I wish people would stop trying to make a Trans Am out of a Camaro. Its just plain ugly. The Trans Am is dead. And its probably rolling around in it's grave with the ugly renditions people are pulling out of their asses. If the TA was still around, it would not be a Camaro with a front bumper and rear tail from the 2nd and 3rd Gen. Even the last Trans Am didn't copy that look. And $65,000 for this blasphemy?! You gotta be kidding me. Sorry to be soo harsh. But Pontiac made one of the best looking sports/muscle cars of all time with the 93-03 TA. And they were GM's performance division. These guys these days are just killing that reputation and memory.

I agree, for that kinda money give me a GT500 or a ZL1 and with that you got the real thing.

well, I guess you can't blame people for trying, but yep it didn't work out too well,

if they would have made the whole grill black, left the trans-am off, and made the wheels all gold it would have looked better, or better yet just blacked the whole thing out, even in a flat black, it would have been pretty nice,, but who-ever had the brilliant idea to put a 70's theme on a car that is 40 years newer doesn't have much fashion sense. it would have been better to restore a 70's car with that theme.

2012 1LS Silver Ice - Mods - SS Strut Brace, RX Catch Can, BBK CAI, TRS Bi-Xenon HID's, Blackout Grill, RX65 Radar Detector, 700watt 4 Channel Amp with Kicker Speakers, 4Pack Gauges Added, 30% tint. Baer Drilled Rotors & pads, 20" American Racing. Awesome car.

Some people still clamor for the "Screaming Chicken" even after 40 years and I am sure they will sell some of them just not to me...
