Ack! Gary, give a spoiler warning if you are going to ruin the end of the movie for everyone!

BTW, it was a Challenger R/T, not a Camaro.

To be honest, I'm not really a MOPAR guy, I'm a Corvette guy, but my dream non-Corvette muscle car is a plum '71 Cuda convertible. Yeah, that'd be sweeeet...

When I was a kid, there used to be two Superbirds in town-one green, called the Judge, the other was a plum-ish purple called Grape Ape. Just down my street was an ass with a 69-71 Charger in the driveway that just sat. In his garage was the Hemi to it. It also just sat. To the best of my knowledge, they are still sitting there to this day.

Sonofagun... That's interesting. They used a Camaro as a stunt car to replace the Challenger when they crashed it.

WOW! I loved that link! I never saw Vanishing Point nor paid any mind to the it's cult status. After browing the link, I will rent the DVD. Also, I might just buy the adult collectible R/T I keep seeing at our local department store. Thanks for intruducing me to the movie. I'll respond with my thoughts after I see it.

The car chases in Ronin were awesome. The latest Matrix had a great one. (Although a lot was CGI) In one scene the camera went right through a semi.
