This is one of the first movies to feature an airbag being used in a car. General Motors automobiles sold from 1974-76 had the Air Cushion Restraint System which was a regular production option (RPO code AR3) for full size Buick, Oldsmobile, and Cadillac vehicles (the police vehicle seen in the film was a 1974 Oldsmobile Delta 88). This system did not have shoulder harnesses but retained lap belts (the Oldsmobile Toronado of the same era also had a passenger side airbag). The footage of the airbag in use was sent to the U.S. Congress so they could pass a law (the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991) dictating that airbags should be installed in all automobiles manufactured after September 1, 1998. Allstate Insurance provided the Oldsmobile depicted in the film. See more

[Rankin notices Alex Warren's Lincoln Continental driving away
Hey! Don't I know the driver of that Lincoln?
Why, certainly. That's Alex Warren.
File a report on that draft-dodging, commie son of a bitch.
Why, his great-grandfather was Robert E. Lee's adversary.
Yeah, well, I'd still like to kick his ass clean from here to Virginia.
