This 1981 Pontiac Firebird is a tribute to the Trans Am, but it takes the appeal further than any factory car of that year. First of all, the big 455 cubic-inch V8 was long gone from the lineup when this car was built. But this was restored to bring that level of serious power to the later and sleeker 2nd gen Firebird. According to the VIN, this started out life as a Formula model, which is far rarer than a factory Trans Am. And when they upgraded it to T/A duty, the classic Cameo White with .....
blue graphics pays tribute to the original Trans Am. Plus, all that blue on the outside is a nice preview of the updated blue interior. It all makes for quite a thoughtful total package. So take some extra time looking this one over because there is truly an awesome sense of power and style that was done with added care.

This is a really cool car that loves to respect its history in the best ways. It's the last year of the second-gen cars, but since the 455 was a factory option for the first few years, this is a nice reminder that it still fits in the later ones. And Cameo White with blue decals reminds us of the first Pontiac T/A they ever offered - especially because they used the old Trans Am font when they updated the graphics. So this T/A is specially customized for big power and added style, which means it's the car you want to both drive and show off everywhere you arrive. If that sounds like the ideal package to you then you know this needs to be in your garage, call today!
