I rented "Bundy" a little while ago, but instead of a Gold 1303 it was a Yellow standard, and it was featured in alot of scenes. There are probably a few different Ted Bundy movies out there.

I remember turning on the tv one night roughly 10 years ago and saw a scene where two guys are riding in a small car through a large open area and hundreds of Beetles go flying past them. I didn't have time to watch the rest and never found out what it was called. Anyone seen this or have a clue what movie I'm talking about. I'd like to see it again.

It's not a film, but the in the Japanese anime FLCL I've seen a new Beetle, a Rabbit, a Squareback, and a 411. Most of 'em get destroyed, good thing it's animated :) Also, there's an episode of Futurama where Fry gets a VW bus from a 20th century archeological dig.

how about the first season of "Dukes of Hazzard" i got that on DVD the other day and there are tons of vws in it every chase through town there is a bus or a bug

There's also this movie from the 70's called "The Great American Traffic Jam." It's never on TV anymore, and you probably can't even rent it, but it was always on TV when I was a kid. There's tons of VWs- in that- bugs, busses, and a Thing driver plays a significant role.

theres a blue bug in the shaeshank redemption, just as brooks walks into the half way house, i theink that there is also a green one when he is in the park.

I was watching "Cowboy Bebop The Movie" this afternoon, (an animated movie). It's based in 2071 on mars, and there's a whole bunch of cars that look just like bugs and busses...

In "Spaceballs, The Movie" by Mel Brooks they drive or I guess I should say fly in a hover craft that looks just like a type 181 Thing with out wheels. The part where they are in the desert.

timp Tue Sep 14, 2004 11:55 am

Spaceballs: on the desert planet, Dark Helmet's hover car was a Thing
The Haunting: the snotty chick drove a red ghia vert (i think she drove it through the gate tho)
50 First Dates: Drew Berrymore drove a Thing


god, there are so many of them...

nobrakes Tue Sep 14, 2004 12:08 pm

In one of the Cheech and Chong movies I think Born in east LA there is a pink vert. The movie Speed has a yellow Thing, There is a commercial on now that has a yellow thing in it but you only see it from the inside out.
