Smokey and the Bandit Revisited - Fast-N-Loud

ML2014While finishing off inspection reports this morning I was completely distracted watching the Discovery Channel's Fast-N-Loud two part episodes featuring a "Smokey and the Bandit" build. Search your DVR and find the episodes and enjoy the memories. I posted on their FB page...

"I just watched the Smokey and the Bandit episodes and was thoroughly entertained... If there were a remake with all of these same characters on the big screen I would be the first to slap down the cash for the recliner seating and the extra large buttered popcorn to see it... Way-To-Go- Guys!!!"

FLASHBACKS - In 1977 I found myself in Campbell, Missouri (population 1,600) spending my summer while on school break from Southern California. My older sister Susie lived in nearby Malden, Mo. (population 4,200) and was then married to a good old boy named Rusty St. John. Rusty was thrilled to take us to the movies to see Burt Reynolds donn his famous black cowboy hat and speed through the south bootlegging beer in his black screaming chicken Trans Am. "10-4 Good Buddy"... CB radios were all the rage back in 1977 and that movie also left an incredible mark on my soul with a love for fast muscle cars and horsepower. Trans Am's became the norm for the older teens in the area and they could be heard racing through the rural countrysides of the panhandle of Missouri for the next dozen years.

If you can't find the full episodes on your TV, then here is a YouTube teaser link...

 Wait, here they are...
