    If you saw any it was most likely that they took a Formula and changed out T/A parts

    Yes www.transamworld.com When you get there choose 4th gen history and it will have production figures. They don't breakdown production into t-tops and non t-tops for every year but they did for 98.

    These 2 cars were likely the early production Magazine test cars as a White hardtop Trans Am graced the cover of Car & Driver back then. This car also had cloth interior, which makes it minus 2 options that were standard on the regular production T/A's.



    Also of note is the 2 Formula Droptops, as the convertible roof was discontinued on the Formula model starting with the `98 model year.
    BTW both those Formies were Red WS6's aswell 1 A4 and 1 M6.
