My two all-time favourite movies, Smokey and the Bandit, and Back to the Future. Well anything with Burt Reynolds in actually but the sight of that Firebird out running Sheriff Buford T. Justice always had me replicating it as a kid.
That particular Matchbox car that closely replicated the Pontiac Firebird was my all-time favourite toy car and I can't bring myself to restore that but leave that for the memories it gave me. Instead I was at a toy collector fair when I saw this 'Tony the Tiger' version you could only get with saving Kellogg's Frosties cereal tokens for a whopping 30p! Wondering what to do I saw my other favourite TV car mash-up I'd done behind it and my homage to the legendary Burt Reynolds was born.... I present to you the 'Time Bandit'
