The Cannonball Run

Audio problem: When Mel Tillis and Terry Bradshaw are trying to "re-tune" their race car, when Bradshaw tells Tillis to "hit it one more time", the car makes the distinct starting sound of an older Chrysler when the car was a Chevrolet. Also, how does Tillis starts the car? He has one hand on the steering wheel and his other hand is on the doorframe.

Audio problem: In the big fight sequence towards the end, when the two Lamborghini babes are rescued by Captain Chaos, one of them says, "You're so macho," but the girl's lips aren't moving. (01:18:15)

Continuity mistake: The stock car that Mel Tillis and Terry Bradshaw jump into the pool and tune up outside the meeting is a Chevy Laguna, yet when they punch the clock at the start of the race, it's a Monte Carlo.
