Nice Fiero. Congrats! Nice seats and very clean door panels. Clean floor. The paint looks halfway decent. The body panel alignment looks good. Nice aftermarket side scoop. The steering wheel seems to be in good condition, and overall very little interior warping. The battery tray area looks good. The side markers appear to be straight to the trim, and aren't faded.

Does it run? I see it needs a battery. Did it come with floor mats?

The trunk lock and paint will be an issue. Check the trunk for rust. You can get the holes in the instrument cluster surround fixed at a vinyl repair place. There is a tan (not beechwood) center console in good condition on ebay, or you could have Russ recover this one, or you could fix the warping yourself. That whitish stuff should clean off the shift surround and other pieces. The black stuff on the driver's foot pad...I dunno. Depends on what it is. TFS sells the sail emblems. At least one wheel is missing the plastic lugnut covers, but those are easy to find.

The engine bay shouldn't be too hard to clean up. The wheels take forever to clean.

I don't know how to fix the chipping on the tail lights. Maybe Napoleon_Tanerite would try. TFS sells a trunk seal. There appears to be a lot of dirt behind the tail lights.

What is the zip tie between the thermostat housing and the dogbone?

I'm not sure why the rear wheels are blocked, unless there is a transmission issue.

That upper intake appears to be from an earlier year Fiero, because it appears to be a decal. Once you detail the car, if everything works and the car runs OK, the upper intake and the trunk lock are probably the worst things about the car.

Thanks Shark so a little about the car now . I picked it up for 1,200 Dollars ! so i was very happy with that and since i live in NY and this being a car from the south the amount of rust that i saw was just the brackets that hold the coolant tubes up. Sub frame is good and its clean. the engine that was in it was messed up bad .the guy had another one and threw it in not sure what year its out of just new it was older because of the top . He still has the other block so crossing my fingers that he has the other parts that make this car. The car does run but he didn't know where half of the stuff plugged in so it runs horrible has a choking smell of rich gas and smoke. i plan on putting the 3.8 SC in it and using the other two 2.8's for parts for my 85 . I'm very excited because i have the motor to do the swap but didn't want to do it to my 85 because its a NY car that sat for years outside before i got it and i was second owner of that .

Quite a deal, for that price! It should be a good candidate for a 3800 swap.

What was with the block behind the rear wheel? How long has it been sitting?

Well, if you do all the work yourself, you could have the swap done for less than half of what you spent, since you already have the motor.

I wonder if the FPR and injectors are messed up.

You certainly are studying these photos . so the block behind the wheel was he kept it in neutral so he could roll it to mow around it . its been in the garage and it has not been on the road since 2009 . i plan on doing the work . already have the motor and transmission and everything i need out of a grand prix so . hopefully get it all done before next spring

I looked at the pics once, but I hope you post a build thread, so I can watch from start to finish. I started here after you, and most builds seemed to be either long done, under way, or abandoned. Sure, there were some swaps posted, but lots of the pics were gone. I've been following Elky_78's build.

This car appealed to me, so I'm interested. There is nothing like posting something to share and getting no response, so I thought I'd respond. My enthusiasm is high at the moment, but will be low for the next round.

You have to resize your pics in the future.
They are over 300K and more than 1000 pixels wide...

An error box pops up telling your this...
