I agree, I hate the numbering of cars. But remembering cars and their names is all about the car, too. The CTS is a great car, and that will be remembered for a long time, because Caddy did it right. G5, eh. G6, eh. I think G8 will be remembered as well, just as much as people know what WRX, STi, XKR, F50, 928, 944, 911, etc. refer to.

Cool idea, and I'm 100% sure somebody will mock up a body kit...but I can't imagine many would-be Firebird buyers ('cheap' performance) would buy that kit...only the die-hard nostalgic folks.


sidenote: everytime I post in this ****ed thread...my posts come out sounding negative towards the Trans Am...ugh!

no your absolutly right in the aspect.. a kit..would be a total slap in the face to firebird fans..and a price adder.

But your right it will be done when it comes out just like the GTO/Chevelle project..

And what do you mean numbers/letters are not as known as names..
Everyone knows what a CTS is
Heck IROC-Z is letters for a longer word but you know what it is
and the long stand out.."Hey what kinda car you drive"
"I drive a Z28" nuff said People know Z28..even though its not the name of the car..no matter what it is its only a name of importance if its a car that deleivers..Look at GTO..same thing with the letters. when the GTO came back and everyone said its not a GTO it took the hits and lived up to its name, actually more so than that..
When the G8 hits the streets people will know what a G8 is.

USA1Camaro The GMPP idea would be great. GM would really be covering the bases with that. They wouldn't have to directly compete within the Corporation and would fill a need that many people would potentially buy the retrofit body panels.

It could be kinda like the Camaro F1 kit, but I think it would do much better than the F1 kit.
Now you're talkin!

I wonder what a kit would run? GMPP $$$$

Some factories are experiencing a slow down right now. If someone is serious about the project might be a good time to request quotes. There are probably people working on it as we speak.
I thought I had read/heard that somewhere but couldn't remember for sure. Getting old is hell.

Dirtfarmer Look at this T/A issue from another angle...

How long before a third party starts selling Trans Am front and rear clips (including other assorted badges/emblems/decals) to be attached to the new Camaro?

Luwinkle Octane has it right. The 12 came from the expected MSRP, $12,000. But US regulations jacked that price up way high while raping performance.
