Just noticed the pair of shiny Buick Electras in this chase scene — featuring Gene Hackman as a very unsavory Santa — from The French Connection.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.

Hard to believe that gene Hackman was the original pick for the dad on the Brady Bunch.ReplyDelete
My best friend got an Electra 225 Wildcat for graduation. It broke a LOT of muscle car folks' hearts. The look on their faces as that huge cruiser powered past them a half mile out is forever etched in my mind. Good times.ReplyDelete
Still one of the great films of its era.ReplyDelete
There are actually three Buick's in a row. Plus a 66 Chevy similar to my own at the left.ReplyDelete
