Default Last T/A production date?

I was wondering if anyone knows when they quit making the T/As....Mine was made in 08/2002...I thought that was fairly late in the year to be making 02s....I didnt know how long they made them into the year and was just curious. Maybe they made them later since it was the last year for them or is this normal?

There are pics floating around the net of the last Camaro coming down the assembly line, and photo ops with all the employees. If you look right behind the Camaro, there's the last Firebird

Correct. The last TA built was indeed a red convertible 6 speed. Base model, no WS6. Here are some pics. Even has the steering wheel still wrapped up and the radio tag still in place.
