1978 Firebird Trans Am Kammback

ImageThis interesting car was a concept car built by PMD (Pontiac Motor Division). It was labeled as the "K" car for Kammback. The car never saw production but two models were specially constructed in Italy for GM's Design vice president David Holls. The concept was to put out a Firebird station wagon that would provide a performance car to the public. The write-up that is the fifth picture gives a good description of the origin of the car. A silver wagon and gold wagon were built (total of two) and were 100% factory original as they appear below. The gold wagon has been destroyed reportedly due to internal company issues.

From stationwagon.com: "The 10/1/98 issue of Old Cars magazine has a short article (pages 23-24) on an experimental 1978 Pontiac Firebird 'shooting brake' station wagon. Constructed for GM by Pininfarina, they were dropped from production plans because of their projected $24-25,000 price tags (in 1978 dollars). There were evidently two running versions constructed - one Firebird, and one Trans Am. It's doesn't look like they had a tailgate, but had two 'gullwing' doors that gave access to the rear cargo area. The Firebird was crushed by GM, but the Trans Am survived to be upgraded to 1979 specs and taken on the show circuit again.
