I remember this commercial not because Burt was selling Florida Orange Juice. Because of his history with the state, that seemed natural. No, what I remember about this commercial is that amazing Trans-Am toy car that his son pulls up in. After seeing Smokey and the Bandit, I so wanted that car and if I knew that I could have owned it in peddle-car form, my family would have never heard to the end of it. From what I hear, that car in currently in the Burt Reynold’s museum (waiting for me to claim it as its rightful owner).
