Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet up with pff member scottd to give him some parts he needed.
Great guy and a very nice white 86 GT.

You did good with your purchase, very clean car!
Made mine look like a neglected orphan, but that will change with time. LOL

Here are a couple shots of the first ever Richmond Illinois Taco Bell Fiero Meet!

The more I look at these pictures, the more I think my spoiler is going to be white when I get it painted.
I like the look better. A little less boy racer and classier.










Wish I could have stayed and chatted longer.
More to come out of this meeting I hope.

A white spoiler or something else to balance it.

Your '88 doesn't look badly. Of course, I'm several states away. Keeping the engine bay clean is difficult.

Sometimes, I wonder what a goven Fiero looked like, from the factory. I mean, did the panels line up any differently, the lights set differently, the trim fit better, or was there less sag? If you fix/adjust/change these things, is the car still stock?

My first Fiero was an '85 GT that I bought new in '85. It sat very high, relative to what you would expect.
Build quality was NOT stellar. Typical GM. My driver's side window didn't even fit the weather seal correctly. The dealer service department made it worse.
The positives were that it started out with no miles, and had shiny paint, and no warping on the interior pieces or bumper covers.
(It also liked to stall with the A/C on. I found out, very recently, that it was a problem common to '85 V6 cars. The fix was a replacement ECM.)

Truth be told, I'm probably happier with the Fieros that I have bought used, and built up like I want.

Here's the '85.
