Fresh from Build a Bandit aka Pontiac Pros.....

To quote Bob Mcelreath self proclaimed owner of both build a bandit, pick a  pony and pontiac pros:. Ebay ID turtlevhare  and eck0211 "We also have a customer, Mr. P, that has a beautiful 1978 Bandit thatís almost completed that has spread some nervous mistruths on him and his attorney, who are too lazy to come see their beautiful Trans Am." Mr. P's car, 2 weeks after that statement was made. you be the judge...(note: engine was supplied by George for his trans am and was built by rock and roll engineering and shipped to banditland)
