FORMULA OF TODD EARLEY
this is an excerpt from the articles
appearing in the EAGLE
Here are pictures of my 1989 Firebird Formula. I bought it in August of '99 with
58,000 miles on it. I got the car for $5,000. I would have paid any amount for
it. As soon as I saw the car I knew I wanted it, the lines, the stance and
everything about it appealed to me. It has a 305 tbi engine, automatic
transmission, WS-6 suspension, and power everything. The car has been a dream
since purchased it. I have had minimal trouble with it.
This is the first Firebird I had ever owned, and upon buying it I had no idea
the fraternity I was joining. Everywhere I go I get comments on it.
Firebird owners are a rare breed. There hasn't been one yet
that I have met that doesn't know every square inch of his or her car, or
everything about my car for that matter. I never really cared about cars or what
made them work before I bought my Formula. Now I can hardly wait for the next
project. I have made a lot of friends just by owning my bird. Instead of just
working on my car I find myself in the garage of other Firebird owners seeing
what I can do to help. A lot of people find my fascination with Firebirds
strange. These are also the same people that have never owned one or driven one.
All I tell them is to drive one just once and you'll see why Firebirds owners
are the ultimate car enthusiasts. Hopefully you can fit these pics of my pride
and joy in your magazine.
