I've never actually seen it, to be honest.. hah.
According to IMDB, it takes place in LA and Mexico, so yeah. Cali plates most likely.

I saw that movie when it first came out.  It has Alex Karras in it, the former Detroit Lion.  I didn't notice the Eagle back then.

It didnt used to be a shock to see Eagles in movies....Now when I see these old movies again I get all excited...Its kinda the highlight of the movie....Ill bet if one was to sit down and study old 80's movies frame by frame you would probably see alot of them.

I've seen that movie, but I don't remember the eagle in that scene.

James woods is kind of the 'heavy' in this movie, and he's racing with Jeff Bridges (who's in a porsche) up that road.  Rachel Ward is the girl in the 'love triangle' with Bridges and woods.  That's the only actors I can remember.

Rachel Ward was such a hottie then.  But so are the eagles.

Yeah, looks a bit lifted to me. Also appears to have the factory roof rack delete.

AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!
