The 1983 movie Smokey & The Bandit Part 3. Any day a Trans Am has to share the silver screen with a plastic fish, is not a good one. What is this, if not cult?:D

With all the stars that have been dying recently, maybe it's time to celebrate the great man's films, while he is still alive. :)

It's a forgotten film now, but there was a B movie comedy from 1983 called "Joysticks" which starred Joe Don Baker. It was a good summary of the arcade video game craze. I don't think there is an...

I will mention The Wraith, a sort of horror, revenge tale starring members of Hollywood's "Brat Pack", and probably the only time a 1980s Chrysler product or a mullet looked menacing.:D

In terms of Mopar I have always liked the Dodge Aspen R/T, Plymouth Volare Road Runner twins, you could still get a 360 ci motor in those as late as 1979 MY. Hard to find today though.
