I know Pontiac promised to gift Burt Reynolds a Trans Am if the movie did well.It also didn't help that my uncle shipped the car to England when we moved there.Obviously, there are some very stark contrasts between the 1977 Trans Am and pretty much anything contemporary.It also isn't just about its "oh so American" 1980s muscle-car styling.The fact is the Trans Ams used in "Bandit" came from an era before global warming was a thing, and consequently the engine bay beneath its massive nearly 2-meter-long hood was home to a honking 6.6 liter V-8, at least in one of the cars used. Torque, however, was a respectable 430 Newton meters and ensured that cruising along America's highways felt as cool as the car looked.Sure, it was eventually replaced by the 1982 model, the KITT car in "Knight Rider" and a bunch of other successors that I couldn't even begin to describe and obviously I had to look them up.Up until we decided to review this '70s icon, I hadn't bothered to look into Pontiac at all. Ten seconds on Google revealed something absurd: Pontiac has been retired since 2010 .
