Trivia:
This film is based partly on the life of director H.B. Halicki, who moved to Los Angeles from Dunkirk, New York, to start a junkyard business and ultimately become a prominent movie director. All of lead character Harlan Hollis's business, ranch and home locations are Halicki's actual properties, as well as all of the props/vehicles he uses and owns.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Harlan drives up onto the sidewalk in the Corvette, the patrol car behind him is clearly pulling away from being stopped alongside the parking spaces, rather than coming from the lane at speed. Also, traffic can be seen moving freely in the opposite direction in the background, when the whole road is supposed to be blocked by police cars and the car transporter.See more »

More of a follow-up than a sequel, but still fun., 24 January 1999
Author: Jason C. Atwood from Suffolk, Virginia

H.B. Halicki, who thrilled many with some of the most exciting crashes in GONE IN 60 SECONDS, had this follow-up a few years later called THE JUNKMAN. This time, it's more amusing and hilarious than the previous film, and you will expect both more and the same with the almost nonstop car chase action. New in Halicki's film are big explosions, gunslinging, and a femme fatale out to catch Harlan B. Hollis' butt (he also acted). Don't be perturbed, though. It isn't the original movie, but given the notorious stuntwork and a sense of humor, it still has its credentials. You'll be amazed by some camera work on the low-flying planes and a never-before-seen idea of autos driving over the front hoods! As films like this go, it doesn't hang onto any new innovations, and many of the car crashes are nothing to get nutty about. Sometimes, the cars crash directly on purpose, which is lame. Halicki's talent in making movies shouldn't be denied, as logos of GONE IN 60 SECONDS appear almost every time. That includes a familiar prop, the beaten-up yellow '73 Mustang he named "Eleanor"! This one's different, but it won't leave you disappointed. If nobody can agree with Leonard Maltin over THE JUNKMAN, who will?
