The cars in this movie.


I remember as a kid about 6 or 7 seeing a movie i think is this one. Is this the one with the 41 willys coupe and they take a motor out of a cop car and put it in it? As i said this is about 25 years ago and the memory is a little foggy now!

Yep. My dad had a blue plymouth like the one in the movie, but traded it for a *beep* 80's model dodge truck.

My husband has mentioned this to me several times. At the tender age of 40, he is a bit fuzzy on the details. Couldn't even give me a plotline or name any of the actors. Just that Willys!

I am glad that at least I can give him a title!

I was 12 when this came out. I saw it twice and never forgot it. It's funny, now I recognize more of the actors like Grant Goodey, Robert Culp, Parrnel Roberts and Robin Mattson from General Hospital. I was a model builder at the time and looked all over the place for a '41 Willys Coup. Never found one.
