Nice! A dead-ringer for mine. Same color even (medium red metallic).

I printed the page in color, and stuck it on the wall here at the office....

I like seeing them on these lists. The haters don't understand the cars (as discussed at length in a previous thread). That over 300,000 were made does make the collectability somewhat questionable, but we know they are great, fun, affordable cars.

Not bad to be on a short list of 9 cars.

Interesting that it's the only one on the list that does not include the approx. cost today.

They made something like a million 65 Mustangs. Just last year my brother purchased a 65 Mustang stripper model in medium to rough shape for 4 x new cost (~ 2300$)=~9k. So obviously in ~ 19 years I will be able to sell my 84 for ~4 x new = $40,000 Yahoo! But I do have to wonder if I could actually even go thru with it and sell her for that? I will wait and see, maybe first $50k offer will get me to think about it!

To anyone who is fine with the factory handling difference, sure. When you get outside of the Fiero enthusiasts many folks dont know anything about the pre 88 differences, they just think they all look cool and are fun to drive. Some dont even know the fastbacks are Fieros.

Those anyones would be the people interested in collecting the cars; they will decidedly know. But even if (and that's definitely if) the 88s become something people collect and put in their stables, that would make the 'lesser' models more desirable as well.

But the GT tail light thing is going to become a bugaboo; not a lot of people will pay $5k or $10k for a car and then be excited to go out and spend $1000-$2000 for a decent set of tail lights. Then again, maybe if there's demand for them at $2000/set, someone will figure out how to make them for that.

The fact is they all will be collectable but that does not mean valuable. Corvarirs have been collector cars for years but not always worth much.

An 88 will be the car to show a little more value like a Convertible Monza Turbo is. Next the other GT models will retain value well. Then any V6 car will be just under them.

Finally any 4 will depend solely on condition but till will be limited in value accept for the pace car. Just too many vs. demand.

T tops in good condition will be of extra value and they will not have to be CJB cars as the truth is they are all the same. Just being in a 88 will be the extra value not the code per say.

Some modified car will retain value like the DGP cars that were built correctly. If they are real DGP even more if you can document it. Older options and special bolt on parts will add to the value too. The things you can't find anymore in good condition will be special as this car was made for many of these parts and many were advertised.

Rare options like the power steering, indy scoop, 1990 emblems or like the car that had the 1990 interior that was just sold will hold some special value. But even with that values will remain modest but slowly grow.

The fact is 30 years is not really that old. I remember when the 55-57 Chevys were 30 years old the values were also modest.

The one thing we do have is few cars from the 80's are seen as collectable. Corvettes are cheap. Camaro, Trans Am And Mustang prices are not great. The Monte SS and GN in all original condition does gather some interest. The Fiero will be in the group. Most other MFG had noting to offer. A Shelby GLH and that was about it.

Some guy called my fastback a Trans Am once! He found it unusual it was a Fiero.

I think its cool, and frankly I'm not that surprised. Seems Fiero's are getting more respect now a days... Most people only know of the Fiero as a Notchie Coupe, they always ask what my Fastback is... I think Pre-88 can be tastefully upgraded, and might bring decent money in the future. Who wants a stock Supra, the built ones go for lots... Im glad I have an 87, I don't mind chopping it all up . Then again I don't plan to ever sell it. Its cheap enough, definitely not worth it to sell.
