In the scene at Guero's restaurant, the girls drink margaritas out of traditional stemmed margarita glasses. The real Guero's serves margaritas in standard round glasses. Also, although the exteriors were filmed on location at the real-life Guero's, the soundstage-shot interiors do not match any part of the real Guero's. See more »

In the OPENING credits during the prologue driving sequence, after "Kurt Russell in" there is a quick two-or-three frame color animation of the title "Quentin Tarentino's Thunder Bolt" which cuts immediately to a simple grainy white-on-black title screen that says "Death Proof". See more »
Many Quentin Tarantino fans were disappointed by this film. Actually I don't understand why. It's a typical Tarantino's film. Like Jackie Brown was an imitation of blaxploitation films, Kill Bill was an imitation of samurai films, this film is an imitation of 70's car chase films. Probably the most known example of these films would be Mad Max, but there were lot's of them, I've seen some on TV channel Movies for Man 2. And yes, it's an imitation not a parody like Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror which was more a parody. The characters of this movie are girls with a very manly characters who hang out with a pretty womanish guys. That's kinda unusual neither in films neither in real life and that's also is very typical for Tarantino films. And of course there is Stuntman Mike a psycho killer, played by Kurt Russell, who was very good in his role. So don't get fulled by bad reviews, this movie is a masterpiece.
