Because every possible movie car chase must happen: Toyota Corona versus Dodge A100!

Yes, there is the movie which pits these two unlikely car-chase protagonists against each other.There have been classic Hollywood cinema with great follow scenes featuring sporty Detroit cars with big V8s, or just ordinary sedans, though because should these chases be limited to vehicles which can accelerate, corner, or brake well? The 1977 film "The Late Show," starring Art Carney as well as Lily Tomlin, facilities the murderous, gold-chain-wearing baddie in the late-1960s Toyota Corona sedan engaging in the using gun battle with Lily Tomlin behind the wheel of the Dodge A100 van, on the streets (and lawns) of the Los Angeles neighborhood. Carney's character is supposed to be an aged retired private eye, whilst Tomlin's character is supposed to be the flighty, weed-dealing young wannabe actress. However, Carney was 59 as well as Tomlin was 38 during the time of filming, so their May-December relationship comes off as more of the July-October deal. Hey, that's what being in the audience is all about suspension of disbelief! And you'll need the full of health portion of which whilst watching the Corona as well as A100 duking it out in the tire-squealing, engine-roaring, guns-blazing car chase. The A100 has the power advantage as well as better ability to go over curbs, though the Corona's brakes as well as handling have been slightly superior.

The A100 has leaf springs during all four corners as well as the kingpin solid-beam front axle, the Corona has the primitive, hoppy '54 Ford-style suspension setup, both have an alarming tendency to dig in rsther than than skid, as well as both have laughably unsound four-wheel-drum brakes. It's not the car follow until someone busts off the fire hydrant. Photo by Warner Brothers The A100 doesn't weigh much, as well as so it's the surprisingly maybe even frighteningly quick car with the V8 engine. Even with the Slant-6 engine, it's not terribly slow. Try to turn during any speed over delivery-driver-backing-up-to-loading-dock page, though, as well as it's eager to flip over. That's the likely explanation for both the van's distinctive yellow-with-red-stripe paint pursuit as well as Tomlin's outfit with red hood; the film's producers could get the dozen cheap A100 Sportsman vans sprayed with matching paint as well as not worry about losing eight or nine to rollover crashes during stunts, as well as the fresh stunt motorist could be dressed up in the red hood every time one had to be rushed off to the hospital after eating the van's windshield and/or steering wheel in one of those rollovers. The Corona wasn't quite as likely to flip over during the 25mph stunt, though it's likely which several were bashed into parked cars due to crappy handling. Really, the torpedo this amoral should be behind the wheel of the 1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst Edition, not the sensible small Corona. Photo by Murilee Martin
