    Making of the modern Trans-Am replica

    I spotted this video who show how they transform the Camaro into Trans-Am and GTO.

    Trans Am, GTO? How do they get away with using GM product names?

    I'm assuming they've licensed the names. There is a reference in the opening to having an exclusive, worldwide licence.

    The question is, are they going to produce Trans Ams based on the 6th Gen? I didn't see anything on the Trans Am Depot website to indicate that they are.

    No mention of price tag. Since these are very low volume vehicles, there is very little amoritization of cost. Is it worth the money to have the fenders, hood, seats and brake pads changed? I am relying on the abilities of Chevrolet's engineering to deliver a quality vehicle.

    I like how the headlights can actually be seen.
    Chevy seems to have their stylists working hard to hide them.

    I love the old Smokey and the Bandit Trans Ams and these are nice, but I wish they weren't so cartoonish.

    Did they license "Pontiac Trans Am" or just "Trans Am"?
    Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.
