Continuity mistake: When they enter the shipyard during the final chase scene, you can clearly see the camera mounted inside the police car as it jumps and crashes into the frontloader. (01:35:56)
Continuity mistake: When Memphis is talking to the English guy during the scene when Kip is trapped in the car crusher, the English guy states that 80,000 pounds of pressure are required to crush a car. This is false, car crushers exert only 3000 pounds of pressure per square inch and this is enough to split a v8 engine in half and flatten the car to the point where it is only 8-10 inches thick.

Continuity mistake: After the detective gets the idea of the black light in garage with the old car list, the camera cuts to the garage where they're walking in. You will notice when they walk in that one of them has a black light and the other has a White bulb. It pans down to the debris on the floor and he's now got a black light.HerNewTool
Trivia: 13 Mustangs from 1967-1968 were modified to be "Eleanor" in the movie. One was a True Shelby GT500, but this was used by Bruckheimer as a reference piece and used by him personally. The rest were run of the mill Mustangs modified with bodykits and other goodies. One was chopped up to film certain sequences (in car shots, etc.), 2 were destroyed, and the other Mustangs were modified to perform certain tasks (Chases, Jumps, etc.).
