For whatever reason, automotive enthusiasts love a wagon. Cram a V8 engine under the hood and pair to a manual gearbox, though, and you have something from a car guy’s daydream.
If we’ve described anything that appeals to you, Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale has one machine that ticks each box. The 1985 Pontiac Trans Am Kammback concept comes swinging from the hairspray era with a 5.0-liter V8 engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a notched off rear-end to make it a true wagon.
General Motors commissioned the Firebird Trans Am Kammback following the Camaro Kammback concept and Pontiac Trans Am Type K after requesting a successor to the Chevrolet Nomad of yesteryear. Unfortunately, even the highly-regarded Trans Am name couldn’t usher in a performance wagon for the era.
But, you can own this one. It may be just the thing if you think a CTS-V wagon is a tad too mainstream these days.
