Paulv has one for sale: http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum4/HTML/067599.html
I was actually considering it since I DO have a lot of cassette tapes...

Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture, his mental state but … after a shooting, the problem is the gun?

I put an '88 Buick cassette radio in my Fiero about three years ago and it looks good and sounds good as well. I recommend changing the drive belt in the cassette deck as well as getting some contact spray and clean volume and tone controls.

My radio came from the Colorado Springs Upull Upay and cost me $10-$15. They are good radios and I highly recommend them.

Old Lar's link is a very good place to get a radio. The major problem with the later radios is the volume control. It often won't increase or decrease volume when you turn the knob, then suddenly it over-reacts. Replacement radios have been thoroughly serviced and the volume-tuning board has been replaced if needed. You can also get the plug and play harness with antenna coax reducer at the same time.

The radio style that donut eater has was available on up past 2000.

Ok, I apologize, it's still a CD player... BUT... it's the SAME style as the upper-end radios found in the 1987-1988 Pontiac Fieros.

This radio (in the picture below) came from a 1991 Pontiac Bonneville. The button style, led coloring, everything, is identical to the high-end cassette player with EQ for the Fiero. It uses a 21-pin connector, but you can easily buy an adaptor for it as I have:

Another option is if you want to keep the EXACT model radio that's in your car, you can always get an identical replacement one off eBay that has been modified with the AUX jack.

What he said x3

I have a 90s cassette in my firebird dash and I've bought three of these cassette radios so far and they all have or developed the volume issue. Also the belts are probably bad if they haven't been replaced. I highly recommend buying the refurbished ones versus the random ones off eBay. I tried to save money and ended up wasting money on eBay.

I have one of the Pontiac am-fm /cd radios in my 88 GT and the volume control developed the control issue Replacement radios has a kit for the fix, ($20 I think) but I just sent the radio in and it was fixed by someone who knew what they were doing Maybe $40 cost.
