1989 Pontiac Firebird Formula -5.7L V8 -Automatic Transmission -39k Miles -Red Over Gray Interior (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1989 Pontiac Firebird Formula on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 145 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, and a link to the Firebird's accident-and-damage-free, low-mileage Carfax history report, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) My '89 Pontiac Formula is so sweet I may hang on to it forever. �€" Scott Oldham, Hagerty, September 2019 More of Mr. Oldham's sentiment: You know the old saying, everything is for sale. And I have thought about selling the Formula over the years as my collection has grown and the values of third-gen F-cars have risen. But then I take it out for a drive with the top down, usually up Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu, and run Mullholand and the area's other twisty two-lanes like Stunt and Schueren. It isn't fast compared to today's cars, but man, does it drive sweet. Just like it did on day one back in July 1989. I think I'll hold on to it. Forever.

Owned by the same individual for 30 years 9almost forever), the car is virtually entirely stock and unmodified. It shows every sign of having been very well-maintained over its life. The Formula model is favorably regarded both for its engine and its WS6 performance suspension. (WS6 stands for Wide Suspension/6 pieces, namely 2 thicker sway bars and 4 stiffer springs.) The car's odometer shows 39,890 miles, or a very conservative, fewer-than-1,300 miles per-year on average since new. The condition of exterior paint is always a reliable indicator of owner care. Here the bright red paint's gloss is consistent and there is no sign of fading. Reflectivity is excellent from front bumper, across the hood (with rear-facing scoop), to the rear-deck spoiler. Another indication of owner care lies in the condition of exterior graphics, in particular on a car like this which has no three-dimensional emblems. White decals account for all identification. This car shows a completely crisp and undamaged Formula signature on the front bumper, the Firebird symbol and Pontiac on the rear, and the large Formula 350 door identification. All cabin glass is undamaged; the large glass hatch has been dark-tinted to avoid interior-surface sun-fading (yet another indicator of owner care). Lighting lenses-including on the pop-up headlights-are clear and free of cracks. Factory 16-inch, angled-spoke alloy wheels with WS6-branded center caps and Pontiac-embossing are mounted with Hankook® Ventus V2 Concept performance tires. One more indication of owner love: the car's original owner sticker was carefully retained. (Please see the photo gallery for images of the window sticker showing a complete listing of the Firebird's standard and optional equipment.) Inside, the combination of light and dark gray makes for a perfect complement to the red exterior. Door panels show how well the combination works (both shades of gray with black trim). Vertically pleated, light-gray cloth (in excellent condition with the barest minimum of expected wear on the outside bolster of the driver's seat) covers the well-bolstered seats. Cabin-floor carpet (including the cargo area) is darker, charcoal-gray, again with some wear-indication in the driver's footwell. The Pontiac-branded, contemporary-design, sport steering wheel frames four driver-oriented instrument openings including separate tachometer and speedometer, as we
