    A lot of my child hood was spent watching smokey and the bandit 1 and 2 I didn't like the 3rd. I like the w9 and the general they used from 1 and 2. Kind of like the pete Jerry drove in the 3rd. My love for for semis came from watching smokey and the bandit.

    Smokey and the Bandit 3 was flat out horrible. Was Burt even in that one? The first was simply a classic though. That truck sparked my love of the W900A's.

    Fast cars & trucks ! Why wouldn't a young feller watching those films not want to get in this line of work ?

    If I'm not mistaken it was just Jerry, But Burt did do a thing at the end of the film where he was in the car talking to Bufrod T. Justice.

    Of Smokey and the Bandit? Its when he stomps on the brake pedal at the rail crossing. That shot was mirrored because the pedals are backwards.

    Thought I was the only one to pick up on that.
