Nice!! Are you sure that is a Formula and not a regular Firebird?

Sweet collection, BTW. I love color of the 1st gen! No 2nd gen, though?
That is a good question! I was told that all were formulas unless they were a T/A. There were no markings on the car as it was a repaint from red to white and I have never really checked it out since it was for the boys to drive. Any correct info would be greatly appreciated! I did put the wheels on afterwards as it had the salad shaker wheels I think they were called?

Just did some inquiring and if the car is not a T/A but is a V8, then it is a Formula. At least in 1992.
Yup, that applies to all Formulas.
V6 looks + V8 engine = a Formula. :)

.....so I suppose you could call that the Formula formula :lol:

Not quite so. A Formula can still have the 305TBI motor, but it has to have the "Formula" package that is WS6 on the RPO sticker in the little door on the left side of the rear hatch. It is basically a suspension package with a few engine options.

Formula's are the most goodest, by the way... :D

Okay, I will check that out next chance I get. Thanks for the further info.

Also, the '91 and '92 Formulas had a wrap-around wing as opposed to the base Firebird spoiler that is on your white one, along with a "power bulge hood". Here is a picture of my sister's '91 Formula to show you what I mean. That is a really clean Firebird however. Great starter car for your boys. :roxor:
