Bert Reynold – Smokey and The Bandit, Firebird Legend!


When the impressive and handsome boy became a football player in State University in Florida, nobody even imagined that he will be one of the most attractive and paid actors in America just a decade after. However, that happened after a traffic accident and knee operation, which forced to stop with football and a sport.

During 50’s, Bert Reynolds was a student in Florida and a very popular football player. However, even the magnificent career of a sportsman started to grow and promised great results, he also visited a few acting classes on the college. That was a smart move since he had to stop with the football because of the knee insure and a serious traffic accident. One day, he played in a student performance. The legend was born. After that, he collected only a success in acting.

The serious work on the movie and a theatre started during the 60’s. He was one of the most attractive and popular young actors, and surely a macho man with a charisma. The great popularity brought a naked photo in Cosmopolitan, but also movies “Smokey and the Bandit” and “Boogie Night”. The last role was last year Quentin Tarantino movie “Once upon a time in Hollywood”. Reynolds died in 83 from a massive heart attack in Florida.


For those who loved his roles, being a protecting mark of a Pontiac Trans Am Bandit was a logical step and surely one of the great memories on him and significance he represented. The manufacturer has made only 77 models of it, so only rich collectors could be able to buy it. An attractive exterior design, with muscle modernized front end and a little old-fashioned rear-end surely represents the model that many drivers would love to drive. For passenger’s enjoyment, there is a luxury leathered cabin in orange and black combination. The manufacturer allegedly prepared a strong GM’s 7.4-liter V8 model that should be able to produce 840 horsepower of strength and Pontiac Trans Am Bandit. We are not sure if they will continue with the productions or not.

We believe that many Bert Reynolds fans and fast classic cars lovers will be happy to see Pontiac Bandit again. However, their model is a brand and a classic car that not many people is able to own, which make of it a cult. Even though the manufacturer has not confirmed anything for 2020 so far, there are high chances that Bert Reynolds will have its own classic car. He deserved it.
