    v6/formy/convert,


    t/a,


    slp 'lumpy',


    slp 'LED light bar',


    2003 trans am retro spoiler,


    mecham 'whale tail'


    mecham 'aero'


    mecham v6/formy/convert extention





    there might be more custom ones people have made but these are the basic legit ones the 2003 is not produced unfortunatly, also worth mentioning is the 'commando bolt on, (looks retarded, availiable in forza 3) and the west wings v6 bolt on
    (equally retarded)

    I think the tall wing originally came on the Trans am "gt" cars or something like that. Yes, t/a's came with the short wing if you didn't order that option

    Blue 1997 Trans Am(Sold)
    Pewter 2001 Trans Am Vert

    one correction to add to the list

    the form. and v6 spoilers are similar but not exactly the same as the vert spoiler


    the vert spoiler is wider and has overhang on the sides.

    Its wider to allow for the 'vert's hinge/strut attach points to fit up inside spoiler. Just another reason 'verts never got an "uplift" spoiler.

    navy blue met
    1998 Trans Am convertible

    i beleive Trans am GT came out in 94, 93 T/As had the high spoiler, so i dont think it was optional. I know that some 94s had the low spoiler, but hadnt heard of any 95s with it

    any year the t/a gt was availible, the high rise spoiler was optional, not sure if t/a gt existed in 95 or not

    I've been following this thread for the same reason.......

    My records are indicating that the T/A GT was available only in 1994. I believe it was replaced (renamed?) w/ the Comp T/A in '95-'97.

    I use to have the Mecham Aero Tail on my Arctic White '98 WS6 T/A. It took some time getting use to such a large wing. I think I'm going to just keep my factory "up" spoiler for now, but I'm like you, if they started producing the '03 Retro.......I would be tempted in a major way! Reminds me of the spoiler that came from the factory on the '73 Z-28 Camaro's....
