Are you interested in the actual car used in the movie, Zippy? The one shown in Slide 16?

I'm a little late to this discussion, but where is the 1961 Ferrari GT California from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off?"

 

Anyone?

 

Bueller?

Had two close friends with GTO's.  One still has his..... a '67 GTO ragtop, with a scraped out Chevy 427 & four speed.  Dark blue metallic w/ white interior & ragtop.  The other was a 1970 JUDGE in orange.....  That one is long since departed by accident!  The other one is relegated to "show-duty" only.....

( Sorry, Charlie! ) I'm not age sensitive either, but I keep bumping into several who are – so  I thought your comment sounded like it – (No Offense!  We can laugh at it together ! )

Thanks for the heads-up on all those GTOs, GTOlover. I think we're getting closer to Best Movie Cars, Part 2.

Interesting link, Nancy. I'm not sure the Flintstones car is completely fictional, however. Many years ago, I owned a '65 Chevy Bel Air with a rusted-out floor in the back. I could have put my feet through it and pushed it forward like Fred Fintstone.

Since I am a GTO lover, might I suggest these cars from various movies:

1967 GTO - Vin Diesel drove in Triple XXX

1970 GTO Judge - in Two Lane Blacktop (classic movie)

1969 GTO (highly modified) - Monkeemobile

1969 GTO - the 2004 release of The Punisher movie

There were several other various GTOs used as props and cameos, but these listed used the car extensively.

I must also point out the grandfather of cars that really isn't a car: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!

Gee, I didn't realize I was making an age-related comment, JimT. I just meant that I had never seen the movie. I am old enough to have watched it, by the way, but I didn't see it because I didn't think it would have enough car crashes.

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!
