I have this movie and I admit that it sucks.  The only reason that I ever watch it is because it was filmed in my hometown of St. George, Utah.  It is kinda cool to see how the town used to look.

Regarding whether Margie is Luke's girlfriend or wife, when she's calling for help on the radio she identifies herself as "Margie Johnson." And with the clarity of DVD you can see in several scenes that Luke's nametag on his uniform says "Johnson." Ergo, Margie is Luke's wife. (Another surname revealed via these nametags is Everett's; it's Peck.)

Direct quote from George Barris site:

Designed for the movie "The Car" starring James Brolin. Made from a 1971 Lincoln. Fenders were 20 gauge steel shaped over the original body. The grill was hand made from square steel tubing. 4 bumpers made from heavy 18 gauge steel. Seven inch single headlights sunk behind the grill and fender. Body was raised to upper doorline. Four radius wheel wells around a six inch reverse deep chrome wheels and Goodrich tires.

Top was chopped 4 inches with all black transparent windows. Full body roll bars installed over and around stunt driver. A steel tube canon was installed on passenger side which had a telephone pole inside and steel cap which housed dynamite and black powder. When the stunt man rolled the car he would trigger the tube telephone pole by igniting the dynamite which drove the pole into the ground and roll the car 5 times. Finished with 20 coats of black pearl lacquer. A total of four were made.

The movie is a classic, people try to put too much realism and logic in there mind in reviews.

If a wind passed by you at night, and I creeded up behing you and blasted out the evil sounding horn you'd s**t your pants right there.

saw the movie at the drive inn was so cool!

 Thumbdown   Andy?  You s**t the bed on this one.  The Car is high-octane fun.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
