About

My first "Brand New" car, I ordered it from the dealer in March of 1994. It was pretty much a No Frills car, I didn't have a whole lot of money to spend so as a result, unlike many other Formula's mine had no power windows or locks, no cruise control. It didn't even have the 150 MPH speedo because I didn't have the money to upgrade to the performance package with the "Z" rated tires. As a result my car came with a governor that only let me go to 108 MPH before it kicked in and limited my performance. I suppose it was a blessing in disguise since I never got a ticket for going 125MPH hahaha

Specs

I wanted a unique color since most Formulas were bright red or black, I ordered mine in Medium Red Metallic, no T-tops and an automatic trans since my wife might have to drive it occasionally.
It ran a best of 14.12 @ 98 MPH which I thought was pretty good considering it had some really sissy gears in the rear.
