In 1977 Universal Pictures released “THE CAR” which starred a possessed modified 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III. James Brolin was also in it. 🙂
“WWED” What Would EVIL Drive? THE CAR!
In the shadow of “JAWS” this movie was “Jaws with a car” and at the end of the movie, both original modified Lincolns were totaled. One by rolling, the other was set on fire and shot over a high cliff to it’s doom. But you can’t keep an evil car down!
So for several years, one fan has been working to resurrect the evil Lincoln, and he’s done it!
Making a full scale replica in steel is nearing completion!
Now all that’s left to do is find a devil worshiping group to curse the car, and it’s ready to go!
The 2 originals were built by Barris Customs for the movie, and above, George finally got reunited with this new SON of THE CAR! If you want a CAR of your own, thanks to a SCC honorary member – you can get a fiberglass one for your very own! You just have to sell your soul! And honk 4 times!
Hey, maybe this car was born from the original CAR and another famous TV car? They say girls like the bad boys! My Mother the car starred Jerry Van Dyke and one of the first cars that was the star of a show!
There are at least two “1928 Porters” out there, anyone know where we can find the screen used “Mother”?
At last report, there was a 1928 Porter in Alberta Canada in a private collection, and one in a museum in Tennessee, but we want one that will tour with us in Southern California!
The 1928 Porter was an actual car, made from the parts of other cars from other makers! So if you do your research, you could in theory, put one together from parts of other old cars.
Starcar Trivia: The final death of THE CAR footage, was used to double for KITT in an episode of Knight Rider shooting off a cliff! watch it all or go to about 3:10 in to see the shot!
