Trailer Dissection - In Time


This week we're dissecting the trailer for the new sci-fi movie block buster "In Time!" What are we dissecting for? On Screen Cars of course. This trailer is loaded with a number of vehicles from the movie. I took the liberty of snapshoting as many of them as I could. I believe have I identified them well. If there are any corrections let me know! Here's a brief summary of the movie for those of you that haven't seem the film. "When Will Salas is falsely accused of murder, he must figure out a way, with the help of a beautiful hostage, to bring down a system where time is money -- literally -- enabling the wealthy to live forever while the poor, like Will, have to beg, borrow, and steal enough minutes to make it through another day." -InTimeMovie @ YouTube. Interesting enough? Check out the full trailer at the bottom of the post.
1972 Dodge Challenger - Enforcement Vehicle - Interesting grill and visor light bar. 1972 Dodge Challenger - Enforcement Vehicle - Ahh multiples! Solid Custom Wheels 1972 Dodge Challenger - Enforcement Vehicle - Custom tail panel reminds me of a 2nd Generation Firebird/Trans Am. Jaguar E-Type - Too sophisticated for James Bond, but perfect for Will Salas. Jaguar E-Type 1966 Lincoln Continental - Love the rear suicide doors on these cars. 1966 Lincoln Continental IMDB intimemovie.com YouTube

Tommy Boy - 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX


Holy Schnikes, On Screen Cars is featuring the Plymouth Belvedere GTX from Tommy Boy! We could only hope that Chris Farley would have reacted that way to this post. We'll do our best to honor his memory. But let's talk about the car! If you've seen the movie Tommy Boy, you would agree that it deserves mention on this site. The two main characters are seen in the car through out most of the film. For the benefit of those who have not seen the film, I will offer a short spoiler-free summary. Movie Summary Tommy Callahan Jr. (played by Chris Farley) has just finished college and returns home to Ohio to work at his father's automotive parts manufacturing plant, Callahan Auto. Shortly after Tommy returns home his dad Tom Sr. gives some news that he will be getting re-married to a younger lady (who happens to be a gold digger). The wedding takes place with tragedy striking as Big Tom Callahan Sr. dies during the reception. The company is in jeopardy and Tommy Boy decides to hit the road with his buddy Richard (David Spade) in the GTX to see if they can save the company from going under. That's about the extent I can go without spoiling the movie. Don't forget there's more. Looking for the movie? You can find it in our store! This is probably the last scene where the Cragar SS wheels are still looking good. In this scene Tommy was trying to get the drivers door shut after bending it backwards. Early in the movie, Richard says "I dropped in a 440 Magnum with a six-pack." I hate to burst Richard's bubble, but in the clip above you can that the engine has an air-cleaner for a single four barrel, 440 Commando. After looking at a real 440 Six Pack breather you can see the difference. The engine is also a "Commando" and not a "Magnum." Keep in mind that these cars came stock with either a 440 Super Commando or optional 426 Hemi. It's not completely Hollywood's fault. It's possible that multiple cars were used. The un-damaged version of the car could have a non-stock 440 Magnum with a Six Pack. The missing door was replaced with a child safety gate, like the one seen here. The door was later replaced by a piece of card board. You can also see that the convertible top has been replaced with a blue tarp. That over pass reminds of the Blues Brothers. Final Thoughts Tommy Boy is one of the funniest Chris Farley movies of all time. Farley and Spade always come through in every film they're in together. Far as the car factor goes, I'd have to say it's a ten. It's not popular as a car movie. But I think it diffidently qualifies as one. One last interesting fact before we sign off. This isn't the last movie David Spade drives a 1967 Plymouth GTX. Mater of fact, Spade drives one later in Joe Dirt. Don't worry, On Screen Cars will be bringing that car movie as well! See ya next time. Reference: IMDB, YouTube (Trailer), Wikipedia (GTX)
