PON­TIAC FIRE­BIRD TRANS-AM

Smokey and the Ban­dit, 1977

Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Movie Cars -

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.
