THE NATIONAL FIREBIRD and TRANS
The National Firebird and Trans Am Club was founded
in 1984 in Chicago as the National Firebird Club (NFC) at the Burwood Tavern
in Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois. The member magazine was initially
printed using a copier. This was changed in to using Whitfield-Liberty
Press in Glenview in 1985.
In 1996, we
changed printers to Newsweb in Chicago and began publishing the member
magazine, the Eagle with color on 8 pages. In 1996, the name was
changed to the National Firebird and Trans Am Club to better reflect that we
were a club for all models of Pontiac Firebirds.
In 2009, we
changed printers to Leesburg Printing in Florida with the printer doing the
mailing. In 2010, we began publishing the member magazine 4 times per year
instead of the previous 7 magazines every 2 years. In 2012 we changed
printers to Johnson Press in Pontiac, Illinois with 16 pages of color and
the magazine being mailed in poly wrap to better protect it during mailing.
In 2016, we changed to full color printing with the August 2016 issue and
cancelled the long time post office box address that was used since the
beginning of the club.
Firebird and Trans Am Club now serves the interests of Firebird, Trans Am and Formula
owners throughout North America. The NFTAC offers, magazines, emagazines,
technical advice, member recommendations on service, body and parts sources,
registration of your Firebird or Trans Am, a tradition of service and FREE
