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 tenth and standard Trans Am's, a new "turbine" smooth brightly polished dished aluminum wheel was specific to the anniversary edition. Finishing the package was a pair of overly large Firebird decals affixed to the B-pillars (A smaller Firebird decal replaced the bright metal emblem on all other Trans Ams).
