Knight Rider, Smokey & The Bandit and the Dodge Stealth

Post by EdwardKnoxII » Mon Feb 25, 2013 10:18 am

Something I thinking about. In the 90s two series which are known for the Tram Am had them replaced by the same car.

In 1990 Knight Rider 2000 comes out and instead of a Trans Am they use a car made to look like the Banshee. The car they used? A Dodge Stealth.

Then in 1994 they come out with series of TV movies based on Smokey and The Bandit simply named Bandit. And instead of using a Trans Am the Bandit drives a black Dodge Stealth.

So going by that I guess that means whenever they remake the Bandit he'll be driving a Mustang.

Ah the things you think about when bored. :p

Bandit was a tv series,part of the Action Pack lineup.

One of the things I think about is how some television shows can influence others.For instance look at the firebird.I bet you guys don't know too many shows where the firebird was the heroe's car.I think The Rockford files had some influence on kr.The star wore sporstjackets.Michael Knight wore a leather jacket.Michael Knight drove a trans am.Jim Rockford drove a tan 70's firebird.Both were investigators.
