@SPRAYGUN:

I’m in on that contest……is that an authentic 23 channel cb in the car?40 channels did not come out until 1977.I guess it could go either way.Not only did that movie spur the sales of the trans am.It also propelled sales of cb radios nationwide.My parents and every one we knew went and bought one.Every car I have ever owned up until now has had a CB in it.It all goes back to that movie.My handle is “Spraygun”….Just get out there and holler for me.

Posted on December 10, 2013 at 2:27 pm

One of the best shows on TV. I grew up watching Burt, he is my childhood idle. It was good to see him at his home. I’m really glad he’s still alive, alot of my heros are gone. God bless the gas monkey crew, and your show.

I absolutely love the show! I am 14 and live in PA. Richard, you are my idol. I just recently bought a 1992 Chevy s10 blazer back in October that was in a fender-bender. i am fixing it up and hope to have it done by the new year. i have the whole front clip tore apart. i got all of the parts that i need for it except for a battery and a right passenger outer fender. do you have any places that you know of online that i can get the items that i need for somewhat of a cheap price. anyway it would mean alot to message me back, i’ve watched every episode of your show multiple times and i have every episode saved on dvr on my tv. thanks for your time.

My dad has always been the car guy and I’ve always been the sports guy. Tried to watch the other car shows with him but I’ve lost interest after the first five minutes. Your show is so great and different. I haven’t missed an episode. Thanks for making a great show that my dad and I can watch together and bond over. Hope I can win the Trans Am so my dad and I can go cruising together. Congrats on converting me to a car guy.

@DFrench:

Hi Guys, love the show. I have owned many Trans Ams, and worked for Pontiac back in the day. The one thing that baffled me, was why you kept trying to use the Olds 403 that was in that 77 car. Check the records, Pontiac never used a 403 in 1977 in a Trans Am. All 77 Trans Ams were a Pontiac 400. In 78, Formulas, base model Firebirds, and Espirits, were available with a 305, and 350 Chevy engine. Trans Ams all were Pontiac 400. 1979 was the only year Pontiac ever offered a Olds 403 in both the Trans Am, and Formula. And that year, there were limited edition Trans Ams available with a 400 Pontiac engine, and 4 speed transmission. So to me, it would have been much better to scrap that Toronado motor, and replaced it with an authentic 77 Pontiac 400, with factory chrome valve covers. Not trying to criticize, just was surprised. I’m just a little older than you guys. I was there in the day. Like you guys, myself being a car guy, Smokey And The Bandit shaped my driving habits, and car tastes. Sad to see Burt looking so frail. Anyway, check out what I said, you’ll see I’m right.

This car is my first memory of riding in a car when I was a itty bitty girl. My mom bought this car for $5,000 back in the day. Love you Richard!!! Would love to win this car!

Not too mention my RED hair goes amazing with Black!!! :) FINGERS CROSSED…

In high school I was the only chick in Auto shop for fours years, working on cars in my cheer uniform. :) My dream cars are a ’68 Camero (sexy) or a ’55 Chevy Belair “Shoebox racer” :)

I used to have a 78 TA right after I got my first real job.. I was 19 and had only driven junk until then! Needless to say I was in heaven driving around in that Gold TA! I’m 49 now and out of all of the cars I’ve owned that car was my very favorite. I sure I hope I win it…with 5 kids I will never be able to buy another one.

I had one of these in 1972 my last summer of highschool. A 1970 Pontiac Firebird 400 with a Hurst tranny and a 3/4 street and strip cam to make it go fast. My dad would not tell me when the sail was so I could not buy it. Otherwise I would have bought it, I had the money. It went really fast too! I sure went though gas though. The guy who bought it rapped it around a tree. Almost killed himself as well. Totaled the car too.

After a 16hr day, the only show worth staying up for is Gas Monkey Garage. Your cars make me work longer so I can one day slide in behind the wheel of a ride like a Gas Monkey makeover.

Love Smokey and the Bandit! Burt lives in my town Jupiter Fl, so it is only fitting that the car should come back here. Richard did you get to go out while you were here in Jupiter? Totally wold have asked my husband for a hall pass if I would have seen you! U r super sexy

Great Show. Richard, You must have inherited the best hair genes. Does your dad still have all his? Can’t believe you’re not bald. I’m in on this giveaway. Wish you would have given the Shelby Mustang away. I would have loved a chance at that one. Keep the cool cars and laughs coming.

PS- Does the winner get to take possession at the Gas Monkey Bar n Grill and do donuts in the parking lot?

