    2002 Formulas

    Never seen a thread dedicated to 2002 Formulas. These were some of the lowest production numbers made. There were more T/A convertibles then Formulas. I have a red Maple, one of 5 made. One was totaled(emailed by owner) and another was parted out last year. The Formula is like the redheaded stepchild. Lets see some pics, and when I figure it out I will post mine!

    I have a black 2002 with an m6. Runs like a raped ape it has a lid and fra mod thats it. I think the Formulas are rare I have only spotted 2 in South Fla. I dont know how to post a photo. The hood has some scratches otherwise it turns heads its so nice. The end of next year I want to get long tubes and a cat back. Fast car!!

    RED
    2002 FORMULA

    Thanks 9T8. Well do you consider it a Firebird? In 2002 there were 9900 firebirds, 19900 T/A, 14900 WS6, 1348 special editions. 901 Formulas...... If we include all "Firebirds" it 2.8% of production. Formula is as much of a firebird as a T/A. Still, the lowest production model, and you never see them around. Also, my burnt maple is 1 of 5. Sounds like some of that Obama math at work.

    Funny you say that RC, my Formula was from down there. I actually had it there for 2 months last year while I started the HVAC division in Orlando/Tampa.

    nice formula 9T8, dont see too many of those!

    Cool

    Would a stock Formula be just a little quicker than a stock T/A all other factors being equal?

    Theoretically yes because Formula's have a slight weight advantage.
    But in the real world it's mostly a drivers race.

    that is for 1 year..9t8 said 98-02

    also a formula is more alike a firebird then a t/a..the t/a's had serveral body modifications ..the forms got a ls1 engine..thats it..with that being said..i love the formy's !

    "Burnt Maple"?!? Seriously?!?
    What's the color code?
    Curious, never seen that particular color before.
    And there is no 'Burnt Maple' in the 2002 color code sheets.

    As far as pic go, there are many free online photo hosting sites.
    Webshots, Photobucket, etc., etc., ...

    All things being equal, yes.

    But I think all Formula A4s came with the 3.23 performance rear end, and most base Trans Ams came with the 2.73s (like mine ).

    Nope, mine has 2.73's.

    I believe it was all A4 WS6's that got 3.23's.

    The standard gear on all Auto equipped LS1 F-bodies is 2.73 (RPO GU2)
    The 3.23's (RPO GU5) were an extra cost option but were required on WS6 and SS models (but still at the extra cost).

    Silver Metallic
    2002 Formula

    I have a 2002 Pontiac Firebird Formula. I love that car, there are only 2 in my area, mine and a beat up blue one. Mine is the silver metallic and is fully loaded with every option. Its an auto with SLP Loudmouth I exhaust and has 17" Boyd Coddington Smoothie II's on it, 17x8 up front and 17x10 in the rear. I just got my windows tinted too to match the black of the sail panel birds. Other than that she is bone stock. I don't know what the numbers are exactly on my car like how many in that color, with these options, and all that. It would be nice to know.
