Smokey and the Bandit

Oh, and the movie was filmed locally around Atlanta. The scene where Buford is in the truck stop with the car on a jack was at a truck stop that was at I-85 and Pleasant Hill Rd. but is long gone. They filmed a scene at a station on the side of Ga. 85 below Fayetteville (just up the road from my in-laws house) that was cut from the final movie. My wife said they spruced up the place and painted the storage tanks behind the station and then dropped the scene.