@Lupe' Pizana:

Man I live in DETROIT “THE MOTORCITY” car capital of the World, but you boyees put us to shame up here. I definitely grew up in the 60s 70s- muscle era, so I can relate to your love for those big metal BEASTS..My favorite one is when my older brother came home from Vietnam in 71. Where he saved all his USMC Government checks until he got back to the “DEE” where he purchased from a used car lot. One BAD AZZ -70″ Dodge Super BEE gold on black with pistol grip shifter breaking that 440 magnum loose in the hood.It was the best time of my youthful years hearing that motor fire up. After that is was all muscle for me. So Monkey Crew could you guys ever try to restore a classic mopar. THANKS FELLAZ Your man Lupe’ In the “DEE”

Posted on December 11, 2013 at 11:06 pm

Love the show, great cars and characters. I had a 79 trans am with a locked up 403. My father and I rebuilt the motor. It had that same tall gear in it yours did. I lowered the gear in it to and wow what a difference. Great idea to put the overdrive trans in to get the rpms back down. I didn’t do that to mine and had problems overheating. My brother pestered me till I sold it to him. I’m still regretting it every time I come across the pictures of it or I see a bad ass one, like yours. Burt should be proud of the tribute show. Great work, keep up the good work. Oh I’d like to see a show were Richard dose some work. Or would that be a bad thing ?

Posted on December 12, 2013 at 1:22 am

Love the show fellas!! I’ve got a man crush for Richard an Aaron you guys bring it.
I’ve got a challenge for Richard and Dennis… Richard found the original car that had held the world recorded for the cannon ball run, the Challenge is, for Richard and Dennis to do the race in the original car that had done the first race. R and D did the race in Dennis’s Ferrari but the caveat is to do it in the other car. I have a hard time believing they could beat their time or the first world record. I know Richard is a gambling man and I’d love to throw some cash his way to see him try it. Maybe we can get Discovery to do a show of them trying it!! Hope this challenge can reach them and draw some interest. I’d love to hear their thoughts on it !! Let me know fellas if this might be possible!!! Keep the show on the road!!!

this is for the know it all pontiac guy who was giving them a hard time about the 403 used in the ta rather than complaining about the 403 how about commending them on using whey started with and finishing what they started and doing it on the alotted time frame given! well done guys!! ohh and bye the way in 1980 pontiac also produced a trans am with a small block 301 4.9liter turbo-charged v-8 with 4 wheel disc brakes radial tuned suspension and a posi no major power house but very nice handling car that also was a pleasure to own and drive! just saying!!!

@Tim:

Hey Guys,
Just finished watching the Bandit build, it looks even better now than when I saw it on the big screen as a 13 year old kid. I was changed forever, it turned me into a motor head. I fell in love with the TA’s, and bought a black and Gold edition as my first car in 83. I mowed a lot of f@*$&%ing lawns, and odd jobs to get it, too. No where near as cool as the 78, but its what I could get. I’ll clean out a place in my garage to park that bad boy when I win, haha. Take care, and keep putting out sweet rides. Merry Christmas

I didn’t see or hear a code on the last new show 12/16/2013. Did any one else?

@Willy K:

The Bandit episodes are the best ones yet. Can someone at least clarify if a new code has been displayed on the show each week? I saw the code on the show the first week, missed the second week’s show due to my wife skipping it so she could watch “The Voice” (didn’t talk to her for a few days), and watched the revved up episodes two nights ago but didn’t see a code anywhere. Again, I don’t want anyone to give me the code, I just want to know if there has been a different code each week and I’m just a dumba** and missed it. The peace of mind you would bring me would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    I know there was one the first two weeks, Willy. I was on a plane and missed the two episodes this past week.

Richard, I really enjoy watching your show. I can’t wait to see your restaurant/ bar when it’s done and would like to visit when I can. Gas Monkey Rocks!!!! I’m ready to win this beautiful dream, that will come true for me. The “Bandit One” Burt and I go way back when he started out my idle and “favorite movie star” His signature laugh, too his good looks and charm which I inherited as I was growing up. It would be my pleasure to carry on his legacy by owning his car from the ”Smokey and the Bandit” and driving it with pride. P.S. I have entered all the codes that no one seems to be able to find. My birthday is January 2nd and this would be a great way to start off the new year by you handing me the keys and drive off with a smile. Thanks, Christopher (St.Charles, MO.)

@Gary Klein:

I love your show and the Bandit 2 part series was one of the best. I had fun watching it and you certainly can tell that you all had a great time making it, I was looking at the photos of the gas monkey bandit and noticed the overdrive indicator on the shifter. The original T/A bandit car had a factory slap shifter so you could hit every gear. Did you modify the shifter for that extra shift? I have been entering the Bandit Giveaway every week, and have yet to see a code given during the Monday episodes. I have been entering the license plate number and #bandit one in the code box and it seems happy with that.

