Throughout the movie, Sheriff Justice drives a 1980 Pontiac Bonneville. When Mean Joe Green turns it over, when his car goes into the river in the drawbridge scene, and when the Bandit jumps over it in the Miami warehouse parking lot, the car is a 1976 Bonneville.

As the Bendit prepares to leave after setting up the diversion with Terry Bradshaw, you can see two crew members and a piece of equipment reflected in the driver side door. Look for a man wearing a blue wind breaker jacket and sunglasses to be reflected in the car.

Revealing mistakes 

When Buford's sheriff's car drops into the river from the bridge, it is clear that there is a mannequin placed in the driver's seat. The left arm is fixed along the driver side door, and never moves during the fall.

When Justice first encounters the bandit, and talks to him through a loudspeaker, he does not push the push-to-talk button. If he had locked it in talk mode, it would have picked him up telling his son to shut up.
