That also contributes to this t top so-called Targa roof, which is intended to protect the heads of the occupants from serious injuries in the event of a rollover and still offers an airy driving experience. The front, with its square headlights, is typical of American car models of the time. The only exterior modification concerns the 15-inch wheels that pass through 17 inch from Cragar were replaced. the wheel size is 255/30 R17 all round, giving the Trans-Am a stocky and sporty look.
