Lol John like the KAPOW! and the BAM! sound effects balloons in the old Batman TV shows?  ;D   I hear ya!  It WAS distressing to hear and see glass shatter when the Pinto (a beauty!) gets into a collision. I'm hoping it didn't get destroyed. If I watch this movie, that might be the last scene before I walk out... :(
One can never have too many Pintos!

Just my opinion--It looks to me like the PINTO does not actually get hit
causing the spin.  By my lo-tech mode of pausing the trailer & skipping
forward it looks to me like that glass fragments are being shot out of the
passengers window. Can anyone with more tech expertise expand on this?

causing the spin. 

The directors and producers probably "knew" all about the explosive nature of the Pinto and were AFRAID to actually hit it!!!  lol

Ok I planed to see the movie opening weekend, but it was only playing in LA and NY. It was on pay per view though . Seeing today was my first full day out driving my Pinto this year {almost 200 miles}, my wife and I just finished watching the movie tonight at home. I wont say much about it except that the Pinto played a prominent role in the movie and every one in the Pinto community {over the age of 17} should watch it.
