...also missing the handsome red Spider (tragically, filled completely with water from a cartoon water tower) in Looney Tunes Rides Again.

Alfa Alert!!! Day of the Jackal on TCM tonight at 10:30 Eastern, 9:30 Central. The main character drives a Giulietta, and the sound is pretty good for an oldie. Oh, and the movie is great, too.

The Alfetta was Cameron's car. The California Spyder was his Dad's.

They don't have the Giulietta Spider that's in Fellini's Juliet of the Spirits. (Or was it a Giulia? The movie is from 1965 . . .)

I thought that Cameron had a POS Mazda 323 or something like that. Now I'll have to check, because we have the VHS.

Just saw a late 70's series 2 spider on a mario kart (sp?) Nindendo DS ad. The mechanic is working on a green metallic spider. Wild.

Saw that one too. Roberto's flicks are always good.

What is the name of the movie in which the main character (an undercover cop) drives a black ferrari 250GTE 2+2 (the car sounds totally awesome in the movie ) to pursue a group of bank robber who uses couple of red citroen DS's in order to confuse the police? At the beginning of the movie, the main character drives a green giulia super (undercover patrol car?) but end up rolling it and killing his partner. There are many, many giulia super and alfetta police car painted in light blue with white stripes get smashed in the movie too. I think the movie is produced in Italy in mid-to-late '70s. I have watched it many times in Japan, but have never even heard of it here in the States... Please somebody tell me what the movie is called here in the States!! The movie is just full of Italian cars (not just the 250GTE and alfas... Flaminia coupe driving down the stairs, beta montecarlo in new-car showroom, and hundreds of nuova 500s on the street of Roma etc...).
