Burt Reynolds Unveils New ‘Bandit Edition’ Trans Am
“The Pontiac Trans Am was originally manufactured by General Motors from 1967 to 2002 but with the folding of the Pontiac brand back in 2009, it seemed like we’d never the badass car again. However, that all changed when a company called Trans Am Depot licensed the name and badge.”
Is it just me or is this….disappointing? While I like the paint and the engine (840 horsepower!), the body style isn’t anywhere near as cool as the original. And, if you’re going to update the car, why not update the transmission, too? I mean, an automatic? Lame! (To be fair, the original was an automatic – only thing I hated about it).
I’d still take an original 1977 Bandit Trans-Am over this.
