In March of 1969, Pontiac released a little publicized option package, the Trans Am Performance and Appearance Package. Only two ads were published, one in Road and Track and another in Motor Trend. The Trans Am was conceived to campaign in the SCCA’s road racing series. Pontiac paid a $5 license fee to SCCA for each T/A sold. This fee continued to be paid through 2002 models.
