It's going to be a great time for all who come. Of all the firebird events I have ever been involved with this will by far be the biggest one ever which is fitting because it is in memory of The Bandit.

In 2014 Tyler Hambrick brought his replicas of Snowman's rig & Buford's cruiser to a benefit car show in Raynham MA for Wounded Warriors. It was way beyond cool and everyone with a Firebird there had the opportunity to get a pic of their car with them by a professional photographer. I had it done with me sitting in my Bandit with my elbow on the door just like Burt did in the promo pic for SATB 2. If you come to the cruise in Boylston you will get to see that pic.
Here's a link to a bunch of pics from that show in 2014.

Coming up soon - next weekend we will be honoring the man who got most of us hooked on Trans Ams, having fun starring in a movie as a favor for his buddy Hal Needham. A man whose high pitched laugh and mischievous smirk were his trademark and we can see and hear in our mind.
Burt's passing bothered me a lot more than I thought it would for a number of reasons I will relate when I am speaking to everyone at this event.
I can't think of a better way to honor The Bandit than by doing what he did best.
Like he said - "We're only here for a little while. Might as well have some fun, right?"

Legendary auto interiors has my seat frames and all new upholstery still. However I dont want to wait until next year to join in on the fun. The car looks ratty but the 400 is running nasty. I need to top off the r-12 to get some ac work. However ive been scrambling around all week to make it. Ready or not... Here I come.
Thank you

Your car doesn't have to be perfect to join in the fun we love them all period. Base model Firebirds to Trans Am SEs; driving projects to show cars. We drive cool cars and that's what it's all about!  :cool:
Looking forward to seeing your car  :cool:
