Default Noooo! They ruined it!!

They turned a great muscle car into a ricer on the outside. 45* lambos, giant goofy wing on top of the spoiler!?!, nasty white and red paint flames and interior to match!! why would someone do this to a bird :(

It would be better without the wing, better rims, and paint the back half white.

If you wanted to look patriotic, keep the red flames going on white then white flames going on blue on the rear of the car . That might look different.

I looked, and walked away. I see this so often where my car got painted. People go to shows and just try to put everything and anything on a car. It can't be helped with a do this or do that. Rip it all out, sand it down, and start over. The guy'* got to be a drug dealer, Eh?. Nobody with his grasp of the English language could possibly able to pay to do all the absurdness. Put down the pipe man and look at the hodgepodge mess you made of a great car.

Why would you pay 50000 to do that to a trans am? Why not buy a Mercedes or a Range Rover like all the other drug dealers?

I would love to have a TA with that much power, hate the paint, I can deal with the doors, a bit showy, the wing is OK, and a good paint job would help that blend in better, the red they used is totally wrong for that car. I feel a TA needs to be a dark color, not a bright color. I'm not liking the wheels, they just don't look right on the body style. Need to look more aggressive.

I don't mind that wing. They are actually the most popular one for the TA, and it'* functional with some slight engine mods. The paint and wheels are horrible. I don't mind Lambo doors to be honest.
