1977 Pontiac Trans Am Coupe Reserved Parking Only Sign
1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Coupe Aluminum Parking Sign
Produced by Pontiac, the Trans Am was manufactured from the 1969 to the 2002 model years. The Trans Am was a specialty package for the Firebird, typically upgrading handling, suspension, and horsepower, as well as minor appearance modifications such as exclusive hoods, spoilers, fog lights and wheels. In using the name Trans Am, a registered trademark belonging to the SCCA. Four distinct generations were produced between 1969 and 2002. Despite its name, the Trans Am was not initially used in the Trans Am Series, as its smallest engine exceeded the SCCA's five liter displacement limit. The second generation was available from 1970 to 1981. Probably the most famous of all was the 1977 model that was featured in the action comedy movie "Smokey and the Bandit" starring Burt Reynolds and Sally Field. Hal Needham, the director, saw an advertisement for the soon-to-be-released 1977 Pontiac Trans Am and knew right away that would be the Bandit's car, or–as Needham referred to it–a character in the movie. He contacted Pontiac and an agreement was made that four 1977 Trans Ams would be provided for the movie. The Trans Ams were actually 1976 model cars with '77 front ends. (In 1976, both the Firebird/Trans Am had two round headlights, and the '77 Firebird/Trans Am was changed to four square headlights.) The decals were also changed to 1977-style units, as evidenced by the engine size callouts on the hood scoop being in liters rather than cubic inches as had been the case in 1976. The hood scoop on these cars says "6.6 LITRE", which in 1977 would have denoted an Oldsmobile 403-equipped car or a non W-72, 180 hp version of the 400 Pontiac engine. All four of the cars were badly damaged during production, one of which was all but destroyed during the jump over the dismantled bridge. The Trans Am used for the dismantled bridge jump was equipped with a booster rocket. By the movie's ending, the final surviving Trans Am was barely running and the other cars had become parts donors to keep it running.
