    Any other pics?? If I had to guess I'd say it was a replica. The hood looks a bit too long where it meets the windsheild. The Mirrors look OEM though. And that little blip in the filler piece above the bumper on the drivers side below the headlight. The wheels are not OEM, If its a replica its a very nice, most likely an AD body. But the angle of the pic makes it almost impossible to be sure. Side shot, rear window shot. Interior shot. these would help greatly.

    Thats the real deal that aint no replica. Just look at the headlamps i have seen the real macoy before and pretty much there is no way to replicate the headlights unless you take them from a real one. Plus the width of the car is a bit wider then a Fiero.
    So whats wrong with a replica?

    I think by the shape of the side scoops it is real. If it is a replica, it's a very nice one.

    I would venture to say it is authentic based on the side mirrors, depth and form of the door scoops and the way the quarter glass butts against the door glass.

    Very hard to tell from this angle. Besides the wheels, I dont see anything that screams "replica". If I was to bet, I would bet OEM

    I thought it was a OEM but the wheels threw me, plus I have another pic of this car and it sure looks like it is at a Fiero show...
