Best Car Chase EVER
From the comedy 'Short Time' with Dabney Coleman, Matt Frewer and Teri
Garr. Overall, considering all factors, I find this the best car chase
scene ever filmed.
NOTE: Coleman's car here is NOT a Diplomat. The grille in this red car says
Plymouth. As the chase was filmed in Canada where the Plymouth Gran Fury
was sold as the 'Caravelle' from 1978-1982, and as the 'Caravelle Salon'
from 1983-89, it might be a Caravelle. But the fender emblems were removed,
so we can't say for certain that it isn't a US-market Gran Fury.

Amazing Hgh-speed Car Chase by State Trooper
A Spartanburg, S.C., man on Wednesday received 16 years in state prison
after admitting he led a state trooper on a high-speed chase, fired shots
at the officer and threw computer equipment out of his vehicle on Oct. 13,
Christopher Adam Tessigner, 27, pleaded guilty to assault with intent to
kill, failure to stop for a blue light, possession of methamphetamine and
possession of Lortab charges that stemmed from the incident.
Remarkably, no one was injured during the chase, despite many close calls.
The chase lasted several minutes, originating on Highway 9 and Fourth
Street in Boiling Springs, S.C.. Tessigner eluded the trooper by running a
red light, but authorities soon found the car, the car's passenger and
Tessigner in a field near Cedar Crest Road and Granite Park Lane.
