Also, every car in that scene is a GM...

They do actually hire a person specifically to look out for goofs. That person is in charge of ensuring that a specific character is dressed in the exact manor, with the same hair style if they are filming a sequence representing a single day (same day in the movie), even it it takes six months to film. They are also responsible for making sure all the cars are for the right period (1930'* doesn't have a 1955 chevy), and gernerally looks out (or is supposed to look out) for errors like that in the Jurasic Park sequense mentioned above. They do catch a lot, but occasionally you will see a jet travel across the sky in a western, or you will see repeat film spliced in twice (Paulie, the scene where Paulie is walking away from the pawn shop, there are two scenes that are identical, with a '70'* Camaro turning the corner--just different dialogue for the parrot), etc.
