Vanishing Point - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067927/

Race with an E Type, great scene until he rolls it!

Poor lighting, S3 XJ, Smoke Machines... Whitesnake video?



No, but something equally corny: Underworld.





Was OK up to the point where they drove it into a river...

(Exhausts look stupid, why can't people just leave well enough alone?)

The Jaguar XK8 in Two and Half Men is an 03-04 model convertible. It's that brown color that's darker than gold. Saw it on the episode that had Darma in it where she is crazy and moves in with them.

Entrapment (old Sean Connery flic)-they're driving a 97-99 XK8/R it gets pretty beat up and in the same scene and older XJ40 rolls by when they're still parked. The whole scene takes place in London somewhere. Pretty decent movie too. lol.

Both Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace have scenes that show the XJ. In fact the bad guy in Casino Royale drives an XJ...

A movie from the late eighties called "52 Pick" up with Anne Margaret and Roy Schieder.
In 1988 you could rent it on video. Roy Schieder's character drive's a series III E type drophead,
with a hard top that he hoists to the ceiling of his garage.
Anne Margaret plays his wife who gets kidnapped.
In the end he bl...wait have you seen it? Or do you even care?
Ok then he blows it up to save Anne Margaret from the bad guys,
then they walk away together while it explodes killing the bad guys.

Default Eric Roberts is "Casket Mike"

OK Next post:

How about keeping your eyes peeled for two NEW movies featuring Jaguars.
First and easiest is a remake of Charles Bronsons "The Mechanic".
The character drives a red e type fixed head. It gets stolen.
What is it with all these bad endings for Jags anyway?
This one is out this year, not expecting much though.

The best coming movie is "A New York Heart beat" starring Eric Roberts, as Casket Mike,
a gangster who's choice of ride is a 1950 Jaguar MK V. Nice?
I have it on good authority that NOTHING happens to the Jag in the movie.
As a bit of trivia the guy who plays Casket Mike's driver is the real life owner of the georgeous old MK V.
He even wears his own hat!
This movie is still in post production but it shouldn't be long now...I have been counting the days for months now.
Waiting to see Julia's brother as "Casket Mike".

Harold had an E Type converted into a hearse style wagon in Harold and Maude. Great movie, but the E Type is totalled when driven off a cliff.

Has anyone seen the Mechanic? How much screen time does the E type get?

1980's Ali McGraw drives an E type I think, in the movie "Convoy", passes Kris Kristofferson in a Mack Truck causing him to almost run into a state trooper, then sells the car at a truck stop
