Indys are more work to restore than other Fieros....mostly because of the unique trim parts that are hard to find. I like restored Fieros too, but realize you are not making an investment. It's a labor of love.

yes some were 88s, none had cradles, and they all were rust free, prob closer to 70 really, I didn't watch the crushing, I couldn't stop it, I did save all the parts I could. I tried to sell the frames on here but only one person got one. Now that one will be a lambo, yea. I could only do what I could to save parts but I had no say in the matter.

Still worth saving no matter what you use it for. All we really have to go on for information is the price and that it doesnt run tho. Depends on what you want to do with it too, 84s are a little different than 85 and up. Other than the fact that an Indy is more rare, there really is no advantage either has over the other except cosmetic in my opinion.

Just a thought: In your other thread I think it may have scared people from posting when you mentioned the stipulations in the last paragraph. I know you dont mean it to be too limiting but it may make people shy away. Small comments and things will help keep the thread in page 1 and help inspire more interest and information. Also because I know there are people who will want to tell you not to use those roof scoops because the way they hook up they work against the natural flow of air that cools the engine bay. There have been a few threads about it. If you still want to use them, you may just want to change your last paragraph just to say that you have read about the roof scoops and like the look and will run them for that reason.
