Lost Knight wrote:Firebird is the general name for the car. It came in three main versions: the ordinary Firebird, Formula and Trans Am. Each is a step up above the other. Occasionally every few years, the Firehawk version was released which was the most powerful in terms of performance. K.I.T.T. was the Trans Am version of the car.

In addition to the S/E (which existed as a 2nd gen as well), there was also the Espirit in the early 70s, the GTA in the late 80s, the "Macho" or Mecham (sp?) T/A in the 70s and 80s (not a factory model, however), the Turbo T/A was also available in the 70s and 80s and one of my favorites, the Firebird 400 in the 60s. The Firehawk was produced (I beleive) from 92 on as a special factory order.
You also have little sub-orders based on option grouping such as the 1LE (very rare third gen model), and the WS-6 (there was also the WS-7, which was the same as the WS-6 in the 80s but didn't come with the 4-wheel disk brake option, and the factory code for a basic T/A is WS-4).
Edit: Pictures are always better! Here are some pics I was able to dig up real quick on google. Enjoy!

I hope they bring back the more KITT-ish look of the formula for the rumored 2007 Trans Ams (which I don't think they really ARE going to bring back the Trans Am though, the way it looks).

my 1995 TA says otherwise
