The 1990 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350 Is An Unasuming Muscle Car From A Very Bad Period

If you are an American gearhead, you’ll probably agree that 1990 was not the greatest year when it comes to American performance cars. With that said, the Pontiac Firebird Formula 350 was one of the cars that proved there is a light at the end of the tunnel for GM. In 1990, the Formula 350 joined the ranks of the 1987 Buick GNX and the 1989 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Turbo 20th Anniversary as more attainable American alternatives to the Corvette as well as European sports cars. Moreover, this particular example, listed for sale on Classic Cars, proves that despite being a limited edition, such cars are still attainable.

Carmakers Told To Fix Big SUV's Front Blind Spot After Shocking Experiment

The perceived safety of driving a tall SUV like a Cadillac Escalade or Chevrolet Tahoe is understandable. But despite being taller and heavier than a sedan, not all SUVs are equally safe in every crash-test scenario. More worryingly, SUVs pose a greater risk to pedestrians because of their tall bodies and massive blind spots. Research from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) from earlier this year determined that SUVs are a bigger hazard for pedestrians when cornering, and now a prominent US Senator has questioned safety authorities in the country after a shocking investigation by a News4 I-Team in Virginia demonstrated just how bad modern SUV blind-spot zones are.
