    whats the difference between a 99 formula and a 99 TA

    I just recently bought a 1999 Trans Am. but according to the title and the vin its a firebird formula. it says trans am all over the car and it has the 4 barrel hood. I was just curious as to what the difference was. thanks.

    Yep, the vin comes up as a formula..(mine does too), because it has the formula package.. but then then add onto it to make it a Trans Am.

    Take a look at the front bumper, the formula does not have the fog lights mounted up close to the licence plate opening

    I have a 99 TA too and it will always say that on the VIN because they have the same engine. The only differences are exterior...like the other fellow said, the front clip has the foglights and air holes, the rear bumper hugs around the exhaust, and finally, the formula does not have a full spoiler like the TA. Hope this helps solve the mystery a little. Aesthetically, I like the TA better

    The front bumber is different and so is the rear spoiler, but the formula is lighter than the T/A which= a bit faster!
