgia plays a pretty big part in a car becoming collectable.
A car that you had when you were young or was popular.

I'm seeing more enthusiasm about 80s cars in General.

The Minnesota Fiero club, www.mnfieros.org is helping generate the enthusiasm with our car show www.backtothe80smn.com. We see excitement as we travel around promoting our 80s show too.

The other part of the supply/demand conversation should center on the likely market having more and more expendable income.

Many times, old cars begin to increase in value as those who want to relive their younger years finally get to a point in life when they have expendable income. As an overall age group, those who were teenagers in the 80's are finally getting to the point in life when they have extra money (50's). I realize there are exceptions, but speaking in statistics here . . .

The 80s American car market, IMO, will rise a little slower because it was such a dark time for American cars. Escalating emissions standards, low power, low quality -- whether Fieros, Camaros, Mustangs, or Corvettes, whatever. Again, there were exceptions.

The Netflix series Stranger Things season 3 is approaching mid-80's. Hopefully one of the high school kids will sport a Fiero GT. Such a popular show it would be great to have some exposure.

For sure. If you've noticed many radio stations are playing 80s music now.

Mid to late 70s and very early 80s were the dark times. Mid to late 80s were the recovery IMO.

If I may make a general statement, the Millennial generation doesn't seem as interested in collector cars as other generations were/are. If that's the future market that people are counting on, then how can prices rise over the long term? At car shows I seldom see many people under the age of 35 . If that is a correct observation, prices will fall
