  1. To be fair, I was probably not part of the target demographic for this movie. Junior in H.S., so a little older than the kids in the audience. Didn’t love the flick; didn’t love Burt; didn’t love the car. But if I saw one of these 70’s TAs on the street or in a lot today, you can bet I’d do my best to soak it in. Regardless of condition.

  2. I thought it was a pretty good looking car but in the real world it didn’t run like the one on the big screen. But the movie car was modified (just a little). It didn’t impress when your big brother owned a 455 SD,4 gear T/A! He test drove a new “Bandit” and then took the salesman for a ride in his Super Duty,when they got back they both had a grin a mile wide.

  3. You’ll love this one.. I shared a stage in Florida with Burt giving out Film Awards and afterwards I asked him to sign my Program. “Not now son, he groaned!
    Imagine what I thought… JV
