Here is an ad posted in the Sept 23-29, 1976 Atlanta Constitution newspaper. I wonder if this was the same ad John Schneider saw when he skipped school to head over to the Lakewood Fairgrounds and ended up in the movie.
I own a couple of Pace CB143 radios mentioned in the give aways. Nice units! It has the same microphone as the one used in the movie.
Another thing I noticed is that the CB143 is about the same size and shape as the Pace 10-4U scanner that is so hard to find. They even share the same knobs.
