Granted, it's set in LA.
Still, the '72 Firebird should have gotten at least co-star billing.

Also seems like the '70s California cops were way lax, since I imagine nowadays getting caught at any single one of these stunts would be instant felony reckless driving conviction with multi-year jail time that would pretty much destroy your career at anything, and at the very least guarantee that you'd never be able to buy auto insurance ever again.
