May have to pull the engine from my 88 and can't leave it at work on the lift. Will an 85 subframe bolt in so I can roll it back out the door?

I would not see why not. If you just need it to move it around it should not be an issue. But im no expert on that matter.

It will... HOWEVER, the McPhearson struts won't mount up properly to the top of the shock towers in the trunk... not sure how that will affect it, but the four subframe bolts will match up.

Not for a Fiero, but using 20' of 2x12 and eight heavy duty casters from Home Depot I made a totally ghetto but totally functional car dolly for moving around cars without suspension. Total cost was around $80. It could have been cheaper, but I used the beefiest casters Home Depot had since sometimes I end up moving cars in excess of 3000lbs. For a mostly stripped Fiero, much cheaper casters could probably be used.
