"MIKEY: [Pause.] I talked to Eddie and Dallas and Roger. They all seen their old cars."
I'm wondering why all the other Brandon-followers saw their old cars when they looked into the wheel...

I'm thinking they saw whatever they have fond memories of and have been involved in. For the other co-workers, they saw their old cars because they work at a tire factory and because they have a passion and appriciation of cars.
Elmore saw images of death, war, and people he used to know. I'm thinking that maybe Elmore got up to some mischief when he was stationed in the Gulf. Perhaps he even committed some crimes:
"ELMORE: ...The few times me and him got leave over in Saudi and got our hands on beers, 'cause them Moslem-ites don't drink, even the good ones..."
