’58 Plymouth Fury

It reminded me of Stephen King’s Christine and the Buried Car publicity stunt in Tulsa that backfired (that was a ’57 Belvedere but they look alike). It’s a battleship like the early ’70s Bonneville I got to drive once; I’d like something a little smaller for a daily driver but the same style.

To achieve the special effects of the car regenerating itself after a smash-up, at least one car was crushed by hydraulic jacks mounted inside the car, which literally pulled the car in on itself. The film was run backward to give the illusion of the car restoring itself.
