2013 Pontiac Trans Am

I'll track the build happening now at Trans Am Depot in FL. Hope to see the car completed in a few weeks. I am waiting on the t-tops until later this year as their new 2.0 version becomes available.

Started with a '13 2SS with Mojave interior. Hate to blaspheme for the TA faithful, but I am opting not to go with the bird on the hood.

Very early shot of progress. Fender extractors on, nose test fitted. Nearly every panel on the car will be altered or replaced.

Mild performance upgrades will be done here in Phx at Cordes Performance.

I'm a Pontiac guy at heart - had a couple of TA's back in the day and recently owned a G8 GXP as well as a 630 hp Solstice Coupe.

Stay tuned.

630Hp Solstice has to be a mean SOB. I will be watching the process of your build. I too love Pontiac.

Where did you see the Trans Am? I have not seen one in person -- the first one for me will be when mine rolls off the truck. Also, I have decided to have the t-tops added asap, even if it pushes the build longer. Gotta have the t-tops, right?

I'm interested in seeing this conversion. I had a few Trans Ams back in the day.

Interior is supposed to wrap up this week. With most exterior panels coming out of paint, progress should happen quickly going forward. T-Tops will be last and add 2-3 weeks. Hope to see car in June.
