This modern classic third generation Trans Am is a bargain.

Over the last few years, popularity of the third generation run of the F-Body has seen a surprising spike, but more times than not, it’s the third-gen Camaro that’s getting the spotlight, not the humble Pontiac variant. However, if you look the market on a shorter timeline, you’ll see strong interest in the same year run Pontiac Firebirds, Formulas, and Trans Ams, and for good reason. This 1986 Pontiac Trans Am is a beautiful example of the generation, as well as the modern classic American market that’s largely underestimated.

It comes equipped with the original powertrain, a 305 Chevy Small Block engine. The SBC sits in a well-maintained engine bay, and is backed by a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive for comfortable highway cruising.

Overall, this Trans Am is highly original, and represents what collectors are out there searching for in the 3rd-gen F-Body market - a market that is largely crowded with engine swaps and heavily modified cars with years of abuse on the clock - not to mention, there's only 27,800 miles on the 'Bird. It’s a new arrival at Vintage Planet priced right at $13,500, so don’t expect it to last very long!

The Future of Camaro, Mustang, and Challenger: What We Know .
First the SUVs came for our sedans. Now they’re going after our sport coupes. Two-door American coupes and convertibles with virtually unusable rear seats, usually referred to as pony cars or muscle cars and considered sports cars by some, have long been a hard sell in the U.S. market. Now with the Detroit Three offering SUVs like the Chevrolet Blazer RS, Ford Edge ST, and even the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, the future of this segment is in grave doubt. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.
