This may seem like a strange request, but being a Mustanger most of my life and a bit of a movie buff, I have noticed that there has been alot of recent movies which have a 65-66 Red Mustang Convertible. For instance, last year's Jim Carrey movie "Me, Myself and Irene" featured a 65 vert. "Interview with a Vampire" had one. I'm putting together a list (purely for my own amusement) of movies which star our hero: the Mustang. In addition to "Bullit" and 'Gone..." there seem to be many more out there too. If you know of any others, let me know.

1969 Sportsroof (which is For Sale, by the way)

Don't forget the original Gone in 60 Seconds (early 1970's). Many people over look it.

How about the music video for "White Lion's - Radar Love" remake. I know it's not a movie, but the mustang shots are great. And what about the TV show "Spencer for hire", I think he drove a fastback.

In Hannabal the woman detective drives a 5.0 LX. And one Segal movie has him driving a black 71-73 fastback.

I wish I remembered the name of the movie but here's a descrip - it was a comedy of a guy getting shrunk in a machine and injected into another man (Martin Short?). Throughout the movie they talk to each other and it seems like Short is talking to himself. They save the day and the shrunk guy gets back to normal size...well, anyway, in this movie, the car is a '68? red convertible (I want to say 350GT but not sure)...a really NICE car...

I know you already mentioned 'Bullitt' but if you want to know more than many people about the movie check-out Wolfgang Kohrn's web-site from Germany "http://www.people.freenet.de/pony/index2.htm"

In the movie Apollo 13, Gary Busey is driving a '65 (?) GT350 and leaves Tom Hanks in his Corvette in the dust at a stop light.

Here's another Jim Carrey movie - "The Mask". An early Mustang convertible driven by the cute redhead reporter is used as Stanley's (Jim Carrey) getaway car. It is a night scene, the top is up, the bullets just bounce off the back bumper. She (the reporter) "vamp's" for like 20 minutes then turns Stanley in for the reward money - what a world we live in.

There is a movie with Steve Gutengurg and the twins from Full House as well as Kirstie Alley(from Cheers). Don't recall the name, but it was basically a remake of "The Parent Trap". Anyway, Steve Gutenburg's character drives a '65 GT Conv.

How about the 4wd shelby convertable in the remake of The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)? At least they gave it the impression of being a 4wd. Another one is Metro, with Eddie Murphy, that had a 69 or 70 Sportsroof, I think a Boss 302, very cool.

Remembered another one, in my favorite all time movie, Grand Prix with James Gardner, he drives an early Shelby Mustang also.

About as far afield as possible--the Thomas the Tank Engine movie has a red 67 convertible in it and the new movie "Blow" has a Brittany Blue Shelby in the previews (haven't seen the movie).

I've got all the James Bond cars in 1:64 put out by Johnny Lighting. Obviously they have the Diamonds are Forever mustang, but they also have a '65 for Dr. No. What's wierd is I watched the movie last weekend and didn't spot it. If it's in there, it isn't there for very long!

Goldie hawn and Steve martin in Housesitter, Stallone in Lock-up (they build and break a 65 Stang in under 13 minutes of film!!!) Very worthwhile the last one, both for the car and the story.

I can't remember the name of the movie, but there was a Jane Fonda (yeck!) movie back in the late sixties that featured her driving a red Mustang convertible around the French countryside (I think the movie was made by Roger Vadim who was her "affair d'amor" at the time).

Sean Connery's Aston Martin can-opens the side of a 64 1/2 convertible with his extended knock-off.
She forgave him though...:)

Here's one no one will remember: in the movie Twins Arnold Swartzanegger (sp????) drives a mid 80's GT on two wheels in a parking lot.
There was also a movie, I think it was an Eddie murphy movie ( I want to say vampire in brooklin but I really don't think that's it) where the bad guy drives a 67-68 fastback and tries to run the good guy down w/ it. sweet car.
Personally I don't like mustangs in the movies; they always seem to tear them to pieces or blow them up. I wanted to cry at the end of "gone" that was an awesome 67. I will never watch that movie again just because of that.
