YAK Car Pic of the Day

81 monte romeo+juliet

Okay, the pic quality isn’t the best, but when I saw this 1981 Chevy Monte Carlo, from the 1996 movie Romeo + Juliet, I had to share it. It looks like something from The Simpsons or Family Guy, but it’s a real car, customized for the Capulet family (Leonardo DiCaprio, who played Romeo, drove another customized Monte, this one a convertible). We didn’t watch this movie, but saw a snippet of it during an interview with director Baz Luhrmann on the latest episode of the TCM series The Story of Film: An Odyssey
