lol, I know it. They kinda got the Grand Villes sound right though, because thats about how mine sounds, but I sure dont drive it like that. Dang I wish mine was that nice before they crashed it up.

Yep...saw that too....the whole explosion scene is so fake....the continuity is so bad here....the car that explodes before being hit was at 1:42 the cop car....and you can actually see the explosive go off on the pass side as the film was shot from, whereas the other car hit it from the opposite side. There's also no driver in the cop car as it skidden seconds before being hit. But if you notice it shows another shot of the same car exploding before it even skids.

Also if you go to 1:36 you can see the 1970 Trans AM is just upside down and not on fire, whereas it was shown exploding into a ball of fire seconds earlier which is what caused the pile up to start with.

But at least the blonde in the back of the van was pretty damn cute.

That's a good chase. I looked for a link, but couldn't find one without the explicit language.
