I read somewhere this was Tarantino's own personal car.

Confirmed: http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,304701,00.html

Vincent's ride, a '65 Chevy Malibu Super Sport, belongs to the director, who bought it from his pal Martinez after selling his True Romance script in 1989. But since Tarantino never drove the four-speed convertible, he'd planned to total it in one Pulp scene. It survived, however, and now sits parked in story cocreator Roger Avary's yard.

"WHEELS Winston Wolf (Harvey Keitel) drives his $70,000 Acura NSX ''real f---in' fast'' (Tarantino originally wanted a silver Porsche). Vincent's ride, a '65 Chevy Malibu Super Sport, belongs to the director, who bought it from his pal Martinez after selling his True Romance script in 1989. But since Tarantino never drove the four-speed convertible, he'd planned to total it in one Pulp scene. It survived, however, and now sits parked in story cocreator Roger Avary's yard. Stripped of his getaway car, Butch (Bruce Willis) finds the keys to Zed's custom-designed Harley-Davidson chopper 4, which is branded with the name of Tarantino's girlfriend, Grace."

This lady isn't even close.

First off, Tarantino himself came up with the idea for the NSX.

Yes, Tarantino bought the Chevelle from Martinez, and THEN stored it at Avary's house BEFORE thew film was made. When the film was prepping, that Chevelle was brought on as well as a "double" which was crashed into the front of "Lance's" house. It never sat parked in a yard. It was stored at a PF crew member's condo in the South Bay for a year. After the success of the film, Tarantino retrieved it--using it as his daily driver--and it was subsequently stolen from the street in front of his house and never seen again. (That hasn't stopped some shady characters from insisting that they have "the car!")

"Grace" was the name of Tarantino's EX-girlfriend, long before filming the movie. It was an homage. Almost every vehicle in a Tarantino film is a shout-out to somebody he knew/or knows, who had or has that particular ride.

Reported online 4/27/13:

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say the classic Chevrolet convertible featured in the film "Pulp Fiction" has been found nearly two decades after it was stolen.

The San Bernardino County Sun reports (http://bit.ly/15ZvJWK ) movie director Quentin Tarantino's 1964 Chevelle Malibu was recovered in the San Francisco Bay area earlier this week.

John Travolta's character drove the cherry red car in the movie.

Sheriff's Sgt. Albert Anolin said an investigation into an old Malibu in the desert city of Victorville on April 18 led detectives to another Malibu in the Oakland area. They then confirmed that vehicle belonged to Tarantino and was reported stolen in 1994.

Authorities say the car's current owner is not believed to be involved in its theft and is considered to be a victim of a fraud.

A message seeking Tarantino's comment was not immediately returned.

He only spent 35,000 dollars restoring it, then had to return it to Tarantino, whom he had never heard of. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpQTgQoO06k
