This immaculate Fiero GT was sold to the original owner in August 1988 in Reading, PA. Then it was sold in May, 1990 to the gentleman I purchased it from, also from Reading, PA.

The car sat in a barn in Reading from 1991 until I purchased it in April, 2013. The second owner told me had had purchased it for his son who was in the USAF at the time. The son drove it for a year then he was transfer overseas at which time the car was parked in the barn. It had 17,862 miles on it (see picture) when I removed it from the barn in Reading, PA. Current mileage is 31,751 (see picture) but will increase as I continue to enjoy driving.
