Well, dunno about others, but I use a program called Cyberlink Power DVD. Its a better program than Windows Media Player, plays VCDs and DVDs with good clarity. It also has a "capture screen" button, that can be used both while the movie is running or paused.

Once captured, just open Mspaint and paste the file. And voila, you have your image.

Hey guys!
The other day, I went to see 2012! The opening scene is shot in India I think it was in Bihar/Jharkhand. In the opening scene itself show a Jaguar XK (correct me if I'm wrong) that is painted like a taxi ( with the yellow top). I don't remember the registration, but will take screen shots once I get a copy of the movie! Did any of you guys notice it?
Let me know!
Cheers (to good movies and Classic cars!)

The 1969 Italian Job (The original one) had plenty of beautiful exotic classic cars. There was a gorgeous orange Lamborghini Miura that was crashed in the beginning and then there were two beautiful Jaguar E-Types and an Aston Martin DB5 were also written off. Not to mention the rather cute Minis that survived the ordeal! There was a rather good looking Land Rover as well!

the 1970s Gone in 60 Seconds also had its share of brilliant cars. I had the list but can't find it!

Some of the best cars were seen in the epic flick "The sound of music". I particularly liked the scene where they "push" the getaway car after the final concert, to avoid attention.

Another memorable movie with classic cars was "Dick Tracy". Oooh, what cinematography ! The retro scenes and retro 'gangsta' cars make me want to see the movie again and again !!

Default Marlon Brando and Triumph Thunderbird

The Wild One (1953) was the movie which started it all!!! Before the movie, motorcycle was just another mode of transportation, but after Marlon Brando drove his Triumph Thunderbird 6T on the big screen, bikes become an image of rebellion, machismo, style and wander lust. Though bikers were portrayed as hooligans in the films, their iconic leather style is still followed even today.

Wildone was a cult movie which established the biking scene in Hollywood.Many legends started automobile promotion after this cult movie.Elvis Presley,Steve Mcqueen,Robert Redford etc pioneered in movies and drove many cars and motorcycles.
Vespa was made famous by Rock Hudson and Gregory Peck in Come September and Roman Holiday.

I vividly remember one scene from the wild one. Marlon Brando standing crook-legged beside the saloon door, cigarette dangling from his lips, half crooked stare. Someone walks up to him and says "What are you rebelling against, Johny?". Brando looks up, and with a shrug, asks "What have you got?"

Awesome movie, awesome characters.

You would too, had you seen the movie. I don't think he's trying to prove any point other than highlighting classic bikes in international movies

Another bike movie that comes to mind is Easy Rider. Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper as Captain America and Billy. Crap story, but what an awesome package!

Some photos of George Adamson's Land Rovers (of "Born Free" fame) can be seen on this thread.

Also two hilarious clips of the LR Series 1 from "The Gods Must be Crazy"

I'm surprised no one has mentioned "Bullitt"(1968) here yet. it's FILLED with awesome old cars in the background, and a epic car chase with a Mustang and a Dodge Charger.
