About formulas7002’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

I love restoring and racing Classic and New(er) Formula Firebirds. I adore all Pontiacs, all Classic cars and all Musclecars!
My goal was to have the 1st year 1970, and last year 2002 of the Formula Firebird - which I have! Formulas are always under estimated, but carry the full performance of the TransAm without the extra weight of ground effects & spoilers.
I am Sugar and Spice and everything nice, I am just a little spicier than most! My dad had always wanted a son, but I am what he had, so I was his helper. I have worked on cars all my life, and discovered how wonderful Pontiacs were when a former boyfriend had a 65 GTO, and I have been hooked ever since! Pontiacs are my passion! Nothing sounds better to me than a big block Pontiac motor screaming with a wide open throttle.
Two things I find really exciting are quarter mile racing (with both cars), and racing the 4th generation on a SSCA track!

My first car

1960 Bel Air, 2 dr ht, 348, 3 speed.

Car I wish I still had

All of them - except the rice burners. 60 Bel Air, 64 Impala SS, 65 Chevelle SS, 69 Firebird 400, 70 Lemans Sport Coupe 400, 78 TransAm and believe it or not my old 94 Olds Bravada, That truck REALLY came in handy!

My dream car

65 GTO 389 4 speed, or a 69 TransAm Convertable.

Believe it or not the paint is all factory with the exception of the Raptor Hood. The look of the paint now is because of Steve Pasztor of ShowroomFX...the man is a miracle worker. Check out the July 2010 edition of High Performance Pontiac Magazine "2 Buckets and a Bird" article and you will see in detail the miracle Steve performed on my car smile image

Thank you for the positive comment!
