Profile for user Ddey65 - Country: USA (United States of America)

About me; Hmm, let's see -- I've been a car freak and a road geek since my early childhood in the late-1960's, and a major contributor to the Internet Movie Database since approximatley 1997. I frequently find some notorious automotive goofs in movies and television shows, like Ed Harris in "Radio" driving a 1979 Ford Pickup in 1976, and Fran Drescher in "The Nanny" eluding to a prior tryst in a 1972 Mercury Monarch, despite the fact that it wasn't made until 1975.

Cars I've owned:
1)1972 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Coupe.
2)1978 Chevrolet Nova Coupe.
3)1980 Plymouth Volare Sedan.
4)1983 Chevrolet Malibu Station Wagon.
5)1985 Toyota Van(a.k.a.; The Bronze Bomber).
6)1985 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Sedan(a.k.a.; The Bronze Cruiser).
7)1994 Plymouth Voyager Short Wheelbase Mini-Van.
8)1991 Toyota Corolla DX Sedan(a.k.a.; The Silver Sh*tbox).
9)1997 Toyota Corolla DX Sedan(a.k.a.; The Champagne Sh*tbox).

Cars I've driven(List is incomplete):
1)Plymouth Reliant or Dodge Aries K-Car; The cars where I had my first driving lessons.
2)1970 Jeep Gladiator; It was for sale and falling apart as I drove it, so I refused to buy it.
3)1975 Cadillac Fleetwood 75; Thought about buying it and couldn't handle it, so the owner and I mutually agreed not to make a deal.
4)1988 Plymouth Sundance 5-Door Hatchback; Rental from Rent-a-Wreck.
5)1990 Mercury Grand Marquis; Loved it, but somebody talked me out of it and into buying the '94 Plymouth Voyager.
6)1993 Mercury Grand Marquis; Loved it, but couldn't afford it even when the used car dealer took $400 off the price.
7)Ford Explorer or Expedition(I forget which one it was, but it was after a Blizzard so I thought it would be a good idea to rent it).
8)Chrysler PT Cruiser convertible; Another rental car.
9)2005(I think) Chrysler Sebring Convertible; Another rental, but only for one day.

Cars I love(List is incomplete):
1)1965-1968 full-size Chevrolets
2)1966 Dodge Charger.
3)1972 Plymouth Fury.
4)1988-1991 Ford LTD Crown Victoria.

Potential Contributions
As with any member of IMCDB, you'll find my contributions when you click the proper link on my profile. But here you'll also find a list of contributions I want to make, some of which I actually have a chance of carrying out.

