I just came back from a 4 hour trip that should have been a 20 minute trip. I picked up a black on grey 1985 GT 4spd with the 2.8 V6. Exterior is in very good condition (typical wear in typical places, like the edge of the sunroof). Interior is also in fairly good condition (again, typical wear on the left side of the driver's seat). My friend who rode with me (he owns a tidy MkII Supra) was extremly impressed on how well the car wrapped around corners and how being so close to the ground kinda made him feel uneasy haha. The engine has some very nice pull in 1,2 gears (3 or 4 couldnt be found... gotta have some fun with the linkages)
Now for the fun stuff...
-I need to fix the emergency brake. The cable has way too much slack and the "brake" light on the dash stays on and beeps.
-The engine didn't like me today. At first, it stalled going up hills (rev's jsut kept dropping). Then, at the bottom of one hill, it stalled and didn't feel like starting back up again (electrical, presumeably... Alternator not charging/battery not holding charge... also a bit of a misfire in the ol' 2.8). It also ran a bit hot (who knows what that could be, but I'm shopping around for a new V6/V8 engine anyways)
-Transmission. It's a 4spd. But only liked 1/2/R gears. I'll have to redo the linkages (any help from someone with Fiero experience in shift linkages would be greatly appreciated ). Other than that it shifted very nicely
(engine coming out)
Linkages need fixing
And just for fun, my roommates 84 2M4 and the engine going into it (3800 Series I)
