That's a great car! The disappearing headlights were a '70s thing- it's not the Fiero's fault- all cars with disappearing headlights have problems with them- the electrical circuit for retracting the headlights is different than the raising circuit- they both have to be working- you can raise and lower the headlights manually- there is a little dial under the hood- you should be able to sell your car because it is a cool classic, unrecognized as such, but still ultimately cool- and I bet you look cool in it- even today, they don't build a sports car that looks as good and gets the fantastic mileage as that '84 Fiero- and no door dings! My advice- don't just give it away, that car is worth easy 2 grand and will be worth more as time goes on and people get over their prejudices-
