    The end was good. He swapped it out at the Car wash. Real Smooth. I liked it when the lady saw her car come through and passed out.

    Did ya watch any of the credits? They show "eleanor" later on at some race track. There was stuff written all over it and I believe it was the producer that was doing smoky burnouts and donuts in it. No question it was the same car from the movie...

    Well the first half of the movie is actually pretty much crap. Even by early 70's standards the acting etc etc was really piss poor...

    However, the last 40 minutes is all Mustang chase and IMO is the car chase all others are measured against. Seeing the 'stang hit that pole trying to come off the freeway is brutal...

    Hmmm, apparently a lot of the trivia I had heard about this movie is pretty much true. An example is the light pole sequence. A stunt driver missed his 'mark' causing HR Halicki to end up hitting the pole at 100 mph. This was not intended and Halicki was hurt...but they left it in the movie.

    Halicki compressed 10 vertabrae in the jump scene...got 30 feet high and sailed 128 feet.

    I watched it last night, Holy crap was there alot of damage in that last chase. It lasted forever too. My favorite part is when they were in the caddy dealer they said he couldn't get out and he just kicked it sideways and bumped the police car out of the way and took off real smooth like. I also thought to myself hmmm I wonder if any of them caddys have a 500 in em?
