Disappointed in the cancellation of the famous Pontiac Firebird Trans Am? Still angry about the demise of the entire Pontiac brand? Now you don’t have to be: Instead, you can buy this 2011 Chevy Camaro that was transformed into a modern Trans Am for the 2010 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Here’s the backstory: As many of you know, the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas is where the entire automotive tuning market gets together to show off some of the most ridiculous customized vehicles in the world. In simpler terms: If you like rimz, you like SEMA.
This particular car was built for the show by Michigan-based Heide Performance Products (HPP), which decided to imagine what a modern Pontiac Firebird Trans Am would look like — as if Pontiac hadn’t gone out of business in 2009. This custom-built, white and blue Camaro-based coupe is the result, and it’s traveled less than 750 miles since leaving HPP’s shop. Now, it’s for sale at Lexus of Westminster in Westminster, California, for just under $60,000.
Is it worth it? Well, HPP spared no expense in making this car, going so far as to add Pontiac logos to a wide range of interior surfaces (many of which, it should be noted, are bright blue), and it would surely cost you thousands more to build this car than to buy it in its current state. But $60,000 is still a lot of money for a 6-year-old Camaro-turned-Firebird — so you’d better be a really big Pontiac fan to make the purchase. We suspect such a fan is out there somewhere.
