I use to frequent this site a lot I was just like you guys a Fiero junky lol I use to have a 1987 GT five spend but I had to sell it times got hard and the family grew I got behind on a mortgage payment and could not catch up so I put the Fiero for sale my wife told me to not sell her to keep it. But I wanted to catch up on the bills and to be honest we couldn't afford another vehicle my wife had her daily driver a four door Mitsubishi Lancer and I drove a Chevy Tahoe and with four kids we needed to keep the truck to get around with the family the Fiero was the car that I needed to sell to help us catch up with the bills so I put her up on craigslist and in one day I got several calls from people that were interested so I set up the people to stop by the next day and the first person that stopped by took it home he loved it and said that's what he was looking for a good clean Fiero that everything worked so he didn't even argue the price $ 3.000 we made a deal and he drove away with my pride and joy when my wife got home she open the garage to put her car away and thought I wasn't home because she saw the Fiero was not there she figure I went for a drive but when she walked in she didn't say hi how was work how are you she said WHERE IS THE FIERO??? I told her I sold it she said you did what why did you sell the Fiero you love that car she knew why I sold it and it was hard on the both of us but she kept telling me you should have never sold it I can not believe its gone I didn't even get a last ride in her I said am sorry babe so now every time we are out anywhere and see a Fiero we both say hey FIERROO so the hunt is on am looking for a 87or 88 GT automatic because I know my wife would love to drive it too.

How long ago did you sell it and what was the color?

Good luck on your search for a new one!

Thinking of buying another Fiero by 323 valdovinos

WTF is wrong with you, didn't you bleed enough with the last one?

Sorry couldn't help myself, I know of all the vehicles I have worked on over the last 40 years or more that the Fiero is one of the worst to try and work on, for the most part because of space problems. But don't let me stop you, buy another one, cut some more knuckles, bleed some more, swear and piss and moan that you never should have bough the dam thing.

Sorry just couldn't help myself, I now have 2 an 84 stock parts car and an 86 SE we drive daily that really hasn't been that much trouble except for just after I bought it when we had to do all the superstructure work because it had hit something really hard. Other than that it has only needed,

an alternator, battery, trans cooling and brake lines, Tires, belts, water pump, calipers frt and rr, assorted rubber brake hoses, rotor, ignition module, coil, pickup coil, and probably more that I have forgotten. I don't think there was more than once or twice that I worked on a Fiero that I didn't cut myself. But maybe that's just me.

Good luck and I hope you find what you are looking for and don't get to cut up fixing it. By cut up I also mean the cuts your get in your wallet when doing anything to these wonderful little old cars that I personally plan on keeping running for as long as my failing health and wallet will allow me to.

Ayup, I am just as nuts as the rest of us on here.

Nope. Definitely NOT just you, Steve. If you didn't bleed, you didn't do it right .

Sharp edges are GMs way of telling you to take the car to the dealer. Be VERY careful with the support at the rear of the stereo. It's like an anvil with razor blades around the outside.

A Fiero is a great project car with a near timeless design . You can buy them at reasonable prices, install the upgrades and have something enjoyable to drive. I find them no harder to work on than many modern cars.
With a good engine swap and a few mods you can achieve Vette like performance at a fraction of the price.
IMO, the place to find the best Fiero at the best price is at the car shows/Fiero events.