Act of Vengeance (1974, movie): A.K.A. "Rape Squad." Mid-1970's exploitation flick about a bunch of women who attack rapists. Yes, cars and trucks are in this movie.
All I Wanna Do (1998): More to come.
Amber Alert (2012): Some young couple chases a car driven by some pervert who kidnaps a little kid. The dashboard of a Hyundai chases an early-2000's Honda Accord Hybrid, and a Ford Crown Vic Police Specials.
American Dragon: Jake Long(2005-2007, Animated Series): Some episodes have cars and trucks that can be easily recognized.
American Drive-In (1985, movie): The very title involves a drive-in, so naturally there are cars in it. Somewhere is an unknown red car where a guy tries to get his girlfriend to perform oral sex on him, an enduro motorcycle of some sort, an apparent Ford Courier pickup driven by a pair of homophobic rednecks, a couple who tries to fool around in a tiny sports car that makes an MG Midget look like an Imperial Crown Limousine, and multiple vehicles with only partial views.
A.N.T. Farm (2011-2014, TV-Series): At least two other episodes of this Disney Channel sitcom have vehicles; 1)Undetermined food vending vans in "America Needs TalANT," and 2)Three random Japanese motorcycles in "ChANTs of a Lifetime."
"Arrest and Trial" (1963-1964 TV-Series): Short-lived police drama that preceeded the original concept of the Law & Order franchise. Plenty of 1950's and 1960's cars and trucks here.
Baadasssss! (2003): Still missing a 1958-59 Chevrolet Apache stake truck.
Battle of the Sexes (2017): Second cinematic retelling of the landmark 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Trailers show Emma Stone driving a 1968-72 Pontiac LeMans, a background 1967 Dodge Coronet, and other vehicles.
Blessid Union of Souls: Oh, Virginia (1995, Music Video): Late-1960's Lincoln Continental that's hard to capture.
Bratmobile: Eating Toothpaste (2000, Music Video): Added the one vehicle in this video to the forum.
Cave-In: Anchor (2003, Music Video):
Cave-In: Inspire (2003, Music Video):
Cherry (2010, movie):
An indie film containing a mid-1960's Buick LeSabre, a fairly contemporary Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, a brief chase between them, and some other vehicles, I forget.
Childrens Hospital (2008, TV-Series): A show on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim timeslot that doesn't belong on Cartoon Network, but it's still funny, and has some vehicles.
Dandelion: Waiting for a Ride (1993, Music Video): One other Firebird that's a little older.
The Deadly Tower (1975, TV-Movie): Loaded with anachronisms.
Divot Diggers (1936, Short Film): This old "Our Gang" short had a big chase scene with an unidentified tractor.
The Equalizer (1985-1989 TV-Series): Will add more vehicles from more episodes.
Frenemies (2012, TV-Movie): Besides a Jeep Grand Wagoneer and a last generation Lincoln Town Car stretch limo, this DCOM has some other background vehicles.
The Hard Times of R.J. Berger (2010, TV-Series): More to come.
Harold (2008): One uncapturable mid-1970s Chevy Chevelle or Malibu missing.
Hotel for Dogs (2009): A UPS van that splashes by a guy at a bus stop who teases the star dog is a little hard to capture.
House Arrest (1996): Others might come.
Jailbait (2000, TV-Movie): One missing.
Johnny Tsunami (1999, TV-Movie): I was only able to make a list for this one. Thankfully though, sandwad2 added some images.
K.C. Undercover (2015-present, TV Series): They have episodes with a lot more vehicles than your average Disney Channel multi-camera sitcom.
Kim Possible (2002-2007, Animated Series): More to come.
The Legend of Tillamook's Gold (2006): Saw it more for Julia Campbell than anything else. There's also a blue Japanese enduro bike that's kind of hard to capture.
Maniac Magee (2000, TV-Movie): Cars and trucks certainly exist in this movie. As soon as I can correct the date for IMDb, maybe I'll start donating images.
Mark & Russell's Wild Ride (2015, TV-Movie): An apparent Disney-fied version of License to Drive.
Midnight Runaround (1994, TV-Movie): A few other vehicles might be considered.
Midnight Run for Your Life (1994, TV-Movie): A better shot of some 1977-78 Dodge Monaco police cars would be preferable... yes in a contemporary movie from 1994.
Monk (2002-2009, TV Series): Spotted a few vehicles, and added them. Maybe I'll find more someday.
Morrissey: Glamorous Glue (1992, Music Video):
Mother, Jugs & Speed (1976):
Two missing vehicles.
One-Trick Pony (1980): Contains of all things a Toyota Celica with NYS Commercial license plates.
Out of Sight (1966): Features a lot of custom cars (and one motorcycle) built by George Barris, most notably The ZZR.
The Polecats: Make a Circuit With Me (1983, Music Video): Saw a 3rd Generation Ford Econoline E-350 cutaway van in that one.
Pulsallama: The Devil Lives In My Husband's Body (1981, Music Video): Yes, there was actually a car in that video!
Ricky Raccoon Shows the Way (1978): Creepy-looking kids safety film of the 1970's that was made fun of by Rifftrax, that has lots of 1960's and 1970's cars, trucks, and buses, as well as one locomotive owned by the Southern Railway.
Safelight (2015): Lots of trucks, and some cars and a motorcycle too, since it takes place mostly at a truck stop.
Senior Trip (1981, TV-Movie): Tried and failed to capture a 1980 Chevrolet Impala Station Wagon that almost ran over one of the kids in the movie.
That Girl (1966-1971, TV-Series): spotted one that was overlooked and added it, but one is not enough.
That's So Raven (2002-2007 TV-Series): A few other vehicles are missing from this series.
Tracey Takes On... (1996-1999, TV-Series): More are coming.
The Troop (2009-2011, TV-Series): More vehicles are needed, many of which can be found in the episode "Do Not Talk to Dr. Cranius" (ep. #1.24).
The Ultimate Christmas Present (2000, TV-movie): Could use a few more vehicles.
What Harvest Grows the Reaper (1968, Documentary):
Wendell & Vinnie (2013, TV-Series):
Some episodes of this Nick at Nite series have cars.
Where's the Bus (1966, short film): Short film starring Teri Garr. There are some other background vehicles in this, but I'm not sure I can or even should try to capture them.
The World of Henry Orient (1964): At least one GMC medium-duty conventional hooded truck that has a backfire, but is too quick to capture.
You're a Big Boy Now (1966): At least one other user on this site has called for the addition of a few background vehicles, I might oblige. There are a few trucks I want to capture, though.
Zoey 101 (2005-2008, TV-Series): There are a few other vehicles missing from episodes like "Disc Golf" and others, so I have to consider adding them there.

I'll edit this profile again, when I want to say anything about motor vehicles I actually like... or when some of the stuff I want to send gets here, whichever comes first.
