    I am looking for the exact model of the red car in "fear and lothaing in las vegas"

    I have searched on google for hours and can't find anything but a close up shot of the car in the movie. It is a corvette convetible I believe. I challenge you to find it. It isn't anywhere!!!

    thanks in advance

    Go rent the movie silly pants.

    But the fact you called it the red car and not the correct "Red Shark" makes me think you really dont care for Hunter Thompson as much as you should. it was thompson's actual red Cadillac convertible used. RIP

    I know its the red shark, but I didn't think people would get offended if I called it the red car. Thanks for telling me it's a cadillac though. I didn't think it was a corvette, but when I did a google search it had come up in a thread somewhere that he had a corvette in it. My bro. has the DVD but I didn't want to drive 45 minutes away just to find out today (my bro is at work). I am sorry if you were greatly offended by calling it a "Red Car", I am a bit offended you called it a movie though, it is a masterpiece, not just a movie.

    :D ;)

    I know you are going to say "the book is better".

    Damn straight is a materpiece!

    Sorry if I came off wrong, the fact you want an image of the Red Shark speaks volumes to me.

    The Criterion collection of the movie has some cool stuff on it, for yourself id pick that up.

    I really liked the part of the criterion collection with hunter and depp exchanging written correspondences - especially hearing depp read them "in character"

    Not A Cadillac

    The Red Shark was NOT a Cadillac. It was a 1970 or 1971 Chevrolet Impala Conv.

    1971 Chevrolet Impala convertible - first year of that body style and the '72 got a different front end.

    The car used in the film was Thompson's car.

    Lol actually. The "Red Car" in fear and loathing was a 1971 CHEVROLET impala convertible. Although they did get a Cadillac later on in the movie.
    The More You know. :)
