There are a lot of background cars in this movie, which are not 1973 Chevrolets.

The next cars are seen driving on the NY-expressway in opposite direction:

I think bothe the green and the blue vans are probably Fords or Dodges, maybe one could be a Ford and the other could be a Dodge, but if I had a photo of the fronts I could be sure.

Not as many as in Matrix Reloaded, but I think ca. 15.

I'm pretty sure the scene where it's 75% Chevys and 25% Cadillacs and Bond backseat drives a taxi was filmed on the FDR Drive southbound between the South Street exit and the Battery Park terminus of the FDR.

Lots of 1973 Chevrolets were used (and wrecked) in this movie because the movie is sponsored by Chevrolet. They say it in the credits.

From what I read about this film, this James Bond film was released at the height of the "Blaxploitation Era"; a film subgenre of the 1970s with African-Americans portrayed as pimps and big time gangsters driving around in their heavily customized cars; "the pimpmobiles".

This film used the stereotypes and cliché that were used in several Blaxploitation films in the 1970s; the ethnic slang, the fashion, the music and the pimpmobiles.

There is a surprising array of models of some of the more minor cars from this movie.

I've added the SAAB because I managed to determine the year by looking at side trim, position of the filler cap, backup lights, sidemarker, bumpers and rear window.

Just because we can identify something doesn't mean it's worth listing.

Apart from being a bit blurry, it is rather well visible, I think.
Besides, we have many movies with worse background vehicles, and everyone seems to be fine with it 🤔

I actually identified some of the background cars, thanks a lot.

I know I uploaded new additions many times , but I did that just because I don't understand why for example a well-visible and clearly identified Pontiac GTO in the middle of the picture is not 'worth listing', but in many other cases, almost every shitbox gets its own page.
I thought this was all about cars and not bureaucracy.

All I want to do is contribute to the database, but while it takes over a month (!) for my content to be validated, last night's additions were deleted very quick, put in a mass coment without even naming the things I identified.

While most users here share their passion and interest in motor vehicles, it appears some very few are very ignorant of anything beyond their horizon.
Perhaps some might think this also applies to me, but I am motivated by creating a reliable source of information.

Sorry for this disturbance, I hope you all have a nice easter today.

@Robi - You submit too many background cars that do not meet the criteria for background cars. Many are too small, blocked by objects, seen through windows, blurry, etc. They do not really belong as listings, but are fine for the comments, which is what I did rather than delete them all. I'm sorry that you are having problems understanding why they are rejected.

Here are the rules for background cars for the FAQ/Help page:

Additional guidelines for background vehicles (note that these apply only to 1-star vehicles)

Do not post very small pictures of background vehicles (note: 90 pixels wide for a 720 pixels image is about the limit for useful pictures of most background cars).

Similar background vehicles in a movie should be regrouped by posting additional images in the comments of a vehicle page.

Do not post background vehicles that are seen through the windows of another car (i.e. far away, seen between actor heads, or when the foreground car is more visible than the background one).

Do not post pictures of background (unrelated to the plot) golf carts or lawn mowers.

Do not post pictures of background vehicles that are blurred or obstructed.

Avoid posting pictures of vehicles that are seen for an extremely short time (for example: can only be seen in a frame by frame advance of the movie).

If a picture has several background cars visible, do not make a separate page for each one. Rather, make a page for one (or two, if interesting or well visible) and list the others in the comments for that page.

No ordinary background "traffic" cars (includes parked cars) for documentaries, reality-TV or music videos.

That may be the case in some cases, but sometimes that just isn't true. Many of my additions are well visible, and even identified, but the thing that gets accepted is the blurry van behind objects.

I accept the rules as they clearly make sense, but often it appears that they are used too strictly, since many cars meet the criteria of being added very well.

I will lower the number of additions and mago for quality instead of quantity, but I expect a better judgement in some cases.

Basically you just quoted the guidelines which in many cases did not even affect the vehicle in question...

Alright, I'll go through them and why they were rejected:

Too small - 1, 3, 8, 10, 15, 16, 21
Seen through window - 2, 5, 18, 22, 24
Too blurry - 4, 11, 25, 26
Obstructed cars - 6, 12, 13
Shots of multiple background cars and already seen in another listing: 17, 19, 20, 27

#9 was accepted and I just forgot to remove from group above

There are three borderline pics that might be acceptable - 7-Olds Toronado - kind of blurry and seen through window, but it is full shot
- 14-Camaro RS - already seen on another listing above but might be interesting enough for it's own listing
- 23-scooter - kind of blurry and random background scooter

Okay, it seems I overreacted a littlebit, and I also added too many cars with little chance of validation. Let's clean up the comments here together, okay?

I suggest that I post only the cars already identified here into the comment section, leaving out most of the random background cars.

Please allow me to add at least very three cars:

- The 1970 Impala Sport Sedan: seen through the window, but giving a very good view on the side profile
- The GTO: Maybe a bit small, but in the center of the image and a very iconic car nevertheless
- The 1969 Impala Custom Coupé: A bit obstructed, but large and clear enough, also there is also a full view of it (a bit more blurry) confirming its identity

If you want, I can also add the Camaro, Toronado and the scooter, but that's up to you. I appologize for being a bit rude this morning, but it wasn't my all-time favourite day, to be honest.
