      Hey all, My name is Mark Haynes. I am from central Georgia. I own a 1978 Trans Am and plan on participating in the Georgia portions of "The Bandit Run" events. I helped Brett with some of the Georgia filming locations of Smokey and the Bandit with the help of others.

      I am a moderator at www.transamcountry.com and look forward to this event.

      Hello, I'm Tyler Hambrick from Newnan, Ga. and I plan to go on the Bandit Run also. I have a 77 TA SE and custom build Smokey and the Bandit model trucks and sell on ebay (Bigt232). I have alot of information about the movie, it was filmed 20 minutes from my house. Would be glad to conduct a movie location tour. Some of the original bridge is still there from the bridge jump scene. Mark, I plan to leave on on Monday in May. I have also been talking with Year One. thanks, Tyler
       

       

      God Bless, Tyler

      Tyler, I think I have seen some of your Rigs on Ebay. I would buy one but my kids would destroy it, LOL. Hey Tyler, could you contact Brett Cambell at www.78TA.com about filming locations. He is one of the guys that is instrumental in organizing the show and he was looking for info in filming locations. I got some info from a couple people and forwarded it too him. The only spot I have been too was the site where Burt kissed Sally in Unicoi State Park and HWY 75 between Helen and Hiawassee Where he drove throught the creek and where the sherriff cars backed into the creek. I know where alot of the things are around Jonesboro, but never have been to them. I can't do the whole tour but I plan on doing the Georgia portion, maybe from Alabama on to Braselton if I can pull it off.
