'Smokey and the Bandit' Reimagined

6-PICK_UP

It's the 40th anniversary of "Smokey and the Bandit," the legendary chase film starring Burt Reynolds as the bandit and Sally Field as a runaway bride. It also featured this famous scene involving a bridge:

To celebrate the anniversary, the good folks at Carspring (all the way from the United Kingdom) have reimagined what some of the cars would look like if the movie were remade today, including a Ford F-150 Raptor and a Tesla semitruck.

I think that GM's legal department might have a problem with Ford putting a Firebird logo (can you say trademark?) on the side of a Raptor.

Something tells me that today's millenials won't get the whoe Smokey thing. Unless they can borrow mom's car...

Why - you have anger against millennials?

papajim,

RIF. Reading is fundamental. This is a photoshop by a UK car blog.

Smokey and the bandit logo on a Ford? Not that a modern day Camaro made of plastic and two inches off the ground could do all the offroading and water fording scenes that the Firebird did.

I could be wrong but I believe when this very site had an article that semi it was called A Nichola not Tesla.

To plat the game rubiks cube than make a tap on the website game free rubiks cube to play and enjoy the free game rubiks cube that we really have to get the new change in the setting of the game rubiks cube online.

That's just awful on both incarnations. Stick with rebadged Camaros.

A weak Ford Craptor never could with stand half the jumps a tought as nails Firebird did.

@johnny doe - the original Smoky and the Bandit went through 12 Trans Am's. The original movie used a 76 TA with a 77 front end.
