I have been looking for an 84 Indy but I missed out on this one it had already sold and was only 30 minutes from my home.

Bets on it being just a fuel pump?

That's what I figured. I would kick my ass if I could for missing this one. I hope the new owner find great joy in his Indy.

I still call Fieros $5k-$6k cars. To get them to 95% you will have to spend 5-6 on them. Tires, seals, dew wipes, etc., etc.... It all adds up pretty quickly.

I know I already fixed up an 88 gt 5sp. Just wanted to add an 84 Indy to the stable.

Here is one just 20 minutes north of me at the other end of the price range and it has more miles than the one for $1500

One did not know what he had and the other thinks he as a gem and it's not. It looks like the driver's seat even may have a tear in it on the expensive one.

How come the INDY'S have such a wierd looking rear vent? It's not two different one's on each side, it looks like one piece in the center.

I have to wonder if he gets that price what yours would be worth?

I have one sitting in a shipping container in my yard. I had intended to restore it but that doesn't look like it's gonna happen. I might be convinced to part with it and all the parts I've gathered if the right offer comes along. Let me know if you're interested. It was driven into the container about 8 years ago and has slowly become a collection point for any little geegaw that I just didn't have the heart to throw away.

Every time I see an Indy, I am tempted to buy one.. Then I remember what a pathetic excuse for an engine was put in them (even by 1980's standards..) and it just turns me off. That thing could barely spin the wheels in gravel. If it had the 1.8 or 2.0 Turbo from the factory, it would be a far more worthy car, especially if the suspension/brakes actually matched the car's appearance..

Oh well...

Indy cars are always going to hold more value no matter if it is slower than a three legged turtle. Don't buy it if you don't like it. I've seen Johns car and it is very clean and well maintained. The price he's asking is under what I would ask.

No problem. There are, and will be for some time to come, low priced Fieros out there. Remember, when you buy one for that range of price (think $500 to $1,500) then start adding in tires, dew wipes, sunroof seals, rust repair, a new battery, brake rebuilds, new cv joint or two, oil change, antifreeze flush and fill, belts, hoses, etc, etc it all adds up fast. Its $350 just for the Indy style scoop. Mine is get in and drive...period. I can get in it today and drive to Arizona and back. Everything works as it should and rubber seals are all fresh!

Where is the Indy Scoop from? Pics of the latching mechanism? Did it come painted?

Want to sell it I added the decals to mine. I have the turbo dodge wheels. I also plan to paint the black trim white to match the real pace cars this winter.
Just need the scoop now. (My car has a 3800 swap so I don't feel bad making it replicate the real car. One day I might go SD4 and put the 3800 in another Fiero.
