I like to think there was a time in America when every man’s dream car was a Trans Am. Even if that’s not true, it’s hard not to want one after watching the Smokey and the Bandit films. Burt Reynolds somehow still makes Trans Ams cool long after the cars themselves faded into history, and while you’ll never make the car look as cool as Burt did, at least now you’ll have a chance to try … if you’ve got a lot of cash.
