I will have more details next week, but they will probably leave Texas first on or around Thursday, get to Atlanta Friday Night or Saturday, then Saturday would be all of the areas where they filmed the movie and Sunday would be the Year One Experience show.  More to come......

Not to upstage anybody but I found this on the Bandit Trans Am Clubs site today:

This is it! To commemorate the 30 year anniversary of the release of the original Smokey and the Bandit movie, we are putting together a cruise to retrace the route Bandit and Snowman took in that film!

We plan to start in Texarkana, Texas and drive through Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and then on to Georgia. Our destination will be Atlanta and the YearOne Experience which is May 18-20, 2007.

The exact start date and locations for the cruise are still being planned. But if you would like to participate, please let us know by filling out the entry form below. The cruise will likely begin 3 days prior to the start of the YearOne Experience. Dallas will likely be the gathering place for the pre-start.

The YearOne people already have Hot Rod TV and TLC scheduled to shoot the events of the YearOne Experience. And, they have suggested we allow them to shoot our cruise as well. Plus, press from national car magazines may also ask to tag along! This means your car could end up in the glossy pages of a cool national publication!

Once at the YearOne Experience, Bandit Run participants will be treated to a special welcome reception and ticket discounts. Plus, weíll be allowed to take a ceremonial lap around the scenic 2.54-mile road Atlanta Grand Prix course.

As an added surprise, the folks at YearOne have just announced they are working in conjunction with the Bandit himself, Burt Reynolds, to build a new resto-mod series of 1977 Bandit Style Trans Ams. Move over Eleanor, the Bandit is here! And if thatís not enough, they are even working on getting Burt as a special guest at the YearOne Experience! For more information on all the events at the YearOne Experience, please visit their site at www.yearone.com.

Trans Ams and F-Bodies of all years are welcome, but please let us know if you have a black 76-81 TA model or SE. There may be a nominal fee to join the cruise, to cover basic expenses related to planning, giftbag goodies, etc, but donít worry about that right now.

Please e-mail the following info to banditrun07@yahoo.com if you would like to participate!

Name:
Address:
Phone:
E-mail:
Type of TA/F-body you plan to drive:
Any suggestions?
If you live in Texas, Arkansas, Mississipppi or Alabama, would you like to help us organize the route?



Seeing how this thing ENDS in Atlanta, HELL yea!! We're going!!

I am GUESSING here but went ahead and booked a room at the Best Western, Braselton, GA. Seeing how its a stones throw from Road Atlanta and its where Year One's headquarters are, I took a shot. BECAUSE, when the announcements ARE made, stuffs going to fill up fast. Nothing like a good hole shot to beat 'em off the line. 8)

Ta2dbandit -- yeah, 3.73:1s can get kind of "droney" on the road for a long time -- great on the strip and local streets, not so great for a long road trip. :?  8)


I may have to massage the car a little. Gas to get there and back will be bad enough.

Hey Tin Indians, Are you taking the big truck?

I sure glad I have the 2.56 gears and not 3.73's in mine. But Spartanburg, SC is a little shorter drive than Ohio. I just have to fix the pump to torque converter seal before I can go.
