A Fiero member from our club spotted my old Fiero on Craigslist...it's rough, but not so terrible that it can't be resurrected. Here is what I have to work with if I buy it back:
To be honest I thought it would be rougher:





As it appeared before I sold it..





Cracked tailight, paint bubbling on the side skirts, and the front spoiler is gone yah that's no suprise...he still has it although cracked.

I dig it all except the raised spoiler. But I was just never a fan of that anyway. Man, looks like life is sending you the message that your old Fiero wants you back.. Answer it and grab her.

Heh, I saw that one up on CL, I thought at first "hey, not bad. It's tasteful in a way..."

Now that I know what it USED to look like.... Daaaaaaaaamn, wtf did he do to it? I'm guessing some little kid bought it or something like that, then beat the piss out of it? Jeeeeez.

Go for it! Rarely do we get a chance to buy back a cars we've sold. Why don't the new owners ever take good care of them? Anyway, love that movie RAD, nearly wore out my VHS copy.

True...I still have dreams where I am able to buy back my first car and that was 22 years ago when I sold it. I'm sure it's crushed and in a landfill by now.

$2800 with the rims, it's a very reasonable price. Make it 2500 and you have a great ****ing deal.

It was medium metallic red with a lighter hue to it. The car was lower about 2.5 inches.

I seem to remember a post awhile back that had a similar car in that was in an accident with the front end. This isn't the same car is it? The only reason I remember it is because I absolutely LOVE that car, if I had a GT that would be the exact look I would go for. Hope you get/have it back and give it a good chop!

Hey guys an FYI that I did NOT pick up the car, as for it's current status I couldn't tell you. I do hope someone will do a good thing with it and make it a sweet Fiero once again!

The decklid scoop is in fact an older mustang scoop, they look so proper like an original piece on the GT lid.

I have been doing many things with my M3 and as of now don't plan on getting a Fiero, however that doesn't mean if a decent deal comes along I won't buy it to modify and play with later!

He beat the livin sh*t out of it is more like it. It probably wasn't even washed once and the guy only had it for two years?
Even once beautiful Fieros can end up in junkyards and unless the seller is prepared to really drop his price, this one will meet the same fate.
