    Probably depends on the state's abbreviations - mine only lists the VIN, D/L#, plate#, etc and just says 01 CHEV on it. Florida tags are based on weight listed in their database. Been insured in two different states and both ID cards stated Camaro Z28/SS though.

    Registrations are based on the Vin# and the Vin does not distinguish between Formula or Trans Am. It merely identifies the car as a V8 Firebird.
    Check this sticky WS9 vs WS6 for more info on model identification

    might want to tell them about that- in the event of an accident, i think the T/A is worth about 5 g's more lol...
