Star Car Hire Supply Dodge Charger for 'Drive Angry 3D' Photo Call
19th January 2014
Star Car Hire recently provided our matt black Dodge Charger for a photo call with 'Drive Angry 3D' actress Amber Heard.
The new movie, starring Nicolas Cage, features a matt black 69 Dodge Charger and has plenty of car chase action.
Nicolas Cage (?Bad Lieutenant?, ?Adaptation?) stars as a vengeance-fuelled father who breaks out of Hell to pursue the killers of his daughter and save her kidnapped baby in Lionsgate DRIVE ANGRY 3D, the new in-your-face shocker from the team behind 'My Bloody Valentine 3D', director Patrick Lussier and fellow writer Todd Farmer.
Oscar-winning star is joined on screen by William Fichtner ('The Dark Knight'), Amber Heard ('The Rum Diary'), Billy Burke ('Untraceable'), Simona Williams and Katy Mixon.
Milton (Cage), a hardened felon, has broken out of Hell for one last chance at redemption. Intent on stopping a vicious cult who murdered his daughter, he has three days to stop them before they sacrifice her baby beneath a full moon. He's joined by Piper (Heard), a young, sexy waitress, who liberates her boyfriend's cherry-red muscle car in order to help Milton.
Now the two of them are hot on the trail of the deadly leader of the cult, Jonah (Burke), who believes it is his destiny to use the baby to unleash Hell on Earth. But the bloodthirsty cult is the least of Milton's problems. The police are after him too. And worse, an enigmatic killer known only as The Accountant (Fichtner) has been sent by the Devil to retrieve Milton and deliver him back to Hell.
Lionsgate UK will release Drive Angry 3D in cinemas nationwide on Friday 25th February 2011

Dorset Police Pull General Lee for sounding Dixie Horn during wedding.
2nd July 2014
Warning! This story may annoy those of you left in the world who still have a remaining ounce of human decency and common sense. Last week one of Star Car Hires General Lee owners Wayne Duke got pulled over during a wedding for.wait for it..beeping the cars infamous Dixie horn!!! Crime of the century!! As Wayne drove through the small village of Wyke Regis in Dorset he was encouraged by onlookers in the street to sound the horn (as is quite often the case when onlookers see the orange 1969 Dukes of Hazzard Dodge Charger roll by). When Wayne did so he was pulled over almost immediately by Dorset Police with the bride and groom still in the car. Poor Wayne was given a ticket and summonsed to court as apparently these air horns were made illegal in the 1970s! Now in this day and age we would have thought that the Police would have slightly more to do than pull over a couple on their wedding day for beeping a novelty air horn that is part and parcel of this famous car. It would be more of a crime to own a General Lee and NOT install a Dixie horn! Apparently the police did not even apologise to the bride and groom for holding them up. Another great statistic to add to Dorset Polices crime figures, well done lads!! Maybe next time youll catch some REAL criminals! What is the World coming to?
