    I'm with the majority -- not a fan of that look.

    I like it better without. Doesn't have that racer boy ricey look. Looks more like a sleeper. But I've always prefered muscle cars in a plain wrapper. Probably why I like the Formulas better than the TA's, not as much flash.

    Since when is a TA ricey? Obviously you are entitled to your opinion, but I personally think it looks horrible without it. Some cars look good with spoilers and some don't. In my opinion TAs look awesome with spoilers.

    Since kids started putting wings on little honda's and ruined the idea of a spoiler, now the vision is forever burned into my mind. Anything that sticks up more than a couple inches is ricey to me.
    I much rather prefer the short and smooth look of the rear spoiler on a Formula, or the convertable TA's, but looks pretty damn good without anything in that picture above. Just can't do the racer boy ricey wing myself.

    For the record since I'm ruffling feathers here, I always thought the WS6 hood was overkill too and looks like an afterthought Much rather prefer the Firehawk hood as it blends with the body lines and looks like it belongs.

    Sorry guys. Maybe if I were younger I could dig it.

    lol ya if you were younger then yes, the look of the fourth gen would stand out to you and appeal more to you as well....i agree with the sunfire comment. although most of the pontiacs during that generation look similar. the hood, spoiler, and honey comb taillights caught my eye when i was young. the t/a with its hood, spoiler, and any other "flashy" looks seem to be fine and not overdone. the ricey look usually included "three different types of primer, blue windshield wipers, red rims, spoilers (that were huge off of the deck that did not smooth with the rest of the type model vehicle) ridiculous sounding exhaust much like a weed wacker or a sick lady, and more stickers that account for zero horsepower.....i am sorry my friend but when it comes to the t/a imo i have to respectfully disagree with you on the look of the "ricey T/A"

    Hate would be a strong word. More like overdone. It's an okay looking car, just not my first pic when it comes to 4th gens.
