CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE featured 1967 GTO. Excellent chance to own a rare, high quality muscle car AND an unbelievable movie memoribilia item from hit movie featuring Cameron Diaz, Demi Moor. The car is spotlighted in the beach scene (as well as few other scenes) where Cameron Diaz is holding surfboard and trying to distract bad guy Rodrigo Santoro. I included a pic from the movie. Comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity from studio.
Runs very strong and drives great!!! Factory 400 HO engine, 4 speed transmission with Hurst shifter . (If you really get on the gas pedal, this beast will slam you into your seat). Paint is very nice, but not perfect...understandably for its age it has a few nicks, scratches in the paint. Overall, a wonderful wonderful car that gets alot of attention. I cannot count the times people/strangers have come up and asked if they can take pictures or for me to put it in a car show. It attracts so much interest and even moreso especially when people hear of its movie theatre history. Its a DOUBLE WHAMMY....classic muscle car AND hit movie memoribilia. Really makes for a nice collectible car that is only going to go up in value. Being sold as is.
DONT MISS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF AUTO AND MOVIE HISTORY.
Ford buyers appear to love their cars more than customers of any other automotive brand, returning back to the American automaker when it comes time to purchase their next vehicle. According to a study by Experian Automotive, six of the top 10 vehicles for customer brand loyalty wear badges from the Blue Oval. That includes the Ford Fusion (62.4 percent), Ford Edge (57.9 percent), Ford Five Hundred/Taurus (56 percent), Ford Freestyle (51.9 percent), Ford Escape (49.4 percent) and the Ford Focus (47.57 percent).
Other vehicles making up the top 10 include the Toyota Prius (52 percent), Chevy Impala (51.7 percent), Toyota Camry (47.8 percent) and Toyota Corolla (47.56 percent). This brings up an interesting question: With the closing of automotive brands like Saturn and Pontiac, where are those buyers to turn for their next automotive purchase?
Apparently, not back to General Motors. According to Experian, Pontiac owners are most likely to look to the Ford lineup for their next car or truck and Saturn shoppers will switch to Toyota or Honda - not particularly surprising given that Saturn was meant to compete with import brands. Experian predicts that GM's overall market share will fall from 20 percent to about 17.5 percent, with most of the slack being picked up by Ford, Honda and Toyota.
Say what you will about The Monkees, but the guys in the band had great taste in automobiles. Take the Monkeemobile, for example. Built off a 1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible, the custom featured genuinely interesting bodywork and some wild engine bolt-ons. If you're a fan of 1960s pop and yearn to relive the genre's glory days, eBay Motors may have what you need. A recreation of the 1967 Monkeemobile has showed up for auction. This particular replica was built by Dakota County Customs using an four-speed GTO, just like the original.
Built for the band's 45th anniversary and the final Monkees tour last year, this Monkeemobile is faithful down to every last detail. Unfortunately, the trumpet exhaust poking out of the front fender wells and the massive gold-flake blower are for show only. Seems fitting.
If you like what you see, this machine is up for bid in Richfield, Minnesota with two days left on the auctions. So far, bidding as whipped up to $60,000 with the reserve not met. Head over to eBay Motors to have a look.
General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.
