About This Show

A screen icon is reunited with his fastest costar! The Bandit himself, Burt Reynolds, joins DIY to build the Trans Am made famous in Smokey and the Bandit. This helps commemorate the 30th anniversary of the legendary film starring Burt Reynolds, Sally Field and Jackie Gleason. Burt brings modern upgrades to this classic model both under the hood and in the cockpit. However, the design is pure Bandit! This is a complete restoration from front to back, and DIY goes inside every turn of the screw.
