Smokey and the Bandit is a 1977 action comedy film starring Burt Reynolds,
Sally Field, Jackie Gleason, Jerry Reed, Pat McCormick, Paul Williams, and
Mike Henry. It inspired several other trucking films, including two
sequels, Smokey and the Bandit II, and Smokey and the Bandit Part 3.
There were also a series of 1994 television films (Bandit Goes Country,
Bandit Bandit, Beauty and the Bandit, and Bandit's Silver Angel) from
original director/writer Hal Needham loosely based on the earlier version,
with actor Brian Bloom now playing Bandit. The three original films
introduced two generations of the Pontiac Trans Am. The film was the fourth
highest-grossing film of 1977.
Rich Texas wheeler-dealer Big Enos Burdette and his son, Little Enos, are
trying to find a truck driver willing to haul Coors beer to Georgia for
their refreshment. At the time, Coors was only distributed in certain
states west of the Mississippi River, and truck drivers who had taken the
bet previously had been discovered and arrested by "Smokey" (truck driver
and CB slang for highway patrolmen). At a local truck rodeo, the Texans
locate legendary truck driver Bo "Bandit" Darville and offer him US$80,000,
the price of a new truck, to haul 400 cases of Coors beer from Texarkana,
Texas to the "Southern Classic" in Georgia -- in 28 hours, driving a total
of 1,800 mi (2,900 km) (This was an artistic liberty, as Texarkana, Texas,
is located in a dry county and Coors was not legally sold there,and the
trip is actually only 1260 miles.)
Bandit accepts the bet and recruits fellow truck driver Cledus "Snowman"
Snow to drive the truck; Snow brings along his dog, a Basset Hound named
"Fred", for company. After requesting an advance from the Burdettes for a
"speedy car", Bandit purchases a black Pontiac Trans Am, which he will
drive himself as a "blocker" car to deflect attention away from the truck
and its cargo. The duo reach Texas ahead of schedule, load their truck with
Coors, and immediately head back towards Georgia. Shortly thereafter,
Bandit picks up professional dancer and apparent runaway bride Carrie, whom
he nicknames "Frog" because (in her anxiety) she was "always hopping
around". However, by picking up Carrie, Bandit becomes the target of Texas
Sheriff Buford T. Justice, "a respectable law officer of over thirty years
seniority", whose handsome yet very simple-minded son Junior was to have
been Carrie's groom.
The remainder of the film is essentially one big high-speed chase, as
Bandit and Frog attract continuous attention from local and state police

Snowman's Truck and Trailer
A quick walk around of The Smokey and the Bandit Truck and Trailer. This
was recorded at the Charlotte Diesel Super Show 2012.
The film also made use of three Kenworth W900A short-frame semi trucks
which Jerry Reed's character "Snowman" can be seen driving, each equipped
with 38" sleepers. Two units were 1974 models, as evidenced by standard
silver Kenworth emblems on the truck grille, and one unit was a 1973 model,
as evidenced by the gold-painted Kenworth emblem on the truck's grille
signifying Kenworth's 50 years in business. The paint code for each truck
was coffee brown with gold trim, and the 40 ft mural trailer used was
manufactured by Hobbs Trailers in Texas with a Thermo King Refrigeration
BJ And The Bear Ownby Trucking Style
It's obvious where Ownby Trucking of Carpinteria, CA. got their inspiration
for this truck and it's paint sceme. My own personal opinion is that this
is even better looking than the one on BJ And The Bear. I like that this
1982 Kenworth K-100 VIT AeroDyne is running a long wheelbase and that the
53' Utiliy 3000R refer has a spread axle setup. It's combining the old
school looks of the 70's and the more generous lenghts allowed today. A
really nice rig and trailer combo. Seen at the 2011 Truckin' For Kids
Truck Show at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, CA. on 9-25-11.
Stinger voltage meter put in and decaf demo.AVI
I finally got my stinger volt meter put in and also got my usb cable ran so
I can start using a flash drive to play mp3's instead of cd's, so no more
skipping. I also play decaf's beartrap excursion on my system and that
thing straight slams. If you've never heard of decaf go to
www.down4sound.com and go to the modified tracks section to find his music.
I highly recommend it!
