Marblehead, Massachusetts, United States

Pontiac Vibe/Toyota Matrix 2003, GT model (Same as Toyota XRS).   Yamaha-manufactured 1.8 liter engine makes 180 hp @8200 rpm with six-speed transmitssion - car will reallly move!  Car has most available accessories for year, including sun roof, roof rack, power windows, locks (with remote) and mirrors, side curtain airbags, cd changer, AC, anti-locki brakes, etc. 


131k miles, excellent overall condition for age. This car has been rock-solid, bulletproof trouble free for me during 75000 miles and five years.  Oil changes, tires, battery and brake pads - that's it.  It is amazing what it can carry with the fold-flat passenger front seat.  Unlike the newer models the rear window opens separately from the hatch for even longer stuff. 


There are a few things to mention:  the car is ten years old.  It has a minor ding on the driver's door under the GT symbol (photo) and the rear bumper cover has been bumped in the right corner so the back-up light now points up.  (Good for spotting low-flying planes while backing up)  It might be possible to pop it out.  There is a stain on the rear passenger side seat (photo). The plastic splash shield in front of the left front tire is split.  Other than that, the car is pretty clean and mechanically excellent.  Tires probably average about 40 % and the aluminum wheels are in average condition for age.


This is a no-reserve auction - I won't waste your time with hidden "reserves" or unrealistic buy it now prices.  You tell me what it's worth!  The car is for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction if it sells locally.  $500 deposit withing24 hours, balance in seven days.  I might be able to cooperate in delivery from Boston area under mutuallly negotiated terms.

How to turn a Pontiac Fiero into a trackday car

Fri, 17 Oct 2014

Imagine hitting the track in a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive sports coupe that's affordable and has pretty good parts availability. It might sound like a pipe dream, but it's actually quite possible, if you're willing to think a little outside the box. The Pontiac Fiero is out there just waiting for a little work to turn it into a competent racing machine.
Think about it for a second. Of course, we would all like to be snaking through the curves in something exotic, but what happens when you crash or something breaks? The bills are going to mount up quickly. However, if you ball up a Fiero at the track, as long as you're not hurt, then it's not a huge tragedy.
That's basically the story of Steven Snyder in a new video from Drive starring Matt Farah. Snyder wanted to go to the track cheaply and ended up with an awesome little Fiero with a huge wing and a claimed 220 horsepower at the wheels thanks to a V6 from a Chevrolet Lumina. Check out the video to see how this pint-size Pontiac performs.
