Plot hole: Bandit and Snowman must have special powers to accomplish their round trip 1800 mile journey in the time they do. For starters when they begin the trip in Georgia it's sometime in the afternoon, and we later see them travelling at night before arriving at the Coors facility in Texarkana the next morning. This means the majority of their 28 hour window was spent getting TO Texarkana. So how is it they were able to both make the 900 mile trip back to Georgia while making all the stops they had to make, avoid all the smokies chasing Bandit off his path and give Bandit and Carrie time to be romantic all with only a few hours to spare after leaving Texarkana? At the very least it should have been late event or night time when they got back to their destination in Georgia.
Continuity mistake: When the Bandit first pulls over and picks up Sally Field, then he screeches off, if you look at the road you can see all the skid marks from all of the other takes of this scene, even down to the bit where the van pulls out of the junction and the bandit does his thing and then suddenly speeds off.
Buford T. Justice: What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law.
Question: Does anyone know if the Trans AM and the truck used in the film are still around?
