know its a ChryCo car because at the end when Charlie Sheen is given

Hooper came out in 1978, S&B I came out in ' 77 and featured a black special
edition car (where the term Smokey and the Bandit edition came from in Pontiac
circles. It is really a Black Special Edition car by technicality).
A recent Mountain Dew commercial had a 2nd gen (appeared to be a 1979) doing a
I remember Zales ads back in ' 79 having a Trans Am as a grand give away prize.

in 1977 or something like that.
I saw "The Last Ride" last night with Dennis Hopper. "High Performance
Pontiac" stated that Jim Wangers personal collection was present in the car