Posted on December 23, 2013 at 10:19 pm
@Gary Klein:

One other question that I have and was asked before on this blog and not answered: How would a fan go about requesting Burt Reynolds for an autograph request? I tried to find the one true authorized fan site, but there are so many that it is impossible to sort thru and find the right one. I hope that I won’t have to fly down to Jupiter, FL and wait until he comes out to fetch the paper!
Take care,
Gary

@Gary Klein:

Hi Richard,
You got to work with a buddy of mine, Terry Clark in Lake Orion on the Copo build. I missed that episode and I hope they replay it soon on Discovery. Terry eats and sleeps TAs especially black bandit ones, He has had a couple of them thru the years. Did Terry bend your ear and get you thinking about doing your version of Smokey and the the Bandit?? It just seems like a coincidence that you guys made those cool episodes after coming out here.

I wish I got to meet Burt. Grew up with Smokey and the Bandit. Now there’s a chance to own a little piece of custom history! I’m on it! Anyone here want to give me some car building advice though? Seems like the right place to ask. Guess you can just email me? I want to know how I can get started on a build of my own. Something basic. Maybe an old bug? I’m not sure. Army89DeltaBOOM@gmail.com

My Dad and I love the show and loved this episode and live in Jupiter Fl. You should come visit with the car and leave it here :).

Posted on February 5, 2014 at 6:03 pm

IF I win this baddas black car , I will donate it to charity , cause you cant drive a black car in phoenix half the year , plus it too dusty here and I don’t want to be cleaning it all the time. What I would like is your old shop truck but you SOLD it…, HOW in the hell do you put a price on a friend? a workmate, an icon? shame on you Richard, for the love of money. I bet if you ever find a woman DUMB enough to marry you , and you have kids , you`d sell off the little monkey for a profit too, ya think?
We have a 85 Toyota pickup converted to a dually flatbed with 4 Arizona flag painted on her and the back of the seat is a flag also( copper star in the fold down armrest.) I guess their are only two types of people in the world…(ari) ZONIES and those unfortunate enough to hatched in TEXAS. you boys should come to spend a day in our shop in zonieville, and enjoy a “teener”
day ..( 113, 114 , 115,one hundred six TEEN ) and lay on the blacktop to examine a car in the drive way , while the customer bitches that their air is only blowing 75 degrees.(40 degree drop is good)….stick you hand under the hood and I`ll show you “fast and loud” OUCH!!!Love your and your shop , Its dream land for us desert rats.
build suggestion..GET out of Dallas ..escape truck for when the shit hits the fan, fully equipped offensive and defensive of homeland security gooneies. fast loud and bullet proof (literally) do ya wanna see mine?

You gotta make this show run for years. This is my favorite show I’m always waiting for new builds to come out to enjoy the awesome job you guys do. I’ve even got my 2 sons enjoying them as well and there 5 and 6 years old so you have to make this show run for year’s so they could keep enjoying them…GOOD job Gas Monkey

@scott azzopardi:

love the show down here in Australia, love smokey and the bandit and as I drive the big rig down here( 26 meters long or 85ft 4in) across state lines, A black trans am would be just the very best thing in the world to cruise the hi ways, as the hi way patrols cars (smokey s) would have a ball chancing it down. so why don’t you send it down to oz and let me show off the way you do ,
cheers Scott
p.s we like drinking as much beer as you do down here as-well

@Jeremy:

This a an awesome car. My friends mom had one, and it needed restoring. My friend worked and tinkered around with it for a couple years. He wanted so bad to be able to drive it when he turned 16. He was killed in a car accident when he was 15. His parents were going to scrap it, and I said that I would take it instead, since it was his dream to restore it. So it has been sitting in my garage for 17 years now untouched. One day when I can get the finances and time, I will bring his dream to a reality.

@Earl Sewell:

What a cool car… I owned a ’78 Trans Am with a 4 speed manual transmission and a Hurst shifter.
I had it repainted and all the decals except the bird on the hood. It was an awesome car. I never raced it off the line but if we started at 40 or 50 mph and see who hit a 100 first, I was never beat.
I would love to have one again, but I would never race it. Wish I could post a photo of it on this website.

@Greg Hagler:

Richard, love the show, admire you’re focus on the 70s muscle cars, Aaron is fantastic with the deadline jobs, I wish there was talent over here in the mountains like you guys! There’s a lot of nice cars over here but we’ll never see a TV show come out of this area, anyway I’ve met Burt and Loni and what a nice guy, we chatted about the Bandit car and how many they had to have to make those movies, lol I would like to enter the contest as I have never won anything and would turn around and donate it to auction for Brest cancer, my wife’s mother has Brest cancer and now a very dear friend has it also. Thanks and hope the show stays on year after year. Greg.

@JOHAN:

Howzit Richard, The name’s Johan & I live in Johannesburg, South Africa. We get your show on the pay channel this side & I must say it is one the only show’s that I do not miss. I really enjoyed recent shows where you built up the Pontiac for the bet. Intertaning viewing I must say & also well done in getting the car finished complete with Burt Reynolds signiture. Sure plenty of beer will be consumed with the winnings. Also well done to Aaron for getting the shop guy’s operational. Time to tell machanic’s to shape up or ship out. Keep the good times rolling.

Sweet,

Johan
