Corrected entry: If you look on the front of the Trans-Am there is an eagle, which was on the hood of the real bandit's hood in the first two Smokey and The Bandit movies.
Smokey and the Bandit III (1983)
1 corrected entry
Directed by: Dick Lowry
Starring: Jackie Gleason, Jerry Reed, Paul Williams, Pat McCormick
Deliberate mistake: When Cletus is driving the Trans Am as the bandit, it shows him driving to the left and waving at a group of girls. The close up of him driving must be reversed because it looks like the Trans Am is now a right-hand drive. (00:26:45)
Buford T. Justice: Follow that sum bitch.
Question: Why did Burt Reynolds not reprise his roll as Bandit in this film?
Answer: A little obvious: the second film was a box office disaster, so Burt bowed out.

Correction: The eagle was on the front of the hood because it was part of the optional gold trim package that was a feature on the car. The eagle was in no way meant as a tribute to the first 2 movies. This is in no way a vaible trivia entry.
