I got the second car on my list. This is my third Fiero now.....yep, I've lost it, but its fun.

It is in outstanding condition....inside and out. Runs very strong and has the recall done on it also.

Thanks everyone. This is a good one, I have the manuals, books, sun roof cover, wind deflector and everything up front. Two sets of original keys and even the old Fiero key ring.

And original paint !!!!

I wanted to do things like LED lights and some other stuff.

Did you buy the car as an investment... to be squirreled away? Or did you buy this car to enjoy it as you see fit?

Looks great by the way... but at least lower the rear end a bit.

LOL!!!!

All kidding aside, nice car! I was just wondering why the back end seemed to be sitting high.

I've always liked the blue and the gold GT's. I guess being different is in my blood.

As far as what you should do with it? Well, it's your car, you paid for it and it's your money. Do whatever floats yer boat.

As for me, I'd keep it original. However, if you wanted to do minor changes like the LED's, all you need to do is save anything you take off and keep it for the car.

Hey congrats! That blue looks awesome. I might have to rethink about the paint on my car... I wanted to get yellow with a
black ground effect, but blue with a black ground effect would look amazing.

How many miles are on the car?

I would get LED lights just cause it is a nice upgrade.

WTH happened to my post?! It disappeared.

Anyway... I think I may know this car. Or at least one of its previous owners. One of the guys in our club had a low mile blue 87 GT. He sold it to (I think) someone in Tennessee. Perhaps.

Regardless... congrats on your purchase! It's a beautiful car.

I was going by the top of the tire vs. wheel opening. In the photo there seems to be more space between the top of the tire and the quarter panel.

This one came from a guy who's father had it and passed away. It sat in his mom's garage since 2002 and was driven then only weekly to keep it running.
I'm the third owner. First owner = his father, then him, now me.

I think I know the one you are talking about. I stopped and looked at it one day a few months back.

Yes

It may be the way it was parked, may be new springs, may just be the photo.

Or it just may be me.

It for sure needs tires, those are from 1991 or 1992, he could not remember.
So, any idea what brand to get? Something that performs well all year.

Will 225 60 15's work for the back? Instead of 215's

Anyone know?

Best - Michelin

Worst - Toyo

Common - B.F.G. or Cooper

But there are many good brands out there today. Yokohama, Falken, Bridgestone, Hankook, Goodyear, etc.

215/60/15's up front and 225 or even 235/60/15's will work on the rear. I'm running 215 and 225 front and rear of my 87. Kuhmo brand and they've seen a lot of hard driving and still have more than half the tread. They're directional tires, so they'd need to be dismounted to rotate side to side.

I think I know the one Raydar is referring to and I think it may have been an automatic. The club owner sold it to a man up around Dalton, Ga., I think. Claimed the car had belonged to a preacher according to his sales ads. The car was in at least the 3rd owner's hands at that time, so anyone after that would be at least the 4th. I don't think they're the same cars. It also had LED tail lights and some of the instrument lights were LED.

JJ's. Was that an automatic?
Regardless, it is clear to me that this is a different car. Just as nice, however.

You might consider keeping it stock and enjoying it for a while & think about it. Once you make it "non-stock" it can't really be re-originalized; unless the changes you make are bolt-on swaps that can be replaced with the stuff you take off...

I think that kinda might be a gross oversimplification. A G-Force KD is a much better tire than an MXV4... You can't just choose tires based on brand - all the major manufacturers have some genuinely good tires and some genuinely bad ones.

Not positive, but I think it was. I found pictures of the outside, but I don't have anything inside. And yes, both are prime examples of beautiful blue 87GT's.

It's your car so you should enjoy it as you see fit. If that is a stock, original blue 1987, you should do some research on what you have before you start changing things. Learn about what you have, first, then decide what you're going to do with it.
