Pontiac Trans Am Hard Drive: Hitachi and the Bandit

by Paul Strauss

There are few cars quite as iconic as the late 1970s Pontiac Trans Am Black Bandit, complete with gold eagle wing hood details and a T-Top. As it was the car that Burt Reynolds drove in Smokey and the Bandit, it was certainly the chick magnet back in the day. Heck, it got Sally Field in the car, didn’t it?

So if you’re feeling East Bound and Down, or just into retro geekery, you might want to skip that hard drive purchase and check this out. It’s a 1:18 die-cast metal scale model (almost a foot long) of a 1979 Trans Am, modded to cram a USB hard drive inside. It comes complete with gold and silver WS6 snowflake rims and is the only Pontiac I know of that can store files. Inside, it has a Hitachi 500GB hard drive, which isn’t huge by today’s standards, but should be plenty for most of us. And besides, you’re only going to use this thing to impress the ladies, right?

The 1979 Trans Am hard drive comes courtesy of  Etsy seller Coast2CoastDeals. It’s a one-of-a-kind ride and will set you back $275 (USD) if you’re ready to evade some smokeys with style. Mustache sold separately.
