The truck that Spanky Frank McRae borrows from "Old Pete" is the same truck driven by Lincoln Hawk Sylvester Stallone for most of the movie Over the Top (1987). You can even see "Hawk Hauling" on the door as Spanky climbs of the cab during the rescue of Jimmy from Runaway recovery expert Putnam. See more »
During the "Send Me An Angel" segue there is a scene showing Sam and Nick in the truck traveling. If you look closely that is the same exact scene from earlier in the movie before they got the truck damaged. See more »

Being 6 when this movie came out, ALREADY obsessed with Nintendo, I wanted to see this movie so bad when it came out. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see it in the theater. But I saw it on video and checked it out like 20 times seriously. Watching it today it seems a little hokey, but still it brings me back to the days when video games were user friendly and fun.
