A car appears in the [[NothingExcitingEverHappensHere fictional Utah town of Santa Ynez]]. But not just any car: It is a [[CoolCar heavily modified black 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III]], which proceeds to mercilessly [[VehicularAssault run down]] local citizens. The local police force is baffled by this, especially given sketchy claims from eyewitnesses that the car had no plates, and much more oddly, no driver...

The 1977 film '''''The Car''''' is exactly what would you get [[XMeetsY if you crossed]] ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' with ''Film/{{Duel}}'', minus the Creator/{{S|tevenSpielberg}}pielberg.

* CoolOldGuy: Everett Peck, the sheriff of Santa Ynez and an old friend of Wade's father. [[spoiler:Wade has some big shoes to fill when Ev ends up as the Car's fourth victim.]]

* ShownTheirWork: Unlike most movies that inexplicably depict sheriff's departments as being town cops, the sheriff and deputies are [[ShownTheirWork accurately depicted]] as being a county department (Thomas County, according to their patches). It simply appears Santa Ynez is the county seat.



* TownSheriff: Everett, then Wade. Wade's father was also a sheriff once. However the sheriff and deputies are [[ShownTheirWork accurately depicted]] as being a county department (Thomas County, according to their patches) as opposed to town cops. It simply appears Santa Ynez is the county seat.

* InfantImmortality: Played straight, but only just barely. The Car only didn't get at the kids because [[SeekingSanctuary they ran into the cemetery.]]
** Those poor young bicyclists at the opening of the film weren't so lucky...
