I have the opportunity to purchase an original owner 88 GT.  It has a new paint job (original color)  100k miles and seems to be in great condition.  Other than cosmetically, could anyone tell me mechanically any warning signs or what to look for?  What are the most expensive repairs with Fieros?  I have never owned a Fiero and dont really know what to be looking for.  Thanks.

suspension parts are going to be expensive.   The 88 had one off suspension parts.  Only made for that year and Fiero specific.   

You will need to be aware that a car this old will need a lot of care and attention to normal wear and tear parts.   Suspension, clutches (if manual), steering racks, some electronics.     

I probably would not buy a Fiero to be a daily driver.   At this age, they are more hobby cars.   

Good luck.
