Spinout - Car Trouble

The first 'blooper' from 'Spinout':

The AC Cobra car seems to have been driven by a stuntman & a few seconds later, seen after it crashes into a river, it has changed into a
Mistrel-bodied Austin-Healey, driven by Elvis!

Nice spot. I wouldn't have a clue as to what those cars are.

It looks the same car to me like this, let alone watching the movie.

The movies were made to entertain us in the cinema. There may be glitches in the continuity which are hardly noticed at the cinema.
But with VHS and especially DVD you can check and re-check any anomality, no matter how minor.

A vent on the bonnet, the headlights, a side vent to the rear of the front wheel - these are all different between the cars.

Not noticeable when watching the film, but 'bloopers' none-the-less !
