A small desert town is terrorized by a powerful, seemingly possessed car, and the local sheriff may be the only one who can stop it.
The make and model of "the car" was a 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III black coupe.
And if I hear another sound out of that thing, I'll ram it so far up your ass, you'll be farting music for a year.
John Morris: Wouldn't that be fantastic? Farting music. For a year!
On the main drag of the town (supposedly in Utah), there is a sign for Interstate 5, which runs only through California, Oregon, and Washington.
The Car's horn blows at the beginning and the end of the ending credits.
The NBC TV version of this film was heavily edited for violent content. In particular, the scene where the Car goes into a barrel roll over the two oncoming police cars was totally removed, leaving the first time viewer with a major continuity problem. Other parts removed included the quick scene where the hitchhiker is shown being thrown through the air after being hit by the Car and later on, the Car blasting through the front window of the house is slightly altered.
