Big Enos and Little Enos have opened a seafood restaurant and want to promote it in their usual fashion. The Bandit is unavailable this time, though, so they enlist Buford. "Trigger" is brought out of mothballs, a large fish is strapped to the roof of the car, and the new Bandit is on his way on another wild cross-country run. But where there is the Bandit, there is Sheriff Buford T. Justice. Written by

During Cledus' initial drive of the Trans-Am, he drives past some farm girls and waves out of the open roof at them. One interior shot of him waving shows him sitting on the right-hand side of the car, immediately followed by an exterior shot of him screeching to a halt which shows him sitting on the left-hand side of the car. Either the film was reversed, or the film makers used a mix of left-hand-drive and right-hand-drive cars. See more
