Movie: The Hunter (1980)

The '79 Trans Am was one of the many cars Thorson used to snag fugitives. During the film he rents this Firebird much to his dismay, asking for an older, less flashy car—it's hard to catch criminals while your driving this menacing whip. His plea fell on deaf ears and the car eventually gets blown up with dynamite. McQueen stepped out of it to search for the Branch brothers, but they eventually steal the Pontiac. This particular model featured a 3.8-liter, V6 engine and no Firebird decal on the hood.
