1994 Pontiac Trans Am 25th Anniversary
A beloved symbol of 1970s car culture. An icon of disco era design.
A redneck's red-letter regalia. It's gaudy. Garish. Tacky. Even
vulgar. And we love it. This is the story of Pontiac's Screaming
Chicken, the largest and most recognizable decal in automotive
history. Lost to time is the name of the man that first referred to
the graphic as a "Screaming Chicken." The nickname came quickly. By
the late 1970s, even Car and Driver was using the label. No doubt
derogatory, over time the epithet has become one of endearment,
although the brand's hardest purists still hate it. That bunch
landed on "hood bird" four decades ago and refused to budge. Others
go with "Rising Phoenix" or simply "Firebird." The ignorant usually
refer to the massive flaming fowl as an Eagle or a Hawk.
This rounded off, simplified design year version of the iconic
Firebird right out of 1994 flies into our halls with 1 owner
status, and 37,071 actual miles. Always well cared for, and never
beaten...it is showing some age but it's graceful!
Bright White basecoat and clearcoat adorn the straight panels of
this car. Virtually no chrome and all composite bumpers and front
and rear parts come together to form this aerodynamic and slightly
lighter car than the Trans Am version. The lines of this car blend
seamlessly to form the final shape, all smooth and aerodynamic. All
white with blue decal center stripe, and the "screaming chicken" on
the nose in the middle of hidden headlight smoothness. A rakish
front glass framed in black trimmings and the continuation of the
blue stripe on the roof is seen as we work our way to the back of
the car. A nice large curved greenhouse rear glass melts into a
rear spoiler which is nicely rounded to match the curvature of the
glass. This frames the rear of the car as well, and just above
another composite bumper is an elongated oval of taillight and
black plastic with center badging. Tailpipes are peeking out of the
rear roll pan and look as though they have been molded into the
body. White 5 spoke wheels are on all 4 corners.
Pristine sculpted door panels appear as though they were shaped by
the wind. Utilizing white inserts and black molded plastic to form
the integrated armrest/door pull/power toggle housing and the
speaker, all with the 25th Trans Am badge in the white field.
Slipping inside, beautifully sculpted white leather buckets keep
the wind-swept forming scheme, and these have black tubs they fit
within. 2 more of these beautiful buckets are in the back and
separated by the hump. Racing forward is a center console which has
a glovebox, shift lever and cup holder. As the dash rises temp
controls and an AM/FM/Cassette w equalizer is neatly mounted into
this central space. A trio of round vents are near the center of
the dash top. More windswept sculpting for the instrument cluster
which has a beautifully curved arch with analog gauges in the
cluster. Charcoal carpeting floods the floors and is very clean, as
is the headliner. Lest I forget, more embroidery for the headrests
noting the 25th Trans Am. Underneath that rear greenhouse glass is
a charcoal felted trunk tub and a flat upper storage area.
A 5.7 liter LT1 V8, which is rated at 275 horses is under the hood.
There is a slight overall patina and some light corrosion on cast
aluminum parts. EFI and a 4L60E 4-speed automatic is strapped to
the back of this original mill. Way back is a 10-bolt 2.73 posi
Lots of patina, a peppering of surface rust and very clean floor
pans and toe kicks. Independent coil spring suspension for the
front, and Torque arm with coil springs for the rear. Power disc
brakes are all around.
A quick starter, smooth driver and some nice power. Overall a good
condition for a fairly low mileage used car. All in working
Right out of 1994, this white and blue striped bird is ready to
have its key turned and driven away for more fun. Look at it as
your mini "screaming chicken "Firebird lighting the tires up.
