After Wolfgang Glück, here comes Gottfried Reinhardt ruling a

… but he's got the American citizenship.

Located in a small German town in 1960, populated by a bunch of German vehicles, some pre-WWII, and animated by a tense Kirk Douglas.

For if there is no junkyard, neither plane, nor traffic light, it's nevertheless a very good movie.

The next trip will be with a monte-charge.

In the mean time, please do me a favour: identify the namelesses.

NB: the two Chevrolet Bel Air are part of a goof I read about on IMDb board.

I found the original song —and only theme of the score— ubiquitous and embarrassingly bad, the main weakness of the movie for me.

I clearly remember in the first part of this movie a rare Fiat 1400 Cabriolet somewhere parked.

Too bad I completely missed your clear souvenir.

(Anyway, I'm going to re-watch it: I spent too much time on the vehicles, the first time, not enough on the story proper. I swear I'll nail any Fiat 1400 Cabriolet trying to avoid my attention.)

After the re-watch, here are my left-overs:

40 seconds after the beginning, before the opening credits, a two-second shot. Is the white car a rare Fiat 1400 Cabriolet?

Otherwise, the beginning of a simili-panoramique ending here /vehicle_633268-Opel-Caravan-1955.html shows this:

… and I'm not sure that there is or there is not a rare Fiat 1400 Cabriolet somewhere clearly parked around, though I must admit that I don't know much about cars.

But the film is greater after this second seeing for me now.

A white Fiat 1400 cabriolet indeed :)
In the last thumb I see a cute BMW 600 (but really too small to be listed...).

Naaah, ingo, stop scratching your chest to the blood, it's nobody fault's but theirs… First, the copy I had was rather bad, then, manifestly, the director hadn't a license plate eye

There is not any film-director at all, nowhere, never, which ever had an eye for that. [:kiki] Even in the biggest blockbusters -especially there to be precise- you see the most shittiest movie-fake-plates.
For a real plate-connaisseur only random background cars are interesting. And for a fan for German plates especially the years after 1956 (the years 1945-1948, too). Maybe scenes from the former DDR between 1990-1993, too.
