Trans Am-FirebirdThere is a lot of fluff about if GM will ever come back with a Trans Am or a Firebird, but that is just what it is, fluff. Of course, if GM does decide to bring it back, there would be a lot of car enthusiast very happy with their decision. But if they are planning on making this type of move, they are defiantly keeping a very tight lid on what they're going to do and when.
There is one fact that has been made very clear by GM. If they do bring back the Trans Am and Firebird, they will not be bringing back the Pontiac line. All production would be under the authority of GM and the Pontiac name would not even be used for the very well loved sports cars. One last thing that is pretty well known about the situation is that they would probably be produced alongside if not in the same factories as the Camaros, and would be sold at GM/Chevrolet dealerships where Camaros are sold - or they could quite possibly be much like a COPO Camaro - specially order.
Build Your Own Trans Am/Firebird
If you are someone who does not want to wait for GM's decision and you must have one, there is an alternative. Companies like the Trans AM Depot and a few others companies that can be easily found on the Internet, build awesome looking prototypes of Trans Ams, Firebirds, Hurst and Firehawks that can be customized personally and purchased by private owners.
The process is really cool. Brand new Camaros are purchased - then the ground effects, bumpers, spoilers, interior and whatever else needs to be replaced with prototype parts are taken off. Then for the unique styling that replicas what a new Trans Am would probably look like if GM was to start making them again are placed on the car. After that comes your awesome coloring scheme and badges, along with whatever other special treatment you may want done to your new Trans Am. The nice thing about these projects are that they're made from new Camaros, that should that should be engouh reinsurance that you are getting a great car.
