Trans Am Valve Covers?

Anyone know of a company that makes valve covers that say Trans Am on them? Anyone got any pics of them on a car?

It's hard finding nice valve covers for centerbolts. I haven't seen any Trans Am valve covers but would like some. Let me know if you find someone that sells centerbolt Trans Am valve covers.

Pontiac put louvered vave covers that said Trans Am , on 82' and 83 Trans Ams. I think they were for promotional use though. I think Mecham might have used them.

I've got them on my '82 Firebird. I bought them on closeout from Summit about twelve years ago. Believe it or not I only paid about $10 for them. I should have bought every set they had at that price but I guess I wasn't thinking. My friend has a set just like them but they say "Camaro". I have never seen another set for sale but I've been told they run at least $200 a set now. I have also heard they they were promotional items from GM but I don't know that for a fact. They get a lot of attention because most people have never even heard of them let alone see a set.

All those members rides (zoners) have asked me to become a member. I dont just add people for the record!. Some are from here and i try to add their thirdgen name when given. The rest are just from people surfing into my site for the last 3 years.

Thanks for the garage comps

These covers are extremely hard to find. This post is one of only a few references or pics that I have found. It was a shot in the dark. Hey you reply so at least it's some sort of visibility for what it's worth.
82 - 83 Valve Covers with trans am logo with fins.
