Just Put That Hammer Down And Give It Hell In This ‘76 Trans Am This 1976 Pontiac Trans Am was the first year of the famous Black Special Edition that became synonymous with Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am – a name that conjures an uncanny desire to become a legend in the name of beer and power slides. Despite the Firebird livery covering particular models of Trans Am, which represented a Phoenix, the car was affectionately dubbed as the Screaming Chicken at drag strips around the country. © 1976 Pontiac Trans Am Black Special Edition Back in the 1970’s the muscle car era was all but over.

Reynolds had put the car up for sale in an auction event last year in which he sold a large portion of his collection of movie paraphernalia. While this particular car wasn't actually used in the film, it saw time as a promotional vehicle and was given to Burt as a gift from the producers.

The offspring of a Phoenix-area Pontiac dealer, they had access to brand new Trans Ams without issue. Boasting enough performance knowledge to reinstate the power lost due to growing emissions equipment on the factory cars, they began adding turbochargers and, by the next year, had evolved to completely rebuilding the powertrain.
