I have never seen Christine. I probably should. I like cars, but have never thought too much about haunted cars.
So I don’t know the story, but I do know the movie bred an automotive icon, along the lines of KITT and Eleanor. The Plymouth Fury is a character. And it has generated some stellar diecast.
I have mentioned several times before, especially with Hot Wheels Entertainment, that I am more interested in the replicas of the cars themselves as opposed to the role they play in a movie. The Fast & Furious R34 Skyline is more interesting to me, for example, because it is an R34 as opposed to a car from Fast & Furious. The same will have to go with the Fury from Christine, especially since I haven’t seen the movie and cannot provide any context.
But I do like the Plymouth Fury, and I love this MiJo Exclusive from Auto World. Auto World has been on a tear with the unique models, and this “For Sale” version of the Fury, complete with rust and dust, is amazing.
It’s down to the details, and this one is just cool. It is a character, but also a cool old rusty barn find, haunted or not. Give me a cool replica, and I will add it to the collection.
