If you could have just one...?

I suppose the original is always the best choice.

1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 6.6L in "Smokey and the Bandit"





1980 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Turbo 4.9L in "Smokey and the Bandit II"





1983 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am in "Smokey and the Bandit Part 3"

That's a collective 620something horsepower you're bashing there, manchild.

I thought you said original. I would go with the 73 SD 455 T/A in Brewster Green. A former girlfriend's brother had one that I drove several times and it was a very nice well behaved monster.

Ah, the Super Duty! Not in any of the movies, however so it is not an allowed choice.

I didn't realize there was a movie caveat.

In that case I would take Frog. The 1977 model. Not the Boniva laced current model. It seems to fragile.

I would have thought the inclusion of the movie titles above each picture would have been sufficient notice. Next time, I'll post more slowly.
