Can you remove the Trans Am spoilers?

Hey all, just a simple yes/no question. I really like the looks of the LS1 Trans Am's, but I'm not a huge fan of the wing. I really love the front 2/3 of the car though. Can the spoiler be removed?

I believe it is part of the hatch, so no.

Yes, it unbolts. There are not too many replacement ones though. The Firebird with the lower wings are built into the hatch. You can swap the hatch.

If you wanted the base Firebird one, just make a post stating you want to trade your high rise TA spoiler hatch for a regualr firebird hatch. So many people will respond you'll probably find someone that has the same color car as well, then no painting will be necessary.

I know of a black T/A locally that got rid of the spoiler. It's different for sure. It doesn't look too bad, but I'd rather just keep the T/A spoiler there.

You must have. lol

I've just recently moved down to Ft Worth, but WF will always be my home and WF is where the wingless T/A is.
