Couldn't help myself this weekend. Started changing up the look of the Formula. I can't decide what color I like, so I made it both.






------------------
88 Formula CJB
84 Fiero 2.8
84 Fiero 2.5
11 Camaro SS/RS LS3 6.2
13 Traverse LS 3.6
12 Silverado Z71 5.3
12 Tahoe LT 5.3

I know it’s your car to do what you want to….but a GT rear clip on a CJB Formula??
I do like the color combo though.

I know, right? I'm glad its not against the law. Thinking of doing a chop top on it, but I might get banned.

I hope so! I'm going to give you a neg now and avoid the rush..... LOL, just kidding. I'm just partial to Formulas that's all and would love to have an original CJB one. I never really understood why people do what you did and make a Formula into a GT but to each his own and it's not like it can't be undone.

I've put it up for sale a few times. I have all the parts to return to stock also. I dig the ttops, although this one is not a perfect example. Just a nice toy to play with. If I could find a gt to trade for, I'd be set.

Cool Flux Capacitor on the trunk.. what is it ramming air into? Can't quite figure out the air filter thingie sitting on the trunklid.. Is it hooked up to something? The Formula nose with fastback body look cool!

The filter was connected to the intake on my 4.9. I haven't connected it to the 2.8 yet.

Satin Black Krylon Dual.
It's getting a full wrap soon.
Deciding on the color. Probably Matte Orange with carbon fiber trim.

Finally completed the Formula!
I ended up wrapping it in Matte Black vinyl. Looks way better than the paint before.

I like it too, but then again, I am very biased as well.







I like the idea of t-shirts.

How about we see how many of these are out there?
