    She was born in Detroit on an automobile assembly line, but she is no ordinary

    white 1958 Plymouth Fury whose unique standard equipment includes an evil, indestructible
    vengeance that will destroy anyone in her way. She seduces 17-year-old Arnie Cunningham
    (Keith Gordon) who becomes consumed with passion for her sleek, rounded chrome-laden body.
    She demands his complete and unquestioned devotion and when outsiders seek to interfere, they
    become the victims of Christine's horrifying wrath. John Carpenter brings Stephen King's best-

    It's funny that any FYE that you scan the actual title, it shows the trailer but it seems to not be included on this SE DVD but if it scanned and the trailer showed, it usually indicates that it's on one of the Columbia/Tri Star DVDs (Flatliners, perfect example, not on the DVD but on the 13th Floor DVD). Does anyone know which DVD has the Christine trailer?
