crazy looking and sounding kit then. What gives it away?

The wheels look a bit too 'sunk' and small.
The rear window doesn't wrap around the corners like a real one (unless I'm not looking at the right year)

could be a fiero kit.

For me I noticed the exhaust and rear window.

Yeah, I'm pretty certain this is a kit. While the details did vary from year to year, there were never individual rear quarter window panels like the one you saw. Those are covers to cover up the Fiero GT fastback side (rear) windows.

Additionally, all Dinos had small front quarter windows - this one does not.

The slope and non-curvyness of the front windshield gave it away for me, then there's other little oddities like mentioned above.

Yeah, well, you're just going to have to do better next time. ;)

I'll try. I usually deliver quite well with my spotted threads. But since I'm by no means an expert on old exotics I 100% thought this was the real deal.

Will do better from now on lol.

:D ;)

I spotted this one last year at a coop. Made the exact same mistake. You can count on beyond to correct ya.

which is fine by me. Now next time i won't be tricked lol.

...and now it is for sale. Seems like it is sporting a supercharged 3800...


11-10-2011, 02:20 PM
$20,000 :eek:

I knew it!!!! but still...:hitit: although..20 G's is way steep. Guy should be asking around 10 - 12 K I think

11-10-2011, 04:29 PM
If the car simply had a 3800 swap, it would be worth anywhere from 8-10g. But add in the Dino kit and I'd say it is worth a lot more. If the interior is redone as well, I don't think 20k is *completely* out of line...
