Screamin’ Smokey — the ’81 Trans Am

New Zealand Classic Car - - ONLINE THIS MONTH -

The Pon­tiac Trans Am could hardly be called a sleeper or a wall­flower, but we reckon that’s the point. Ash­ley takes a look at the his­tory of the ‘Scream­ing Chicken’ most fa­mous for tak­ing Burt Reynolds coast-to-coast in Smokey and the Ban­dit, and chats to the own­ers of this ground-up re­built ex­am­ple, Brian and Enid Ser­vice, which even in­cludes the req­ui­site CB ra­dio and con­fed­er­ate flag plates.
