Roll Bars & Bumpers
Pictured below is a pair of Scout II’s that were used in the movie “Dreamcatcher” (2003) written by Stephen King and featuring Morgan Freeman. Although this movie is “set” in Maine, USA, it was actually filmed in British Columbia, Canada. I believe 5 Scouts were used. One was taken back to California to be placed in a museum. The remaining Scouts are still located in B.C. and the pictures below show the damage they sustained to make the film. One Scout had a special rack installed on the roof for the movie camera. A couple of the Scouts had protective roll cages built to protect the actors. All of the Scouts were painted the same colour (faded red body with white top) and a russet interior. Guess which of the two Scouts below has a roll cage? Both were rolled~! Interesting to note that the bodies were sprayed to simulate “dirt” on the bodies with a concrete looking wash. This can still be seen on the bodies. Want to own a piece of history? Main point here...is the roll cage! CLICK on EACH PICTURE~!
