> > This is the Kevin Morgan design concept of the 2010 Pontiac Trans Am. > > This is the original press release from when the car was to be released > > > Press Release > > Phoenix T/A > > Like its mythical namesake that rose from the ashes to a new life, the Trans Am of yesteryear has been born again... the Phoenix T/A. If it is true that good things come to those who wait, then we have surely been rewarded for our patience. > > Trans Am Depot is pleased to announce our partnership with designer Kevin Morgan in turning a three-year dream into reality. We, like many of you, have lusted over Kevin's retro interpretation of the '77 - '78 Trans Am based on the 2010 Camaro platform. We began early last year discussing the idea of how we might work together to bring this vision to life. > > Phoenix T/A Currently, we are completing a one-off Kevin Morgan "Trans Am" Concept, which we intend to unveil at the 2009 Trans Am Nationals. The concept will be followed by the first production conversion later this year. It will vary from the concept car but will be an exact version of the conversion kits we will hope to be offering this fall. We are working closely with a Detroit auto design firm to bring this kit to market. We will be offering everything from the body conversion only to the limited Phoenix Edition. The kits will be available as an installed conversion only. Order details, pricing and delivery information will be coming soon. If you are interested in having a conversion performed on your Camaro or purchasing a turn-key conversion from Trans Am Depot, please fill out the customer form below. > The Phoenix conversion will include: > > Exterior > > 1' - 1.5' Lowering Kit w/sway bar handling upgrade > Wheels & Tires > Front: 20x9.5x120 CB-66.9 Gold or Silver Machined Face Snowflake Wheels.

This car is on display at Chris Leith Chevrolet until it is transported to the NC State Fairgrounds for the Raleigh Classic Auto Auction where it will be auctioned off December 4/5th 2009.
We were told the car is 95% complete. Some of the instrumentation and switches are not working, some interior molding, and minor other things have yet to be finished. But overall the vehicle is done quite well with good fit and finish - much better than the Saleen SMS Challenger we took a look at a couple of months ago. The car seems to be the WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN if GM had not trashed Pontiac and the Trans Am had been released along with the 2010 Camaro.
