The 1970 PONTIAC FIREBIRD TRAN-AM ‘CANNONBALL’ featured in the 1976 American comedy film starring David Carrandine as Coy "Cannonball" Buckman. The movie was based on a real illegal cross-continent road race that took place for a number of years. The scooped and spoilered appeal was pure American muscle car, and more immodest than ever! The standard engine, a 345-horsepower Ram Air 400-cid V-8, furnished low-14-second elapsed times at the dragstrip. That apparently satisfied most buyers, because just 88 of the 3196 Pontiac Trans Ams built that year got the optional Ram Air IV. Rarer still was the Ram Air V which delivered as much as 500 horsepower! All these engines breathed through a new rear-facing shaker scoop designed to capture cool ambient air flow over the hood.
