McQ's car was an extremely rare Brewster Green 1973 Pontiac Trans Am SD-455 (Super Duty). See more
When McQ leaves the state building after the drug heist to follow the laundry truck, he runs to his Trans Am, opens the door, and is seen getting in head first before the cut away. Since John Wayne was 6'4" tall, it would have been impossible for him to get into a Trans Am that way, he would have to go right leg first, and then slide into the seat, tilting his body to the left as he does it, and twisting his neck out of the way until his butt hit, and slid across the seat, which is the way he is seen to do it when he comes out of Pinky's office into the alley.

Elaine, I need $5000.
I hope it's for a woman.
The 1980s Warner Home Video VHS master was made from a 16mm TV print missing ten seconds of footage including during the car chase involving a laundry truck, an additional punch from Santiago when he confronts McQ in his office, and the introduction of Santiago's henchman before the final chase on the beach. The later video releases and DVD are uncut. See more
