[Done] Silver Streak, movie
Published 26/04/2006 @ 23:39:23, By user-.html
I good movie to add is the Silver Streak (1976). It features:
Numerous Dodge Polara squads
A Chevy Monte Carlo squads
A stock Monte Carlo
Three Ford Torino wagons
plus about 20 other cars.
It is about:
A book-editer/producer name George Caldwell (Gene Wilder) who travels a fictatious streamline train, AMRoad's Silver Streak, from Las Angeles ro Chicago. While on his journey he falls in love with a secretary. He witnesses a murder and tells a under-cover FBI angent and when the FBI agent is murdered, George is accused. He later learns HE is going to be killed next and is thrown off a train, through the course of the movie he falls of two more times and helps capture the head of the murder plot, Roger Devereou (Patrick McGoohan) and save his secretary girlfriend, Hilly Burns (Jill Clayburgh) with the help of proffesional theif Grover Muldoon (Richard Pryor).
This movie features an estimated 25 cars, 1 train, 1 plane and has 2 car chases with 1 car wreck (or as Grover says "A Demolition Durby") with two Dodge Polaras.

The Diesel Engine used for AMRoad's 4070 Silver Streak was CP Rail's GMD FP7A No. 4070. The movie was shot in Canada dew to a uncoroptive AmTrak. The paint scheme for AMRoad was the same as CP Rail's "Pac Man" paint scheme escept for the black arow at the back which was covered up on the Silver Streak. The origenal Silver Streak engine is in cold storage in Canada as of 2002, the train seen crashing through the station in "Chicago" was actually a empt engine with fake wheels and some of the paint cover up was torn off revealing the CP logo at the rear of the engine and the station was actually a vacant airport hanger.

I found this a little confusing when I started so I will try to give some details:

1. Create a topic for your movie in "contributions". Include, movie name and IMDB information.

2. upload the pictures to www.imageshack.us (if you create an account you can upload them all and imageshack will keep track of them so you can add them to the forum. If you don't create an account you will have to upload them and copy the url one at a time.

On imageshack you will see a browse button that allows you to select the image on your computer, then click 'host it'. After the upload you will get 3 URLs listed: thumbnail for websites, and two thumbnails for forums(1 an 2).

3. after you upload a picure, copy the url for 'thumbnail for forums - 1.' and paste it in the message for the topic you created.

4. put information for each picture in the topic - I.D., stars, comments, etc. (I prefer to have the info above the picture but you can put it below if you want - just be consistent.

5. repeat for the remaining picures until you have posted all of them in the topic.

6. An administrator will then transfer the pictures to the IMCDB site when they have time.

If you want to post pictures in your comments on IMCDB site then upload to imageshack and copy the url 'thumbnail for websites' into your comment.

Hope this helps.

P.S. Don't forget to sign up for this forum and login before you post pictures or we may not know who did it.

You have to create an account on this forum with username and password (click register)because IMCDB and this forum are on different servers. You can use the same name and password if you wish.

The picture is OK. :wink:

The test picture seems to work, but you can save it to JPEG to have smaller files that upload faster. Either compress only a little, and we will recompress later. Or compress directly to the right format, i.e. 25% compression or 75%, depending on the program (25% when 0% = better quality, 75% when 100% = better quality).
Be sure to crop black borders if they are big, and that aspect ratio is good (i.e. wheels are round). There is also a picture size limit of 720px wide.


If you want to post pictures in your comments on IMCDB site then upload to imageshack and copy the url 'thumbnail for websites' into your comment.

Now in IMCDB comments it works with any of the links, all the three thumbnail links will work :wink:

Some were copied, but not all. And for new accounts it depends if the option for that was selected when registering on IMCDB.

So, are we going to add the Silver Streak? I have more cars and shots of car wrecks, but I just added the basic and rare cars. The others are just backround 1 star cars, but I do have pictures of the wrecks.

Will add them when we have time as they need editing to the proper size and aspect ratio. I should be able to get to it tomorrow or the next day if another admin doesn't get to it first.

Be patient, there are few administrators and many contributors. :wink:

I could do it tomorrow in the end of the afternoon, or saturday if wrenchhead do not have time to do it before me :grin:
But not this evening (since it is the evening now here in Europe)

About the "Lancia maybe", I think it is a Fiat X1/9
