About “The Bandit”

I purchased my Special Edition "Bandit" Trans Am in May of '06 by being in the right place at the right time.
I was getting ready to head out to Boise, Idaho for my niece's First Communion on Thursday morning and just before turning in for the night, I thought I would see what was new on eBay. Well how about that, a '78 Black Special Edition appeared. After I read through the info on the car, and looked at the pictures, I scrolled back to the top only to find that the car was, you guessed it, in BOISE. Well, I sent the seller my cell number and asked him to call me the next day when I arrived in Boise. Well, long story short, I saw the car, drove it, looked at the paperwork, and yep, bought it right off the lot.
