    hawks come as trans ams or formulas, the Ta's have the raised wing.. also in 01 and 02 there was an option for an Iroc spoiler for either model that has a large brake light that goes across the whole back of the spoiler... in 00 there was a limited production "Blimpie" spoiler

    LOL "Blimpie" spoiler... those are pretty rare, too. SLP had production problems with them, hence the short run. Their fiberglass mold was extremely complicated for those, and it is generally expected that they will start to pull apart over time along that complex curve.

    so is a 02 with the iroc style wing rare ? I really don't like it. I'd much rather prefer to have the raised wing.

    a firehawk is a ws.6 trans am with some extra options from SLP company. It came with even better suspension than the ws.6, better exhaust, rated @ 345 hp instead of 325, the hoods and rims are the most identifiable aspect of them. Firehawks have a more subtle ram air scoops as well as functional heat-extractors on the rear of the hood. The thin-spoke 17" chrome rims were capped with a unique firehawk center-cap [looks like a metal bird in flight]

    front bumper fog/driving lights.
    t/a's are in the center, formula's on the outside
    also rear spoiler is different. t/a's are raised, formy's are not.
    i believe the iroc spoiler was only available on the 02 t/a's.
    i have the formula version.

    yes it is confusing, i learned recently also... the best way to tell is by looking at the bumper

    examples:
    trans am (ignore ws6 hood. the hood can be misleading, only look at the bumper)
    http://www.diseno-art.com/images/pon...ans_am_ws6.jpg

    firebird or formula (ignoring ws6 hood again). v6 firebirds and formulas are the exact same in appearace, cept the v6s didnt have the ws6 hood option

    mainly note the foglight placements.

    Besides that, look at the obvious. The door. If it is a trans am it will say trans am. If it is a formula it will say it. Unless some tard pulled of the name plate.
