The Ford Mustang Mach 1 features rather infamously in Diamonds are Forever. In one stunt the Mustang has to wheelie down a narrow alleyway. When the car enters the alleyway its on its right side but when it emerges from the otherside its on the left side. The continuity error was apparently due to a  crowd of onlookers who ruined the exit shot, so the stunt was shot again but on the opposite side.
