A pretty good 1970s car chase :D

Just watched it on YouTube. It was pretty wild stuff, although the direction was a bit sloppy and I didn't like the dubbed-over 4 cylinder engine sound effects.

The YouTube version also had the cop interrogating the suspect after pulling him out of his crashed car...both were so perfectly calm after this high speed chase and crash that it was utterly hilarious. :lol:

Geico is using clips from the chase scene in their latest commercial. It drove me CRAZY the first time I saw it; I knew I recognized the scenes!

In the actual movie footage, I can spot a 1974-1976 Ford (Gran Torino) Elite, a 1966 Dodge Coronet, a 1973 Plymouth Fury, and a Datsun.

In the close-ups of the "drivers" there are modern cars in the background.

There are a lot more cars in this film than are noted here. I'll add a selection.

tonyrome, could you please provide image replacements for the cars that were previously listed before you added more, because your images are better quality.

Also, when adding a movie in non-HD quality please resize the images to 720px or less. Here 640 would have been most appropriate. I resized them for you here.

Will do.

OK, new images will be 640 pixels width for this film.

I'll have to go through the film again but will try to do that later today. Should I post new images, copying the vehicle detail from the existing images or do you want me to post the new images here, within the comments section?

Upload them as thumbnails on the existing pages. One of the mods will input them from there.

Work is now complete. I have uploaded new images for each of those already posted plus added more, which had been missed by the original poster.

Here's another Remy Julienne sequence from the main chase.

As mentioned by Skid, following a massive crash...

@Classics fan - Are you planning on doing replacement pics? Your quality is much better than the current ones.

Ok, I can do that. I have to post the new pictures on the vehicle's page, right?

This Mustang is too small, but it seems me very interesting with this decal on it.
