I think you have a problem, notRod: first you tell us that this precise car (nicknamed "The Thunderbird" in the movie) is a Victress S-1. And you're right, according to all sources and ladawri.com. Then you tell us it's an S-5 (a model that didn't exist when they shot the movie, by the way).

From fiberglasssportscars.com:

"The Victress S-1, a beautiful little roadster that had the looks to rival any European car of the day. One of the production models even starred in Johnny Dark, a 1952 movie about a cross country road race, starring Tony Curtis and Piper Laurie. The Victress was called the Thunderbird in the movie and shared its spotlight with a Grantham Stardust, Kurtis Sportster, Glasspar, and of course, the major star of the film, a Woodill Wildfire (Idaho Special). If you have an interest in these cars, you should certainly get a copy of the film to view. Fred Roth"

This should also take care of the stars question...

This is a Woodill Wildfire. The picture is taken from the scene, where they go to respray the car in red for the race. But this black car differs from the red race car. Therefore I listed it on a sepparate page: /vehicle.php?id=919705#Comment1964072
