The Model - When given the go-ahead to create the 25th Anniversary edition for the Trans Am, Jack Folden and his team started with a clean sheet. Using the newly released 4th-generation Firebird as the basis, it was decided from the start to use the original Cameo White and dark blue stripes as used in 1969, but with the single stripe as seen on the 1970 edition. Their goal was to create a distinctive design to commemorate the model without "over badging" it, and at the same time, show-off the body design of the then new body design. These cars received all the performance appointments of every Trans Am, from the LT1 V8's to the 155 MPH speedometer, a Delco 2001 stereo system, ergonomically designed instrument and control panels, and for the 25th Anniversary model, specially embroidered seats and décor. Starting with the Trans Am GT as the base, the anniversary package added another $995, on top of which the buyer could upgrade to an automatic transmission for $775, and T-tops for $895. Average delivery price for one of these beauties was $31,500, just a bit shy of a basic Corvette coupe!
The Car - This exquisite example of Pontiac excitement, 1990's style, has been pampered since the day it was delivered new. Its gleaming white paint and bold blue stripes make a strong impact on all who see it. Looking inside the interior is bright and clean with those exclusive embroidered white leather bucket seats and matching door panels looking fresh while it appears no one has ever used the back seats! Equipped with factory air-conditioning, power everything and the six-speaker Delco stereo system, there is want for nothing with this coupe. On those white five-spoke wheels, offered only on the Anniversary edition, are the factory tires preserved and ready for the road, while under the hood is detailed with the original stickers and decals all in place. Used very sparingly only to exercise this car on occasion, this is the type of vehicle that will be sought after for historical preservation awards as well as acting as a "pattern" car for restorers wanting to try and replicate the original condition of this Anniversary Trans Am. They are original only once, and even then, being well preserved is the biggest bonus one could wish for.
