Trans-Am is a model of automobile from Pontiac used in the 1977 film, Smokey and the Bandit, and its sequels, Smokey and the Bandit II and Smokey and the Bandit, Part 3.

In the first film, Big Enos and Little Enos Burdette makes an offer to the Bandit that if he delivers 400 cases of Coors Beer from Texarkana, Texas to bring back to Atlanta, Georgia in under 28 hours, he would be paid $80,000, (an act in the film called "bootlegging" as many truckers who were made similar offers from Big Enos and Little Enos in the film prior have been arrested).  

To carry out the job, the Bandit buys the 1977 Trans-Am to run as a blocker, diverting the police away from Snowman in the Kenworth who is delivering the illegal cases of Coors.

During the film, the Trans-Am is chased by the film series antagonist, Sheriff Buford T Justice and his son, Junior and other police from the various states during which it drives off-road, over a pond, and even jumps over a river, and never even gets scratched.

After they win the bet, Bandit gets drunk and trades it for a case of beer. Frog buys him a new 1980 Trans-Am when Big Enos and Little Enos makes him another bet.


The car is the main vehicle of Sho in the film , although he really destroying it.
