    Anniversary Trans Ams

    Ok i have a question werent the Chevy Camaro & Pontiac Firebird both made in 1967? I ask because im kinda confused,why is it that the Chevy Camaros have a 30th Anniversary car in 1997 but the Firebirds dont(i may be wrong) Its crazy because the 1999 Firebird is called the 30th Anniversary but wouldnt that make it a 32nd Anniversary car & are the CETA cars labled as a 35th Anniversary or thats just some Camaro lingo?

    2002-WS6

    although the firbird came out in 67 the Trans/Am didnt come out till 69, i wondered about that myself and an old gentlemam with a couple of GMMG camaro's explained it to me.i think thats also why the T/A's have collectors editions in 02 instead of anniversary editions.

    correct. the white and blue 1999 commemorates 30 years of Trans Ams, the yellow and black 2002, 35 years of Firebirds.

    Yellow and black was for the Collectors Edition Trans Am's? I thought it was only b/c it was being discontinued, but it's also tied to 35th anv?

    2002 - 1967 = 35 years.

    35th anniversary edition is not really an 'official' name of the CETA, but to a guy who knows what they are will know what you are talking about.

    the origin of the '35th' name can also be tied to the red, black and white '35th Anniversary Camaro' which often gets it's name and commemoration tied with the yellow and black Trans Am
