Car was claimed today. It's gone now.


Really surprised that I did not have a single inquiry from this forum.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a rust free California Formula with automatic transmission and sunroof free for the taking. (There may be some rust on the battery tray as is common). The car has a clean title and is on Non-Op so there are no fees or penalties due. This was a reliable running car until a few months ago when it developed rod knock. I have already taken many of the usable parts as spares for my other two 88's.

The car is rollable but not steerable since I have removed the steering column. Suspension and cradle are intact. All brake calipers have been removed as well as nearly all the interior including the instrument cluster, seats, seat belts, visors and ECM. Other parts removed are the IAC, TPS, EGR solenoid, evap canister, the complete Gen 2 headlight system (but not the buckets or doors) and taillights. The car has a wing but at least one of the wing stands is cracked.

All body panels are currently still attached but the white paint is heavily oxidized and down to primer in some places. The original Formula wheels have been removed and it is sitting on two slotted style wheels and two spares. I'm doing this from memory. If you have any specific questions let me know.

The car is located near Sacramento, CA. If you are interested you need to contact me asap. I need the car gone by May 15th. If I don't have any takers the car will go to Pick N Pull by that date.

Rust free Formulas are rare. If the car was sold intact you may have achieved a higher resale value but partially parted out its probably worth only a few hundred bucks. Still a great find as a project or parts car.

I'm not interested in offers. I'm not interested in resale value.

I'm offering it to anyone that can make use of it. I just want to keep it from being crushed.

As stated in the post... CAR IS BEING OFFERED FOR FREE.

You've been a victim of what so many of us have had to endure from that one. It's just ridiculous and predictable.

Too bad you aren't closer. I just shelled out $600 pulling a lot of the parts from a yard you're giving away on this car (complete front suspension, rack, etc).

Free bump.

I have added pictures to the top posting.

I just added this car to the local Craigslist free section. I could probably get $50 from Pick N Pull for the car but I would prefer it go to a Fiero person than to be scrapped.

This car will go to the junk yard in a week or less. Contact me asap if you are interested.

Im not. I've been selling parts only for a brief time on here. But i have found most of the active people on here are back east or Midwest. This kills the ability to move any large parts. Craigslist is hit or miss i hardly post on there. After 3 months someone on CL finally picked up the full 88 suspension front and rear i had for $200. They weren't even going to use it for a fiero. (Dude builds batmobiles and likes the fiero platform)

Had i not gotten my GT i probably would have taken you up on this due to having a complete car with a salvage title and needing chp inspection. Plus all of the pain to get it street legal again.
You also did what i was initially planning on doing and that is completely gutting the car before talking about sending it to pnp. I abandoned the pnp thing because i decided rather have the suspension and body panels.

Glad you got it gone and hopefully to someone who will do more with it than PNP.
