Continuity mistake: When Deke picks Larry up at the start of the film, Deke's sun visor is missing. Moments later, it is in place. (00:02:30 - 00:03:20)

Continuity mistake: When the blue Impala is shown early in the film from the rear, it has a crooked rear license plate, intact tail lights and trim, a 'Chevrolet' emblem at the right side of the trunk lid, and a pair of square stickers (red, blue) at the right end of the rear bumper. As it enters the flea market, the stickers are gone and the trunklid is dented. As it approaches the drawbridge, the plate is straight, a piece of trim is missing, the exhaust pipe changes, a tail light is broken, the 'Chevrolet' emblem and stickers are gone, and the dented trunk lid is fixed. From shot to shot, these conditions swap back and forth repeatedly. (00:19:10 - 00:46:30)

Continuity mistake: At the end of an argument, Mary turns to bite Larry's shoulder. As she turns, the view out the side and rear of the car is of a wire fence surrounding an open, golden field. But the moment of her actually biting Larry has a totally black background- possibly shot while the car was stationary with a tarp behind it. (00:29:00)

Continuity mistake: After trying to ditch Mary at the general store, the blue Impala is chased by two cops in a patrol car. Shots looking rearward from the Impala's backseat at the police car show only two of its headlights are on, but shots showing Larry's face show the police car over his shoulder with all four lights on. This goes back and forth for several shots. (00:44:15)

johnrosa

Continuity mistake: As the Impala approaches the drawbridge, the sun is on the right side of the car for most shots, but when the camera is behind the car looking at its tail, the sun is on the car's left side. (00:46:15)

Continuity mistake: The very first shot of the Dodge Charger shows it parked at the flea market. The car is shown with a crushed front valance, a rusty metal framework added below and behind the valance, and a base-model grille. When the car starts and drives away, the valance is perfect, the rusty frame is gone, and the grille now has an 'R/T' emblem. Two different cars were filmed on different days and the shots don't match up. (00:51:30 - 00:55:00)

Continuity mistake: During the first chase with the Charger, interior shots looking forward show the car has black windshield wiper frames, but shots from the front looking at the windshield show silver frames. (00:57:25)

Continuity mistake: In most shots, Larry is wearing tan driving gloves, but in several shots from the back seat looking forward, the stunt driver has bare hands. This is most obvious during the chase that ends with a police car crashing through a billboard. (00:57:30)

Continuity mistake: When the Charger pulls into the bar/pool hall's parking lot, the sun is on the side of the building that the Charger is driving past. The shot changes to watch the car approaching from the road and now this same side of the building is in heavy shadow. (01:00:30)

Continuity mistake: When the Charger parks at the bar/pool hall, the car's rear panel displays an 'R/T' emblem. But as they fill up with fuel minutes later, the 'basic' Charger script and logo replace the R/T emblem seen earlier. (01:00:35 - 01:07:10)

Continuity mistake: While at the pool hall, Mary indicates that the sign in the window describes Larry perfectly. A close-up shows it reads 'Out To Lunch', but the next wide shot shows it reads 'We're Closed'. (01:01:45)

Continuity mistake: As the '69 Charger turns onto a dirt siding to avoid a police car that approaches from the left, a side shot of the car shows it is suddenly a '68 Charger driving alongside the police car. The round tail lights are quite obvious, as are the missing square side marker lights of a '69 model. (01:09:30)

Continuity mistake: When the Charger turns off the paved road onto a dirt siding, it does so to avoid the cop approaching from the left on the side street. As the cop reaches the end of that street, he turns left to race alongside the Charger which is higher up on the dirt path. In the shot from the rear when the cop is turning, we see that he is already beyond the telephone poles that stand between the paved and dirt roads. When the shot changes to running alongside the police car, looking upward at the Charger, a telephone pole magically passes between the cars. Obviously, they started this shot further back. (01:09:30)

Continuity mistake: During the chase where Larry's Charger knocks a police car in the river, the '69 Charger becomes a '68 Charger in one shot, as seen from the front. The '68 has a different grille than the '69 models. (01:09:40)

Continuity mistake: In some scenes the Charger has emblems on the rear roof pillars that say 'Charger' but in others, there are no emblems there. This is very obvious just before and after the crash with the red truck (before hitting, there are none; stopping, they are back; crawling away, they are gone again). (01:12:30)

johnrosa

Continuity mistake: After colliding with the red pickup truck,, the trio decide to take the car deeper into the walnut grove to hide out while repairing the front end of the car. An exterior shot starts on the left side of the car as it turns away from the camera and crawls away. The round side-marker light behind the '440' marking and the lack of reverse lights in the rear valance indicates this is a 1968 Charger that is wearing 1969 tail lights, poorly installed. This is the only scene in the film that uses this car in this configuration. (01:13:40)

johnrosa

Continuity mistake: When Deke stands up to defend Mary after Larry has pushed her down, a tire & wheel can be seen lying flat to Deke's left, very close to the car. When Larry walks away moments later, the tire/wheel is significantly further forward and left of the car despite nobody touching it. (01:15:00)

Continuity mistake: As the Charger emerges from the groves after repairs, it is spotted by the cop in the modified police car. The close-up of the cop beginning to smile shows that the insignia on the car door has only black outlines on the white door, yet all the shots after show it is properly filled in with gold. (01:19:20)

Continuity mistake: When the Charger emerges from the groves after repairs, it is chased by the 'Hot Rod' police car. Close-ups of the policeman show he is wearing black gloves, but shots from the Charger, looking rearward show a very obvious stuntman who is driving barehanded. (01:19:55)

johnrosa

Continuity mistake: While making a sharp left turn, the Charger is struck in the left rear quarter panel by the 'hot rod' police car, deforming that panel severely. But as the Charger again turns left onto a dirt road to 'powder' the cop's face, the panel is undamaged. The shots that follow next show the damage is back for the remainder of the film. (01:20:25)
