Default A Very Unique Question

I'm filming an independent film and I need to find a late 80's/early 90's sedan with a large trunk that has drop down rear seats so you can access it from the cab. I need a cheap crappy car that I can have one of my actors escape from the cab via the trunk. Any suggestions would make my week.

Honestly, even if it doesn't have drop down rear seats, then a car that a person could conceivably hack through the rear seats and make their way into the trunk would be fine.

Chevrolet Caprice it was a Taxi, it has a massive trunk, and seat didn't fold but had little more then springs to hack through, also could be made to fold pretty easy.

Wait. Go from the cab into the trunk to escape? sounds backwards.

The guy is kidnapped and left alone for a moment, he knows there is a gun in the trunk.

AWESOME! You are a gorgeous gorgeous man. I'm willing to hear other suggestions from someone else in the event another car would be better suited to my purpose.

Old Ford Crown Vics will suit the bill too, and can be had for under 2 grand.

Or find a Ford Thunderbird with the drop down rear seats for a large late 80s/early90s car with a very large trunk and back seat.

$20 says if the OP needed a from which someone couldn't escape from the trunk, Raptor would also say to use a tbird.

Yes I would. Mine doesnt have the drop down rear seat and has an x brace across the seat back rather than the L braces the drop-down seat cars have. Theres no way to escape from that trunk.

Oh and speaking of trapping people in the trunk. There was an NCIS episode that used a Thunderbird for that exact purpose.
