Is this thing bad or what? Car lovers and “Smokey and the Bandit” lovers, a limited edition of the beloved Firebird Trans Am is back!

The company Trans Am Depot has created 77 of the “Bandit Edition” cars, all signed by “Smokey and the Bandit” star Burt Reynolds.

The car was introduced over the weekend at the New York Auto Show.

Pontiac produced the Trans Am from 1967 to 2002, but stopped production in 2009. Afterwards, Trans Am Depot licensed the name and logo from GM so they could produce custom Trans Ams built from Chevy Camaros.

The price tag on one of the new “Bandit” Trans Ams is about $115,000.

We will be humming “East Bound and Down” for the rest of the day.
