Maybe it’s just us, but it seemed the Trans Am’s front spoiler fit more consistently earlier in the Second-Gen production run because it was a piece separate from the valance. By ’76, the spoiler became part of a much larger molded-plastic component. Gaps between the spoiler and its corresponding front wheel flares were quite common, and Pontiac developed a small support brace that connected the three in an attempt to maintain alignment of the entire aerodynamic-add-on assembly. Trimmed with gold striping, the stripe doesn’t extend onto the support brace, but we also see the stripe isn’t in perfect alignment. Sharp eyes may notice the lack of paint coverage on the lower fender where it wraps beneath the car.
