Question * * Trans Am Question? * *

I have a friend who is restoring a 1987 Trans Am. The question is the car appears to have had a "screemin chicken" on the hood. My question is how do we know what the proper color of the decal was? The car is bright red and the other decals are so worn all we can tell is they used to be either silver or charcoal. Is there a code on the option label that will answer this?

Joe, I think the only code that will show on the SPI label is DX1, which is the code for the hood bird decal.

All bright red cars I've seen from that eras featured the silver decals; I think as a rule that the charcoal decals were used on lighter colored cars for the most part.
