Thread: Does Anyone Know Why?

    Does Anyone Know Why?

    New thoughts to post.

    Does anyone know why Christine's odometer was running backwards? I was curious about this. Did her union with Arnie make her feel younger? Was she sapping his life-energy so she could be younger?

    What did that mean? Your thoughts are all appreciated!

    As Christine was transforming back from ruins into her glorious state her odometer rolled backwards and also Arnie was transforming as well. If You review the movie You will see when found her odometer had 93,000 miles on it and as Arnie was fixing Christine up the mileage lowed

    And here You can see Christine starting to transform and the odometer is now 88,000 miles

    Arnie was supposed to be transforming back to the 1950's too wasn't he?? I thought it was all part of the car possessing the owner and returning back to it's glory days. Arnie was transforming into the original Lebay character and the car was going back to their youth together. It was a bit of a 'Portrait of Dorian Grey' kinda idea.

    It rolled back to 0 because it was getting newer until it returned to its birth rite; evil incarnate.

    In the book Arnie pushed Christine backwards around Darnell's junkyard.

    As he did so the Odo was going backwards and Christine was restoring back to her original state.
    Everything's good!

    Lee's right and Arnie also ended up with a back brace like the former owner.

    Arnie Cunningham: Well, isn't that what you're supposed to do with sh*t? Scrape it up with a little shovel?

    Arnie Cunningham - All of this because some drunk ran over that sh*tter Welch?

    Arnie Cunningham - you just saddle up and ride along with all those other sh*tters.
