I'm not sure if this is the correct subforum but I wanted to ask about this one. It's two hours away from me which stinks and it looks bad. I am sort of day dreaming about it though. Bringing it back from the dead and being free to make it my own can be appealing.
I'd avoid it. There are many more out there for that price that would be in better condition. This one has a rear end problem, plus judging by where it's sitting it could have bad rust problems underneath.
It's a junker. Good to tear apart to learn everything about a Fiero and for spare parts but a lousy car to rebuild and put back on the road. I would offer $300. That's what people around here get when the junk yard comes to pick up a car, $400 if you drag it in yourself.
I decided to pass. Even if I got it for free it would cost more to fix it than it would to put that money towards one that actually runs. I just hate to see cars rotting like that. Maybe someone will get it and salvage parts off it or something. That just won't be me.
I got my first 87 SE V6 5-speed on ebay for $500. I put air in the tires and gas in the tank and drove it 8 hours home from NC to Kingsport. I also bought my 85 SE V6 auto non-running but mostly complete plus an extra V6 for $250. There's no guarantee deals like this are still out there but you did the right thing by passing on that car. The owner should either clean it up or part it out.
