McQ Car Chase (1974)
Car chase scene from the 1974 film MCQ, featuring the first air cannon
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.

1973 Super Duty Trans Am
Some info on this car , I purchased it in Feb 1987 for $7,000. When I
purchaed this car the SD455 motor was rarely spoke of even in Pontiac
crowds. The car is originaly Brewster Green but was painted white back in
the mid to late 70's thats when the large and small birds were added and
yes that would be wrong but that is the way the person who painted it
wanted it. The condition of the paint today is not great but this car is
not a restored trailer queen, nothing wrong with trailered cars, I am not
afraid to drive it, I take it to cruise in's, I have done 200mile day
trips, I have taken it to the track and it runs consistant 13.10 (best time
12.96 @ 107) enjoy it with the family, not afraid if someone leans on it or
touches it, although I try to keep it out of the rain if possible. About
the paint, what would be correct for this car would be Brewster Green paint
and the small bird on the nose (one option that was not ordered for this
car was the large hood bird which was an option in 73). So although not
original this is the way this car appeared back in the day. The rest of
the body and interior is original, the car is loaded with options that
include , CUSTOM CLOTH, PW, PL, A/C, REAR WINDOW DEFROST, LIGHT GROUP,
TINTED WINDOWS, REAR CONSOLE, FM STEREO, EXTERIOR MOLDING TRIM PACKAGE,
sealed maintenance free battery (it had no fill plugs). RTS (radial tuned
suspension) which was an option for the first time in 1973 trans am and
formula, this included radial ttires with about a 1/2 white wall stripe and
the suspension change which I think was about 1/2 degree negative camber.
As for the motor it was rebuilt back in 1991, .030 overbore, heads milled
about .080, 030 SD pistons, match port heads, RA IV hyd cam, roller
rockers, 2 1/2 flowmaster with stock style cross over muffler and Griffin
radiator for 95 degree florida days, all else stock.
I have considered painting it to get the original color back but I think I
would start to baby the car. It's so much fun the way is it now.
