yeah it had a documentary  on the car on the DVD they said that He had the body panels taken off like roof and quarters and ran full cage the length of the car in the subframe to stiffen car up that one jump scene is done in way slow motion and it's amazing whne you see that car hit the ground and watch the whole car RIPPLE!
they said there was a Van that followed the Mustang around just to replace parts. The movie really reminded me of the Game DRIVER for the original Playstation wonder where they got the idea!

I saw the original many years ago.
Then saw it again rescently at Chryco's!
And a while ago I saw and recorded Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry off TV. I already have Vanishing Point and Bullit on video. I saw The Fast and the Furious at the theatre and will buy the video. It wasn't real great, but gotta have it for the collection!

Speaking of Movies.....

Anyone seen "Fast Company"?

Do you own a copy I could get? A great scene with a Funny Car on the street! And of course a Black 71 Dodge Demon!  ;D

Leads?  ???

Thanks Big Mike!

Rev-It-Up,
I saw it when I was 16 yrs. on TV yet, "John Saxon" of Enter the Dragon (Bruce Lee, Martial Artist fame...) was in it! It's really hoakey, but have to have it in my collection! It's Classic!

Plus I lived in the location the movie was mostly shot in!
The Race Track was my home during the summers as a spectator. I have several old colour photos of the now de-funct track with awesome Funny Cars driven by now "Old Timers"! But Original Pioneers of the sport of Drag Racing.
