I saw that too, back in the 70s. Car was actually facing the 5th wheeler in a parking lot. Thanks for validating my memory!

Yes I have a vhs copy of that. It's a classic and worth seeing if you have not already.

Alright I give away my age but what else besides an 8 track had so much crosstalk that you could listen to 2 tracks at the same time. I still wish I had kept the Mustang that the 8 track was mounted in.

Anyway I did google the movie and you can buy it from Amazon on DVDs.

For those that are not familiar with the movie here is a trailer for it.

I'm not a Lucille Ball fan but I really enjoyed the movie. Especially the part where the mechanic keeps yelling at Desi "trailer brakes first, trailer brakes first!" and Desi just has this look on his face like, "What did I get myself into?". Lol, my DH and I could totally relate the first time out.

I've seen a lot of those old Crown Vics and Fords with broken rear springs dragging their tails on the ground. Its a wonder that one is as level as it is.
