BANDIT TRANS AM spotted in Oregon…

Flawless. Single owner car, this BANDIT is the best I’ve ever seen…

Now, what’s important to recognize is that this is a 1976 model. But the real Bandit was a ’77. Or, was it?

The answer is that the ’77 that was used for the film was really a ’76 in disguise because the ’77 had not come out yet. The front, wheels and minor adjustments were created to help promote new sales of the car once it came out. And boy, did it…

The owner, Bob Symons of Albany Oregon, was the first and ONLY owner of this perfect beast. Original paint, graphics and all, he heads to car shows all the time to show it off. But all I wanted… was to see this thing fishtail out of his showroom, chased by the Oregonian Smokies. C’mon, Bob… just once, please?
