The Seven Ups...
The Charger in Bullitt and the Grand Ville in The Seven Ups were both driven by Bill Hickman, probably the greatest stunt driver of all time. He also drove that poor Le Mans that gets beat to hell in The French Connection. I love how the other henchman is practically peeing his pants while Hickman cooly whips that ginormous Pontiac through New York. It's like flying a battleship:
Hickman helped coordinate both car chases, which is why there's a similarity between the two, particularly the shotgun scene. And Hickman came up with the dramatic ending in The Seven Ups.
Hickman did a little bit of acting, too. I love that "Oh, shit!" look in his eyes when he sees Steve McQueen's Mustang in his rear view mirror.
That scene really makes me want an early Grand Ville...
Oconn, they're both Quentin Tarantino movies.
The license plates give this one away.
No, Chad, neither of the two are Tarentino movies. One is the original of a film remade acouple of years ago. Both it and the remake were made in Italy. The original was far superior to the remake. Both involved Mini Coopers.
The Jaguar was the car driven by the star and title character of this TV series.
