The cars used in Total Recall's 1990 were designed and produced by Mike Fennel Enterprises at Saugus, in California.

Lots of car models have been adapted for the film, I do not deal with this subject here, but it's worth looking, there are beautiful cars !
At least 3 taxis were manufactured, only one will remain in a Museum after the film. Where did the others go ?

Rob Bottin was drawn to horror movie monsters early on, he quickly started drawing his own creatures. At the age of 14 years, he decides to send his creations to his idol, Rick Baker, who hires him on the spot. They then work side by side on the shooting of several films. He will be the director of special effects for Total Recall and he will choose Robert Picardo from Star Trek because he loved the look, to create Johnny, the taxi driver who will upset Arnold Schwarzenegger from their first meeting ! 

A taxi is still visible at the Miami Auto Museum.

When we visit the Total Recall page on the Museum, we realize that the taxi is for sale at the price of 34.995 $ ! lol

Founder of mm2 France, oto6, then from Sixmania. The 6 wheels and more have always been a passion for me. It started in 1980 thanks to a certain Christian de Léotard, you know ?
