In 1979, Pontiac celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Trans Am by creating a truly special edition based on their second-generation design. It was painted silver and a two-tone charcoal, which was complemented by red, silver, and charcoal stripes. On the hood, the biggest bird ever to be fitted to a T/A was included. So large was the bird that the wingtips were a separate decal fitted to the fenders. A new “turbine” smooth, brightly polished dished aluminum wheel was specific to the anniversary edition, as were new Firebird decals placed on the B-pillars replacing the metal emblems affixed to standard Trans Ams.
The interior was treated to more luxury and thought than any previous Trans Am. The color scheme from the exterior was naturally applied to the interior. Most items were finished in a light grey/silver hue, including the steering wheel. A new seat was designed and covered in silver leather with some vinyl accents. When Pontiac designers were insistent about producing an embroidered bird with six different colors, a special machine was imported from France to do the sewing. Even though few (if any) Trans Am buyers were worried about road and engine noise, the anniversary model has specially designed carpets to reduce these sounds. Options included (and most were fitted) with mirrored T-tops, power windows, power door locks, a remote trunk opener.
