     Here I have tried to give a kind of photo History of the Firebird Trans Am from 1967 to 1981. I will try to highlight some of the major changes to the cars as the years progress. This way, by looking at these pages and maybe some of the other pages on my site, you will be able to see a Trans Am on the street and have a good guess as to which year car it is.

1968

 

1969


First Year for the Trans Am. Last Year for a Convertible.

They changed in 1977 to the "batmobile" front end, but tail lights stayed the same.
