If you had a limited edition Indy 500 “Official” Pace Car Pontiac Fiero and wanted to maintain maximum sellable value, you’d think it would be best to keep the original iron duke 4-banger, but you’d be dead wrong. That is because an upgrade to a Chevy 305 small-block V8 is indeed an upgrade in value to the market, even if said 305 V8 has an air cleaner that is smaller in diameter than the average toilet bowl cleaning brush.

I hate to sound negative, but the typical Pontiac Fierrari kit car is a hastily assembled pile of bondo and Chinese sourced Ferrari badges covering an underwhelming driving experience…but every once in a while we stumble over a Fiero based Ferrari kit car that looks and goes like a real Ferrari…and today’s F355 fake sits on a stretched Fiero chassis with a longitudinally mounted Corvette L98 mated to a Cadillac slushbox auto.

Not every car can pull off this next shade of yellow without being accused of being a taxi cab or a school bus…but I think I’ll give this mid-engine Fiero a pass. Mostly because it has the desirable V6 engine upgrade (the iron duke inline-4 is terrible) and a manual gearbox, and I don’t mind that it is not the fastbacky GT version. Anyway, this Nuprin colored classic is ready for the next owner and priced high, but not insane given the 54k miles on the odo and the original paint.

Another day, another Fiero based kit car on the cover of Daily Turismo magazine. Whoa…we’ve got a magazine? No, shut up, I’m just trying to make it seem more impressive…lemme get back to this car. Anyway, this next Fiero is no ordinary Fiero — it has a 4.9 liter V8 from a Cadillac breathing through a Jaguar (?!) exhaust and is covered in a kit body that looks 2 parts Ferrari 308 and 1 part Acura NSX. It is simultaneously like peculiar and snazzy. Find this 1987 Pontiac Fiero Fierriadillac offered for $7,900 buy-it-now in Pueblo, CO via eBay.
The Pontiac Fiero was like nothing a typical Pontiac buyer had ever seen in a Pontiac showroom floor in 1984. First it was tiny for a Pontiac and even made the Sunbird look huge (it was 2 feet shorter in length), and second it had the engine sitting behind the driver’s back. Pontiac had been GM’s performance brand since the early 1960s, but this little road hugger was mid-engined! Imagine the surprise when you consider what was in every other GM dealership, people must have thought that Pontiac product planners had gone mad. At least they did until they popped the rear-hood and found an iron duke and then they realized that Pontiac hadn’t changed a bit.

I missed this car for the 4th of July and I regret it. Because there is nothing more patriotic than this next beast. Feast your eyes on the wind whipped star spangled banner on the hood and drool a little red-white-n-blue on that interior. This car is as American as aggressive foreign policy, tipping waiters, […]
Car guys will talk about paint in terms of the distance from which the paint looks good, like a “ten footer” or a “fifty footer”…but with custom Lambo/Ferrari/Fiero kit cars, I like to think of them in terms of the age of the oldest person this would trick into thinking it is a real Lambo/Ferrari/E-Type […]
The Pontiac Fiero was the runt of the litter in the sports car world when it was new, and was the brunt of many jokes in the decades after…but…if you are going to buy a Fiero, don’t fall for the V8 swapped monster or the ’84 iron duke powered original and instead get yourself a […]
The seller of this next thing starts his advert off with the casual question; Did you see the movie “Ford Vs Ferrari”? The answer, of course, is yes…but I do have a counter question; Did you see any Pontiac Fiero parts in Ken Miles’ GT40? Mmmmmm. I guess the guys at GM didn’t get a […]
Most Fiero based kit cars are miserable abominations…well…truth be told, they are all completely wretched. Most can hardly hide the Fiero underpinnings and only use basic rubbing compound the polish the turd that lurks beneath the surface. However, this next turd has been sanded, masked, honed, polished (multi-stage) and buffed to a shockingly good representation […]
