That is incorrect. This is another TransAm clone car using the Camaro as a base.

Firebreather was a different car along this same series, but not all clones are Firebreathers.

Looks like a TransAmDepot car or close to it. They make other oldschool conversions as well.

Not a fan, but it is one of the better looking conversions. The biggest flaw though is that they did not remove the gills. Doh!

Well, real 2012 Trans Ams are a little difficult to come by.

74k and no t-tops? pass

Looks nice tough but i'm not a big fan of the batman front grill. I prefer the look of my 2000 WS6 grill.

I don't think it's a TransAmDepot job. Their cars are more detailed than this. To me it's a half-ass attempt. Gills not removed, not lowered, probably no motor work or any other performance mods.

Here's a TransAmDepot car:

Actually, with the body style this needs an older model Trans Am front end, like '69 styling.
