To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Trans Am, Pontiac created a truly special edition. The 10th was painted in a gorgeous silver and charcoal two tone, accented by red-silver-charcoal stripes. Silver dominated the base of the car, with the charcoal covering the roof, most of the 1979 hood, a small portion of the door beltline, and bumper accents. On the hood, the biggest bird to be fitted to a T/A was included. So large was the bird, each wing tips were a separate decal fitted to the fenders. The hood bird and Trans Am/engine decals followed the general theme of the car being finished in multiple hues of silver/charcoal, red, and black. To aid in the visual distinction between the 10th Anniversary and standard Trans Am's, a new "turbine" smooth brightly polished dished aluminum wheel was specific to the anniversary edition.
The interior fitted to the tenth anniversary 'birds were perhaps the most lavish of all Trans Ams. The entire interior was finished in a light gray/silver hue, including the steering wheel and 1981 horn button (The spokes were still matte black). Silver leather (with vinyl seatbacks & bolsters) covered the specificly styled front and rear seats, although they still lacked a reclining mechanism. It should be noted that the six-color embroidered bird had a special machine imported from France to produce the emblem. Thicker carpeting was laid on the floor and additional sound deadening muted the mechanical sounds we bought Trans Ams for.
