Long story short. I found our old 1987 Fiero GT after 15 years of it being sold to a junkyard after my grandfather had too many vehicles on the property. I found it locally and in the process of trying to purchase it back

The new owner is very understanding and is willing to sell it back to me. My grandparents purchased it locally brand new at a local Pontiac dealership. The car after all of these years still had the stickers on it
My apologies if there is another thread topic conversation about this. It will let me only go back two pages on this site now

I’m going to be needing a set of OEM GT rims soon when I get the car [img]http://images.fieroforum.com/ userimages/SchrumClassicrides/4D3C275D-2E31-4364-9644-83C63D5264B3.jpeg[/img]

If you can purchase that Fiero at a low enough price it should be worth restoring but my experience has shown that spending more to buy a very good condition car is often cheaper in the long run. For instance you buy a Fiero that needs paint. That's $4000-up just for that. Whichever way you decide to go, good luck and welcome to the forum community.

That's because the default page view is set for the last 30 days. Change that setting (on the right-hand side of the screen) to "Show all topics" and you'll have 21 years worth of posts/threads to browse through.

An image posting tip - Hit the enter key twice after each image link to better format your post. And also, there can't be any spaces in the image address.

Nice! Good luck - though, as stated, if has been sitting for years, and needs an interior, paint, etc, you can likely get a car that doesn't need all that work for far less money than it will cost to restore. With that said, if there is sentimental value, by all means go for it! Welcome to the forum

I saw you're also on Facebook so be sure to seek out Mike Valentine who just bought the Fiero Factory. He's a good source for parts and is in Alabama.

Once you get the car, start making a list of all the little bits and bobs you are needing. I’ll go through my stuff and see what we can hook you up with.
