Confirmed: "Phoenix" Trans Am conversion kit coming for Camaro

Confirmed: "Phoenix" Trans Am conversion kit coming for Camaro

Quote:
So... as of January 1, 2010, Pontiac is dead. Buried. Gone forever. No more. Obviously, something as pesky as death ain't going to stop hard core Trans Am fanatics from driving an (almost) honest to goodness 2010 Pontiac Trans Am and/or Firebird. Why? If you have to ask... you bring up a good point. Especially because when you get right down to it, the Trans Am was rarely anything other than a Chevy Camaro with different sheet metal.

Keeping that in mind, Trans Am Depot will be offering body kits that will transform (lowly) Camaros into full-on screamin' chicken Trans Ams! Based off Kevin Morgan's original design(s), the Phoenix Trans Am kits will be unveiled at the 2009 Trans Am Nationals. And then you'll have the chance to own a Trans Am that costs more than a Camaro but is just as fast. Hey just sayin'.

I'll wait for the Honda Type-R conversion kit.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

I'm going to reserve complete judgement for the unveil. The "yellow" car is obviously a photoshop. The black one I'm not sure about since they didn't pan around the car.

I will say one thing though:
There is no way they'll make this cost effective for the people who actually want a T/A. It'll be a neat novelty (like any kit car), but nothing more.

That being said, if they mass produce a three piece rear spoiler, that'll sell like hotcakes.

I just remembered the last time something like this happened...




It was a flop based on the 04 GTO. I expect this Firebird to suffer the same fate.
