    The success of the Smokey and the Bandit caused Pontiac to make no changes to the TA from ’77 to ’78.
    That is power!

    Flash was the dog from The Dukes of Hazzard.
    Fred was the dog from Smokey and the Bandit.

      It was cool, and cool that he was driving it around the street. I don’t remember what he said he had into it, but I’ll bet more then all of the cars I have in the garage (and Adams!)

    Come on Marshall! Not even an honorable mention? I completed the fabrication of that Trophy Truck, both chassis and sheetmetal in my garage. Help a brother out! ;)-

    I raced the BAJA 1000 in Mexico this year and Bud was one of the drivers of another of our team cars—-great guy. Gave me a ride over to registration with his BF Goodrich team.
