I created an account here way back in January of '07, but only made seven posts before going dormant. I met Jesse today, as he came to my house to buy some parts. He told me about this club/site, and when I checked out the link he sent I realized that I had an account here.

So, anyway, I have owned three birds ('92 TA, '92 Formula, '95 Formula) but the '95 is the last one standing. I have been trying to get rid of it, since it has been frustrating the heck out of me. Off the road for two years, and a recent water pump/tune up had me wanting to punch the car or set it on fire. I just don't find it fun to work in that engine bay.

Anyway, I hope to be able to get the car back together now and on the road so I can come to a cruise and meet some of you guys. Jesse made you all sound like a nice bunch of people.

I don't have many pics of the '95 (The Green Hornet), but here are a couple of her when she was on the road, and then one of her as she sits now.

Thanks, Bob. I am going to try and get it back together and running. I think that once I drive it, I will want to keep it! We'll see...wife also has expressed a need for a family car since we have our first on the way.

Hello, blast from the past. Yeah, it was too bad Dave shut down the forum...guess he did not think there were enough of us on there. He does all his parts business from eBay now, too, I recently learned.

Thanks for the compliment. Car looks good, but it is just a driver.

Hey Dave!!! It's Dan with your 92 Formula!! I had no idea you had an account on here. It's nice to get away from some of the idiots on TGO once in a while lol.

For those who don't know, Dave is the guy I bought my 92 Formula from. Great guy to do business with.
1992 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350- my baby. My summer DD, runs and drives great but needs some minor work. Current mods: 4th gen center console, aftermarket Alpine stereo and Polk Audio speakers. Future plans: new exhaust system (winter project), engine overhaul and upgrade once the L98 gets tired (which won't be for a good long while since she's been well taken care of and has another 150,000 in her I'm sure) and new paint job and decals. Current gremlins bugging me: a passenger window motor dying a slow and painful death, a very slowly leaking power steering hose, and a drivers seat that likes to recline and rock back and forth without me touching the lever lol. I'd love to get a nice set of black 4th gen seats for it at some point but it's not my main concern. My Dad's the only one who can't stand the current seats lol


She's not perfect, but she's still awesome!

Unfortunately I'm away at school now so I really don't get to see her as much :(. This summer should be a good one. New rims (The Ronals in the picture below) are going back on the car, and by the end of the summer I hope to put a new exhaust on it, but we'll see

Dan!! Cool deal that you are on here. I don't do much on TGO anymore, either. Not the warmest place on the web.

Tomorrow should be a good day for you...your kick panels and speakers should be arriving! :popcorn2:

Hey Dave,
Welcome back! Good to see you decided to check it out again.
Yea man, it was fun talking with you on saturday. Had a good time. Spent all day yesterday getting that hatch on and swapping the interior but it was a blast. I think kate took pictures with her camera so if she puts them up here make sure you take a look.
Well we'll be keeping in touch anyways. talk to you later
