    when my son sold his first car an 88 camaro we targeted the 6 cyl birds and camaros but he only had 5 grand. we drove every weekend to many different cities and still had a hard time finding the right fit for him until we found a 94Z. a little high milaged but well taken care of and oh yea around 20 mpg and still very quick.

    I'd say only to someone who is specifically looking for one. Most people think T/A's and WS6's are automaticaly better, even though the T/A's are much more common.

    My ultimate F-Bod if a WS6 or Firehawk Formula, because I love Formulas.

    I have a '00 Formy too, btw.

    i was actually shopping for a trans am but i saw the formula...at first glance it appeared to be a v6 car...but i saw dual pipes out back so i took a closer look and found an ls1 hiding under the hood...so i bought it...turns out i like it just as much as i would a trans am....plenty of power...very clean interior..body is very straight....just has some spots where the clearcoat is peeling..but that will be changed soon...just these damn headlights....had similar problems with my 95 t/a formula...

    WS6, Firehawk & SS package is a waste of money from a performance stand point if you are going to mod. I wouldn't pay anything extra for one.

    No, but they ARE cool from a rarity standpoint.

    I bought a regular Formula, so it wasn't that important to me, but I still appreciate the rarity of the WS6 and Firehawk Formys when I see them.

    WS6 T/A's and SS's are all over the place, so I'm not impressed by those. There's just something about the Formulas. I love mine.

    I think the T/A either ws-6 or not is better looking than the formula, i had a 96 formula and everytime i would see a Trans am i would think wow that car looks better than mine. So i went with the T/A when i bought my ls1 car.

    i agree that the Ws6 looks better but with some work the formula's look very good. here is a pic of my older brothers formula.

    so it is personal pref. the formula's are about one hundred lbs lighter than the ws-6 due to the interior and ground effects.

    i was wondering myself if there was much of a weight difference...i thought about getting the t/a rear bumper cover but i dont think i need it to make the formula look better...paint and rims should do wonders even though to me it looks pretty good already,..

    Im not saying i didnt think my forumla or the ls1 forumlas look bad, i think look awesome, but i just always felt the T/A was a little higher class. So thats what i wanted and want again.

    honestly at 16 an ls1 is too powerful. I have had wrecks in only v8 sports cars. heck I had a wreck in my lt1 because my tire blew out during a small burnout

    I think the formula is for if all you want is performance. correct me if I'm wrong?

    I love formys too i used to have 94 lt1 formula the only thing I could not stand is that everyone and I mean everyone I would run into would think its a v6 just cause I did'nt have the raised spoiler ect it got a bit annoying

    Formula is much cleaner looking, IMO.

    I like the fog light location on the T/A's better and the ricer spoiler.

    just a hint of exhaust note would clear up the v6 confusion...cant duplicate that lovely v8 tone with anything less..or more.
