You're right about Smokey & the Bandit, GTOlover. I should have incuded that and I should have included the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazard. I think I feel another movie car slideshow coming on.

How could you have missed "The Bandit" (1978 Trans Am) with Burt Renyolds and Sally Fields? The whole premise of the show and its sequels is as much the car as the actors!

I also saw plenty of new movies so nothing about the Autobots? They made three movies with those vehicles!

And since some of the television shows were mentioned, the batmobile, the monkee mobile, KITT, and then the Magnum PI Ferrari. Wow, maybe another list is due!

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.
