While I was in Nashville over Christmas, I paid a visit to the Country Music Hall Of Fame. A very interesting place, full of memorabilia. Of particular interest to me was the Pontiac Turbo Trans Am they had on display, which was one of the cars used in the 1980 film Smokey & The Bandit II. It was rather awkwardly placed and hard to photograph as lighting wasn't great in there, but I did get a few shots of this great motor.
I had a slot car version of the car from the first film delivered today, it is not advertised as such but it is clear from the pictures the intended subject - even more so with the roof panels removed. Just a few accents to do, not least Burt's impressive 'tache, and we're well away:
You may have been restricted for space but they're still great pictures, thanks for posting Gene.
I'm going to say this once and once only Gene: Stay out of Camberwick Green!
Thanks for sharing Gene. It seemed the film was always on over Christmas in the 80s and I always tuned in . I've always loved the Trans Am even though its brash American fare. The colour scheme works well and even the bonnet eagle decal looks good.
Yes I like Trans Ams too, you did used to see the occasional one on the road in the late 70s and early 80s as they were one of a handful of American cars which were officially imported to Britain by General Motors. Of the smokey and the bandit films, I thought the first one was passable but 2 and 3 weren't particularly good. James Garner also drove one in the Rockford Files.
