I Saw Torque Thrust II's In a movie set in the 50's

I just thought this was funny. I was at the movies last week watching "Walk the line" A movie about Johnny Cash's life. An excellent movie! The seine was near the beginning, and was set in the 50's. Cash was walking into the recording studio, and in the background across the street set a neat looking old wagon with a shinny set of Torque Thrust II's on it. I started laughing. But of course no one else got it. Well anyway they didn't start making those wheels until sometime in the 90's I think. I thought it was kinda a big slip up for a movie this big and 10 years in the making. Anyone else saw out of place cars or parts in a movie?

Torq Thrust's came out in '56. The movie is set in '55. Small mistake happens to the best of them.

The original Torq-Thrusts are old rims,they just got big again a few years back.



"Cherokee Kid" that Sinbad movie set in the Old West has a scene where a stagecoach is coming through a pass,in the reflection of the windows on the coach,you can clearly see a Chevy Dually,and the film crew.Cool mistake.

Relax man, I'm not slammin' anybody, just crackin' wise. Yes, if it makes you feel any better, TT-II's are a spin off of the old stuff.

There are alot of car blooper in movies. One of the earliest ones is in the movie "Thunder Road" with Robert Mitchum. My uncle told me that the ignition key location in the year of car (Mercury or Ford, cant' remember), is in the wrong spot.

In that old Chuck Norris classic, Good Guys Wear Black, the interior color of the firebird he's driving changes colors a few times.

I think there are some miscues in the movie American Graffiti also.

The Dodge Challenger in the movie, Vanishing Point, is actually a Camaro in the crash scene.

The ones that really get me are movies place in the past and there are late model cars in the scenes that weren't in production then.


I'm sure I've made some errors above, so you guys are welcome to correct me.

Brian

The Wraith,shows several scenes where the yellow Firebird revs up,and throughout the movie when it is focusing on it,the blades on the bugcatcher NEVER open.Sweet stupidity.I have not seen it in years,but bet you can tell where the blower is attached to the exterior of the hood.

Smokey and the Bandit,the 1st one,watch the gauges when it pans in on them during in car shots.Now I am going to make alot of people go put that in the DVD or VCR just to see it.

The scene in Gone in 60 Seconds (New One) When Memphis and Kip are driving together in the chevelle before getting shot to bits, you see big ugly headrests behind them off of a newer car as they are driving. When the car stops and they bail, headrests are gone (Car change).

take my car

One of the strangest things I notice,is when a bad guy wants your car. Usually while stopped in traffic,they run up and pull you out of your car. The car doesn't move! Guess all of us kindly put it in park or neutral before donating!
