PONTIAC FIREBIRD TRANS-AM
Smokey and the Bandit, 1977
Second only to Star Wars at the box office in 1977, this tale of a getaway driver and his trucker friend duelling with the law may as well have taken place in a galaxy far, far away, as that’s what the Deep South looked like here. It’s essentially one long car chase, with a Pontiac Trans-Am (indestructible, obvs), Burt Reynolds in his moustachioed prime and a sheriff called Buford T. Justice. For a while, we all wanted CB radios.
