While the Deuce coupe may suggest Southern California, the woody suggests surfing and the Southern Califonia beach. Some artists like Jan and Dean and the Beach Boys helped make many of those classic images through their songs.
Of course the Aston Martin had to be the first one you mention, Chuck! It is still the movie car of all movie cars, I think. Though I do love the scenes of the Mustang zooming around San Francisco in Bullitt. This was a fun one to look through, thanks!
Any reference to Bullitt makes me happy. I grew up in San Francisco and learned to drive in my mom's '68 Mustang. I'd lower my eyes to look cool and have one those fake candy cigarettes hanging out of my mouth. In my heart, I WAS Steve McQueen.
To this day, I drive a little too fast over certain hills in the city, catching air. But now, I loose my cool and giggle when I do.
Off all of the Bond films, Skyfall held the most symbolism. They really used that movie as a vehicle (pun intended) to move the Bond franchise into the 21st century by reinventing some characters, killing off others, facing Bond's childhood and destroying the car.
Very cathartic. But, that has set up high expectations for the next film.
I have to say that if Bond ends up in a Telsa, I'll be a little upset. That is no follow up to the DB5.

Others refer to it as the Connected Industry, the smart factory concept, M2M, data extraction, and so on.
