    You know, this might just work. I've been thinking about taking my G8 and buying the conversion kit for it to turn it back into a Holden. If GM had any GUTS(which they don't), they would quietly allow dealers to sell converted Trans Ams. Who knows, they might have a greater demand for converted Trans Am's, than Camaros. What scares me about this is GM might stop Phoenix from using Pontiac logos or even Trans Am logos because of copyright laws. Even though Govt./Gutless Motors killed Pontiac, they would never allow anyone to use the name and maybe outshine themselves!!

    Still the best Trans Am rendering I've seen to date.

    Not a bad idea. I wish more folks would do this with other car models.

    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice. Doesn't quite look like the pictures from autoblog, and I'm still up in the air as to which I like better. But either way it's a good lookin car.

    Personally I'd get an 02 WS6, and cam it. I know a girl with an 02 SS that had been camed, I am relieved to say I kept up with it. The 02 Trans Am looks like a F*c*i*g dragon. But, hey if you want some whimpy bird on your hood, that's cool.
    I have seen the boobs. And they is us.

    As a T/A fan, I think the screaming chicken and bandit era of cars are forgettable. Having a big bird on your hood is just plain tacky and it should stay in the 70's. Doesn't this look much better?

    IMO, needs some revision to some details but very nice. First would be to give it a dual headlight design. Then, things like getting rid of the Camaros triple indents on the rear panels, revising the tailights, getting rid of the fake intake on the front of the hood and revising the interior mods. I would also use the BRE Trans Am hoodbird instead. I wouldn't mind having one in my garage!
