Corvette Summer

Revealing mistake: The car has side-exit exhaust, or 'side pipes' as they are more commonly called. The characters also refer to them as 'Mercury tubes' several times throughout the movie. In the scene during the car chase out of Las Vegas, the Vette skids to a stop at the freeway dead-end sign. As the car accelerates away again, the actual functioning stock exhaust pipes can be seen exiting under the rear bumper and smoke can be seen coming out of them. The 'Mercury Tubes' aren't even hooked up.

Mistakes

As Kenny is riding the bike, to try and grab on to the ladder at the back of the camper, the rear side-marker light on the camper is missing its red lens cover. In subsequent shots the red cover is there, and then vanishes again.

Trivia

During the course of the story, the Vette goes from being red, then painted gold, and finally back to red again. The producers actually had two cars, one red and the other gold, custom made before production began. This was to help speed up the filming. During the course of filming, both cars were stolen, and two more, another red one and another gold one were hastily made to finish production. The original two were shortly recovered, and all four were used as displays at various movie theaters across the country when the film premiered.
