The Trans Am was Pontiac's sporty answer to the Camaro, and was the most sought-after of the all the Firebirds. The sheet metal was based on the Camaro, but a new nose with split grille and double headlamps either side ensured the looks remained pure Pontiac. The car was named after the American race series, so came with all the right components fitted to make it a street racer, uprated springs and shocks and more powerful brakes being just a some of the parts. The owner of this car has gone one step further by fitting rear discs brakes from a 1979 model Trans Am, and there are wide 7x15 inch (178x381mm) rims with 235/60 tyres to take full advantage of the new powertrain. Long gone is the original small-block, in favor of a late-model Tuned Port Injection small-block, which gives as much power but with more miles per gallon and better manners.
