The Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is a classic design which lasted from 1967 to 2002. It was first designed to compete with the Ford Mustang with engines ranging from a 230ci. to a 400ci., but it was the second generation from 1970 to 1981 which is arguably the most distinctive.

Over this period the design changed slightly with engine offerings from a 231ci. Buick V6 up to a mighty 455ci. Pontiac V8. The design culminated in the late 70s with the fire chicken hood emblem made most famous from the Smokey and the Bandit movie. Just like the late 60s and early 70s golden era of muscle cars, Pontiac carried on the tradition through the 70s of great designs and large displacement engines, which can only be fully appreciated in hindsight.

This video goes into the reasons why the second-generation Pontiac is still such a classic and is arguably one of the finest muscle car designs ever.
