Just got back from the Pick N Pull on Stockton Ave in Elk Grove, CA (Sacramento). Saw they had an '88 new on the lot for a couple of weeks. The gal on the phone couldn't tell me if it was a GT or not. I made the drive anyway hoping to find a few nice items I could use or just to rescue or save for barter. Turned out to be a wrecked white 4 cylinder car but I still had hopes to find some decent seats or interior pieces.

It was a wasted trip. The car had already been picked over and trashed. No power options or radio. Drivers seat missing, pass seat ripped up. Dash cracked, most trim missing or broken, headliner trashed, engine soaked in dirty oil. I couldn't even find a pair of sun visors to send off for recovering.

The front and rear glass was dirty but looked intact with no cracks. Is there demand for glass out there or is it still readily available?

I posted picks below for anyone interested. The pics don't do it justice. It actually looks worse in person. Could be I don't have an eye for what might be useful from what was left.

VIN # 1G2PE11R2JP218201

Several members have recently posted about trying to find the chin spoiler for the '87/88 coupe/formula. I had a hard time finding the large, black-plastic piece that connects the bottom of the fascia to the front end and funnels air to the radiator. Also, check the metal stiffener to which the chin spoiler attaches. Mine is rusty so I'll probably be looking for one in a few weeks.

Both fascias look like they're in good shape. I recently paid $35 a piece for front and back fascias and neither was in as good a shape as these appear to be.

The marker lights and the smooth molding are usually sought after.

Edit: Of course, someone is always interested in the 88 suspension parts and cradle.

Just for the record: That's a WO2 option Fiero...Sport appearance package only on 88 dukes. Most of them seem to be in California. It has the wing and body color rockers..side and rear.

It pays to get the front hubs if they turn smoothly. Even better if they are the factory originals.
Thanks for all the pics. I had actually planned on going down there myself. Not surprised at the condition. Fiero's tend to be abused animals. . Kit

The headlight motors, headlight control module, and front wiring harness are always in demand by owners of pre 87-88 Fieros who wish to do the swap to the 2nd generation system.
