Yep, got the rear brake calipers, round trim, radio suround. Going back for some rear suspension parts I couldn't get off at the time. Lots of rusted bolts. Need to bring some "blaster" and some BIG tools.
Good old 10334. I first saw it for sale in 2001 up in Clifton Park NY. I next saw it for sale in 2003 in Livingston NY. Then it was for sale in 2006 in Hudson NY. In all that time it only went from 100,000 miles to 109910 miles. Hard luck car for sure, and no wonder those bolts are rusty. If you do go back, please check for the ALDL connector sticker to see if the date code is on there. We've got the ALDL date from 10378, it would really be nice to get this car's date too.
I didnt know there was anyone collecting this. Here's mine if u need it, a yellow formula. Still very alive, exported to the Netherlands in 1991. VIN 1g2pe1191jp223678 101,000 miles. Light grey interior. 2.8 engine, automatic. Sunroof. AC. Tilt. Casette. the original rims are 15" black. Let me know if u need more information about it.
I didn't add mine when I had it, doh! Was car # 2,000 I believe.. Or 2,200.. Red coupe. Whichever it was, it was odd having a round number on the VIN. Went from NH to MA to UT I think. Don't know if I have the VIN around anymore. The owner is a member here though, so maybe he's provided the info...
pswayne, no sweat, I grabbed your car's info when you posted it's info awhile back! Plus, one of these days, I'll make a meeting of the GA Fieros and I'll be looking over your car then as well!
qwik, thanks! Hope the little sticker is legible...
Edwin, this is a new car to the database, and you gave me all the info for it! Thanks alot! As you'd imagine, I'm pretty happy to get the info on a car that, except for Cliff's wonderful Forum, I'd probably never be able to get!
I guess it's been awhile since I posted a request, so he's the basic explanation of what I'm doing.
For about 10 years now, I've been trying to collect as much info on the 88 production run as possible, with the hope that someday we would have info on enough cars to make reasonably sound predictions as to production options. This info may exist somewhere or it may not, but either way, I think there is value to documenting info when it's available for posterity. Someday it may all be important, but even if it isn't (say, because the actual production build sheets for each car were saved somewhere), at least we're building a database on cars that have been scrapped or parted out. Along the way, I've meet many wonderful people who have helped me out tremendously, and to one and all, I offer my Heart Felt Thanks!
For those who might have an 88, know someone who does, or might see one in a junkyard, I'd appreciate any help you can give me in documenting the cars. Basically, I collect info on factory color options (Exterior, Interior, and Rims (GTs and Formulas (I know, Formulas should all have black rims from the factory, but do they?)), the roof type and the tranny type. Any other info is also welcome, but even if all you have is a vin number and the fact that the car is intact, that's a good starting point for the future. Any info is better than having a blank record for a car. For those that might have the center console removed, there is a sticker on the ALDL connector (unless the glue has let loose!) which has a date code and shift number on it. I also collect this info when possible, but do not believe it's tied to car production weeks anymore. Still, having the info is better than not, and maybe someday we'll be able to use it to our advantage.
People have offered to help with a website, and I do appreciate it, but intend to get one up soon. I have made that promise before, but now it's definately time to do it. Stand by on that one.
Thanks to all for reading this and your continued help.

My 88 was totaled, but here is the info on it. Vin: 1G2PE11R5JP202915 2.5 Auto cruise A/C. power nothing. (no sunroof, trunk light, power deck release, rear defroster, etc... ) Cassette silver Al wheels Red exterior Grey interior first registered in 02/88 Bought in 94, destroyed in 98. But, parts of it live on in my current 85.

I've had my 88 for ten years and have not added it! I keep meaning to, but never have my vin on hand; by the time I hit my computer after working.. moving is out of the question. lol How about a lil reminder?
There is a white 88 GT with beechwood interior and gold wheels I see every now and again in Memphis. Next time I see it I'll get the VIN and whatever else I can from the owner. It's always parked in the same spot on nice days so it shouldn't be too hard. I believe he also has a Viper, Porsche or 2, and an Ultima GTR, but that is for another day.
I have an 88 GT I bought January of '09-third owner. 120,000 miles Vin. 1G2PG1190JP201231 Exterior: Brite Red Interior: gray Roof: sunroof Transmission: automatic Options: pw, pdl, pm, air, spoiler,visor mirror, cruise, wheel locks, 1SA-option group. Some of the above may be standard on a GT, but are listed on the parts I.D. fender tag. Wheels": black lace
Original red and original every thing Iron Duke 4 Cylinder 5 Speed Runs fantastic every day all break components replaced with Napa parts as from the box 84,000 miles Interior is very clean except for some sun bake in outer corners and is Gray No rust any where ...not even around the battery or any nuts and bolts on the bottom of the car Never hit as far as I can tell. All body panels have the GM sticker. one small dent in floor where some one put a jack improperly Could use a paint job as the sun has bleached it out Power windows..locks...am.fm radio .. tilt wheel....every thing stock Owner Dave Florida
When I hear of an 88 being crushed it makes me sad. Some 88 parts are getting difficult to find. Like the steering racks off of those cars that can be rebuilt, etc. Any Fiero being crushed is sad as alot of it can be used to rebuild other Fieros.
