At the end of Jay Jenos garage last night (8/9/2018) during the Assess and Caress with Donald Osborne portion a red 88 GT T-Top was one of the three cars featured. They claimed the GT increased in value 21% in the last 5 years, but was lowest of the three cars featured. But overall good things were said about the Fiero, which is nice to see on a TV car show.

Cool. I have been patiently waiting for Mr. Leno to feature the Fiero on his show. I find it odd that he hasn't yet beings the Fiero is the only place holder for a mass produced mid-engine car in the US. He loves the Corvair, why not give our favorite 2 seater some love!

When i was a kid, the Corvair was the car that i wanted. i remember seeing them in the showroom when my dad was shopping for a car. He ended up buying a 64 Pontiac Bonneville. Later i drove a VW bug and bus. Perhaps that is why i gravitated to the Fiero.

Back in 1969, I bought my 2nd used car, from my after school job...it was a 1964 corvair conv...4 speed....in 1971, I replied the original 110 hp...with an engine from a corsa...the non turbo...140 hp beast.....loved that car....my first 'new' car...bought when I came home from the service....in late 1972, was a new '72 VEGA GT. 4 speed with psi-traction.....yrs later, I finally got that FIERO. '87 GT. 5 speed....with only a little over 60k on it...and it has spend it's entire life on the west coast...before I brought it to good olde Elvis land....Memphis !

It is nice to see the Fiero get some deserved attention, but I am glad it happened after I got mine!

During the last 6 months I have been watching the market for Fieros. It seems to me that the value of the GTs, more so with the 88's, has been slowly but steadily rising.
I was beginning to wonder if I was going to get one... As I became a little more able to buy one, the value seemed to rise just enough to keep what I wanted out of reach.....

I will agree that the price of the 88GT's has been rising. It was a one year limited production car so its fits the price formula. . As for the 84-87 Fieros, IMO the price has at best been stable. Still a cheap cult classic but that's why we own them. Fiero owners tend to be a very stingy group.

I'm glad a Fiero made it on the show. Can't wait to see it, anyone have a link ?

In 1982, I bought a restored 65 Corvair Monza convertible top, auto, 110 engine w/ 140 exhaust. When the 84 Fiero's came out, traded the Corvair in for it. The dealer bought the Corvair for his own collection.

The car they used on the show was not totally original but looked very familiar. Very hard to forget those red wheels as well as red mirrors. It would have been nice to use a 100% stock, original, un-cut, as off the assembly line car. But, just seeing one at all getting good press time certainly was refreshingly cool.
