AutoBlog: SEMA 2009: Breaker, breaker, we got ourselves a Bandit

Kevin Morgan Phoenix Trans Am Concept 2 - Click above for high-res image gallery

Last year in Las Vegas, graphic designer Kevin Morgan showed off the first Trans Am rebody of the new Camaro at SEMA 2008. This year he is back with T/A version 2.0 for SEMA 2009. While the original "Phoenix" T/A 1.0 had the Bandit color combo we know and love, a few of the details were off in making it a true '77-'78 Trans Am redo.

For this year's show he's rectified that situation with a new quad-headlight front fascia and a few other changes that bring it more in line with the uber Firebirds we remember from our misspent youths. Slip into one of these black and gold Trans Ams and before you know it you'll be East Bound and Down, calling for the Snowman on your CB to help you stay one step ahead of Smokey. Built in conjunction with fabricator Todd Otto, one-off versions can be ordered to spec, and a kit version will also be made available through Trans Am Depot starting in early 2010.

Buy a Camaro.

By the conversion for this.

Brand new Pontiac.

Quit yer bitchin' :P

As far as I'm concerned, their leaving the general shape of the Camaro's nose is what makes this work so well compaired to the other one. Not sure about the back, since its hard to see. I would just ditch the spoiler and the silly decals/gold wheels.

Ah, yeah... a $60K Pontiac... and you folks think its unreasonable to think some Pontiac people will move to BMW. ;-)

Trouble is... I rather have a RWD Bonneville or GTO. Don't see anyone coming up with a conversion for them... or anything available in the US that would be easily converted.
