YAK Car Pic of the Day

1970 galaxie cleopatra jones 1973

Because you never know who’s looking, or what they’re looking for, here’s today’s pic — a request I’ve been trying to fulfill for the past couple of years: a 1970 Ford Galaxie 500, in blue. Haven’t passed one live and in person yet, so last night I tracked this one down on the InternetMovieCarDatabase (IMCDb). It’s from the 1973 blaxploitation flick Cleopatra Jones, whose main character (whom the movie was named after), according to the movie’s description, is a Bond-like heroine who drives a ’73 Sting Ray (below).This blue Galaxie was used in a chase scene — and what’s a spy movie without a good chase scene?

73 stingray

    Nothing could lean through a corner like those full sized Ford barges of the late 60s – early 70s.
