Memphis - actually Dustin does not drive a Graduate in The Graduate. He drove a '67 Spider Duetto. The Graduate was a model sold in the 80s to the US market to try to cash in on the popularity of the movie and the prominent role the car had.

Another movie that had a Spider was Wayne's World 2. They recreate a scene from the Graduate (the whole movie is a bit of a spoof). But rather than a '67 it looks like they use a '69 since it has headrests. Other details that differ are the use of a sump guard and non-standard wheels.

what a great commercial, man that alfa looks so sweet, no wonder its so popular on this forum

Current: 89' Milano Gold(sold)
Next: 164 S

Be warned though, Alfas can have a strange effect on owners; ‘Alfaholic’ a recognised condition among car enthusiasts

And no wonder there's like five or six threads mentioning it.

In the movie "Fletch" Chevy Chase commandeers a S2 Spider from a kid who's trying to steal it. Includes some cheesy low-speed chase scenes on Shoreline Drive in Long Beach.

Another Bond film with Roger Moore featured a GTV-6 I believe.

****, you got me...

OT: Uptime 77 days now and I only took it down for som maintenance.
I'll have it down some time in December or January to move it into a larger chassis (more disks). I build the chassis myself in wood to make them silent and stealth.

So, I really don't get it. Why would they use an Alfa from the 60s that hardly any knows about or has seen in the states (except for alfisti, most people I have talked to have never even heard of Alfa Romeo). I mean in the other commercials they use new Chevy Cavaliers. It is AWESOME but just don't get the marketing strategy? mabey they are trying to show that the XM radio fits in older cars to? the car looks so nice though that it looks like it is brand new in the commercial!
