Thank you for identifying this movie, I was looking for this info.

I love that picture of the triumph spitfire (mk3?) with the girl in the back and all the guys at the front. I own one and that's pretty much what happens.

Second picture from the top, the bonny lass on the Sunbeam Tiger--Rowrr!

The girl standing next to the pink Volvo was a Playboy Playmate of the Year. The pink Volvo was one of her prizes. The photo appeared in Playboy magazine.

The E-type with the flat tyre... that's Ursula Andress in a scene from the 1965 Elio Petri film "The Tenth Victim."

What the heck is that ugly, boxy thing with the backward-slanting rear window?

The girl standing next to the pink Pantera was also a Playboy Playmate of the Year. The pink car was one of her prizes. The photo appeared in Playboy magazine.

That ugly boxy thing with the backward-slanted rear window is a 1960s Citroen Ami - I'm quite fond of ugly cars but that one is startling!

I see there's a couple of shots of XKEs from the movie "Diabolik" here.

nice. i've always been fascinated with vintage cars. although i'm also into racing and sports cars, i would never mind taking a look at vintage cars. perhaps something to compliment my dragdreams.

The "bonny lass" on the Sunbeam tiger is Jo Collins-that's her 1965 playmate of the year car.
