I don't think they'll bring the T/A - firebird/hawk back - sorry if we've established this or not, but I skipped the middle of this thread

I'm glad their not bringing it back, though not because I like either better than the other...well, I do - but that's not the point. They were essentially the same car, with a different face and @$$. And they were taking sales away from each other. IMO, the Camaro was the better half, even thought the T/A had more power at times, and people are bound to buy the Camaro, now. Because think, really - what other choice do people have? A Mustang that could get slapped by an Intrepid , and a Challenger that will cost as much as a small house... I KNOW there are people out there right now who want a sports car, but don't want to settle for a Mustang, and don't have enough dough for a Vette. Camaro is the answer. T/A would just confuse people - especially an entirely new model: What, what's the difference, which is better?

Now, if the T/A was designed totally separate from Camaro, like the G8, then I'd say "full steam ahead, this should be interesting"

It's just a chop of the G6 GXP. Note the wheels and front bumper.

I agree with those who said it would be a bit silly for GM to introduce a T/A like the old days.

However, they could make a killing (or an aftermarket company) replicating a T/A with a 5th gen build. That would catch some eyes!

If they do it in good taste, I would definitely buy a new Trans Am. If they do it like some of those Photoshops above, I'm going to blow up every Pontiac dealership I can find and use the Camaro as a getaway car.

You need to search the forum a bit. There are threads and posts already discussing this.

But, just to be repetitive...there is barely even an inkling of a chance that the Firebird will be released...it makes no sense to release it.

It is doubful, however I think i would almost rather see a new version of the GTO.

I am hoping that they do something cool though, they have the G8 coming out which interests me very much, but i would like to see some kind of sports touring or pony car from Pontiac.

That article is confusing, it talks about the Zeta chassis, then goes to say those are just going to be extremely kitted 2nd gens (at least that's what I read).

Your Right, They are extremely modded 2nd gens

heres some more info

YearOne has started manufacturing (restoration) of Burt Reynolds Edition T/As. I seen this on a Spike TV show a month ago. They come in 3 versions, BAN1, BAN2, and BAN3.

“Three decades later, and YearOne is teaming the star and the car together again, with a modern performance makeover that injects supercar levels of power and grip into legendary style. The Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am by YearOne. It’s undeniably cool. It’s seriously fast. And it’s extremely limited. Get one while you can.
The Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am by YearOne starts at $129,900.00”

“Ban III includes a 515-horse dry-sump LS7 7.0 liter engine, and upgrades include a 605-horse dry-sump LS7, or a monster 8.8 liter (540-inch) Pontiac V8 making over 650 horsepower. A 5-speed manual is the only transmission offered on the Ban III.”

You get the idea… check the link to get the whole low down, it’s a great page with video too

they are all 1976-1978 Firebirds, MOST true T/As. They are not the above concept picture in the post

Here is my take on everything.
First off i think Pontiac is looking to go in a "luxury" direction instead of a "performance" direction...for example look at the G8. Pontiac's have always sort of been that way...when comparing a firebird to a maro you can tell the firebird's lines/interior/and just over all look was better thought out than the maro. Since the 60's models i haven't cared for the maro's to much...hence the reason why i bought a firebird. But this new Camaro just seems to have it all. When i read not to long ago when someone asked lutz (i believe) why we would have to wait so long and his response was "we want to do it right"..i believe every word of that. Perfection takes time and GM seems to be realizing this finally. I would much rather have a Camaro and know that it doesn't look like anything else on the road. I think Firebird/Ta lovers would want the same thing if they were to start building them again. Being unique is what makes owning/driving a car so much fun. This is all just my .02
