    Although for some reason the chase makes me think of Bullit.
    Great stuff. I never saw this movie, but it kind of reminds me of some of the scenes in Duel
    (one of Steven Spielberg's early movies starring Dennis Weaver)
    I wonder how many Commodore A's they used in that scene? After the car bounces down the
    hill, the front fender is almost falling off, but it is miraculously fixed in the next shot.
    Cheers,

    The Duel is a good one too, and with a nice looking Valiant. There was something fishy in the end when the trucker drove his truck off the cliff, If I remember correctly it was a different truck than the one he drove earlier until the end scenes.
    I hope they used as few Commodores as possible, and that they were base models and not GS/E's like the emblems suggest.
    Seems like the car was made of the same tin as Christine, or it's a case of a large dose of artistic liberty.

    And now that a -58 Plymouth was mentioned, here is a chase between a -58 Belvedere and a -66 Admiral: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AGK...e_gdata_player

    Wow, while I know Cold Sweat pretty good (I have it on DVD), "The Master Touch" (German: "Ein achtbarer Mann") was unknown to me. Poor Opel in this movie, they really finished him off! I'll try to find the movie online somewhere the upcoming weekend.

    My GT was used three times in filming the movie "Vault." It only appears once as a blur in the background as the heist truck is driving to the robbery scene.

    That was cool, thanks Gary. I went back and read all the old posts from Gary's original. Being new to the forum, that was fun to see how many movies our cars have been in.
    By the way, Gene, you are very good at spotting Opels. I love that movie, The Gathering. I have seen that movie several times and never picked up on the Opel in the
    opening credits. I saw the white corvette and thought you were mistaken until I replayed several times and finally saw the orange Opel GT. It was only on screen for
    a split second. Great catch Gene. Now I really like that movie.
