The Bandit recruits fellow trucker Cledus "Snowman" Snow (Reed) to make the journey with him, with the Bandit's [[CoolCar Pontiac Firebird Trans Am]] acting as a spotter for Snowman's rig. On the journey back, the Bandit picks up a RunawayBride named Carrie (Field), making him the target of the jilted groom's father, [[CorruptHick Sheriff Buford T. Justice]] (Gleason). {{Hilarity|Ensues}} and a chase across the South ensue.
