What car is this coming off the cliff?

Postby James_kr » Thu Dec 08, 2005 11:52 pm

I have seen this in Trust Doesn't Rust and another episode where kitt jumps over to the beach where Michael is and it looks nothing close to kitt or karr and probably some cheap junk they used to make it look like a big stunt. What do you think?

That was a custom 1971 Lincoln from the movie called "THE CAR"

it was about a possesed car. Similar to Christine but made before
that one. They just used the scene from the movie. I believe
they used it twice in the series. Once for KARR and once for another
crash.

Here is what it looked like.

Here is some info on it as well.

"THE CAR"
Designed for the movie "The Car" starring James Brolin. Made from a 1971 Lincoln. Fenders were 20 gauge steel shaped over the original body. The grill was hand made from square steel tubing. 4 bumpers made from heavy 18 gauge steel. Seven inch single headlights sunk behind the grill and fender. Body was raised to upper doorline. Four radius wheel wells around a six inch reverse deep chrome wheels and Goodrich tires.

Top was chopped 4 inches with all black transparent windows. Full body roll bars installed over and around stunt driver. A steel tube canon was installed on passenger side which had a telephone pole inside and steel cap which housed dynamite and black powder. When the stunt man rolled the car he would trigger the tube telephone pole by igniting the dynamite which drove the pole into the ground and roll the car 5 times. Finished with 20 coats of black pearl lacquer. A total of four were made.

Lets settle this for once and for all. The scene we see KARR supposed to go over the cliff, is a scene taken from the movie "The Car" period!

Read the post. They built 4 cars for the movie "THE CAR" One was
used to drive it off the cliff. They recycled the footage on Knight Rider
of the CAR driving off the edge.

Its not to hard to comprehend......... :?
