9 birds? are they registered, do you drive them all? just wondering, I have 3 registered cars and can barely afford the insurance.

I'm not a big fan of 3rd gens but those seem very nice.

Love 3rd gens.  I have had a 84 Camaro Berlinetta, an 1989 Firebird Formula, and still have an 88 Trans am GTA Flame red 5spd 5.0 TPI with T-tops I am restoring.  The Camaro is owned by one of my boys now. and the Formula was for awhile with my oldest.  Nice bird house.  Wish I had one that big full of birds!

As for some of the questions, no they aren't all registerd... Yet.
I'll see if I can get all of them and brief discription of them.

The car on the very left is my wifes 98 RA T/A a few mods (I had the rear emblem off for a pretty new one)
Next car to the right is my 89 TTop Formula 350. I've had her since 91 and it has 240,000miles. Stroked and poked 400 miniram 235 AFRs solid roller ford 9" rollcage and a bunch of other mods. She has some nuts  :cool:
Front subframe for my 70 Formula on table in the middle (pic below)
Next is the Maui blue Formula 350 vert. Its one of 42ish 350 formula verts made by ASC. One of 4 with a top other than black and one of 2 thats dark blue. Its stock but ruff shape with a blown motor, block is at machine shop now. Being rebuilt 100% stock.
The JY 92 T/A vert is supposedly one of 24 and shes had a ruff life. Long term project but runs and drives just fine.
The JY 92 Formula 305 5sp on the lift is a documented Dealer installed SLP parts car. I am building a 92 Firehawk aluminum motor, comp package clone car out of this guy. My list of parts I need is shrinking fast and this will be a fun car that i'll let anyone drive!! If you see it at the T/A nats in a year or two just ask to drive it and we will have a tire smoking good time!!!
There is another 89 formula in the back that is a friend of mines and he keeps it here for helping me build the garage
The "hawk" in front of the garage is a friend of mines clone that is seen in the pic with a real Hawk in the pic below..
I sold my red white interior 73 T/A, 455 auto, no console, 4 option car
I have a 73 formula pile of rust (my 1st car)
I just got a 91 T/A parts car that was loaded with SLP parts.
Of course there is more but they are parts.
There are a buttload of birds in my area and for a small town its very cool!!!

A pic of my wife and my car on our wedding day this summer (yes she got in and out with the dress and car having a rollcage!)
Thats my bro-n-laws 79 SE next to mine. It has 50k miles on it!


Here is a pic of Hawk #13 with a clone that I rebuilt the engine for


Here is a pic of my 70s front front subframe at my old job.

I think they are in short supply because you have them all!!  :P :lol: :lol:

Great collection! I would really like to add a 3rd gen T/A or GTA to my collection. My wife doesn't like 3rd gens, so I have to work on her.  :lol:

Nice, Congrats on the Wedding.

I think I recogize you from Team 3rdgen, before it went facebook. I don't the the facebook thing.

There is a nice little 3rd gen Firebird on the St Louis Craigs list I think a 91, one owner, its a v6 but maybe you could buy it drop in a LS and leave the outside looking v6 and have some fun.

I also really like the 3rd gens and they are rapidly coming into their own for collectibility. Here is my buddies bowtie we drove 4 hours each way late at night to make sure it didn't get away. 60K miles, 5.0/700R4 car.

Full hotchkis suspension, Tubular K member, subframe connectors, roll cage, Wilwood brakes.
305 is heavily built. SLP runners, Holley throttle body, bigger injectors, stainless headers, cam, rebuilt and modified 700R4

and a slew of other stuff I'm not remembering for the car overall.

Now just if it had an arrowhead instead of a bowtie! haha





Love some 3rd gen!!

Been quite a while since I've posted in here but have been slowly working on a couple of the cars, the 89 asc formula 350 vert Is up and running but not painted and the JY 92 formula is closer too it's up and running but needs a tune and some touch up paint. (moving plus wife and kids tend to get 1st dibs for time)
