Looks like an Indy.... the stickers were a dealer option or the customer could buy them.

Like they said, it could be a real Indy and not have stickers.
Edit: just looked -- it does have the Indy "wing" on the fender.

Just curious why you guys would question an Indy for sale. Are people making Indy clones???

I've probably been out of the buying and selling of Fieros for a while (I've had 9, heh). I still have my first Fiero (will probably have that forever).

I used to see Indys driving around now and then. There was one lady here that was local that had one that was totally ratted out. I've seen a couple of them in the junkyard. I know they made ~2,000 of them... but that doesn't make it the rarest Fiero though.

Have the prices of these suckers gone up?


There's a guy around here who owns a towing company and owns pretty much one of almost every Indy pace car vehicle... his Fiero Indy is immaculate.

From all indications, it is an Indy Pace Car. Checking the RPO will solve this, but it looks like an Indy, minus the door panel graphics. Not everyone wants to have vinyl graphics on the side of their car. I think the Indys look nice without the lettering on the side.

The other thing you guys have to take into account is. The sticker's are just some cheap peice of vinyl that can easly be peeled off once it starts to look bad..

The real question is why a duke with 31,795 miles on it needs a $3,000 rebuild?

Ran it to hard. I know people that have completley mechanicley destroyed a car within 20K miles without wrecking it.

Lol have you ever heard of a Vtec solinoid going.. My friend accomplished that within 10K miles of owning a brand new RSX

It's a duke, he probably thought the engine was toast, had someone do the work. Imagine his suprise when the rebuilt engine sounded just like it did before the rebuild!!!

I once sold a new Toyota Landcruiser the guy that bought it started to drive it around Australia except he never had the 1000km service nor the 10,000 service he had about 15000km on a ceased engine some people have no mechanical reasoning what so ever.

A few have. I've never heard of anyone trying to pass a clone off as the real thing tho--not on PFF anyway.
