I’m in on it. Calling the auction house today to set up an account. I’m debating on a top price for it. I’m nit going to $90k like the last one produced but I am willing to go to $30k site unseen. My yellow t-top was my all time favorite Fiero. I super regret selling it. It’s my favorite color combo!!!!

I think your number is fair but I believe it will do a tad more.

$33,000.00 to $36,500.00 is my number.

Good luck!

The price will need two people going that high of price and good enough marketing to fine those two bidders.

I have seen two yellow T Top 88 GT’s go for under $18k in the last year. Both low mile all options.

Not going to say it will not happen but I am optimistic.

Yes, I saw one a little over a year ago, with 11k miles go for $17,000 (It wasn't a t-top). Auction atmosphere can sometimes inflate the price, (like said above) if 2 bidders are competing. Keep us updated on what it finally goes for. Also, with any low mileage Fiero, you wonder if it's been sitting for many years, or if it was taken out and driven every few months, to help keep rubber and seals in shape.

We bid it up to $22,000. There is no way to tell what the reserve was. I’m not sure who the owner is.

I'm guessing turnout was light due to Covid?

That's a very fair bid. I'm surprised that you went that high. Lets face it, rare color or not, this is still a lowly Pontiac Fiero.
