This must be a tribute to the late, great Burt Reynolds. RIP Bandit.
It is but the irony here is the main cars used in the SATB movies were GM models (primarily Pontiacs).

Well, that's not entirely true; I read that a made-for-TV sequel actually had a Dodge Stealth in it, along with other Chrysler products.

Such was a little-known, lame (from what I can tell) reboot (& ironically, the storyline is a prequel) that didn't include Burt Reynolds in it at all. 

Heck, even the third movie barely had him in it.

I like seeing the old F-100 rolling with the pack (no load behind it), and the old Bronco being pulled on a trailer. They both look great.
