For those who have never seen a CARFAX Report, this is a report on a car I am buying. I bought the unlimited report deal while I looked for a car. It is good for 30 days.
This is an example of a CLEAN report.
I don't buy cars that have ANY problems (Including too many owners......)

It's not two reports.
Its just one report.
Like most Forums you can't do a cut and paste and expect the formatting to hold together.
It wouldn't all fit in one post here.


The "1987 GT coupe" is not part of the report.
It is an "ad" for a similar car. The fact that you can't have a GT that is a coupe is a problem with the spastic owner of the 87, not Carfax.

MANY Fiero owners (maybe most) are completely clueless about what they have.
The average age of Fiero owners today must be about 14.:rolleyes:

But it looks like I can get this coupe by tomorrow.
It is a coupe with factory T-tops. 1 of 91 ever made.
I don't need a V6 and my acne won't break out if I don't do an engine swap. :D

Good catch, tho. Most wouldn't know........

Fiero

Supposedly lots you can do with a Fiero if you want to. because of the Modular body panels there used to be lots of aftermarket bolt on's that you could make the Fiero look like a completely different car. They were a hot commodity a couple of years back. My sister and brother in law still have an 86 V6 gold one in their garage. Fun car to drive. Good luck with your new find Homer.

I always thought the Fiero was a cool little car. It wouldn't be my first choice in a 'fun' car. Pontiac finally started getting it right in 87 and then dropped the car shortly after.
