Not mine, friend from work found it and showed it to me.. Id actually like to get it, but i dont have the time, space or money to start another Fiero project. (wanna finish the current one first.) So i thought id let you guys know about it in case anybody wanted to snatch it up for a fix-er-upper..

Has two Fiero for sale. $200 each.. One is an Indy, the other just a Duke Fiero.. Looks like he bought the fiero as a parts car to restore the indy, but never got too it or something.. The Indy looks like it needs lots of love and care before its something to be proud of, but hey, its an Indy for only $200, im sure someone here could do something with it.. Both cars are white, the Fiero is the top two pics, and the Indy is the bottom two.. The Indy really doesnt look all that bad, interior looks fairly decent, at least the seats look good. And i cant see any body damage, hard to tell from the pictures though..

So for $400 you could get an Indy, and a parts car to help restore it with.. Not a bad deal. I bet the Indy parts alone would be worth much more than $200..

It sucks the window in the Indy is down....probably been down since it was parked there. I can't imagine it has power to put them up /down and well....it's down.

I'm always amazed honestly at the whole "ran when park" wording people used in ads. If it "ran", why was it "parked"? Shouldn't the correct wording be "It got-a-problem-and-I-didn't-want-to-throw-the-chunk-of-change-to-fix-it-so-I-parked-it-when-I-probably-should-have-just-got-rid-of-it-when-I-could-have so I parked it"? It for sure doesn't look like it's going to run now... at least not in any sort of safe driveable manner without serious work.

Someone pick those up. I don't like scrapping vehicles, but it's probably worth $200 just junking it not counting the parts you can get.

It looks like they tried to cover the window with a tarp, the tire put there to hold it down...but after 6 months the tarp disintegrated. In other words the Indy interior is trashed.

Yea , a shame, since the interior bits of a indy are the most sought after for restorations.

I picked up my Formula last fall and it was advertised "running when parked"...and it was! Turned out the guy is a car hoarder, sees a car he likes, buys it, drives it, sees another one he likes, buys it, parks the first, drives the new one until he finds another one he wants etc etc. He had about 30 cars, most like brand new (has an Indy with the window sticker still on it and a 88GT T-Top inside). Unfortunately the Formula was one that he got after the barn was full and got parked under a tree. It does happen.
And i agree, that is the lest of THOSE cars problems.

Anyone that buys the Indy can drop it off at my house. I am game to restore another one.
