In-depth look at the 1979 Pontiac Trans Am special edition Burt Reynolds Smokey and the Bandit car, and 1987 Buick Grand National, including all original documentation, manuals, books & paperwork.
Check out the black and gold Special Edition trans am featured in Smokey and the Bandit & Smokey and the Bandit 2 starring Burt Reynolds, and one of the most desirable versions of the Buick Regal. The Buick was born from NASCAR origins - named for the NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series (the "Grand National" term was part of the Cup series nomenclature until 1986). Buick had won the Manufacturers Cup in 1981 and 1982 in General Motors stock cars, and wanted to capitalize on its success: "What wins on Sunday, sells on Monday".
