    Last I heard the Trans Am was dead for good. I read in GMHTP a while back the Pontiac was wanting to change their image to the BMW of American cars so-to-speak, some job they have done with the GTO and the G6, two great ways to change your image, lol. I just hope that when the Camaro comes back in 07' (according to gminsidenews.com) it is not some half-ass car that GM threw together to have a "contender" in the poney car market. Nor that it is some FWD V8 car like the Impala, just my $.02.--Tony

    General Motors said the name Formula and T/a are dead and will never be back. THere is also a chance of never being able to use the Camaro name. But there is a fair chance for a Camaro, but not a chance in hell of a T/A or Formula. Sorry.

    But GM in their infinite wisdom is concentrating on SUV's - so all the performance nuts in USA can go buy a nice speedy, canyon carving POS

    If someone GAVE me a GTO - I'd sell it and use the $$ toward a nice new 6 Series BMW

    I hope they don't overprice the new Camaro like the GTO... it's supposed to be an AFFORDABLE sports car...

    Ditto, although I heard that 2008 will bring a total re-design due to people saying it was "under styled"

    That retro T/A was only for show and only one was made. It is not a prototype, sorry to burst your bubble.
