Bravo sir..... Bravo!

But why do you have your "seats in storage"?

You should have joined us on the California Coast Run last October. (San Simeon to Carmel via the coast Highway).

Would have loved to see the car in person.

Great looking car, really very nice. The only thing I'd do is lowering springs or Rodney's lowering ball joints, just to close up that fender gap a bit.

Congrats!

Someday I'll get around to restoring this car to like new, but it does look great as-is (it has 171,000+ miles on it). A long, long while back I purchased JScott's beechwood interior from his then 60,000 mile 88 GT - those parts are still in storage, including the leather beechwood seats. I've replaced the original shredded leather seats in this car with fabric beechwood seats from an 88 base coupe.

Others, feel free to post a pic of your car along with a caption... I love seeing pics of all Fiero models.

Kelvin, how the heck are you? My favorite part are the leather Beechwood seats in Storage. That was over a decade ago at this point. wow!

Here's what they looked like around 2001 before I converted to the Firebird interior.

Thanks for the interior shot, that's it right there! I still have the interior parts in the boxes you shipped to me. All is well - I've been a every-once-in-a-while lurker on this site. In 2012 I picked up a Toyota Prius Plug-in, and I've been having fun commuting in it and posting at the Priuschat Forum. BUT this Pennock's Fiero Forum was my first car forum, and as we (and other long time members) can attest, the bond of Fiero friends stands the test of time.

Hi Kelvin? Still work at UPS?
I'm in Funnyvale every day this week and I usually have to drop off boxes at the Fed ex station down the road.
I hate the traffic in this area. I'd much rather be in Fremont but have no choice.

I work close to you in Sunnyvale - not at the UPS though . Hope to see you soon at one of the local get-togethers.

Thanks lorennerol. After this much time, the original 88 stance (regular height in back, even higher up front) has grown on me.

Rsvl - I purchased a shirt, but didn't make it down this past year. Songman started a wonderful tradition...

Nice ride Thunderstruck - what options are on that 88 GT? From what I can tell, it looks like it's a hardtop, though there could be a sunroof, and is there a luggage rack on the decklid - there's not too many luggage-racked GTs. My father has an 87 Maroon GT with a luggage-rack. I'll have to post a pic of that soon.

lorennerol - sharp clean ride, too! Looks to be a factory 87 Blue GT. A clean Fiero, no matter the year or model, will turn heads all day - I love it.
