About “1976 cutlass”

It is an all original car. The car has not been touched except fothe top witch was dyed the same color of the interior. It has a 350 rocket under the hood. Have all documents from the day one it came home. It camer from Long Beach CA. I found this car on ebay and the lady wanted it to go to a good home. I asked if the car was reliable she asked where I was from? I told her Nebraska She snicked and said she has family in MN she would drive the car there if I would like to have it. Many photos later and 350 miles later. We finally met up. The car was better than the photos. 1 hour later the car was on a trailer. And my wife and I were on our way back to NE. Have been to many shows and have taken many 1st and 2nd place awards. By the way I had one in high school that is why I wanted it. This is all little something my family and I enjoy. Thanks

About “Formie”

I saw this car for sale at a Caddy dealership in Marietta, GA in July 2004. I have always liked the Formulas, so I had to check it out.

After a quick, uneventful testdrive, I traded my 1999 Buick Century (a solid car in it's own right) for the Formula.

The car has been my daily driver ever since. I started with about 32K on the odometer. Now, it's approaching 130k with very little trouble. It has been a great car, and a lot of fun!

It's not a show car, but it goes to car cruises and shows now and again. Mostly it works for a living...taking me daily to the places I need to go.
