A Chrysler Imperial was the Black Beauty!

  1. Hail Bruce Lee! My favorite guy of all-time. Finito...

    The General Lee in Dukes; the Torino in Starsky & Hutch; the Batmobile; and the Fury in the Blues Brothers get most of the attention. What other famous Hollywood cars were there?

    But take a look at the Black Beauty from the TV series the Green Hornet, where Bruce Lee got his start. Now there's a mighty car, and one with loads of style.

    Actually a 1966 Chrysler Imperial which was rebuilt by Dean Jefferies at a cost of $50,000

    Built-in TV camera that saw 4 miles ahead

    Rockets - front and rear

    Could spread ice over the road

    Knock-out gas in front

    Smoke in rear, also, brushes to sweep away tire tracks

    Here is a fantastic pic of the Black Beauty:

    Swi66 provided a good list of many other tv and movie cars:

    Munster's Coach
    Fireball 500 car
    American Graffitti Cars
    Vanishing Point Challenger
    Eleanor from Gone in 60 seconds
    Bullit Mustang and Charger
    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
    Maxwell Smart's Sunbeam
    James Bond Astin Martin
    John Steed's Bentley
    Mini's used in the "Italian Job"
    Delorean from Back to the future
    Transformer cars
    The Road Warrior's Australian Falcon Interceptor
    Pacer from Wayne's World
    Dan Tanna's T-Bird
    The Corvette from Route 66
    Chrysler Turbine car from "The Lively Set"

    I think I've watched all those cars on TV before. I've got a TV permanently burned into my brain; I've watched so much.

    I guess my memory got jogged a little. I saw a lot of Magnum P.I. back then. If I drove a sports car, it's gotta be the Ferrari: [​IMG]

    I use Notepad for all my coding.

    Well, not all my coding, just stuff that doesn't use Visual Studio. I used to write my programming assignments in Notepad, which the prof hated, but he couldn't complain because they usually compiled on the first try and never failed to run when he got them.

    I've been trying to paste this kind of stuff for awhile, and it hasn't worked. It might be that I'm always trying to do it on my other forum, and they don't have the proper programming to accept it or not. I practiced a lot today in an e-mail to a friend, and it helped. :)

    When I was a small boy, I was crazy about the TV series Mannix. They had a special 1968 "Mannix Roadster" built by the company MPC just for that.

  6. That's cool. I first starting surfing for the first time less than a year ago, August 2007. It has really gotten into my blood.

    I took computer programming in 1982 at Bay Valley Tech in Santa Clara, CA. I was only able to finish BASIC language. FORTRAN forget it. And in between those, nothing.
