Now we are talking hyperspace! (Race across the desert)
Hey, did anybody else dig the race across the desert scene in this movie? I swear, the guys who made this movie were definitely trying to say that the old-school muscle machines can definitely get you where you need to go...if you're trying to save the world that is!
Mike, Vinnie and Ellie hopped into Michael's GTO and quickly took off down the highway in an attempt to keep the quantum device's energy from reaching the power station, thus creating a bigger wormhole. At first, they're only doing 100 m.p.h. and Vinnie groans, "Aw come on Mikey, I thought your G-Toe had more meat under the hood than this!" The energy already had a headstart and unless Mike pulled something outta his hat, the town was finished. When Vinnie says 'hit the blower' Micahel does and the car takes off like a lightning bolt! My eyes just lit up in amazement as the muscle machine began to pass the power lines at 120 m.p.h.! I also loved the part where Ellie is sitting in awe and says, "Michael, I don't know about this! This is too fast for me!" and Vinnie tells her it's just like and E-ride at Disneyland. That was funny!
The GTO definitely is a high-performance machine in this movie. Anybody else loved this scene, please post! I'd love to hear your responses on this scene!
