The fourth-generation F-body continued the aerodynamic formula initiated by the previous generation, but saw declining sales. As before, the Camaro kept the exposed headlights and the Firebird its pop-up units, with some minor changes. The overall styling of the Firebird more strongly reflected the "Banshee IV" concept car than the 1991 "face lift" received by the Third Generation model.

The mid-1995 and later models had a 200 hp 3.8 L V6 as the base engine, and the power rating of the LT1 had been raised to 285 in 1996, due to a new dual catalytic converter exhaust system. 1996 was also the first year of the OBD2 computer system.

1996 was the first year the WS6 Performance Package was made available on 4th generation (93-02) Firebirds. For 1996 (and 1997) The WS6 Package was available on both the Formula and Trans am. The WS6 package included a larger 32mm front swaybar (base V8's being 30mm), a functional ram-air hood (similar to that of the 93-97 Firehawk, but with slightly different styling in the hood, and smaller air filter than the Firehawk), 17"x9" Wheels with 275/40 tires, and a WS6 Badge. Optional Bilstein Shocks were available, but not standard on the WS6 package.

  • Power Windows
  • Power Door
  • Power Top that function perfectly
  • Black Canvas Convertble top in excellent condittion

  • The transmission and engine do everything right with power and smoothness. I have enjoyed many drives in this TA gets all the looks and questions. This is a true sports car and a pleasure to drive.

The body is in very nice shape overall. (Please see pictures as they show the vehicle  very well) 

The interior is in very nice condition with only minimal signs of wear on the leather. The air blows very cold. All of the options appear to be functioning as they should. The tires and chrome touring wheels are new.

I own a small car dealership in Florence South Carolina. Any questions feel free to call or text me at 843-617-8077.

 This is a very nice and highly sought after Trans Am Concertible.  These are great cars and  becoming very hard to find. You really don’t see to many of these Trans Am Convertibles out there anymore and the low miles make this one worth pursuing.

2013 Hurst Edition Trans Am

Mon, 13 May 2013 14:58:00 EST

No, you didn't read our title wrong. This is a 2013 model year Trans Am, and yes, that is a Pontiac logo affixed to the front of the car. But don't bother dialing up your local General Motors dealership just yet. This is the new Hurst Edition Trans Am created by the Trans Am Depot located in Tallahassee, FL. Having spent a number of years restoring early Trans Am models, the crew at Trans Am Depot finally did what many Pontiac enthusiasts wish GM would have done - create a modern Trans Am using the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro.
As the former owner of a 1977 model, I've been wanting to check out Trans Am Depot ever since I first saw the company have American Choppers build a trio of motorcycles inspired by its Pontiac remakes. So I jumped at the chance to head to Florida's capital city to visit the shop and drive its latest creation, the new Hurst Edition Trans Am. As a collaboration with Hurst, this car made its debut at the 2012 SEMA Show and then popped up again on our radar with a cheesy yet perfectly fitting video back in March.

Looking back at Oprah's free-car giveaway 10 years later

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 00:01:00 EST

Oprah kicked off her 19th season in dramatic fashion by giving all 276 members of the studio audience a free car.
Molly Vielweber's Pontiac G6 appears unremarkable at first glance. It wears forest green paint, rolls on five-spoke aluminum wheels, and it has a sizeable scrape in the driver's side door, the scar of a decade's worth of hard use. You wouldn't notice it parked at a big box store or cruising on the highway. Pontiac made hundreds of thousands of G6s in the 2000s, and a lot are still on the road. It's unremarkable in every way except for the front license plate, which reads, "Oprah 6."

1939 Pontiac Ghost Car commands $308,000 at auction

Mon, 01 Aug 2011 17:58:00 EST

For the 1939 World's Fair, Pontiac built a Deluxe Six bodied in Plexiglass. Part of the Previews of Progress pavilion in which General Motors' Futurama showed off what was to come in the world of autos, the 'invisible' Pontiac is credited as the first transparent car in America. And there were no shortcuts taken with its body: the Plexiglass form was fabricated by the company that brought the material to market in 1933, Rohm & Haas.
The see-through sedan was sold at RM Auctions' St. John's auction in Michigan on July 30, fetching $308,000. Not bad appreciation for a domestic oddity that cost $25,000 to build when new. You can check out the high-res gallery of its innards, including copper and chrome metalwork and white moldings and wheels, and get the exhaustive details on it after the jump.
