A new series on Fox I think it is called The Good Guys has a 79 in it. It comes on tomorrow after Idol looks really funny.

Help me with my old age memory, was there a scene in smokey and the bandit where a state trooper in a Trans am pulls up behind the bandit then he runs out of gas and drops out of the chase, I thought I remembered this but I bought the dvd and didn't see it, maybe I've watch too many car chases and got them mixed up?

I've seen way to many as well - but the scene you may be thinking about (and i'm not too sure either) is from Cannon Ball Run where a firebird cop car chases the Lamborghini driven by the women and they floor it and leave the cop in their dust - looks like he runs out of gas compared to how fast they take off.

It was probably a 78 because it had the Fisher top...not saying it was for sure but just saying probably was...lol

I just watched that movie last night and I'm not a fan of the shaker bird they used

I watched a new show called Rookie Blue and they were doing a prostitute scene and showed a car lot and it had a 79 - 81 Trans Am in it. Anybody else see it?

dont forget the beginning of thunderbolt and lightfoot when lightfoot(jeff bridges) steals a 73 trans am from a dealership and rescues thunderbolt(clint eastwood) from getting shot at the beginning of the movie. good flick!

They missed the remake of "The Hitcher". It had a black 1979 SE.
WRONG ! they used a 81 t/a in the remake notice the 1 color 81 decals and the dash
