The DIY Network's airing a five show segment of its Celebrity Rides program devoted to big Burt and his new Bandit. The Burt in question is of the Reynolds variety, and the Bandit is the YearOne TransAm restomod project. That is, the Burt Reynolds Edition TransAm, which YearOne creates from the bones of rescued Firebirds and sells at a nearly $130,000 base. It's called "Burt Builds a Bandit," and although Burt likely doesn't actually build the Bandit, we're sure it would be another guilty pleasure of Alfred Hitchcock, if the rotund one was still among the rolling.
