To Live And Die In L.A. part 5

Okay, this is the last of these pics, I swear. The first two are from Wilmington. They show what I believe are supposed to be two different locations in the movie, but the distinctive T-shaped 140 ton vertical test tower of Coordinated Wire Rope and Equipment is visible. The next two pics are from a stupid-ridiculous climactic car-chase scene which was for some reason reversed. That is, the "hero car" and the guys he was chasing were dirving in the correct direction on the right side of the road, but the "background cars", i.e. everyone else, were driving on the wrong side of the road, British-style. I have no idea why. I heard the director try to explain it on the dvd commentary, but it made no sense. (I think he said something like, "It was more exciting that way", or some such nonsense.)
Finally, a nice pic of the good ol' Vincent Thomas, as seen through the closing credits. The credit sequence actually involves a single shot that goes from Gaffey street to halfway up the bridge. Pretty cool.
