I found this nice looking Formula Turbo during my regular web searches:

Looks nice and seems to be priced fair.

Looks nice. I like the silver turbo wheels..Hard to beleive it would be original paint after all these years.  When i was a kid a neighbor had a turbo formy.  Red with red interior & t-tops. Awesome car.  Wants with the guage under the steering wheel?  And is there something non factory under the radio?

Wants with the guage under the steering wheel?

That, I would bet, is an aftermarket "Boost" gauge.

And is there something non factory under the radio?

The "Black Plate" is normal, but the silver looking thing is probably an alarm LED.

I'd buy that car in a heatbeat, but as usual my middle name is "broke"!!!! :'(

I just noticed he lowered the price to $7950.  Seems like a better price now!

The looks like a compartment with a lock from what I see. I agree it is a good looking car.
