Surely the Italian Job refers to the classic original 1969 movie with proper Mini Coopers, Alfa Giulia Supers, Fiat Dino Coupes, E-types, Aston DB4 and the classic opening scene featuring a Muira and a Bulldozer...it can't refer to that dreadful remake from 2003. Is the original one still available in the US?

Have to add the Jag E-type hearse conversion in Harold & Maude.

And to add a TV show car, my all-time favorite is the "Dragula" from an episode of the Munsters TV show where Herman loses the family car in a drag race and Grandpa builds a racecar to win back the other car - classic!
