well i suppose that for the year 1958 it was not bad, most of it for not saying them all were filmed in the "aparently" same rural road, them are similar in crashes and driving, so not spectacular i guess but well, is another chase we should watch, ill recommend you to watch it so you can give your opinion.

Oh and i forgot to mention that the last crash was funny in the way of how they rolled the car seing that in those ages the air cannon was not used yet :D which makes it more realistic, the stuntman has to guide the car into an embankemnt and roll it over, and in the first chase of the film the 1950 Ford rolls over accidentaly, you can clearly notice it because it wants to slide but ends up roling over and in the next shot you see it driving back on the road, quite unrealistic no? but i guess they had to continue with the chase :p

The car in the last row, right, is almost certainly the same 1951 Ford Custom shown in the third row, third photo.

A car carrying as much whiskey as shown in the film would have its rear bumper nearly dragging the road. Police of the time looked for this. Of course a bootlegger might install extra-heavy duty springs, but that might make the car more noticeable when the trunk was empty.

They use helper springs, that didn't contact the stock springs until the tanks ere loaded with shine. They still use em today.
