Need clarification

I'm being told from several sources that some GTAs' came with vents in the front fenders as an option. Same as the Formulas.

Re: Need clarification

NOT true.

Read the GTA Authentication tips on this site. A lot of great information that clarifies GTA 'rumors'.

If you spot a GTA with vent extractors you are looking at one of two things: A Fake or a fake!

Re: Need clarification

Negative. All GTAs shared the base Firebird fenders, not the Trans Am's. I have heard of car owners actually swapping them out to get the vents, but that doesn't make the car "right".

If you see a GTA with fender vents, you can be sure it got them after it was built.

Re: Need clarification

Thanks for clarifying what I believed. Just looking for re-assurance I guess.

Re: Need clarification

Yes definitely not true I think the GTA was better and more unique without them.
