For me, a blast from the past!!!
9 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Can anyone help me? Couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw this movie. Of extra special interest to me is the Chevy Impala ( the star of the movie ) which I would bet my life on being once owned by my late father. If anyone out there has any info about the car, scrapped or still on the road, whatever, I would love to hear from you. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the film until the guys stopped seeing eye to eye and started to get a bit rough with her on those narrow streets, I was watching through nail bitten fingers!! When my dad sold the Chevy I was about twelve or so, and I am now almost forty.I have searched my memory and double checked my photos and I am convinced she is the one. If you can please help. Many thanks, Ian.
