Burt Reynolds ripping across the American South with Sallie Field in the passenger seat of black ’77 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am, the banter, the hapless sheriff… Who doesn’t love “Smokey and the Bandit?”
Some of you may have gone from Firebird posters on your wall to the real deal in your garage. You’ve got that beauty looking cherry. You went for the highest horsepower possible in the form of a 400 cubic inch (6.6l) Pontiac V8. On the weekends you crank up the stereo and cruise with your elbow jutted out the window.
But admit it, that’s not enough. You want to channel your inner-Smokey and rip your fully-restored muscle car across the heart of America. Here is your chance.
