Mark I'm thinking of rolling out after work Thursday night and getting in 4 hours of drive time. Then up early Friday and do the other 6 hours. Sunday roll out in the evening and stay over somewhere when I get tired then finish it Monday morning. Should be a fun weekend, no pressure, just drive the car around.

Hey guys and gals

I will be traveling from NC to GA for the Year One Experience, but do not trust my Bandit to go all the way to TX and back. What I would like to do is travel to the GA line and join you guys coming back in. Also would anyone else be interested in this? I will be running a CB and have my cell, I need to get in contact with someone in the group running from TX so I can cordinate meeting up with you guys, even if it's joining from the side of the road.

I signed up through the Motortopia site... is that all I have to do?

Is anyone forming a caravan from Michigan, Ohio, Indiana or Illinois...??  I don't want to drive it by myself.

Sure wish I could go, that looks like a lot of fun!  Someone take a laptop and post pics whenever you come across a WiFi area that you can use the internet.  That would be cool to see pics of the trip as it was progressing.

The Bandit Run Retraces the "Smokey and the Bandit" Route to Commemorate the Film's 30th Anniversary in 2007

Trans Ams and F-Bodies of all years are gathering to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the movie "Smokey and the Bandit." Restore a Muscle Car LLC (www.RestoreaMuscleCar.com), Motortopia (www.Motortopia.com) and 78ta.com are organizing a cruise to retrace the route driven by Bandit and Snowman. The Bandit Run will start in Texarkana, Texas (tentatively May 15th, 2007) and continue through Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. The final destination will be Atlanta and the YearOne Experience which takes place May 18-20, 2007.

Hot Rod TV and TLC are scheduled to film the events of the YearOne Experience in Atlanta, GA. Once at the YearOne Experience, Bandit Run participants will be treated to a special welcome reception and ticket discounts. Plus, participants will 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 will be working in conjunction with the Bandit himself, Burt Reynolds, to build a new resto-mod series of 1977 Bandit Style Trans Ams. YearOne is also working on getting Burt as a special guest at the YearOne Experience. (For more information on all the events at the YearOne experience, visit www.YearOne.com.)

All Trans Ams and F-Bodies are welcome to participate in this fun and historic adventure. Please let us know if you have a black 76-81 Trans Am and/or Special Edition. All other makes are also welcome.

Fans and participants can visit www.TheBanditRun.com for the latest news and developments.

Hot damn!  I wish like Hell I'd gotten my '79 a few months ago!  I'm not sure I can have it ready to pull off a road-trip of that distance in time!  Any chance this will become a yearly event?

On the off chance that I can make 'er road worthy by then, have we made a plan for an Ohio caravan?  In my experience, the caravans are always the most fun part of trips like this!

I'd love to go on the caravan from Texarkana to Atlanta. I live in Joplin Mo., so it wouldn't be far at all to get to Tx. I'm gonna go to my mechanic friend, and see if he'll help me get the car ready for a long run. I'll have to ask my boss for that weekend off also, but that shouldn't be a problem. The only thing that is that my car won't be back into restored shape by then. Wish me luck! And the 17th is my birthday, so that would be a great present to myself!!!!
