Nostalgia is popular these days and the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is one of the best muscle cars of the smoking-tire era.
By the time the 1976 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am hit the market, Trans Am's had found their niche. Despite ever-higher prices, output rose again as Pontiac sold one Trans Am for every three Firebirds -- even starting at USD4740 with a standard 185 horsepower 400-cid V-8.
Both the Firebird's body and its interior earned some attention for 1976. Reshaping of the "shovel-nose" Endura front end gave it a more aerodynamic look, accented by integral body-color bumpers (at both front and rear). Taillamps also were modified. Engineers made fewer changes, leaving things well enough alone.
Trans Ams carried a standard 185 horsepower 400-cid V-8, as they had in 1975. Except in California, where the big 455 V-8 remained available, again rated at 200 horsepower. Trans Ams continued to display their immense Firebird emblem, sometimes derided as the "screaming chicken."
