Sampson vs the Vampire Women

I was watching Sampson vs the Vampire Women (YouTube) last night. It was a Mystery Science 3000 movie. It’s a very good movie, I recommend it. Sampson, by the way, doesn’t come in until the last third of the movie or so. I don’t think I’m giving away the plot when I tell you that he’s a Mexican professional wrestler. What really caught my eye was the very last scene in the movie.

I took a screen shot on my computer just now. Sampson was driving what appears to be an Austin Healey 3000, Mach III. Correct me if I’m wrong. But I owned a 1950 3000 Mach I 45 years ago. It was long in the tooth when I owned it. As a matter of fact, the reason Frau Grace and I are married now is because it broke down in her front yard, and it took me a month to fix it. The internal gears on the distributor stripped. By the time I fixed it, it was too late to make my getaway. The other car looks like my ’58 Plymouth Belvedere. That was a pile of junk as well. But it’s not a Plymouth. The grill is wrong. Does anybody know what it is?

    Looks like a 1957 Dodge Kingsway?

    By the way I strongly suspect that the car of Sampson is a MGA. The headlights aren’t as prominent as on a Healey, more typical of the MG style, but then difficult to judge from the angle. Furthermore, the bonnet seems to be more “rounded”. But I could be wrong on both counts………
