The Pontiac Fiero was designed by George Milidrag and Hulki Aldikacti and launched in 1984 as the first sports car from Pontiac since before World War 2. It was suprisingly popular with more than 370,000 units sold in the 5 years of production, but ultimate fell to GM’s corporate axe men, who couldn’t see a car that needed some minor tweaking to be great and instead just saw something that wasn’t selling well to the rental fleet companies. Today’s Fiero has a supercharged 4.5 liter Cadillac V8 and a decent number of other modifications to make it fun. Find this 1984 Pontiac Fiero offered for $5,200 in Valley Center, CA via craigslist.
