Crazy Pontiac Fiero Seller Thinks His Mint Condition 1988 Is Worth $80,000

The Pontiac Fiero has generated considerably more funny stories than it has serious ones, and here we are, talking about yet another amusing Fiero-related event. We are talking about a Craigslist seller who thinks his Fiero is worth (please grab a seat) $80,000.

Sure, the guy is probably willing to negotiate. For one thing, the actual price is $79,999, but it’s still more ridiculous than all the Fiero-based Ferrari and Lamborghini replicas we’ve seen over the years.

Truth be told, the ’88 model received a bit of an engineering injection in the suspension department. And, with 8,100 miles on the odo, this is one of the freshest Fieros you can find.

However, the arguments mentioned above would probably justify a price that should be ten times smaller than what we see here - we have to tip our helmets to Redditor Y0USER for bringing the ad to our attention.

Then again, the seller of this Pontiac seems to be determined to play hard. “Asking $80,000 for this rare vehicle. Yes, you'll find Fieros for $500, but none like this,” the ad reads.

1988 was the best model year for the Pontiac Fiero, and the only year for serious collectors or tuners. This Formula edition comes with the notchback body style, the V6 engine, 5 speed manual transmission and a fully removable sunroof. This car will easily bury the dial on the 120mph speedometer,” the guy explains.

Still, if you’re willing to spend the amount of cash mentioned above on an 80s machine, you could stay inside the General Motors yard and go for a Buick Grand National GNX.

Those who prefer Euro contraptions whose prices have exploded over the last few years or so can go for the BMW M3 E30. You could probably buy two decent-condition examples for this kind of money.
