I've been working on this transaction all week and finally tonight I got around to going to the local DMV. Since Fiero's are soo old, our local DMV considers them Antiques and I needed to get an evaluation for tax purposes before I could transfer it to my name.
Anyways It's all said and done, the car is at my house now!
1986 SE 2M6, 20,000mi, 4 speed
I'm the Third owner, the First owner babied the car and kept it in a garage during his ownership as it was his pride and joy. It was never taken out in the winter or in the rain. He had to sell it when going thru a divorce and his wife wanted half of everything. He sold it to the guy I bought it from who wasn't a Fiero guy at all but who took care of it none the less. The car was garage kept for the past 7 years while under his ownership and he only drove it 2500mi during that time. Now he was getting old and going in and out of the car was getting hard, especially since it doesn't have tilt steering.
The car is a bare bones 2M6 and it doesn't seem to have any options besides possibly rear defroster. It still has to original Goodyear Eagle GT tires and original brakes and what not. The chassis is perfect and totally rust free. The interior is new. I swear it feels like a new car.
The car had 1 problem, according to the ad it needed shifter cables as they were seized. When I went to look at the car I noticed that they seemed perfectly fine and when I pumped the clutch pedal I noticed I got a bit of pressure and I could put it into gear so I was dead set on the problem being hydrolic. Well when I got home I hooked up rodney dickman's self bleeder tool and changed all the fluid in the line and the clutch is now perfectly fine. I assume the slave is going so I might just order a rebuild kit.
Besides that the headlights are "up" I'll look that up tomorrow but I suspect bad relays and the hard top headliner is saggy which I could fix in the spring. The car has an aftermarket chin that is slightly cracked and damaged but I'll probably remove that.
Overall I'm stoked, I never thought I'd get such a nice low mileage car for a real song and dance. I've got paper proof of the mileage including inspections and evaluations. I still can't believe it.
It's dark now and I'm so tired from all of this, pictures shall be posted tomorrow
