I wonder if the $7975 price is what he will pay someone to get rid of it for him.

+1! I'd rather deal with IMS than drive around in that hideous thing.

This thing is a prime example of someone having more money than brains or good taste.

No such thing as a perfectly good Fiero. I used to have Fieros, just the thought of having anything to do with one makes me want to vomit! They were awful cars, no perfomance, poor quality, and hard to work on. GM had some good ideas, but the execution of those ideas was emasculated by the '80's bean counters.

I just saw that Fiero on Hartford Craigslist. Waste of a good Boxster front bumper, fenders, hood and headlights!

Well i never owned one but it seems they kinda figured things out on them in the last year of production (1988 I think?) and in GM's wisdom is when they pulled the plug.
Sometimes a good idea or concept needs some development time but American manufacturers don't have patience for that like our European and Japanese friends do.

Having owned two X 1/9's in the late 70's, I was excited when I heard the news of the Fiero. That was one hot selling car when it first came out! I rented a 2M4 in 1984 while in Seattle for business. It was ok, not a lot of power but coming from Fiat's that wasn't a big deal to me.

Thing was, the execution on the X was so much more efficient. The X had two usable trunks (sound familiar?), even with the top stowed in the front trunk. Spare tire behind passenger seat built into the firewall. Very cool! The biggest downside to the X's was corrosion and being under powered.

In all honesty, the first drives of the best sports cars I've every owned, an NA Miata and my Boxster S were that they reminded me of the 'go cart' feeling of the old X 1/9.

Never got that feeling with my first drive of the Fiero.

This could have been my story! I owned a 1978 X1/9 from '79 till '85 and never got that go kart feeling again till I bought my Boxster In 2014. And yes, corrosion and lack of power were its bugaboos, along with suspect electrical items.
