Default What is the car / bike or any other vehicle you saw in TV/movie/newspaper?

Whenever i see a car or a bike in a TV ad or in the news paper, I always wonder what car that could be. Sometimes I recognise them but some times fail miserably, most of my friends know about my second home(team-bhp) and look at me for an answer what car it could be.

though there is a thread called "Movie Cars" but i felt the thread has only the cars in movie and shows mostly movie clips and they go un-identified.

Hence this thread.

You can post the pic of the car.
or
you can just mention the car in which ad or serial or movie you have watched it.
It could also be a piece of news in News Channel or in a Newspaper.

Thanks a lot guys. I have seen so many cars/bikes/vehicles many a time in the TV and wonder what those cars could be.

You are not alone, there are a whole lot of team-bhpains who thought so.
Other muscle cars were also suggested, have a look at the thread suggested by bblost.

BTW, even I thought it was a 70s corolla as this was smaller in size vis-a-vis a muscle car.

Hmmm... Salilpawar has done an eagle eyed match. I never knew know that Opel had muscle cars under its name!

Apologies if this had been discussed, but was always curious to know which car is this-
