Hal Needham? Maybe some of the footage of the race in "Smokey and the Bandit 2"? Found some other great videos of Snowman's trailer while there, too! One to definitely check out is "Snowman's Trailer test run part 2" Hopefully this link will take you there!

Yup. This race took place the year following the filming of SATB 2. The do show footage of Kenny "Special 'K'" Farmer's bad wreck that was used in the movie.

Don't ask me how I came across that... :angry:

Hey Matt, this may be a dumb question but, you do realize that the SB trailer in that video is a replica of the movie trailer that was built just a few years ago, right?

Yep, I did, but it's still a cool video! :) The modern Pete gives it away, and I think somewhere in the related videos there was one showing the redo.
