Can't see the decklid or rear window to see if it's an 84, 85, or 86...unless for some reason he wanted it to look like an earlier version. Could be a 1985 SE 2M6. Been seeing those popping up more lately.

I'm guessing 86 , seems the most common and it has a silver looking nose emblem.

I think so, or late 85 perhaps.

Hmm, interesting. Thanks for that. I only knew how to tell an 86 bumperpad car from the third brake light before.

He may have a way with words, but not grammar. That was quite a hoot to read.

Seriously, if it doesn't sell, he's going to increase the price?

Wow. That is one hell of a creative way to sell a Fiero. Love his wording and pricing strategy, can't say that he isn't thinking outside the box with this one!

Never saw an 88 V6 coupe (would be a Formula) with 14" wheels and a luggage rack. Wing was standard on a Formula

V6--Would have to be 85-88
Spoiler-Not on a Formula
Bumper pads--Unless swapped onto the car, should be an 85 since 86 V6's were either GT or SE with ground effects.
SE quarter windows--Probably narrows it down to an 85 SE. The side pic isn't really detailed enough to see if there are ground effects on the door.
The ad--He's got to be a juvenile.

The guy showed his stupidity by holding his cell phone vertically while taking the pictures, resulting in more ground in the pictures than car. I'm glad he didn't take any videos.

Welcome back, Johnny.

Someone should look this guy up. See if he owns up to having authored that ad. While everyone is entitled to a bit of stupidity, I hope this guy has no voting rights or reproductive ability, hopefully.

^^LOL^^

Yeah, apparently, he's had enough sex that he needs to sell it to someone else.

Just what a prospective owner wants to worry about all over the car. I don't mind some loose change, but I've gotta draw the limit somewhere.

This car is like liquid sex, the amount of sex you get a month will sky rocket with this car. This car should have been called the panty dropper because when the ladies see it there panties disapear like chris angel is hiding under the hood freakin ladies minds.....


That must only work on the V6 model

....bought the 4cyl 88....nothing

....converted it to a V8...nothing

Maybe I didn't drive it right...

Ive had some stock body Fieros, at least till I changed them. I never had a single girl ever drool over one. FAST is never a word Id use to describle a 2.8 auto. It may FEEL fast because your so low, but the speedo will show otherwise. 30 mph gokarts are fast too. Maybe he means he can afford more hookers since he bought the car so cheap....

If its very clean at all, $1800 is not that bad a price if it runs good too. His ad would have appealed more if it was just:

88 Fiero, 2.8 auto, clean and runs well.
