If you pay attention, in some of the backround scenes, you see modern cars.

In the trailer, during the "from director and producer Ridley Scott" there seem to be a couple newer vehicles. A black Jeep Wrangler and on the right a Dodge or Chevrolet van (I am not sure the make but I see them all the time).

Actually I just figured out that Jeep CJs have been around a lot longer than I thought. I could be wrong about the above post.

You're right, 93montero, that shot is 100% present-day footage, with no period cars to be seen. There's a late nineties Lincoln Town Car on the left side of the rails.

I have added badlymad's pictures, but there should be some regrouping if every car is identified... I think there will be some duplicates.

Here are two of the anachronisms I caught:

It starts off in 1968, then goes on into the 70's, then in the end, there's one short scene in the 90's

The Dodge van is a pretty serious mistake. You think the filmmakers would have noticed when they shot the scene.

Even more visible mistake: towards the end of the movie there is a scene where Crowe is talking from a phone booth. In the background modern cars are parking: a gray sedan and a minivan behind it. Clearly visible, not just small dots. (I remember that scene is in 1975) I can't make screenshot about them, could someone make one to recognize the make of the cars? (sorry 'bout my terrible English)

Three modern cars are visible: a gray Honda Civic, a Honda Accord and a Ford Econoline.

C-130 cargo planes play a major role in the film as drug transports, but their paint scheme (dark grey)is another anachronism, since most planes in Southeast Asia would have had green and tan camouflage patterns.

once there is a DVD out, I will make better captures and add missing vehicles (I have a feeling, that there acn be about 100 vehicles, maybe more visible in this movie) - saw it in theatre yesterday.

I suppose the correct term would be: "White Cracker Carrier" or "Caucasian Carrier" ... :D

There is a 1961 Mercury Meteor 800 in this movie also. Gold in color. It was recently offered on eBay. Why isnt this car listed as being in the movie, even if just for a brief period. There is a shot of it further back in comments from Leoz. I own a 1961 Mercury and have been disappointed that it does not get a mention. Thanks, Bob

I see you left out the Lincoln Town Cars of the early 90s and Caddilacs from the 80s, those cars where in the early 90s scene at the last part of the film when Frank Lucas gets out of prison. It's on the Special Edition DVD where the movie have extended scenes.

Yeah, I kinda get frustrated when I see this movie. Why would Ridley Scott, a director who tends to be good at details, be pretty sloppy at trying to keep modern cars out of the camera frame? The one scene that is most obvious, besides the Dodge cargo van mentioned above, is towards the end when Lucas walks out of the church and looks down both ends of the street. You can clearly see present-day cars driving through the intersections in the background.

Incidentally, I think Leoz was referring to the color of the van when he said, "white people carrier".
