Pontiac Trans Am 1978 Pro-Touring
Yes! We have another one!
If you have not seen Burt Reynolds in the film ‘SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT’ you must be an alien!
So, get the dvd and watch the film hundreds of times, we have!
Getting a good example of this model is not easy. They were prone to rot. We actually inspected this one in Daytona Florida. It is rust free. This one is a bit special, fitted with a fuel injected Corvette engine (we love those) Hotchkiss suspension and disc brakes all round, it drives great. That is the thing with the Trans Am, it was always a great car to drive. Compared to ’60’s cars the gearing is higher and the seats more comfortable. This model is more a long legged GT that sounds like a muscle car, than it is a muscle car. Mind you, that has changed with the ‘Vette motor, this pulls like a train and will smoke them tyres, real muscle!
In Starlight black paint, with the Gold Eagle decals, new Year One Snowflake wheels and new tyres, white face gauges, new grille surround, new steering wheel, it looks as good as it goes, and it goes good!
‘Mr.Bandit, you are the best goddam pursuee that I have ever pursued!’
‘Thank you Sheriff’.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Reynolds, you were one cool dude!
