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.
We like cars, and we like art. Naturally, Chris Labrooy's Auto Aerobics series - computer-generated images of some seriously contorted 1968 Pontiac Bonnevilles floating in mid-air - instantly clicked with us. If the Pontiacs weren't floating or hollow, we could be fooled into believing the image is real. But where's the fun in that?
Check out the gallery we included of Labrooy's Bonneville art, and feel free too head over to his website for some Formula One humor.
Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.
Depending on when and where you grew up, the name David Hasselhoff likely conjures up images of Knight Rider, Baywatch, pop singer, or possibly a washed-up TV actor, but one thing that can never be taken away from The Hoff is his connection to one of the greatest automotive icons in pop culture. The Knight Industries Two Thousand, usually shortened to simply KITT, was the real star of Knight Rider for many fans. Based on a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, the car combined snarky quips for comedy relief and stunts to provide much of the show's actions. Now, Julien's Auctions is selling Hasselhoff's own replica as part of a larger sale of the actor's personal memorabilia collection.
This recreation is based on a 1986 Firebird and comes with all of the tech on the inside that now seems hilariously outdated, like the yoke steering wheel and plethora of buttons. The interior also thoughtfully includes a voice box with over 4,000 sound clips from the show. With a 5.0-liter V8 and an automatic transmission, performance is likely adequate and period correct. According to the listing, this car was created by fans and given to the Hoff. Sadly, the replica doesn't convert to Super Pursuit Mode like KITT could in later seasons, and we most associate KITT with conventional front-hinged doors to go with the power t-tops and ejector seats.
Bidding currently sits $27,500 with eight bids, since starting at $15,000. Julien's predicts it will sell for between $30,000 and $50,000. If there is some nostalgia for KITT in your heart, there is still plenty of time to bid.
