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.

I was thinking about Trans Am valve covers too. Actually, I am going to make "Vortec" ones once i get my heads bolted on.

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.

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.
