The star Challenger was recently made into a plastic model kit as well as a large scale diecast model. As in all of these movies, the car is the star.
TV movie "California Kid" featured a pre "Apocalypse Now" Martin Sheen as a visiting hot rodder, who attracts the attention of the poisonous local sheriff, Vic Morrow. As well as Sheen's unltra cool '32 Ford coupe, the police cruiser was also a star. Morrow's ride was a very big motored '57 Plymouth Fury two door - looked and sounded great in all its scenes.
How cool does Sheen look in this scene as he
prepares to go head to head with the local lawman?
I believe all of these movies may be available on dvd and there are scenes from each on YouTube. Sheen being chased by the sheriff down a mountain road is quite exciting.
Any other hidden gems that you know of?
Until next time.........
