I guess the ElCamino is the most prominent?

The 1980s station wagon is an anachronism for a movie that takes place in the 60s/70s.

That is interesting, the VW bug has no fender mounted indicator....

If this movie is suposed to be set in the 60s they have screwed up big time - I see two 80s GM Wagons, a 70s Ford LTD, a couple of 80s Caprice's, and that El Camino is an early 70's model and lastly weren't those big taillights introduced on the bug in the 70s? Bad continuity editor!

By the time the editor gets to see the film, it's too late to fix mistakes like that. :)

Blame the picture car co-ordinator instead.

That one should be listed as 1973/77 Chevrolet El Camino.

It is definitely set in the 60's or 70's. I am not sure what the automobile scene is in Australia, but maybe there just aren't that many 60's American Cars. Plus this is a Child's movie so who would notice?

:think: Yes, I would agree. Colour, white tire-stripes and the back hood with vents and the elephent-foot-lamps are fit with it.

So IMHO it deserves an own page, because of its rarity.

A funny anecdote: the car on my linked pic stands in the AutoStadt in Wolfsburg - and it's restored! The arrival of it in Germany was a horrible embarrassing PR-desaster for Volkswagen. :lol:
With a big hoo-ha, with many jounalists and film-teams, etc., the container with it was opened on the quai. For the big show "the last ever made VW Typ 1" comes back to Germany!, etc....
When they opened it, in front of all cameras, a big flush of seawater came of o the container. The car itself had many rust-pimples every where and was moulded over and over. :lol:

P.S.I've heard rumours, that the VW-owned car above is not the real least one, only the second last. The real last one shall be picked up by a private collector, the rumours are saying.

Or perhaps the AutoStadt just replaced it with another Ultima Edicion. :)

No, they only have this car. I've been there, when the chairman of the Ultima Edicion-Club http://www.k-ue.de/ was there, too. The AutoStadt got help and parts from them.

You must know, that the managers and employees of the VW-owned classic-car-related projects like AutoStadt, ZeitHaus, Auto Museum Volkswagen and the Classic Parts Center, too, aren't really capable :/ Really, there is a big amount of lackadaisical clowns over there. It's an open secret in the VW-enthusiasts scene.

And it's really painful to see, how they "restore" the exhibited cars. :/ Just disastrous. :cry:
Indeed, the best classic VW's and the best knowledge about them, you'll find at the enthusiasts clubs, not in Wolfsburg.


:think: Do you may be have an idea, who had delivered the parts, that the No.1 is drivable -driveable, not T▄V-conformal roadworthy- again: Link to "de.wikipedia.org" :??: :D
