    I slid my formula off the road in a deal snow storm 3 and a half years ago, gotta love Utah weather. I've been slowly piecing her back together but sering everyday and not being able to drive her really sucks, I can't imagine not having one period. That's why I'll never sale mine.

    Not too bad really, put a new track and pinion in last fall and was able to drive it, just not wanting to jump the gun. I want to replace all the suspension before committing it to a daily driver again, she bounced pretty bad. It's just taking forever because I started a divorce 5 months later and now have child support, a new wife and 2 new kids and another on the way. Love my car but my family more.

    the only thing i hate about owning a fbody is that guys always want to steal them,i dont hear about GTOs being stolen as much as t/a's and camaros,i knew a guy who had his 01 ss stolen,he never saw it again,then he got a 01 t/a someone stole that too so he was done with fbodys and got a g8
