On October 8, DIY launches the Burt Builds a Bandit contest where web users are directed to log into Heavy.com, and upload You-tube style videos explaining why they should win the limited edition BRE Trans Am.
"In 1977, the water cooler conversation focused ... on a hot little car called Bandit. Thirty years later, car and film enthusiasts alike still have a passion for this incredible vehicle and the impact it had on pop culture," says Kathleen Finch, DIY Network's general manager. "To be able to give away one of these incredible custom vehicles to a lucky DIY viewer is just icing on the cake." The contest dates are from October 8-November 30. "The winner will be announced during a one-hour recap special of the series on Friday, Dec. 14, 10 p.m. ET," says DIY.
