      If you recall the movie start up was prior/and/or during typical retool dates for model year changes. Ads were run much closer to production dates.
      My compatriot refuses to give interviews, but go back and watch the credits and give the transpo guy the questions that have been brought up. The gentleman in question refuses to interview ( due to zealots with a cause) but was happy to discuss this with me while on set with him.
      When I was introduced to this individual nearly a year ago it was stated we had so much in common because of my love for Trans Ams and his work on the SATB beauty cars.
      JUST SAYIN... doubt if you like.

      I think what Poncho told me on the run is very believable and if you look at it from a movie budget standpoint and Pontiac giving the 3 cars, they weren't perfect off the production line. As said, the studio had other cars but were likely bought used for cheap and altered to fit the movie. (this makes for the discrepancy of 3 cars, 5 cars, 8 cars, etc...)Even the cars today are not real Ferrari's and Lambo's but fiberglass replicas kit cars. All the chargers used for the Dukes of Hazzard didn't come from Dodge and new off the lot but created from used cars. It makes the most sense out of all the controversy and rumors. I think in all the interviews there are bits of truth, just never the entire story. This puts it into perspective. And just so the story doesn't end here, I have one of the movie cars used. Sally's shoe prints are still on the inside windshield and that's all the proof I need. hyper image
