Charles, I'm laughing over here, at  -- "By the way, there's no way I would have known this."  You can add: "...because I was a mere toddler in cloth diapers that year! – why,  just how old do you think I am ?!?! "

I love the T-Bird From American Grafitti!  My favorite next to the DeLorean.

Great website list, Nancy. By the way...the movie Christine (number 9 on that list) has been getting a lot more play in recent years, as Stephen King's popularity has risen.

You get the Obscure Fact of the Day Award, Nadine. You are absolutely correct. According to the Internet Movie Car Database, Taylor drove a 1960 Sunbeam Alpine Series 1 in the movie. By the way, there's no way I would have known this. I looked it up here:

Didn't Elizabeth Taylor drive a Sunbeam in Butterfield8?  It was an awesome car.  It's a pity that bad girls always have to die in old movies...(youtube clip)

The scene where Dustin Hoffman runs out of gas in the Alfa Romeo is etched in many memories, Liz. Wayne's World also did a good send-up of that scene. ("Ah, yes, Gordon Street...")

Maybe the Bond you're forgetting is Timothy Dalton, Liz. I believe he only did two Bond movies.

The Alfa Romeo's use in "The Graduate" is also a classic. Definitely one of the best stylized uses of a car ever in a film. I can still see him winding his way up to Northern California in search of a girl in my mind. That said, there is only a subtle difference between these two car classics, so I can see why you would think they were the same, JimT.

Thanks for clarifying that, far911. Seems like the BMW switch was just as forgettable as Pierce Brosnan's turn as Bond! ;) (Sorry for people who liked him.) Although wasn't there some other guy after him that was even more forgettable? I think most agree that Sean Connery, Roger Moore and now Daniel Craig make the best Bonds.
