As much as I love what whodeanie does, your car is far to nice a specimen to be modified! Some cars should be left completely stock, and yours is one of them!

I can appreciate your point of view but to me, a car is a blank piece of paper waiting to be created to suit the owners personal tastes.

PS. the engine will be for sale to help off set the cost of the build. the first 700 gets it. pick up only

So obviously you were the winner on eBay, but the auction says the reserve was not met at $10,100. Can you share what you paid for it? I think this is a clear example of what our cars are truly worth in today's market seeing as it is a clean, low mile 88 GT. There are so many "sellers" out there that think these cars are worth way too much....I know, I know, they are worth what someone will pay. The truth is that most of us cannot afford to over spend just to have a good, clean example of a fiero. The majority of us badly desire these cars, but can only afford their true value, not inflatted seller desired money. I don't think there are too many of us who want trailer queens here on the forum. We want to use and enjoy these special cars...keep them alive as long as we can.

Anywho...I'll get off my soap box.

Great buy on your part my friend. I wish I could've afforded it! Hate to see it get modded, but she's yours and you should enjoy her as you see fit!

BTW, I'd love the engine if the deal falls through!

If you could fix the front offset, these would be really nice! I am going widebody and want to keep the somewhat period correct look. I really lovethe pro-touring look as well.

That name sounds familiar. I talked with a guy on an SVX forum a couple years ago by that name who had also been a Fiero nut and was from FL. Was that you?

Nice car by the way, do you still have the 87 GT with the TDC?

4 weeks? Hate to say it but I am going to bet it is going to be a little longer than 4 weeks....4 weeks would be cutting it close going SC....Going turbo well that just adds more time...Will be a very nice car with a cleanly installed 3800....
