Holy friggin sleeper, that "formula 350"'must bring shame and tears to just about anything else on the road. I know I would want to return my vette if I got toasted by what looks to be a very clean but stock looking thirdgen bird.

i'm assuming those wheels are custom made for this car??? i always thought that this car was corprately sponsored by Hawks. maybe it was just the YouTube video was sponsored by Hawks.

as i said, this is my all-time favorite 3rd gen, and maybe the "best car" i've seen, period.

yeah, i got a few. i post up pics whenever i can vaguely justify them in a post.

want me to PM you pics and tech?

are those Torque Thrusts on your car? do they require spacers? i like my Formula wheels, but not the limitations on brake upgrades and tire options. Torque Thrusts arent the style i would want on my car, i dont think, but still curious as to whats out there.

TT II's, no spacers required. You can add pics to your photo album in your profile. I have my original wheels in the boxes the TT II's came in.

one cool thing about that Maui Blue color is that it pops, regardless of whether its sunny or cloudy outside.

mine too. i think they're the same. but then maybe there is a slight difference. Maui Blue may have hints of green, where ours have hints of purple. but people commonly refer to the shade as Maui Blue.
