Chuck, I was really upset when they destroyed the DB5 is Skyfall.  It broke my heart.  I guess they were trying to make a break from the past, but that was a cruel way to do it.

For me Aston Martin is the best and none of the new cars can match it at any point. These new cars might have new features but this Aston Martin is a classic which cannot be replaced

Nice slide show, Chuck. My favorites were the cars from American Graffiti. Nice to see that in Neede for Speed, Aaron Paul has a major role after Breaking Bad.

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.

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.

Someday I'll drive 88 MPH in Doc Brown's DeLorean.

Rich, you should only do it if you need to generate 1.21 jiggaWatts.

I think the Skyfall producers were sending us a message, naperlou.

When I was pullig this slideshow together, Nadine, I watched a Youtube clip of the Bullitt scene again. One of the best things in the scene is the sound of the cars. Here it is:

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!
