Outrageous Body Mods: Pontiac Trans-AM WS-6 Station Wagon?!

I lol'd:

Quote:
This is too much, I don't mind seeing Chrysler 300C's turned into Bentley's or even Fiero Ferraris, but a perfectly good WS-6 turned into a station wagon? Criminal.

After all these years of getting away from the wood-paneled people haulers, we are now faced with this abomination which not surprisingly failed to sell at auction (there was a single offer for $7,500).

So what do you think? I saw this was now posted on a few other blogs and people actually called it “beautiful”, “masterful”, “well done”. The only words I could think of were “no”, ”no”, ”no!” and “please God, please, no!”

Seen a few pics like this one...

Always thought it was kinda cool in a muscle wagon/grocery getter kinda way.

Re: Outrageous Body Mods: Pontiac Trans-AM WS-6 Station Wagon?!

It looks like it WAS a nice car and the person did do a nice job with it, but not for me.

Re: Outrageous Body Mods: Pontiac Trans-AM WS-6 Station Wagon?!

C'mon...it's ONLY a replacement hatch. Nothing else on the car was modified. Ponitac has toyed with this idea for over 30 years. It's called a Kamback, and yes there were 2nd and 3rd gen versions.

I'm planning on building the hatch in the future if I can ever get some spare time or finish the many projects that I have on hand.

There was even a 2nd gen Kammback. And ALL were built by GM, not home-made, not aftermarket.

Re: Outrageous Body Mods: Pontiac Trans-AM WS-6 Station Wagon?!

I can honestly say its clean and looks much better than I thought it would as I was reading the quote. Is it for me? possibly, would I pay extra for it? not if it was outrageously priced.

On the 3rd gen, it opened just like the stock hatch, like 3th gen in the eBay auction.

On the 2nd gen only the 2 side windows opened, as in the pic. Not a hatch at all. Basically a station wagon that opened on the sides.

Re: Outrageous Body Mods: Pontiac Trans-AM WS-6 Station Wagon?!

I'm not a huge fan of the Hurst 4th gen Kammback. I think the 3rd gen Kammback looks awesome. If they would of used a hatch more inspired by the Taurus wagon, the 4th gen would look awesome. The one Hurst hatch is too "3rd gen" for the curvaceous WS6 Trans Am...

It wouldn't look so off if the back wasn't so squared. It just doesn't flow right.

If you are looking for a wagon sports car just go with the Dodge Magnum.

That's the Hurst Hauler, it was a one-off concept if I remember correctly. Google "hurst hauler" to find more pictures/info.

Re: Outrageous Body Mods: Pontiac Trans-AM WS-6 Station Wagon?!

I kind of like it. If you can simply swap out the hatches back and forth why not?
Gives you a dual purpose and think of SUBS you could slam in there, JackHammers any one?

Because, IIRC, it was a car built by Year One for the Hot Rod Power Tour.

Does anyone know where I can get one for my '85 T/A???

This may mean not having to give up one of my sports cars for a station wagon when the kid is born!
If you've got ANY info on an aftermarket K-hatch please let me know!
