1979 Pontiac Trans Am (Race Car)
How impressive was the Pontiac Trans Am? More specifically, how impressive was the 1970s era Pontiac Trans Am? The Trans Am will go down in history as being by far one of the most famous and infamous classic cars out there, and there is no argument that the 1970s era for this classic was the most desirable and the most well-known and appreciated. In 1979, Pontiac made a race car version of their original Trans Am. This car was faster, tougher, handled better, and was just overall a more high performance car.
A lot of changes happened right before Pontiac closed out the decade in 1979. The front end of the Trans Am was restyled in 1979. Coincidentally, 1979 also marked the 10th Anniversary of the Trans Am’s production, and a special anniversary package was made available in this year too: silver paint with gray upper paint accents and a silver leather interior. Whether people got the anniversary package or not, the 1979 year was still a very special year for the Pontiac Trans Am. In fact, in the year of 1979 Pontiac sold 116,535 Trans Ams all together, the highest sold in the history of the production of that particular car.
embodies that look completely while still retaining some traditional elements that we know and love from the 1960s. One such look is the top of the rear window line going almost straight down to the lip of the trunk lid, a look that was overall there to absolutely epitomize F-body styling for the longest period during the Firebird’s lifetime from its beginning to its end.
All in all, the 1979 Pontiac Trans Am is a special and very exciting car with over 1200 H.P. under the hood. It marked ten years of Trans Am production. Pontiac arrived late to the game of American muscle cars, but better late than never! They caught up quickly with their ever-impressive Pontiac Trans Am, and this model in particular was one of the most famous, if not the most famous, of them all.
