    thats a custom original v6 car, theres an article on it (post #24), its not factory, THERE WERE NEVER ANY FORMULA CETA CARS. ALL WS6 TRANS AMS. T-TOP OR CONVERTIBLE.

    but it is a cool concept of a formy done up as a ceta (article on post #24) , just not cool to slap a formy bumper on a legit ceta car

    Just saying it doesn't look that bad IMO. How is changing the whole paint scheme of a car different from using a formula bumper?

    Also to the OP what were you thinking for wheels?
    Just sold a set of C5 magnesium wheels, powdercoated black would look sick on your car, think the car in the pic even has em.

    I was looking at a set of Torque Thrust, I believe the "M" series came in black so thats what I'll be looking for. But a set of wheels is far in the future, I have to concentrate my funds on critical rebuild parts for now....but thanks for the info

    Saw that before, i dont think the bumper looks bad. The TA one looks good and better to me also, just saying the formula one looks good also.


    edit: and it did have the same wheels

    Was referring to the same car which was a prototype i guess
    Saw the article a long time ago and thought back to it

    I agree, the custom CETA formy in the posted pics looks good also....i just personally prefer the T/A font bumper cover

    because a t/a with a formy bumper looks retarded and anyone with a trained eye will laugh at you:



    t/a bumper has ground fx on the bottom, formula is smoothed on the bottom,

    in other words t/a bumpers match the rest of the t/a

    lots of formula drivers throw that spoiler on their car and love it
    Its all personal opinion

    Edit: and you edit your posts a lot

    not bashing formys ws6s, i'm bashing bumper mix and matches of the two cars

    seems like every now and then an add will pop up for a trans am and it'll have a formy bumper on it because it was wrecked and the guy couldnt afford to fix it right

    Yes, I feel that same way......

    However, I'm either going to keep it a true CETA (minus paint) or do a custom. I don't really want something inbetween. If I don't do the Z15 it will be a stock-looking CETA (rims, decals, ect.)
