Honey I blew up the kid Lotus Elans

Postby Specky » Mon 14.07.2014, 21:43

Can any one shed any light on the cars in the film?... Could any one shed some further light on the matter

Here's what I have so far, I have not substantiated any of this so it's rumour and conjecture.

Allegedly 5 NMY Federal cars were ordered by Disney, but for some reason only four cars arrived, a 5th car was sent at a later time but sadly arrived to late for filming.

Mike Kennedy currently owns one.
Dave schmid sorta had one (the 5th, there might have been some continuity errors there)

Someone said they saw one in the Universal back lot many years ago partially hidden out of view.

So can you add to the story?

That's good news... I can research that:-)

So that's pre Disney MGM merger...

Would you have any photos?

To confuse the Honey car search even more, there have been numerous mentions of Chromed Wheels showing up at different times that were all attributed to the Honey cars. I got 3 of them, all bent, from Steve M and was told that they were definitely from Disney, but NONE of the cars in the movie had chrome wheels, so why would Disney have chromed them?

Dave's I.B.2 car is actually in South Carolina. I emailed the current owner in Indiana and he still keeps all 3 of his M100s in SC. I will visit him the next time he comes to SC for a few days.

As someone who is looking for a NMY M100 I can now see why they don't come along as often, watching the videos was depressing :cry:
