    nope....the SCCA owns the orginal and current "screaming chicken" designs, however the word "TransAm" is registered to GM.

    You sure about that? I thought Trans Am was owned by the SCCA and GM agreed to pay them $5 per car sold as a lawsuit settlement back in the 60's.
    I could be wrong though.

    Negative. Just got off the phone with GM Liscensing and they told me that T/A is GM's but the birdie is SCCA's and I'd have to contact SCCA to get offical liscensing rights to that logo

    We're obtaining GM liscensing approval for legal/security reasons. The business is going well-not making a living off of it, but we sell alot of the TCS plaques and a custom flag set enough that I would prefer to be safe from big brother.

    In 1969, a $725 optional handling package called the "Trans Am Performance and Appearance Package," which included a rear spoiler, was introduced. Named after the Trans-Am Series, the name was used without permission and the SCCA threatened to sue. But GM settled the deal by paying US$5 to the SCCA for every car sold. --- Another incorrect Wikipedia entry. Sometimes I wonder why I even look at that site anymore, lol.

    black trans am
    2000

    i read some where that in 1969 one of the guys from pontiac was loking for a way to make the firebird set apart from the camaro, so he looked in to scca racing and using ther logo and name trans am, and ther was a deal made wich was if the first someany car pontiac had to pay the scca 15 bucks and if ther was more then what ever it was going to be 5 bucks ... i may have read that looking up the where the ws-6 came from or what year one ment .. wich the owner of year one loved his 1969 trans am loved the life style that came with it thats my 2 cents

    I was not trying to be rude to anyone. I was mocking myself for believing anything I read on wikipedia.

    Jaison, sorry if that came across as being rude to you. It was not intended that way.

    I also thought it was the other way around. GM paying SCCA $5 to use the "Trans Am" name for their car, on every car they sold with the "Trans Am" name. I heard/read this at least 20 years ago.
