Hello - I wanted to introduce myself, I am new to this website and a new Fiero owner. I have wanted a Fiero for quite a few years and last Friday we picked up a 88 Formula. This one owner car had been treated to a pampered life in a nice garage and no Michigan winter driving. Looking forward to many summertime road trips this year!

Nice looking car! If well maintained, Black is my favorite color of vehicle. Dont think I will ever own one though. Too much work to keep up!

welcome to the chit show!

That looks beautiful! You got one hell of a car... most of use start off with something much less desirable! That being said the Formula is my favorite fiero and why I built my formula clone. Got everything but the spoiler and to be honest I like it without.

Enjoy man!

Thank you for the replies and the compliments on the car. I found this one on Craigslist over in the north Detroit suburb of Troy, MI. The guy I bought it from took delivery of the car from the dealer 12/87 and kept it until last Friday when I picked it up. There aren't many people out there these days that hang on to a car that long and it really surprised that he would sell it.

This is a low option car, base radio/no tape player, no sunroof, no power windows/locks or cruise. I received all of the paperwork in a dealer folder, factory warranty and pre-delivery checklists. I have started replacing some original items under the hood like the plugs, plug wires and cap/rotor. These parts really helped the 2.8 run much better, but I am still having some hard starting issues when the engine is warm. I assume it is nothing major, just a 22 year old car needing a little tuning TLC.

Dan, we live real close to each other.....I am half way between Portage and Vicksburg, about 1 mile north of Indian Lake. We need to meet up and talk about our toys!

Thanks again guys.

say friend i sent you a PM.
i only post this because it took me months to figure what them sounds was every time i logged in.i had no idea i had people sending me these PM's i have read about early on. so since you are new i thought i would give a heads up. you probablly already have a million of them with that shiney little gem you have. looks like he did not drive as many miles as you state. nice.

Hey there Everyone! I too have just entered the world of Fieros! Yesterday I purchased a 1986 SE w. 2.8L. Its in good shape and runs really great but deff. not the shape 1988formula's is! Its ok because im going to make it my own. Ill get some pics up later and probably get a small website to document the progress. Ive watching and reading this forum for about a week now and look forward to getting involved and hope you guys dont mind helping out a newbie with all sorts of questions and also when I need parts or upgrades which way to turn!
