Re: Since you brought up old movies...

Ah, two of my favorite subjects rolled into one: Old cars and old movies. Here we go: '57 Plymouth 4-Dr H/T in "The Onion Field" '58 Plymouth 4-Dr Sedan (cop car) in "The Thing that Couldn't Die (also a MST3K episode) '57 Plymouth Ragtop in the Ed Wood 'classic' "Plan 9 from Outer Space" AND: There is a 1958 Plodge (Plymouth rear, Dodge front...Canadian, maybe?) in a really cheesy movie from the late '70's. It's a suspense film about three people being chased through British Columbia by bad guys who are driving the black Plodge. The older "good guy" is an Indian who uses his mystical powers to build an invisible wall across the highway, which the Plodge unwittingly plows into and is destroyed. A sad end for the car, but it was a pretty neat effect in an otherwise lousy movie. Trouble is, I can't remember the name of the film. If this sounds familiar and you can provide the info, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks! -Grayson
