The goal of this 1978 Firebird Make Over was to build a super high-performance Trans Am , and turn it  into a 1977 Special Edition Trans Am  that was in the classic movie Smokey and the Bandit starring Burt ReynoldsThis 1978 Trans Am  is our customers  original high school car that he kept for years. He came to us with a  vision of transforming his 1978 into a 1977 Tran AM muscle machine with retro styling.
