2002 Pontiac Trans Am


The Pontiac Trans Am was a car manufactured under General Motorsʼ (GM) Pontiac Division from 1969 - 2002. Pontiac, which was disbanded by GM in 2010, was considered the performance division of the company and gave America great cars such as the Firebird, GTO, LeMans, Bonneville and Trans Am.

In 1967, Pontiac debuted their “pony car” called the Firebird (the same year, Chevrolet debuted a similar called called the Camaro). The Firebird had characteristic pony car styling and was available with a variety of engines and transmissions. In 1969, the Firebird was offered with a $795.00 upgrade package called the “Trans Am Performance and Appearance Package” which was an upgraded engine and exterior badging. This was to honor the racing circuit called “Trans Am” that debuted in 1966 and was best known for its competition among American V8 cars such as the Mustang, Camaro, Barracuda, Cougar, Javelin, Challenger and Firebird.

The Trans Am package was available until the cars demise in 2002 and continued to offer higher levels of performance through its lifetime such as an upgraded suspension, upgraded handling characteristics and a larger horsepower engine. It also included modifications such as a different style hood, spoilers, fog lights, wheels and graphics. If you are a child of the 1970ʼs, you remember the carʼs fame in the movie “Smokey and The Bandit.”

This car is the final year of production. It has the rare convertible option and has minimal miles on the odometer.
