Projxauto ready to fill orders for the Z/TA appearance package
Auto supplier set to showcase cars at 2011 SEMA Show

After two years of meticulous design, engineering, tooling and numerous vehicle builds, Projxauto has ramped up production on its Z/TA Firebird/Trans Am Appearance Package and will be taking orders at the 2011 SEMA Show.

The iconic styling will instantly take car fans back to the Bandit days of the late 1970s.

For 35 years, General Motors built F-body Camaros and Firebirds. While these pony cars shared the same F-body architecture, they each had individual panels and trim that appealed to the Chevrolet- or Pontiac-minded buyer.

Following the introduction of the fifth-gen Camaro and subsequent demise of Pontiac, the team at Projxauto put their CAD station to work and decided to “bring the excitement back” by devising an interpretation of what a fifth-gen Firebird should look like.

As car fans may have guessed, the Z/TA name is derived in part from the fifth-gen Camaro’s Zeta rear-wheel-drive platform, as well as a play on Z/28, the Trans Am’s (TA) rival for years.

“We wanted an O.E.M. look and feel to the car with simple, modern-day muscle and iconic styling cues that honor the rich heritage of the Firebird,” said Doug Street, who designed the Z/TA package along with Lowell Kiester at Projxauto.

Projxauto will showcase three new Camaros outfitted with a Z/TA Appearance Package at the 2011 SEMA Show. A black convertible and a white coupe will be on hand at the Projxauto booth in Central Hall. However, attendees will likely get their first look at the Z/TA package as they enter the hall when they see the eye-catching Synergy Green Z/TA vehicle in the outdoor gallery.

Unlike some competitors’ models, the Z/TA packages aren’t just one-off show cars. The vehicles at SEMA represent actual production builds.

Thanks to its straightforward installation process, any qualified paint shop will be able to assist buyers in removing their Camaro panels, painting to match the Z/TA panels and easily reinstall every nut, bolt, clip, lamp, wire harness and absorber back to its original specs.

The entire Z/TA package as exhibited at SEMA will retail for $8,500, plus paint and installation cost, a very competitive price for an O.E.-quality body package that totally transforms your Camaro into a modern-day ’Bird.
