Trivia:
When viewed after director H.B. Halicki's second movie, The Junkman (1982), this film becomes an interesting piece of meta-fiction. Most of the movie is a shortened version of Halicki's first film, Gone in 60 Seconds (1974), with a new, lengthy opening sequence and various other new scenes which create a new subplot surrounding Hoyt Axton and the LAPD Auto-Theft Division. In The Junkman (1982), Gone in 60 Seconds (1974) is presented as a fictional film in post-production - this movie's new opening sequence is partially seen being shot in The Junkman (1982), during which Christopher Stone's character comments that Halicki (himself playing a fictional director) was "not excited" by the first three minutes of the original film (train crash investigation), and is therefore filming an entirely new sequence. As such, this film is the result of what is seen being shot in The Junkman (1982), and thus takes place in a different universe. In reality, Halicki sought to improve upon the original Gone in 60 Seconds (1974) by re-releasing it with these new scenes, which are far more extravagant and costly than what was originally shot. Without the different title, it could almost be seen as a "director's cut" of the original movie.See more »

Detroit Iron being smashed at its finest!, 15 July 2006
Author: ejprice from Los Angeles, California

One scene in the film shows an auto dealer billboard at his Buick Dealership saying "'73 model clearance, save $$$" I would say the person that commented it was a 1974 film that had scenes added would be correct. If you look at the cars in the film none are newer than 1974. Don't know how they came up with a 1983 release date unless it was released that year and was 10 years later than it was made. A great chase movie with real mayors and city folks in the movie. Don't think you could film that chase scene today with insurance and all. I used to live down in Torrance, CA and recognized the area and streets they used during the filming.
