    Geebus, the level of detail and the lengths they went to for this project is steller!! That 455 engine in a G-machine 2nd gen, EPIC!


    I think these are the guys who are behind the new Discovery Channel series "Trans Am". Interesting they were able to buy the exclusive rights to the Trans Am brand, I wonder if GM would sell the rights to anything else Pontiac, in whole or in part.

    Series Premieres Tuesday, October 2 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery

    Previous Image 1 / 1 Next
    In 1977, the country watched the Trans Am race across the silver screen and a new generation of car lovers was born. For years, American muscle cars ruled the road, but that time came to an end… but the story doesn’t end there. Entrepreneurial brothers Scott and Tod Warmack risked everything they had to acquire the exclusive rights to the Trans Am brand to pioneer a new-era of the American muscle car. Together, the Warmack brothers embark on a forward-looking journey, fueled by nostalgia, to restore and recreate an American staple while forging a reputation in the competitive automotive industry in Discovery’s all-new series TRANS AM, premiering Tuesday, October 2 at 10pm ET/PT.

    1st gen body , second gen trans am ? Should have done the 1969 trans am package and looks.

    The white and blue 1969 trans am convertible or coupe with two forward facing scoops would have been more accurate.

    The screaming chicken decal? The second gen SD 455 trans am was apersonal favorite back then.

    This is an example of an abomination..

    I agree. I appreciate the desire to bring the car back and the amount of effort involved, but the styling is just too cartoonish to really be a proper homage to the T/A.

    I appreciate the work involved, but I cringe at these "Trans Am" recreations. That's just me, though....

    Pontiac sponsored me in engineering school. I loved Pontiac and still do, but please, please let it go.
