After nearly 10 years of working on Indy #623 I more or less gave up.



It was my vision to make it my daily driver, but even though "all it needed was an alternator" many, many parts and build threads later it was still not reliable transportation.

//www.fiero.nl/forum/A...050410-1-042082.html

//www.fiero.nl/forum/A...110502-1-051917.html

and multiple fires

//www.fiero.nl/forum/A...090219-1-066985.html

Here's the good news... I am now the Proud owner of Indy #1578



For those keeping track this Indy used to belong to Maryjane and before that CenTexIndy.

The east Texas sun has taken it's toll on the paint and it's not as nice as it appears in the photos, but it's waaaay nicer than Indy #623. And there are dozens of minor issues, but nothing that prevents me from driving it. And it will be a driver, and not a garage queen.

Welcome to the Family....Proud-4

Thanks BlackThunderGT

I still have #623 and I am torn between

a) selling as-is

b) continuing the decade long task of making it a running driving car, or

c) parting it out.

d) none of the above

Sell it.
It'll be a drain on time and money from #1578. Let someone else have a whack at it. I wouldn't part out any Indy that was savable.

Yeah, selling it as-is would be the smartest thing.

I'm not really thinking of parting it out...

right now it's just sitting, (option d) but there are a handful of parts on it that are nicer that would easily slip over to #1578....

So that's more of a cannibalistic thing...

All you Indy drivers forgot to tell me about the "sticker effect" After one day of driving it, I discovered that it draws a LOT of attention. First fill up and a guy came over and admired it. Of course he knew someone that had a Fiero and wanted to reminisce.

On the highway, a group of teens pulled up beside me and were gawking at it.

I get a lot of nods of approval in mine at red lights, I love it! Good luck with this one, hopefully it treats you better.

ive been there also with my indy as well - "all it needs is an alternator" .

Had the exact same thing happen to #71 when i first bought it. Turned out it need ALOT more work.

This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

As for your previous indy; I echo what others say about your first one.. keep or sale as is.. don't part it out. To few remain that are salvageable.

As for folks stoping and catching looks.. yep they do that.

I'm glad it found a new home, and it's someone deserving of it, especially considering all the years you have supported the Texas Fiero community, and made so many contributions to PFF.

Glad to see the Indy went to a new owner that will enjoy the car and bring life back to it. Looks good and will have to check it out when I come down that way here shortly....

Oh I'll be at RRR, unless there is a hurricane or something.

Yes my son will be driving soon. I am going to attempt the parent taught system despite everyone telling me that's a bad idea.

my Boss caught me driving the Indy into work today.

The Indy's intimate me. I like to change things up, but man do I also enjoy reading the rebuild threads of this type of Fiero. Awesome find!

It couldn't have gone to a better Fiero enthusiast! You gonna do an engine swap?
Don said in another thread that he has another Fiero to let go of, but I don't recall what it is.

Thanks Joe, but the joke is I changed the alternator years ago, but #623 needed a lot more than that.

I took this second picture of your car Oct. 10, 2004 in Kerrville, Tx. CenTex sent me the upper picture to use as a Desktop. You were in Proud-2 that weekend.

Tried to fill the a/c the other day but no-go. Performed some trouble shooting to reveal that the pressure cycling switch was not closing. I went and grabbed the one off of Indy #623 and voilĂ  the compressor kicks on and sucks in the refrigerant and I have cold air. Who knows for how long but let's hope it's manageable. I've been feeding the leak on Proud-2 for 12 years now.

I had it leak checked 2-3 times at the local shop, and they could never find the leak. A charge usually lasted about 30-40 days.
Coolant could use a flush or at least replacing--never had any problem with it running hot tho.
Pretty sure I just topped it off with water when I got it started for you to pick it up.
I have a new poly dogbone for it somewhere--I'll have to find it tho.

Thanks for the heads up.... 30-40 days is a bit faster than I would have hoped... but if I keep topping it off with refrigerant with dye the leak should become really obvious I would hope? Unless it's hidden somewhere where it can't be seen. I have gauges too. Just put the adapter on the back so that I can see what the high side is doing. I have a vacuum pump around here somewhere as well. I need to be able to fix these a/c systems myself otherwise it's way too expensive.

I just noticed today the dogbone didn't look entirely fresh but the engine is running so smooth the dogbone is not really doing much.

I need to put on an O2 sensor before I do too much more. It's running in open loop and using more gas than I would like, but more importantly it's setting the check engine light which I would rather not see.

If you can't find the dye on the line fittings, then think evaporator core. If there is florescent dye in the system, drive it in the dark some, then check the dripping water in your drive way with a black light.

Thanks!

But been there, done that...got the t-shirt.

I'm going for a bone stock look, but I've got a vented brake upgrade kit and Eibach lowering springs on-order ... safety and handling requires that I bring certain aspects into the 21st Century.

Got my plates for the indy today:




Two things to note for Texas residents...

1) the generic personalized plates don't exist anymore. You either have to go through www.myplates.com or personalize one of the existing specialty plates.

2) The good news is that "Classic Auto" plates are now available at no additional cost. You don't get any benefits like "antique" but at least you don't have to pay the price for specialty plates on top of the personalized fee.

Antique are special plates that are good for 5 years, and no inspection required and cost about $50 but come with restrictions that you are only supposed to drive to shows, parades, and events of public interest.

Classic cost the same as regular plates and give you no special privileges other than they are only issued to cars 25 years or older but you can daily drive them to work or school without being worried. They used to charge extra for them, but now they are available at no extra cost. So all Fiero owners can switch to Classic at any time for no extra charge.

I just picked Classic because it's way cheaper than going through Myplates.com
