“Honey, hush!” That was a direct quote from the late, great Jerry Reed when he first laid eyes on the ’77 Trans Am SE that ‘The Bandit,” Burt Reynolds, drove out of the tractor trailer in the 1977 film, Smokey and the Bandit. That movie was the start of your author’s love affair for the Pontiac Trans Am, and cars as a whole, when I first watched it on TV sometime in the early 1980s.
Loud, fast and as ‘American Badass’ as you could get for the time (and maybe even today), the ’77 Trans Am SE is the ultimate collector car from the late-70s. Looking to mark the 40th-Anniversary of the classic film that made the car famous in the first place, Dream Giveaway has announced their 2017 contest where you can WIN this gorgeous example, emblazoned with Burt’s signature and autographed Stetson. Just be sure to enter the EXCLUSIVE Timeless Muscle DISCOUNT code: TQ0117Z — and you’ll earn additional bonus tickets (i.e., chances) to WIN!!

THE BANDIT IS BACK
Nearly 40 years after the classic car-guy film Smokey and the Bandit skyrocketed to the second-highest-grossing movie of 1977, the Bandit Trans Am is one of the hottest commodities in collector-car circles.
And the legendary Hollywood celebrity Burt Reynolds, star of Smokey and the Bandit, wants you to win a very special Bandit Trans Am that celebrates the 40th Anniversary of that legendary film.
And there’s more: Mr. Reynolds personally got behind the wheel of this Trans Am, recalling the days he starred in Smokey and the Bandit and went from Texarkana to Atlanta just to get 400 cases of Coors across four state lines.
But that’s not all: Mr. Reynolds pulled a Bandit-style cowboy hat from his personal collection and autographed it for the winner of the 2017 Bandit Dream Giveaway. You’ll be the proudest Bandit owner on earth when you frame his autographed cowboy hat and hang it on your wall. Will your friends be envious? Heck, every Bandit fan on earth will be envious!
If you win, you’ll also take home Mr. Reynolds’ famous autograph on this Bandit Trans Am’s original window sticker.
PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL
Pontiac built this very special Trans Am in March 1977. That’s two months before Smokey and the Bandit was released to theaters. In factory literature, black-and-gold Trans Ams were labeled Special Editions, but thanks to Burt Reynolds and the Smokey and the Bandit movies, they became known more commonly as Bandit cars.
This Bandit Trans Am is loaded with the factory options that made the Trans Ams destroyed during Smokey and the Bandit filming so famous, including the Special Edition package, T-tops, Custom interior, power windows, air-conditioning, AM/FM stereo and, of course, a screaming-chicken hood decal.
This Bandit Trans Am will haul you from Texarkana to Atlanta quicker than Sheriff Buford T. Justice, thanks to a 400ci engine backed by a Turbo 350 transmission. It is fully restored with eye-catching exterior, interior, and graphics.
If your ultimate dream is to own a Bandit Trans Am specially chosen and autographed by Burt Reynolds to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Smokey and the Bandit, this is the only Bandit Trans Am on earth for you. Put the pedal to the metal and enter to win today.
The winner of the 2017 Bandit Dream Giveaway will receive Mr. Reynold’s famous signature on multiple items. All autographs come with a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
- The 1977 Bandit Trans Am Shaker
- The 1977 Bandit Trans Am glove-box door
- A custom-made Bandit-style Stetson hat worn by Mr. Reynolds
- The Trans Am’s original window sticker
