    puprle again

    ok i know weve been over this subject a few times, but the other day i was at the light in front of an auto repair shop not far from home and i saw a white ws6 parked out front, and to the side a purple formula. I know there was only like 12 birds painted purple in 98, right? if so, how many were formulas?

    I wish I could remember what thread it was but someone had a graph of bird styles and how many they made in Each color. Hopefully someone chimes in with it

    Now that I looked I noticed it was your thread about the green ws6. On that graph it says there was only one purple formula

    That one Purple Formula WS6 in that old chart was in error. It was based on ASC build info I got years ago. I've since confirmed that all 10 purple '98 WS6 coupes were T/As and none were Formulas.

    There were 466 purple Firebirds (V6 & V8 combined) built in '98, but only 12 of them were WS6s (the other 2 WS6s not mentioned above were T/A 'verts). Breakdowns linked in my sig.....

    Hmmmmm... I had just ran across an ad here in TX where a guy was selling his purple 98' vert TA.Condition wasn't that great as far as the paint and other random problems but,I thought that might have been a "rarer" TA.

    I went to check the ad and it was sold apparently for $4800 under 100K miles on her... Hmmmmmm. I wonder if that would count as "One that got away"
    ??

    From the pics it looked definately worth fixing up.

    I clarified my statement posted above. There were 42 Purple T/A 'verts total built in '98, 2 of those were WS6s (leaving 40 purple non-WS6 T/A 'verts). Yeah, pretty rare. There's one around town here. Used to see one of the 7 SGM WS6 'verts (this one w/ white top) around town too.
