A different version of the film exists. The earlier version has several scenes not used in the released version. Stills and footage from the alternate version can be found on the 25th Anniversary DVD by going to the Credits screen, highlighting Main Menu, then pressing up. A fast slide show of the early print will be shown. See more »

[Mustang crashes into a light pole]
Jesus Christ, he just hit a damn pole! Turn aroud, turn around! We've got him now!
Male police dispatcher:
Attention all units, suspect vehicle has TA'd with light pole at Harbor Freeway northbound and Carson Street offramp. Pursuit is terminated.
[Mustang roars off up offramp]
Male police dispatcher:
That is negative - pursuit is not terminated, repeat, not terminated.

If you've seen the remake of Gone In 60 Seconds (not a bad movie either) then you must see this outstanding original. Unfortunately, a movie nowadays could never be done like this. H.B. "Toby" Halicki had a dream and he certainly accomplished it here. He must have had more connections than the Gotti Family. It's good to have connections. You take care of people and they take care of you. Toby certainly took care of people and was given the freedom to make this high octane movie the way he wanted to. He had a magnificent collection of cars, among many other items, and used them all in this movie. He bought cars simply to destroy in the movie. He did his own amazing stunt driving, produced, directed, and everything in this movie. Though no one was a professional actor everyone performed well. This isn't an oscar-winning movie, but it's certainly amazing to see what had to be done to make this movie happen. I think this movie is slowly starting to become a cult classic. I can find it in any store nowadays, along with his other few great movies. If you're a fan of the car chase, you'll love this movie for the realism of the impressive 40 minute car chase at the end of the movie. It is AWESOME! Best thing since Bullitt with Steve McQueen. It's great considering you didn't have the special effects. Enjoy the movie! It's a must see!
