The day you've always dreamed of

"Smokey and the Bandit" comes to life in Hot Springs Monday and Tuesday, May 11 and 12. That's when Bandit Run ’09, a four-state re-enactment of the chase in the greatest movie ever made, comes to town.

Along with the Bandit (Trans Ams will never die, Detroit!), there'll be "a meticulously re-created semi-trailer," presumably with stagecoach chase scene and all, just like the one Snowman drove and 60 more cars in the convey.

The vehicles should get to Transportation Plaza in Hot Springs around 3:30 p.m. on Monday and will be on display until about 6 p.m. It's free to gawk.

It's awesome to remember that the plot is all about bootlegging Coors, which couldn't be sold or shipped east of the Mississippi because of arcane liquour laws. Was Coors really that much better than everything else in 1977?
