The Bandit is hired on to run a tractor trailer full of beer over state lines, in hot pursuit by a pesky sheriff.
When Pat Mckormick's character walks by the Bandit's truck and trailer he says "Any guy that would paint their truck like that would go to a minister's funeral dressed in feathers". Burt Reyonlds did dress in feathers playing a NASCAR driver in Stroker Ace.
Buford T. Justice:

Buford T. Justice: What in the hell is the world coming to?
When Bandit's truck and the Trans-Am pull up to the Coors warehouse in Texarkana, the Trans Am is parked parallel to the curb behind the truck. In the next scene, the Trans-Am is now parked behind the truck at a diagonal angle.
The TV print needed extensive overdubbing to reduce the amount of profanity. In particular, Jackie Gleason's expression "Sum-bitch!" was replaced with "Scum-bum." This new word became a popular catch phrase with kids after the film made its TV debut.
