Hi all,

I have been in several different forums before and they all have their little nuances that one needs to learn. So while I am getting used to this one, if I screw up, let me know and I will correct it quickly. I will get my signature, etc. set up soon.

I just finished getting a 1962 CJ-5 Jeep on the road, and then I had a great opportunity to buy a 1988 Fiero GT from my friend who has rebuilt several different types of cars. I, too, am quite adept at vehicles, but have never worked on a mid-engine machine. The one I bought is pretty muchly standard fare. Everything on it is original, except the sound system.

I haven't gotten into it yet -- it doesn't need anything at the moment as everything seems to be working fine -- but I need to explore. I am sure I will be back in here like I was with the Jeep forum, and by the time I get done knowing this thing, I will be contributing. If there is anything I need to know about the 1988 GT, right up front, please let me know, ok? Thanks...

Welcome, I've been on a lot of forums too.

The topic of argument here is fastback or notchback, it's silly really but people will insult the other incessantly on here it seems

Anyway, welcome, I have an 88 GT as well but it has a LS v8 conversion


Hope you have thick skin lol

Welcome to our obsession!
If you don't get the "obsession" thing, stick around. You will.

The forum is searchable, but the search function leaves a little to be desired.
Meanwhile, if you can't find what you want, feel free to ask.

Congrats on finding an 88 GT that doesn't need anything.

Pics are always welcome. (If you run a Windoze PC, check on the button at the bottom of each page. It's called Pennock's Image Poster. It's a basic automated FTP client. Very easy to use if you're even a little bit computer literate.)

Thanks for the welcomes. I appreciate it. I am not thin-skinned. The Jeep forum got pretty rough at times. I can dish it out as well as the next guy, but that will not be my intent. It will be to learn all I can about the Fiero. The only experience I have had is I raced one in my 280 Z, but I had a different cam and split headers on it, as well as I had "tweaked" the Bosch fuel injection for performance, so it wasn't a fair race. I have already come to understand from what I have read in here, that there are mods that can be done to the Fiero 2.8 engine, or engine swaps to make it even quicker. I might be pursuing this option as I go. I once put a 280 Z engine in a BMW 530i. Made it what it should have been in the first place. You all have a good evening, and thanks. I will be in here as needed...

Welcome, and there are some very experienced people on the forum that are more than happy to help you out as Raydar says.
Good choice on getting an '88!

Of all the years I have owned, my '88's have been and are the best.

Having done what you have already done mechanically, there is nothing mysterious about a Fiero other than why more people don't have one, love them, and drive one?
Gas, air, spark, go!
