Christine (1983)

In the 1983 John Carpenter adaption of the Stephen King novel, “Christine,” the director returned to his old South Pasadena stomping grounds, where he famously shot “Halloween.”  Those locations can be found in the same proximity as the exterior of the house where Arnie lives in “Christine.”

However, when people think of the film “Christine,” the first thing that comes to mind is of course the killer car.  The film follows a possessed Plymouth Fury as it wreaks havoc on it’s owner and those around him.  24 total Plymouth Fury vehicles were acquired for use in the film.  This was one of two stunt cars, which can be found at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California.  At the end of the production, the vehicle was set to be destroyed.  However, a buyer stepped in and rescued the car, using parts from other screen-used “Christine” vehicles and restored it back to it’s original condition.
