              I'm still partial to the parade of scouts in the "When it was a game" movie w/ all of the NY Yankees riding w/ the tops down. I think that they were in 80 or 800's.

                Dream Catcher

                Stephen King put lots of IH's in his books, or so I hear. The Scout used in Dreamcatcher was one of Mr. Scout's customer and he says the one they wrecked was a hand built model of one, not a real Scout.

                  Hand built? Lot of work just to go and flip it.

                  Just went and watched the trailer on Apple.com. Looks scary.

                  What is this commerical from the Ford guy? We dont have TV....

                    I saw Dreamcatcher, and jumped off the couch when I first saw the Scout, my wife rolled her eyes. It was around a 77-79 I think. I found the roll of the Scout far more tragic than all the people dying, is there something wrong with me? Glad to hear it was just a model, I can rest easy again now.

                      No there is nothing wrong with you!! I always remember something I read in Car Craft along time ago.

                          also the 68 442 convertible in Foriegner's video from years ago and all of the 70 W-30s in "Demolition Man" - at least the W-30s were clones

                          Yep - one should not wreck a good car for a lame movie

                          Of course, look at the General Lee cars - made the ones that survived a bunch more rare and supposedly more valuable

                            A lot of King's specifics are BS. The guns they were carrying in that book were .223 caliber HK MP5's, which only come in 9mm.
                            But in the 4th book in the Dark Tower series, King hints that all of his stories take place in alternate dimensions, very similar to ours. The characters determine this but finding a car in a parking lot made by a company that doesn't exist in the dimension they are from.
                            Perhaps in some alternate reality, they built the Scout up until at least 1984?
