About “Modern Day Bandit”

I bought this car new in 2002. This is my modern day interpretation of the 1977 Bandit Car. I tried to incorporate attributes of and remain true to the original. This is the car I take on the Bandit Run every year since the first one in 2007. I started modifying the car in 2009 and have not stopped since. It's ADDICTING!!! lol.

About “The Hawk”

Stone Stock Firehawk #344 six speed. We are the original owners. The coolest part is Hawk 344 showed up at the dealer we ordered her from (of course she would) on December 7th 2001. That's Pearl harbor day! Awesome! After doing some research, there were 1501 hawks built in '02 and 16 with SOM (Sunset Orange Metallic) and six speed. That makes her somewhat rare. As far as the other '02 hawks I have seen, most of them are with the leather interior, which we did not opt for, soley to make Hawk 344 a one-of-a-kind. If she really is the only one in that configuration that would be totally cool, if not she's still one bad bird. We also like to attend the Ames Tri-Power nationals and Firehawk Rally at Summit Motor Sports Complex, formerly known as Norwalk Raceway Park, in Norwalk Ohio. One can see as many as 70 or 80 Firehawks at that show ranging from '92 thru '02, except of course for '98, none were ordered in that year.

While we do realize the Hawk is just a car, still, the Hawk has never been rained on, not even once. We just wipe her down with wipe-n-shine and a diaper.
