Sorry guys, but I am changing my order tommorrow to add the Transformer Edition. My car was similiar anyways..... I think that it is a subtle package and really doesn't stand out from a distance. Those that like the Transformers will identify with the badging and those that don't won't have a clue that anything is different. I like it because it will be just one more thing that makes my car unique, but still factory. The price is really fair since I would have paid up to $3000 or so to have this package. It will always show up on my build sheet, which is something that the fakes will never have. This car will be a collectible down the road! Perfect or not! It's unique! Kind-of like those ugly $5000 rimms that guys are adding to their RS packages.....I can see replacing special rimms for $5000 but some people do. That's their choice and may make their car worth more some day.

By the way, the "Smokey and the Bandit" cars were out before the movie. Pontiac just offered up the TA and the rest is history. (The 76 TA had the bird and gold pin striping) Burt's was a 77.
