2002 Pontiac Trans Am
"THE LAST TRANS AM"

2002 PONTIAC TRANS AM - THIS WAS THE LAST ONE!
I came across this drop-dead gorgeous '02 Trans Am at the Good Guys Show in Pleasanton CA on March 19, 2016. The owner was close by and as we talked about the car, I mentioned that it must have been one of the last Trans Ams ever built, since '02 was the last year for the Firebird and the Camaro. She told me that it was THE last one made, as verified by the Pontiac Historical Society. Wow! What can you say to that?! Nothin'... Just adore the car! And what's not to like? This bright red beauty was in near-showroom condition and well-optioned.

A WORK IN PROGRESS
In our efforts to complete our online index, and make this the world's greatest website about American Muscle Cars, we're building pages as fast as we can. The first thing we add are the pictures. Then come the specs, and then the history. So, if you see a page that just has only pictures on it, please check back in a few weeks to see if we have it done. Thanks for your patience. And thanks for visiting /American-Muscle-Cars.net. Please tell your friends about us.
