Hello From the 88 Database Guy. I want to thank everyone who's sent me data and posted info here. The database is still ongoing, and as Raydar said it is an attempt to document many aspects of the 88 production run. I will never get them all, but I decided long ago that gathering as much data as possible was a worthy pursuit. Right now I've got partial or complete info on a little over 6000 cars. I saw the two cars css posted on Row52 and he's absolutely right, one of these two cars was new and one was from a long time ago and I sure hated to change that car's entry to "dead". I gather info from the online auctions, sales sites including eBay, craigslist, kijiji, bringatrailer, and now even Facebook. If you've seen a car there chances are high that i've seen it too. Not to say I don't appreciate people posting the info on this thread, but for new people who are sending me info I would prefer you send me the info at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can keep the records organized better. It's gotten to the point that with 6000+ cars, and multiple entries for many of them, I've got what I believe are solid statistics on the production run and I'll post some of those statistics soon.
A word about the value of all this. I have no illusions that whatever data I ultimately collect will be of much use to anyone. I simply intend to collect what I can with the time and resources I have available, because I think someone should be doing it. In talking to Robert Casey, the author of the great book "ALL 1984-1988 Pontiac Fiero Colors Codes & Quantities", we know that at one time all this production information was available. In fact, it may STILL exist but it's not known who has it or that it ever will be made public. What is not known by anyone is how many are gone already, and perhaps that's one of the most important things in this whole effort, to document them as they fade away. Not that I think the Fiero will ever become a super high dollar collectable car, even for the most rare ones, but documenting the survivors and destroyed cars is something I will continue to pursue.
If you would like to add your car, please send me the VIN, factory colors and options (sunroof, hardtop, 5spd, auto, wheel color, leather or lumbar seat, ttop!) to my email above and I'll add your car or update the entry for the car if I've already got it. I don't need your name or info in the database, I like to add it when it's available but if you don't want that info there I absolutely will not put it in there. This is a car database and not a owner database.
Thanks to Cliff for the wonderful forum and to everyone who's contributed over the years. With the new picture uploading feature (Awesome Cliff!) I will upload what may be one of the coolest things to come from collecting the car info so far. See below for a copy of the production color run info for the 1988 cars.
