Reviews of movies from my giant DVD tower, and more.
Look what I found for sale recently while searching for Jaws images on-line: a re-creation of the Amity PD’s 1975 Chevy Blazer, used in the movie by Roy Scheider’s police chief character Martin Brody, and authentic right down to the bubble lights, the ‘Beach Closed’ signs, and the spare tire and first aid kit in the back.
According to the website’s description, it had ‘just completed a 2-year, photo documented, frame-off restoration and re-creation’, and was sold in 2012 for $24,200 by Barrett-Jackson, at one of their classic car auctions.
The selling price doesn’t seem like all that much, does it? Who knows, I might be tempted to buy one of these beauties if I ever find another for sale. Or maybe I’ll just take that 1971 Plymouth Barracuda from Phantasm instead.
