Default Old 1997 40Th Anniversery SSEI owner New to site

Just found this site even though I have owned my car for 5 year. I plan to sell it soon But plan on getting a new SSEI to replace it.
I am involved with Fiero'* and presently Club Pres. Of The Cleveland Fiero and have around 80 members locally. I am a Die hard Pontiac fan as are many of my Friends and have driven or ridden in just about every Great Pontiac made over the years.
The SSEI is the wifes every day car, my Fiero is for shows only with only 40,000 miles and I am the original owner. My daily ride is a GMC Sonoma Ext cab with a ZQ8 suspension powered by the 185 HP 4.3. Believe it or not the GMC is great for Autocross.
This looks to be a great site and just in 2 day I have learned much on the car I have and others. My shock was that only 637 40th SSEI were made. I haver seen some around but not many.

Sols looking for nearly that car. I'd say keep onto it. Your Fiero is nice , and your bonnie will be worth A LOT in 10-20 years.

If not, sell it to SOL plz.

WELCOME! I used own a few Fieros myself. Had an 84, 86 SE V6, and an 88 GT 5-speed that I used for the auto-x. Sounds like you have some nice rides.

Thank you for the welcome! I think I will be able to learn a lot and hope I might be able to contribute some.

I am in no hurry to sell the car. It has 80,000. We just trade or upgrade every 5-6 years on cars We were looking to upgrade to a 2001-2003 Black or silver SSEI. This has to be a everyday car that she has to drive to work year round. The only things wrong with the one I have is the gas gauge not working all the time and the lower lumbar on the drivers seat leaks down., otherwise it has been a great car.

I have not gone and looked at more than 2 newer SSEI'* so far. I will have to even set a price on the one I have yet. Anyone got an ballpark Idea what it might be worth? New brakes and new Eagle GT HR'* are on it. The interior is in great as well as the body. Has everything but the electric suspension. Has been well maintained.

I will sell it between now and summer, just depends on when I find another car that we want. If I had someplace to keep it I would put it back and save it. I do like this car but you can keep everything.

I will post pictures of the Bonneiville and the Fiero when the wife get home over the weekend. She is out of town now and I don't have any digital pictures of the car just regular photos.

the Fiero is the show car of the family so it gets the 3rd bay in the garage. It is a 2M6 SE 1985, with t tops, Herb Adams suspension, Peguses Ground FX, DGP Indy Scoope. Leather Interior, 1989 Prototype nose Badge one of only 13 I know of and I have 9 of them and 16" wheels with Center caps I made from 1979 Bonneville hub caps. I have won local and national shows with it and have had a lot of fun with the car. I even wax the floor pan. I will post these when I get the other photos later.

I will post try to post pictures later of both.

Thanks again for the great welcome I plan to be around here for a good while.
