1986 Pontiac Fiero Se on 2040-cars
Spring Arbor, Michigan, United States
|Selling my 1986 Fiero. I have owned it for about two years, and I have driven it during the spring and summer for most of that time. The car is in pretty good shape, the under body has little to no rust on it. I have not had it on salty roads since I owned it, I cannot vouch for previous owners. I bought this car from a guy in Ohio, and there was some issue with the mileage, where a previous owner did not write it down right on the title when transferring and then it got all screwed up. So honestly I am not entirely sure if the mileage is truly low or not. However the quality and shape of the car leads me to believe that the mileage could be relatively accurate. Also I had intended to do an engine swap so I really did not care if the mileage was accurate, I just wanted a good example of a Fiero fastback to drop a large engine into.
The car is completely stock from when I bought it, still has the Ironduke that it had when I bought it. I had to replace the manifold cover and do some other repairs when I bought the car because it had the classic leaking oil issue that was a major problem with the early Fiero's. The car features an aftermarket CD player. Other than that, it is pretty stock, original speakers, has the headrest speakers as well. The electric mirrors and windows still work. I was having some issues with the mirrors with the center panel piece but replacing it would not be a huge process. The interior is pretty clean, I bought seat covers to give the interior a bit of an updated look, the original seats are actually in really good shape with no holes or tears. The dash has some bowing and a few cracks, mainly from sun exposure over the years. At present the sunroof leaks, but that is because of the very old seal, I replaced the bolts and seal pieces around the screws but I never got around to buying a new seal for the whole thing. The head liner is beginning to come apart as well. The windows have lite scratch marks due to the awful dew wipes, but that can be cleaned up as well.
The car will need new tires at some point and probably brake work some time in the near future. The headlight motor or motors will need to be replaced. In regards to the heat and A/C, I think the real issue with the heat is a bad blower motor, simple as that. The A/C though has a cracked pipe in the line that you can see in the engine bay, I enjoy driving with the windows down so it never really bothered me. The gas gauge does not work, it bobs around a bit. I just kept track of mileage and refilled that way, never had any problems. That can certainly be fixed but is a rather involved process I was not willing to pay for. There really is not anything majorly wrong with the engine, it burns a little oil, which is possibly due to bad seals in the engine, but shy of replacing all of them which I am not capable of doing or willing to pay for at this time, or swapping the engine, again cannot afford to do, its really just whatever. I did start the car a couple days ago and she started like a champ even after all this cold. The car has been in the garage since December, and was not outside for the really cold days. I guess thats really all I have to say about this car, feel free to contact me with any questions. I really need to sell this car, I will be moving in a few months, and I do not want to take it with me.

If you're an automotive engineer being tormented by an immortal being made of fire, then wouldn't you think it best to have a custom coupe called the FireBreather for your getaway car? That's the FireBreather in the image above, adorned by the red wings that once fronted the Pontiac Firebird, running away from a black cloud of evil in a trailer for the movie Jinn.

The Jinn is eternal evil, always waiting for the chance to make things float across rooms before going on homicidal urban rampages. The FireBreather is a Gen-V Chevrolet Camaro - from the V6 to the ZL1 - that's been through Classic Design Concepts' extensive list of exterior and interior modifications, including entirely new front and rear fascias and side skirts, sway bars and springs, Pirelli P Zeroes and an available Edelbrock supercharger.
The movie - FireBreathing chase scenes and all - was shot in Monroe, Michigan. You can watch the trailer below, but since the FireBreather only get a couple of seconds on screen, you can find out more about it on Street Legal TV and its official site.
When an old car or truck offers its dying breath in your driveway and you just don't have the financial or mechanical wherewithal to resuscitate it yet again, you traditionally have to go to the trouble of calling a flatbed or a tow truck to come haul it away. That usually helps to put a few bucks in your wallet and helps recycle some of the vehicle's parts, but the transaction doesn't seem as final or perversely satisfying as the dispatch service that this New Way Cobra Magnum garbage truck offers.

Okay, okay, so this refuse hauler isn't actually designed for this sort of thing, but it's oddly comforting to know that a sanitation truck can compact a hapless Pontiac Grand Am into oblivion. Next time, we won't feel so guilty about slipping that rusty charcoal grille onto the curb next to the cans on garbage day. Watch the carnage by scrolling below.
Say what you will about The Monkees, but the guys in the band had great taste in automobiles. Take the Monkeemobile, for example. Built off a 1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible, the custom featured genuinely interesting bodywork and some wild engine bolt-ons. If you're a fan of 1960s pop and yearn to relive the genre's glory days, eBay Motors may have what you need. A recreation of the 1967 Monkeemobile has showed up for auction. This particular replica was built by Dakota County Customs using an four-speed GTO, just like the original.
Built for the band's 45th anniversary and the final Monkees tour last year, this Monkeemobile is faithful down to every last detail. Unfortunately, the trumpet exhaust poking out of the front fender wells and the massive gold-flake blower are for show only. Seems fitting.
If you like what you see, this machine is up for bid in Richfield, Minnesota with two days left on the auctions. So far, bidding as whipped up to $60,000 with the reserve not met. Head over to eBay Motors to have a look.
