Just a quick question here from a guy new to the world of all things Fiero. I got passed by one about a year ago and I couldn't get enough of it. I figured out what it was and realized that they're actually pretty decently rare. I've finally come to the point where I'm going to start seriously looking. I love the fastback (notchback doesn't even compare IMO) and I've been wondering, are there any major differences between the '87 and '88? as a consumer I would love to get the last year they were produced but the '87's are just a lot easier to find. any information would be great. should I spend the little bit extra for an '88 or can I make the 87 just as good if not better with the money I'll save? thanks in advance.

If u can always get the 88. GM spent 33 million completely redoing the brakes and suspension for 1988. The 88s handle and stop better. The 87 used a chevette front end and a Citation x car front end in the back working backwards

The working backwards part is incorrect......

Wow then, if I get one I'll have 5 backup gears and 1 forward, well that should make gear selection a lot easier! Sorry, just had too.

Just my opinion - it depends on where you're gonna be driving it. Here in hell-A ("LA") the roads are some of the worst in the country. i had an 88 and got rid of it (partly) because of the rough ride. You should also consider that the suspension parts for the 88 are gonna cost you a LOT more money to replace. Both cars have the upgraded headlights, larger gas tank and 5-speed available. My 87 is a whole lot easier for me to live with .

I guess when you think about it, only a relative handful of 88's were produced and they are the only cars with the suspension components, so parts prices will only get higher and higher.
