As a vehicle rebuilder I'm always surfing the insurance auto auctions. I just bought myself a 88 GT 5 spd and spotted this car while looking for mine. Right now I'm not looking for a second car so I'll pass this along to the fellow Fiero infected....

https://www.iaai.com/Vehicl...er=5&loadRecent=True Listed as 16k miles but may not be acturate. This is a auction site that insurance companies sell there salvage. This car is not a salvage or insurance car. Most likely a dealer or charity car with the seller just not sure what to do with it. Still is a As-Is auction so buyer beware. Highest bidder gets it... But remember there's auction fees and you have to have the car out of there yard with in 5 or 6 days or there going to charge you $40 a day storage. You have to create an account with IAA and give a deposit to them before being allowed to bid. I thinks its 10% of what you plan on bidding. I'm not positive though as I have a dealer account but I'm sure anyone interested will figure it out. Most cars are dealer only but this one is available to the general public for bidding.

Highly unlikely that car has 16,000 original miles due to condition and the amount of original parts missing.

States "True Miles Unknown" The current bid of $1600 is about right for an unknown.

Doesn't look all that bad to me. Looks like right front corner got bumped.
Engine looks clean enough and dirty like a car that has sat for many years (as opposed to high mileage).
I'd say it's definitely worth looking at in person for anyone that's interested.

Sorry been very busy rebuilding a Ram Power Wagon the last week. So this forum and my GT have been on the back burner. Anyway no I didn't buy it. I did see it on the auction list but being the high miles and that I don't need any parts for mine I let it go.
