Ban One Trans-Am

The Trans Am was a specialty package for the Pontiac Firebird, upgrading handling, suspension, and horsepower, as well as minor appearance modifications including exclusive hoods, spoilers, fog lights and wheels.

Despite its name, the Trans Am was not initially used in the Trans Am Series, as its smallest engine exceeded the SCCA's five liter displacement limit.

Available from 1970 to 1981, the second generation Trans-Ams (as seen here) were quite the movie stars, featuring in the 1977 movie Smokey and the Bandit, the 1978 movie Hooper, the 1979 movie Rocky II, and the 1980 movie Smokey and the Bandit II.

The Firebird Trans Am was also selected as the Official Pace Car for the 1980 Indianapolis 500.
