Looking for a little advice
Wondering what my 1999 Formula may be worth if I choose to sell it. I'm a little torn between keeping this car or selling it and building a 67-68 Pro-Touring Bird and having the best of both worlds. My first car was a 70 GTO which I sold when I bought my house 10 years ago and have regretted it ever since. Here's some info on my Formula:
- Bought the car new in 1999
- Currently has 8,800 miles on it
- Black with t-tops
- 6 speed with Hurst Shifter
- all stock except for the WS6 wheels I put on it
If I decide to keep this car I will be putting some money into the performance upgrades and will actually start driving it.

Depends on how you market it, with the economy the way it is 15K would be a stretch but not impossible, just dont settle for less than what you want, the right buyer is out there you just have to find them..
Either way goodluck bud
J2001 SS, Its not the car its the Driver that matters....

Thanks for the info. There's actually an awesome looking Pro-Touring 67 LS1 powered Bird for sale at diamondmotorworks which would be tempting to deal on if I got a good price for my Formula.

Whatever you do, dont sell/trade it in at a dealership. You'll get a lot more money from just taking the time and selling it privately. A 99 ls1 formula with 8,000 miles is a rarity, espcially one with a 6 speed.
Or you could hold out a year or two and see if the economy starts to turn around, unless this is the 21st century great depression, that would suck.

that bird is sweet. i always wondered what exactly constitutes a pro touring car. what exactly does it need to be considered pro-touring

Wow, 10 years and less than 9000 miles on it and it's stock, you will get top dollar for your vehicle. Sell it here in California, you will get the most money cause I've looked around and F bodies being sold here are priced way higher in California than in any other state. Persoanlly I would keep the car because you regreted selling the GTO and I think you will feel the same way if you got rid of her too.

If I get a chance this weekend to wash it I'll take some pics and post them up. The car gets pretty dusty sitting in the garage all the time.

I loved my 69 GTO... but for a DD I would rather have the 05.. I loved my 69 Firebird and would take it over a 4th gen .. but yea it really is what you want the most ...
