    I've got a canoe that looks a lot like the one used in "Deliverance". Wonder if I can get some bucks for that??

    I bought a T/A new in 1978 for $7000. It stickered about $8000 IIRC. Honey comb wheels, hatch tops, white with black velour, T/A 6.6 engine, 4-speed. 220 hp. Not very reliable. Looked good though.

    If it has Burt’s signature on it and he owned it (like the TA), probably a bit more than yours

    An old BMX bike of mine was in Cape Fear (1991). To think I let it go at a garage sale for probably five dollars.

    Depends... You got the purty mouth to go with it?

    Can you squeal like a piggy? C'mon, squeal.

    You need to spray some Flex Seal on that. Good as new.

    A whole 220 HP! Engines from that time period sure did suck!

    I remember the line:

    “I’m gonna need a car. Something with some real heat under the hood.” LOL

    I know they say money can't buy happiness, and I believe it too.

    That being said, it must be nice to able to spend $200k on a car because of provenance.

    Don't know about that, would be interesting to know. The real Bandit cars were 1976 models that Pontiac put 1977 front ends on (filming was before 1977's were released).

    That's a beautiful car. I was a huge fan of the 77-78 Trans Am when I was a kid, and I still have a place in my heart for them.
