We believe the following are all legit mistakes. If we've bungled it, or you have additional info, please update us.
BUT, Jason writes in to say: Whilst there are a couple of goofs/errors in the movie, I believe that this is not one of them, Reason being, Alot of large workshops such as Darnell's which have a lot of floor space use these castors under the wheels of vehicles, this equipment is called "WHEEL DOLLIES" they are used when a vehicle which is unable to be driven under its own power that needs to be moved around a workshop esp large shops with lots of floor space, it makes it so much easier and less tiring to maneuver, plus you could put it anywhere you want to without any effort.
What do you think? Goof or not?
In slow motion, you can see "stage glass" break out of the car, and NO GLASS is seen in the windshield frame.
Update: G. White kindly wrote in to add: Since doors for a 20+ year-old car almost always come from a junkyard, it's not surprising that Arnie would have to do some fill and sanding on a replaced door. In fact, it would be surprising if he DIDN'T. I've never had a door or fender from a junkyard that I didn't have to do a lot of work on it before it was ready to hang and paint.
-So maybe not a goof after all?
I suspect the people who designed that scene knew this, because of all the MoPars they used and all the mechanics on the staff, but it was a necessary "mistake" to clearly show that Christine was deliberately trapping the girl inside so that help wasn't available.
The actual lock mechanism on that Fury was "hidden" -- you pushed the inside door handle forward to lock the door, and it unlocked automatically when you pulled the handle toward you to open the door. Great anti-theft device, actually -- but it wouldn't work for this scene since you have to be really old (like me) to remember when Chrysler products worked like that.
Sometimes an apparent goof is not a real mistakeThe following goofs for "Christine" are apparently bogus. If you disagree or have additional info, please update us.
Elliott Everett kindly wrote in to say: This is incorrect as it is clearly a two door. With the smoke coming off of it and the fact that the car had a large side-rear window I suppose it appeared to be a four door for a few frames. However, if you look closely and you look at Christine in other parts of the film you can tell clearly they did not use a four door and how the back window could make it appear to be a four door.
Furthermore, they had no reason to do this as John Carpenter only bought two door Furys, Belvedeers, and Savoys.
