1970 Trans Ams never had callouts on the shaker hood scoop. A lot of people added "RAM AIR" or RAM AIR IV" stickers as they wanted people to know what was under the hood.

The original shaker scoop design was longer and the opening was farther back against the windshield. The engineers had anticipated a 2x4 intake setup on top of a Ram Air V engine as an viable option, but in the end only the RAIII and RAIV would be available with a single 4-barrel Quadrajet, so the scoop design was shortened.

More great pics from Lee, thanks again!

You are welcome Mike - my pleasure

The designer of the 1970 firebird (can't remember his name) said in an interview, that he wished they would have used the Formula Firebird hood on the TA instead of the rear facing scoop because the FF hood worked MUCH better than the TA scoop.
