Cledus Snow: You can't drive a fork lift.
Bandit: I can drive any forkin' thing around.
The odometer in the Trans Am is shown to have 1108.8 miles on it, rolling on up to 1108.9 during the shot. A little later during the movie, after they have travelled a considerable amount of miles, Bandit says, "We'll let's just see what he's got under the hood." A close-up of the speedometer shows the speed increasing to about 120 Km/hr, but the odometer is still on 1108.9, and counting. See more...
Throughout the movie, the Plymouth or Dodge (even the larger Ponitiac) police cars show up with hood scoops. These were not available on some of these cars. Maybe the hood scoops were simply added for effect? See more...

Continuity: In the scene where Buford T Justice is waiting in line behind a bunch of cars stopped at a car accident (in Alabama) there is a green Cadillac behind him, when he pulls off to the side to try getting through and gets stopped by the trooper, the same Cadillac is in the front of the line. At the very end of the film, when Bandit and Smokey are talking on CBs to each other, the same Cadillac is parked in the background, ahead of the red convertible that Bandit is driving...now in Georgia!
Continuity: When the Bandit first drives the Trans Am out of the trailer, the front license plate is easily seen, and it has 2 basic designs on it. The right side of the plate (about 3/5s of it) has a confederate flag on it, and the remaining left side of the plate has a light blue background with a white circular logo in it (the Georgia State Seal?). When Bandit wipes out the row of mailboxes along the side of the highway, the license plate is upside-down.
