2011 Pontiac "6T9 Goat" by Trans Am Depot

A little over a year ago at the 2009 SEMA show, Trans Am Depot introduced a conversion kit for the Chevrolet Camaro , affectionately turning it from modern-day Bumblebee muscle to an iteration of what a Pontiac Firebird would look like. They even had a name for it: the Phoenix Trans Am .

Fast forward about 20 months and Trans Am Depot has returned for their next Camaro-based Pontiac conversion kit. The car of choice this time is the 1969 GTO Judge , although you certainly wouldn’t mistake this one for the real deal.

In any case, Trans Am Depot’s work is called the “6T9 Goat” and looking at the renderings sent over by TAD, the new conversion kit comes with plenty of styling elements, including a bespoke front end with its own split grille.
There’s also a revised hood with air scoops, a new tail lamp, a restyled ‘old-school’ trunk with a small rear wing, quad tail pipes, and a new set of alloy wheels.

“The 6T9 Goat concept was created by designer Kevin Morgan to capture the look and feel of the classic ’69 GTO Judge,” Grand Am Depot said in a statement. “The 1969 GTO is considered by many to be one of the top ten muscle cars of all time. Available this fall, this modern day version incorporates the look of yesteryear with the modern convenience and technology of today.”

Hardened fans of the classic GTO Judge – and the Camaro, for that matter – will probably snicker at the thought of driving a kit version of the old classic, but as the market has shown in recent years, there are some people that will still pay for conversion kits, even if it isn’t the real thing. If you’re one of these folks, here’s your chance to own a modern-day iteration of an all-time classic. Just make sure you don’t promote it as an original.

It looks like they’re having too much muscle for this car. For the front view, I think it’s much broader than its platform.

It’s tougher being a muscle car. For me, the Chevrolet Camaro is still the best example of a muscle car. It doesn’t look so broad, just perfect on its size.

Trans Am Depot’s tuning was only beautifully effective on their paint job.

As far as I know, everyone has loved its figure per se. The only thing that its appeal seems to depend on is the paint job.

It has a distinct built, yes, but I think that the color it sports will be more attention-catching.

Most of the cars are preferred to have a different style of coloring; this muscle car will catch someone’s attention by its unique color. Anyway, I can’t see the relation of its name to its look. Isn’t it quite strange?

I like this car except its bumper, because it is too large, so it makes it appear disproportional. I think if it’s painted with black or red, it will become more fascinating.

Smoking hot! Very fiery looking with the glossy orange finish, but I think chrome wheels suits this car far better than the one they used here.

That’s quite an interesting trivia Angelsilhouette! Well, I really don’t think that Pontiac is a best option for muscle car, but I can see that their car is quite reliable.

This "6T9 Goat" is really a head turner, though I have to agree that the body paint that it had been really irritable! Anyway, I wonder if what will be the interior of this looks like.

I don’t like the color its so annoying, I’ll rather want to see white or red version of this one. Though the exterior part of the car certainly interesting.

Yeah, its kind of a great thing that the styling was improved. This is really best example of Trans Amcar. I wonder on what was the speed performance of this car?

I’m not really into old cars but it makes me wonder on why the possible dealer of this production wants to drive this vintage car. I was expecting for a higher speed performance since it was based from the Chevy Camaro.

The good thing about the vintage car is they never fades over the year. I was shocked to learn that even the old school conversion kit still have a market! Well, it seems there’s no reason for the Pontiac to killed its production for this car.

I really like Pontiac cars. Their designs are impressive and cool. The designers of Pontiac are absolutely brilliant on making this one. Even though, the orange color is some kind of lame, the car still looks aggressive.

Yeah! The orange color doesn’t fit in this car and especially for a muscle car. I would love to see a racing stripes in this car to make it more aggressive!

Well, then what’s the similarities of Goat and GTO? I really don’t think that the design of this car is kind of fabulous just like the Camaro. And I wonder on what’s the figure performance of this car.

Well, I think that the “Goat” name is rather good here too. It sort of hides the real performance capabilities of the car under a rather cheeky name.
