Well it is a pretty sweet little white 1985 Fiero GT 2.8L V-6 car. 30,000 miles on it, one owner with paperwork.
I researched it on the net as much as I could, finding all the recall notices and other owner statements, but was still interested in this car.
I found it advertised on AutoTrader.com and the car was located 300 miles away for $3500. Well I bought it, and a rain storm broke out and the wipers didn't work, so that was the first thing to fix. Was also hard to see out the back window, as the headliner was torn. It made the trip back 300 miles home, but the passenger front brake froze up and needed repair. Tried to get the wheel off, only to find a locking lug and no key, so chiseled one off (took all day) to find 1/64 lining left. Had to take the car to a dealer to get the lugs removed on the other three wheels, then replaced all pads, only to find the master cylinder was blown.
Replaced engine oil and filter, and transmission oil, as it was long over due. Then the battery went dead and needed charging. This all happened in two weeks time.
I still have to bleed the brake system, and change out the cooling system fluid, and have the air conditioning system converted to R-134 or find someone to charge it with R-12. Then a complete ignition system check (plugs, wires, cap).
After all this, I can get down and start my body mods, such as a hood cooling scoop for the radiator, twin snorkel scoops for the back deck that raise to the roof of cockpit, and a Mustang hood scoop mounted in reverse, with another radiator cooling fan mounted inside, then two side scoops behind the doors (left for air cleaner and right for oil cooler), then finishing the whole thing of with two twelve inch stripes down the top of the car. I have seen one of these done this way, and it looks trick, although of course there will be differences.
I can't wait to get it back on the road, and to start all the rest of the project.
The tires are really good, and the interior is great also.
The car looks to have been taken care of up to a point, but not neglected.
