Pop culture in 1970s was defined by two iconic films: Star Wars and Smokey and the Bandit. While you’re not likely to find a working lightsaber in your lifetime, you can drive like the Bandit himself. Previously owned by Burt Reynolds himself, this 1978 Bandit Series Pontiac Firebird used a 505 cubic inch V8, trick aluminum heads, custom 3″ exhaust, and Shaker hood to pump out a full 600 hp. This classic car has as many bells and whistles in the cabin as it does under the hood. The interior features Pioneer and JL audio along with headrests sporting Burt’s custom embroidered signature. Now on its second owner, this Bandit series Firebird was built to survive any amount of donuts and burnouts you can throw at it.
