Check out a video test drive review of this very car: 


This Fiero Formula was treated to a restoration in the last decade, including:

Repaint in its original factory Bright Red color. Factory “Formula” side decals have been replaced with elegantly ghosted lettering in the original font.

Interior is beautiful with virtually no wear.

Clean engine bay and front hatch area.

Custom alloy wheels in pristine condition.

Service receipts (from area Pontiac dealers) back to 1995. 

The vehicle runs, handles, shifts and brakes brilliantly! It shows amazingly and is very comfortable even for 6’4″+ drivers. 

Overall, this vehicle represents as one of the nicest Fiero Formulas still used on the road. 

Only $5,950 (+ttldoc in WA) – where can you find a mid-engine sports car for less? Call, text or email with any questions or for a time to come inspect.
