Lights, camera, throttle: Movie camera cars
Click above for a gallery of the cars that make the movies about cars
We dig the cars in car flicks -- but what about the cars that make the flicks about cars? Looking less like Transformers and more like space junk peddled by the sand people, it's hard to imagine what it takes to turn a regular old car into a mobile studio worthy of Deja Vu (pictured).
The Dukes of Hazzard TV series was barely better than those campy 60s movies, with a scenery film running in the back window of the General Lee during in-car shots. The General Lee from the movie is practically two car lengths longer than what you seen on the screen due to the equipment needed to make realistic rolling footage (and a roll of really bad film). Who'd have thunk it? Have a look at the gallery below, and follow the link to check out a bunch more shots of the rolling sound stages. Thanks for the tip, Brian!
