I just spotted a wrecked 88 GT T-top on an auction site. Damned if the primary damage wasn't right on the t-top section. I'm guessing this is too far gone to be straightened, and I'm also guessing the T-tops are a complete loss as well. A high mileage car for sure (180K miles) but it looks (looked) pretty darn good and taillights look great.

Of course with that kind of damage you have to hope there were no injuries, or worse, but it's such a shame to lose a car like this. Looks exactly like my car if it were a T-top.

I don't suppose anyone out that way (Maryland) could save this one?

Weird damage. Did that car hit a deer? The front end is spotless! With 180K on the clock I think it's toast.

Looks like a tree fell on this car. IMO a difficult repair and with the auction fees the current salvage price is near $750. Who's kidding who? Its not worth it.

Biological damage might have been from a squirrel that rode the tree down. OH @%%$ !!! Hope it wasn't blood from an occupant.

The leather seats, wheels, rear cradle and all suspension parts and the undamaged body panels would easily return a $750 investment. I'd say that it has the original paint job, judging by the VIN tag showing in the license plate recess, so it's probably been well taken care of.

You could buy it and part it out. The potentional to make money back is there. It does look like something fell on it.

I'd give 700 for that all day, cradle (if good) and all brake/suspension stuff would be nice to have extra.

There appears to be MANY usable, undamaged parts. If I had the storage space, I would buy up cars like this all day long.

This is a CJB car. Easy fix, light pull to the roof then remove the t-roof section with a replacement one. Get some new glass and your good to go.

The last time I was at the Fiero Factory/TFF Auto in Tony, AL I saw what appeared to be a new t-top I section hanging on the wall. It might be worthwhile to call Jeremy and see if he still has it.

I found this car the other day. It looks like it is the auction car with the sticker on the hood and it has 180,000 miles on it.

The t-top frame is bent up and doesn't appear to be many usable parts from the t-top unless someone wanted to straighten the parts out.

Also the gold lace rims seem to be in good shape but I just added a post about whether they are 88 rims or not.

It looks as if the seats were removed in their entirety. The car appears to have been sprayed with fire-retardant.

Must be the same car. I'm guessing it did not sell at auction and it ended up in the junk yard. I hope you got some good stuff from it. As I recall from the pictures (dead now) it had some very usable items on it.

If you go back, please take a photo of the SPID label with all the codes, as well as the C&C sticker if it's still there. I'd like to document it before it's gone forever.

I got the drivers side t-top glass and the wing. May go back to pull the radio and take a drill to salvage some of the t-top stuff.

If I go back I will look for a C&C sticker.The engine bay has lots of good stuff if you have a 2.8.

Someone should pull the Getrag 5 speed. Those are really getting rare and expensive.
