here is my 80 turbo trans am "son of trigger" smokey and the bandit part 2 star car.im not writing this to piss other trans am owners off but alot of people claim 81s were used in s/b2 and they werent and heres my proof lol.think about this: 1 smokey and the bandit part 2 was filmed in jan of 1980 and released in aug of 1980 so theres no way they couldve got a 81 that early lol (2 1980 was the last year you could get the 4 color trans am bird in 1981 they went to a 2 color bird which looked like a stencil of the former bird,if you actually watch smokey and the bandit 2 youll notice with all the scenes with the 80 turbo t/a it has the 4 color bird not the 2 color(3 i have never seen a 80 trans am with a bird decal on the fuel door as most 81s have,if you watch s/b 2 and look at the rear shots is got the bird delete fuel door just as 80s did(4 at the ending credits it states 1980 trans am "son of trigger",and of course there is a 81 turbo that was givin to burt that sported 15x7 snowflakes instead of turbo wheels in which was sold to a online musuem which was never used in s/b 2 and there is a 81 add which burt sits on top of a new t/a if youll notice on that picture the t/a has a tan dash and steering wheel well you couldnt get a tan dash or steering wheel in 81 it was either dark brown or black but anyway that car is believed to be a 1980 from earlier 1980 turbo add.now thats over my 80 turbo t/a sport all the options as the 80 turbo from s/b 2,the 301 turbo is long gone it now sports a 68 model sbc engine backed by a borgwarner 4spd,details on drivetrain are kept secret,i am the 3rd owner my dad was the 2nd,its a true y84 se.im also the hugest bandit part 2 fan out there and have rare info and pics of the actual cars used in part 2 and i know reproduce the correct "bandit" door lettering which is the most accurate on the market and i also sell the correct bandit part 2 movie correct cb antennas!thanks for looking!
