    '02 WS6... finally joined the 4th gen world

    Hey everyone,

    Just joined and picked up my '02 baby 3 days ago and I love it. Had to drive 4 hours to Greensboro, NC to get it though.. lol. Its got 69,500 miles, black, auto, and as far as I can tell fully loaded. Paid 19k plus 1500 for a 3 yr 36k warranty. Possibly looking for some advice as to what to look out for, fix immediately, and/or cheap.. I mean inexpensive mods. Nothing special right now as I am still getting used to the huge increase in HP from my Camaro... lol. Have noticed the brakes/rotors might be going as sometimes when braking the steering wheel turns a little one way or the other.. and according to a service check, the rear diff is "seeping" a little.. approx a $96 fix.

    So any/all advice/suggestions/friendly ideas are more than welcome. This car is very sweet... never had so many people try to challenge me before! Granted haven't taken any of them partially because I am not sure how the car will react and several of them my Camaro could have/did take in the past.

    Lol.. thanks. I have been in love with the '82 Black T/A since I knew what a car was.. the Camaro was the closest thing I could find back home in WI, then picked up the Formula, then the Firebird.. and since I beleive the engine is starting to go on the Camaro, I needed a reliable DD, so it was time for a "new" Black T/A in my opinion.. so I finally got it.. and I figured if I am going to pay for it.. I might as well go all the way!

    For those of you that would like to see some more pics, I snapped a few with my crappy 2MP camera, so ignore the quality and that the car isn't clean. But go to http://formulaproject.com/transam.html and let me know what you think. And if you want to snooop around on the progress of the Formula, be my guest. <grin>
