    Formy ws6, t/a bumper

    Has anyone seen a Formula ws6 with a t/a front bumper? I like the clean spoiler and no side skirts like the Fomula, but do like the t/a bumper. It goes well with the hood I think. Any pics?

    If you notice the bottom of the front bumper cover lines up with the ground fxs.

    looks like a bastard child to the trained eye go formy w/ firehawk hood or t/a ws6 for a win

    formy w/ ws6 looks like a rhinoceros to me

    the ws6 hood was designed with the t/abumper in mind, the way the scoops on the hood match the scoops on the bumper almost exactly make for a purposeful, fitting look

    The formula scoops on the bumper still match up nicely with the sccops on the hood. The same way they would on a T/A. Personally i like the T/A bumper and spoiler better than the formula but the ws6 hood on the formula still looks badass. And the ws6 hood was made with the formula bumper in mind aswell as they did make ws6 formulas.

    i know this,

    but the t/a's bumper scoops were actually designed to be identical

    yes similar but not identical. The ws6 hood on the T/A looks better imo but the formula still looks awesome and not like a Rhino lol. Looks are all personal opinion, some people think formulas looks better than Trans ams and the other way around.

    I actually like sleak beak t/a's because the ws6 looks like too many gills and overdone a little. I like the ws6 formy out of regular and it because the regular one is identical to a v6. If I reallywanted to bastardize it I'd build my dream car. Lt-1 formy front bumper and a t/a wing with honey comb tails. But that's not going to happen. Asking about the t/a bumper was just thinking out loud, wondering if anyone had
    pics of it. The thing I hate the most about a t/a is the rear bumper

    And yes, the formy does look like a rhino I like it though, the rear looks beefier without ground effects blocking the 315's. I also think the short wing looks more muscular.

    imo, the formulas are rare enough i wouldnt mess with it. some people like the trans am's looks better than the formy's and vice versa. I like both equally. They each have their own kinda of style. I'd say spend your time and money on something else. . .

    I love the formy front bumper the lights to the side set it off. The T/A rear spoiler looks the best. The 17" wheels look good on the formy with out the ground effects.
