The Rundown, 2003. Seann William Scott (Dude, Where's my car) while down in the Amazon hides behind a Yellow Ghia during the shoot out near the end of the movie. It looses all its glass and gets a few bullet holes to boot.

I just watched this movie Saturday on HBO... there was also a red bug that ends up on it's side and an orange bay window in the same shoot out scene. Movie wasn't bad either...

I watched The Rundown again last night and saw the red bug (on it's side) and lots of shots of the orange bay which survies the big shoot out. We both forgot to say that there were also a couple of rail buggies in this movie too. I guess they count as VWs, right?

The Rundown has several in it (sorry if it's been mentioned).

Someone mentioned a Type 3 getting shot up in "Rundown", but there was lots of VW destruction in that film. A Ghia gets shot up, Rails blown apart , Bay bus smashed up.

Weird stuff with the radio set out back... neat that the Buses are RHD though but I guess that makes sense since it was shot in the UK

The name of the movie is “The Quatermass Xperiment” Shot in B/W 1955
It is a science fiction cheap imitation of War of the Worlds B movie and I’ll often waste an hour or two watching some stuff like that. As it begins much to my enjoyment an early type 2 is featured but then watch what happens.

Looking good on their way to the alien crash site. Suddenly it becomes a 23 window bus.

I watched the Thursday preview of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood-Quentin Tarantino’s newest offering. It did not disappoint on a multitude of levels. Brad Pitt drives a light blue Ghia convertible in the film. He absolutely drives the piss out of this car which is funny to see. In addition to that though, is a plethora of VWs in both background and driving shots. I even spotted a blue Barndoor bus at one point, which reppears throughout the movie if you pay attention. I lost count of the number of ovals in the film. There’s even one that’s been stripped down to a shell in Manson’s “chop shop” at Spahn’s Movie Ranch. Being set in the summer of 1969 in LA I expected to see some VWs in the movie, but I was blown away. I highly recommend checking this movie out. It was like going back in time for the 3 hours I was watching the film and getting a glimpse of what LA must’ve been like in the summer of love.

The Ghia Brad Pitt was flogging sounded pretty healthy...assuming the engine sound effect wasn’t added later. Sharon Tate drives a really nice 911S but it looks like a 72 to me. So about 4 years too new for the time it’s set in. Anyone else notice the Hebmuller drive by in a later scene? I also noticed the BD used in multiple scenes as well as the super. Still a great movie...all the cars were worth the watch.


The barndoor parked in the street, look like this one no ?
