Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Now that's funny!   

And someone in dumbsh!t Hollywood is probably considering that idea right now.

I wonder what Fiat they will use to stand in for the Plymouth?

I delved into it a little more.  Will be set back in the early 1980s.  I suspect they will continue to use a Plymouth as that was the car used in the book except the book Plymouth was a 4 door.  Don't know what King was thinking re a 4 door.  Simply two doors too far away from being cool.  The special effects will undoubtedly be better.  I am enthused they are doing a remake.  I will see it.

It could be about some woke greenie finding the abandoned car in a barn.

Then he converts it to electric power to save the planet.

And the car electrocutes him dead on the first drive.

As the end credits roll, there's another short scene of the car puking up the electric motor, and a 426 Hemi takes its place.

That, I'd pay to watch.

I thought the greenie finds an abandoned first generation Prius, sunk up to the wheels in mud and cow dung.  He saves it but every time he plugs it in for a recharge, people die.  Remember the scene from The Green Mile when the sadistic dork doesn't wet the sponge?

You guys are terrible. But in a funny twisted sort of way. I am liking the altered suggestions. More!

New times, new audience, new Christine

Nothing evokes more anxiety, fear and terror than a new mustang leaving a car show or cars and coffee event driven by a bewildered new owner.

The new Christine should be a new age mustang .....
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

Lol I wholeheartedly agree. Though I am filling in with a new story to plug the gaps about a 2013 Boss 302 entitled Faster than Death. It's a red key black key thing.

The original movie is set in 1978. So if the movie is set in the 1980's the car would need to be from the 1960's.

Maybe a Corvair could come out of a barn, get restored and then kill Ralph Nader in the finale before exploding into flames, then reappear as a Smart electric Fortwo?

Ooooooo I like that!  Lots of creativity going on out there. (Which I admire and appreciate.)

Maybe a Corvair
Not to evoke recent politics here but the Corvair was an early victim of Fake News. By the time Nader's "facts" were proven false and the results released the Corvair had been voted off the showroom floor.

 "Although Nader was proven wrong, according to the investigation performed by the National Highway Traffic Association, the damage to public perception was already done. After easily selling 200,000 units in each of the first six years of production, the Corvair only sold 14,000 by 1968. It was cancelled the next year."

Very true.  A college friend of mine, his dad collected Corvairs.....from 1965 to 1969 ONLY.  He agreed with Nader, the "Swing axle" design before that was a danger.  Funny, look under any old VW Bug......
