To clarify the apparent confusion over this film:
The Junkman is NOT Deadline Auto Theft. Both films have been referred to as Gone in 60 Seconds II, which is the source of some confusion.
Gone in 60 Seconds (the original) is perhaps the best car chase movie ever made. Deadline Auto Theft is nothing more than Gone in 60 Seconds with some of the scenes replaced by an inferior new subplot about a Sheriff out to catch the auto thieves, but his plot goes absolutely nowhere (He is never involved in any of the chases, nor do they resove his storyline. He simply disappears). Many of the original scenes which were replaced have to do with the mechanics of autotheft and character development, thus ruining a great film.
The Junkman is nothing more than a vanity piece. In The Junkman, Halicki (the director of Gone in 60 Seconds, owner of a junkyard, and collector of toys) plays a junkyard owner who collects toys and just finished directing a film coincidentally called "Gone in 60 Seconds". Most of the film consists of him showing off his toy and car collections. What little plot there is consists of one of his investors trying to create publicity for the film by destroying a lot of cars participating in a road race by, e.g., dropping bombs on them from a plane, and by attempting to kill Halicki before he can make it to the film's premiere. Unlike Gone in 60 Seconds, the chases are totally unexciting, build no suspense, and do not showcase any skillfull driving (I mean on part of the fictional characters, not the stunt drivers).
