    Black 2002 Formula M6
    SOLD on 11/21/2009

    I have a gorgeous Black 6 speed 2002 Firbird Formula with less than 36k orginal miles. ( I purchased her from the original owner a little over 2 years ago when it had 33k miles...I've only put on another 2k miles ) Have decided just this week to sell her and will be asking $17k or best offer for her locally. Has not been advertised yet at all as I have just made the decision to sell her.

    She's very fast and sounds just awesome but has never been on the race track or abused in any way. I'm the 2nd owner and I'm in my 50's ( had her a little over 2 years ) and the original owner who ordered her from the factory was married and in his late 30's. Never abused!

    I would probably sell it to someone here for $15k even which is a extremely fair price in my opinion but I'm ok now in selling her where before I thought I never would be ok with letting her go. If I don't get $15k for her I'll just keep her as I don't need to sell her immediately.

    Here's a video I posted of her on YouTube after I first bought her.

    I've got 66,456 on mine. Another 44 miles and the warranty is out. I think that is this weekend.......lol.

    I bought it in April 2007 with 30,500 on it though and was really excited about the mileage.

    I'm going to store it for the winter though. Love it and will miss it this winter.

    I take it you would leave the tags on and insurance in effect if you stored it for the winter?...I ask cause I was thinking of storing mine for most of the year but I would hate to turn in the plates and registration and cancel insurance because I know I would have the itch to take her out for a drive every so often.

    What are your plans regarding storing it for the winter?

    Well............ I didn't buy my WS6 to abuse w/ Indiana salt in the winter, so it only goes out when its dry. Combined with living close to work and having 3 other cars to drive, it just works out like that. Believe me, I drive mine whenever I get a chance, but if its wet out, or if the kids are along, or I'm picking up stuff that only fits in the bed of my truck, my WS6 sits.

    Yeah, I would probably keep everything in effect unless I tear it down. Then only liability insurance. My tags don't expire til May next year.

    Our State Farm coverage allows us to have limited coverage in the winter months. I simply contact my agent and let him know that we are not going to drive the car anymore and the monthly premium is about cut in half. This maintains coverage in the event the car is accidentally damaged, but I am not paying for other coverages (liability may remain due to state law). Also, I do not need to send the plate back to DOT. In the spring, I simply call my agent and ask him to reinstate full coverage and we can drive the next day.

    Same here. It's still covered in full if something happens but the cost is literally half!!!

    17k on my 2002 WS6, original owner. I would probably have a lot more but I have two kids now who keep me busy.

    Same with me. I store from around Nov-April. Saves some cash not having full coverage that's for sure. Also have mine classified as a show car b/c I drive it less than 5K a year (at least the total miles tells them I do!) which saves some.
