And then there was "Vanishing Point".
Chrysler lent a bunch of new Challengers to the production company - mostly 440s with 4 speeds.
They were returned to Chrysler after the shooting finished.
They were scrapped.

Ok,then there must be some excavators in the movie.Haven't seen it,so my post was somewhat 'half-cocked' then.

Merry Xmas All.

Bulldozers - Excavators, wassa diff?
Actually you have to watch the whole film. Bit of an off-beat cult classic on a relatively low budget. A little thinker in parts.

if you have not seen Vanishing Point but want to get to the punchline quickly, go to Yewtoob and find "Show me how to live" by Audioslave.

Surely an excavator is a machine for digging holes whilst a bulldozer is used for pushing around what comes out of holes. The Canadian was trapped by an excavator bucket whilst the Challenger ended up running inter a ulldozer blade. Simples

You could call them both 'earthmovers'.
