Pontiac Firebird Trans Am1969 - 2002
Category: Muscle cars
The Trans Am was a specialty package for the Firebird, typically upgrading handling, suspension, and horsepower, as well as minor appearance modifications such as exclusive hoods, spoilers, fog lights and wheels. In using the name Trans Am, a registered trademark, GM agreed to pay $5 per car sold to the SCCA. Four distinct generations were produced between 1969 and 2002. These cars were built on the F-body platform, which was also shared by the Chevrolet Camaro.
The second generation was available from 1970 to 1981 and was featured in the 1977 movie Smokey and the Bandit, the 1978 movie Hooper and the 1980 movie Smokey and the Bandit II. The third generation, available from 1982 to 1992, was featured in the 1983 movie Smokey and the Bandit Part 3 and the 1984 movie Alphabet City. KITT, the automotive star, and its evil counterpart KARR, of the popular 1980s TV series Knight Rider, was a modified third generation Trans Am. The fourth generation Trans Am, available from model years 1993 to 2002, offered between 275 bhp (205 kW) and 325 bhp (242 kW).

Totaled the car Totaled the car.. lady with no lights on, speeding and possibly talking on phone.. my fault that didn't see her.. stupid things happen. As these cars have no real frame most side damages are critical and like in my case the geometry is out.. time for a new body.
Restoration I plan to restore/repair my 4th gen Firebird, because previous owner did not pay enough attention for undecarriage and there are many rust holes, that need to be repaired, but as I have another rolling body with no engine and transmission I will swap everything from one body to another, because that......
Electric cut-outs For racing events and car shows I plan to install electric cut-outs after rear axle for sound and less exhaust resistance. Need to add, that I plan to leave stock catalytic converters or buy some high flow cats.
Pacesetters longtube headers Along with the planned engine and transmission rebuild, I plan to custom make true dual exhaust. Already bought Pacesetters longtube headers.
