This next Pontiac Fiero had an optimistic build — the GM L44 2.8 liter V6 had been boosted with a turbocharger of undisclosed size…but if the diameter of the intake tubes were any indicator…it has a huge snail. The little pushrod V6 didn’t have a chance and it is blowing smoke and running rough…but that is an opportunity. An opportunity to rebuild with forged low compression pistons and an fire-ringed headgasket so that this Fiero can be fierce again.

I know I might be in the minority when I admit to this next thing…but I have to come clean with you guys. I dig a gaudy interior on a crummy 80s classic. Yeah, you might sit there in your new Audi and enjoy the subtle grey textures on with flat black plasticized paint, but I’m gonna go bananas for a car with a white shifter boot and red seat inserts. You can have your dark mahogany carbon trim panels and I’ll take a Muppet bordello red carpet with a white steering wheel with a black horn section — because if you can’t wash your hands before each time your drive your Official Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500 Pontiac, then you don’t deserve to have one. But if you are true believer of the cult of Pontiac, then you’ve been double sanitizing and wearing a mask since 1984 because boogers don’t belong in a Fiero with this kind of an interior. Social distancing? HAH!! Nobody who has owned a mint Fiero has been on a date since about 1985, so take that! Find this 1984 Pontiac Fiero offered for $7,950 in Ozone Park, NY via ebay.

How many sub 100k mile revised suspension (no, it wasn’t Lotus, but in the final year of Fiero production the Pontiac engineers put a considerable amount of effort into making it handle better) Fiero GT’s exist on the planet? Probably only a handful…and the seller of this next one is asking a very reasonable amount of money. I’d give this a two yellow thumbs up!

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.

With all of the hubbub, clamor, and uproar about fake news and fact checking these days, you’d think that eBay Motors would have a dedicated fact checking team of experts checking facts and censoring bad actors in the automotive world. But here we’ve got a car listed as a Lamborghini Countach that should be as fact checked as a Trump tweet that came via Hunter Biden’s laptop connected through Hillary’s personal wifi server. This thing should come with a “some or all of the content shared in this listing is disputed and might be misleading.”…but…despite the warning…I love it. It has a Chevy V8 and a scissor doors and some hideous wheels — a great combo. Find this 1975 Lamborghini Countach Pontiac Fiero custom kit offered for $14,900 in Sarasota, FL via eBay.
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.

The average man looks at the Zimmer Quicksilver the same way he’d approach a jar of Peaches and Cream Body Butter (TM)…disdain and a total lack of understanding. But not you and me, buddy. We understand. We’d love to flick this Fiero based beauty apex-to-apex through the twisty hills of Kentucky the same way we’d slather our bodies in Peaches and Cream Body Butter and run naked through forest as deer and chipmunk nibbled at our backside. Ah, that was a wonderful summer…and it wasn’t a dream, it was real…you were there and you were there…and we’ve got the scars to prove it.
