Continuity: Vince Noonan is trying to escape in a 1961 Chevrolet. The p.o.v. shot of him crashing through the barricade is not a '61 Chevy, and the car driving through the barricade is a white 1961 Mercury. Also during the car chase, Torello is driving a 1959 Ford Galaxie, but when Noonan runs on foot, the car Danny is shining the spot light from a a 1959 Ford Custom (watch for the change in the chrome trim on the side of the cars).See more »
