In My Cousin Vinny, Vinny calls the local sheriff, ask to run records check & so he run the test at Vinny's request which leads to Billy & Stan release out of case. This is happened after when Vinny find some clue in Vito's photos.

What exactly records does Vinny asking sheriff to check?


1 Answer 1


Vinny knows that the tiremarks were made by either a car similar to Billy's Buick Skylark or a 1963 Pontiac Tempest, because he knows both have similar wheel bases, tire sizes, body types and independent suspension. So he asks the sherriff if anyone had recently been arrested driving a 1963 Pontiac Tempest, and they did discover an arrest of a similar nature where the perpetrators were driving a Tempest.
