I know that it is considered gauche to take a Pontiac Fiero and ruin it with a garish Ferrariesqe body kit…but this next one is so over the top that it might not upset the Fieristi. They are a notoriously difficult group of people to keep happy. Find this 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT offered for […]
This next car comes as a tip from Cory who writes: who says there are not deals out there? That’s right! There are plenty of good deals when it comes to front-drive American sport sedans that are powered by supercharged V6s. This isn’t the LS4 V8 powered GXP, but it is the GTP with the […]
The Phoenix was a compact GM offering that lived on the rear-drive Nova platform (1977-1979) and later switched to the front drive Chevy Citation X-Body platform shared with the Buick Skylark & Oldsmobile Omega. This early Phoenix could be considered an upscale version of the Pontiac Ventura, and today’s example is powered by a 231 […]
Somebody better put some miles on this car ASAP. If we don’t roll the odo digits, this car risks becoming one of those cars that gets passed around those fancy auction sites between exceedingly wealthy hipsters who store them in their garage and talk about when they first got into Apple stock. This car needs […]
Unfortunately, I think that the best place to find cheaps cars has changed in the past few decades and I might need to get with the times. Gone are the advertisements in Autotrader print magazines and those who migrated to craigslist abandoned it when craigslist became a haven for scammers. A few years ago Craig implemented a simple $5 listing fee that is shockingly more than the typical kook (selling a classic for less than the prevailing rate) wants to pay and now some of the best deals have migrated to the faceyface.

This next car is a California black plate equipped behemoth from another era. It has a 400 cubic inch V8 mated to a 3-speed auto and features a sickly shade of green on the out and in — and I love it. Is it a coupe? Or the pillarless hardtop?…No… wagon… nope…just a simple 4-door sedan, but that shouldn’t stop you front driving this old Poncho.

tiac 6000 was a mid-sized mid-market front-drive offering from GM’s “sporty” Pontiac brand that shared its plebian underpinnings with GM’s other A-body machines like the Buick Century, Chevy Celebrity, and Olds Cutlass Ciera. The 6000 sold relatively well and did the job of shuttling around the kids, but it wasn’t in the least bit sporty (although there was a Special Touring Edition STE that added a high output option to the V6 pushing the original 112 horsepower up to 135. Anyway, the builder of this next car shoved a small block Chevy up front and the result is going to be some wicked front-wheel-peelage.

I hate to feature another Ponterrari Fi3r08 and make you guys think that I like these things, but this next one is too good looking to pass up. It is still a Fiero, but the wheels and the ride height and other things seem very properly Ferrari and the color just about perfect. So if you don’t mind a car that looks like an 80s Ferrari but drives like an 80s Pontiac…this is it. Find this 1986 Pontiac Fiero Kit Car offered for $15,000 in Saint Cloud, FL via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
This next car comes as a tip from JB1025 who writes: Look’s pretty dang good clean 428 Poncho Land Cruiser nice color combo. I have to agree with JB’s sentiments and the reason this 428 V8 equipped beast is cheap is because it has 4-doors, but that makes it very family friendly and ready to be your semi-daily driver. Find this 1969 Pontiac Bonneville 4-Door offered for $6000 in Edmonds, WA via craigslist.
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.
