YAK Car Pic of the Day

Boo! Hiss!

Boo! Hiss!

Just saw the movie called The Heat, with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, and was trying (unsuccessfully) to find an online pic of the old Rambler Classic driven by McCarthy’s character. One thing led to another, and I found this old 1966 Toyopet (Toyota) Crown, being driven by a bunch of n’er-do-wells in the 1967 James Bond movie You Only Live Twice. During one of the chase scenes, a helicopter appears overhead with a large magnet dangling from its bottom, picks up the Toyopet, and deposits it in the sea. Now that’s service!
