Zippy, I'm researching another movie cars story. What's Two-Lane Blacktop? Is it well known? I have to admit I've never heard of it.

Thanks, Charles.  Somehow i missed the Ferrari in the midst of all the Mustang pictures...  As an alternative, can I offer the '55 Chevy street racer from "Two Lane Blacktop," starring James Taylor?   :)

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.
