On est combien de membres présentement?

En passant, ce film est basé sur une histoire vraie mais la voiture dans laquelle était cachée la drogue n'était pas une Lincoln mais une Buick Invicta 1960.

they featured the chase sequence in a movie making documentary and said they filmed it with undercranking (ie speed up the film) to make it look more frantic.

Background vehicles. Some may have been worth listing but because of the sheer number of one-star vehicles on the page I decided to leave them here.

I think that after achiu31's updates, this is one of our best pages. Our flagship, if you will.

Nice :) The second and third thumbnail has the incandescent light bulb is probably made exclusively for the New York City Transit Authority.

One of the member do have the actual incandescent light bulbs as posted at NYC transit bulbs.

The old black car is a 1954 Chrysler New Yorker De Luxe, noteworthy for its age

dont know if its true but i heard that some filming was done without permission, guess they figured no one would notice "just another crazy driver"!

Why wasn't the R-40M and R-32 subway cars featured in the film not mentioned above?

True Fact most viewers know: The 1968 Ford Torino Hardtop Sedan that was featured into crashing the 1971 Pontiac LeMans Sedan was actually not supposed to be apart of the film since the Torino driver never knew that they were filming in that section of New York City, so they accidentally went in and crashed. However, the directors and writers kept it in because of how realistic it is.
