I was watching the auction and my internet goes down. When I came back on they were rolling an Indy off the stage. What did it sell for?

Thanks, Jack

I believe this is showing that the Fiero is rapidly becoming a car of interest to collectors, and soon will be a regular item in the collector car agenda. I never saw a Fiero in any collector car auction years ago, now their slowly creeping in. What do you think ?

Only $3,500? Must've been in poor condition.

People just don't want the automatics. I have seen it over and over again, manual fieros get a better price.

Thanks for the info, I only saw about 2 sec of them pushing the car off the stage and the back half looked pretty good.

Wow, that car is definitely not in the best of condition. The engine has rust, and the bay in general is pretty dirty, same for the trunk up front. The drivers door has all sorts of paint chipping around the molding....

By many standards, it is a NICE Indy, but not one I would deem worthy as a collector car or anything.

Not a bad price for condition and auto. Cars always look a lot better in pictures. Good candidate for a decent restoration and then take it to car shows.If it was me I would restore it and put a nice 3800SC and enjoy driving it :-)

My dad was recently at one of these televised auctions in Harrisburg PA. He said that many of the cars were junk.
Not all high quality restorations like you might expect.

I'm a Mecum driver for the Harrisburg, Pa shows and there was a Fiero there this year that I missed driving because someone beat me to it. The show is Thur-Fri-Sat and they save the cream puffs for Saturday.

All drivers are volunteers so no pay but you do get to drive some interesting vehicles and you get a free Mecum T-shirt and Cap..

Last year a friend of mine drove a 53 Rolls Royce. When he got to the stage area he shut off the engine and the Mecum staff will push the car across the stage (for safety reasons) Don't want to risk an accidental burn-out on tv! Anyway they thought he had his foot on the brake or it was in Park. (No park in these oldies) The car was so heavy that it took an additional 3 Mecum staff to just push the car across the stage and they were nearly out of breath at the end.

All of our drivers are members or associates of the Susquehanna Valley GTO Club but they accept any Pontiac owners.

My comments on some of the vehicles are neutral for obvious reasons.
