1973 American Graffiti.

Many cars featured have been replicated by toy and model manufactures including a Jaguar Mk II and a Morris Minor!

That is just what I was thinking. Thanks for confirming. That is I assume your correct.

I don't recall seeing a Jaguar or Morris Minor in the film but I can't forget Richard Dreyfuss's Citroen.


Anyone have a model of that 1932 Ford Coupe Hot Rod?

Closest I come is a Moto Max 1:24 scale '34 Deuce coupe, It is much rounder in the body style.

Trust Rollerman to place an image of the Silver Ghost.

1965 - Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines.

That was a fun film.

Yes ''CCE'' I had to do it at some point Ha! Ha!

You correct and many of the old cars seen in the film have been modelled by various companies including Corgi and Matchbox.

Over to you my friend.

Pretty sure that's from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The scene shortly after Dick Van Dyke's character Caractacus Pots finds the run down rotting car and brings it home to restore. The car is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang regestired as GEN 11. I believe she was a custom invention by the creators of the movie and not a manufactured model although they fitted it with a Ford power train (according to the Internet

Thanks guys. I haven't laughed this hard in ages.

Sorry Rollerman, just missed out.

Congratulations Tick.

1968 - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Potts saves the wreck (a 3 times Grand Prix winner) from going to scrap and creatively restores it.



Looks like a wooden boat and other parts from around the house were utilized in the coachwork.




Restored to full glory.


and imagined as a boat and plane.




A film legend is born, and soon after, a Corgi Toys icon is released.



Over to Tick.
