Re: "I doubt that it was slayton, however the custom Ford that CJ posted up there has reminded me quite a bit of the 1955 Lincoln Futura  prototype show car...

...which was featured quite heavily in the 1959 rom-com It Started with a Kiss which starred Glenn Ford and Debbie Reynolds..."

 Was siftin' through this thread's earlier posts and was surprised that this Dionysian dandy didn't get more response - especially when considering its futura:

Powerful.  Loud.  Fast.  But not nice.

Didn't mean to upset you, but here's from my op:

So there you are, blithely watching something--a movie, or TV show, or something, all unsuspecting, and someone drives up, and gets out, and--wait a minute. . . .you can't help saying to yourself:  That's a nice car!:

Now, that's nice.

 Sorry for snapping back like that.  While I acknowledge that I was stretchin' the chutes on your Topic here with the entry, I was partially referencing the 2013 movie;otherwise, I would not have pushed 'em up to the line.

Nice! Bond preferred the V-8 Tiger version.

My gal Stef and the car designed by master custom car builder Gene Winfield named the "Piranha" and which was featured in the TV series The Man (and The Girl) from U.N.C.L.E.:

(...I'd guess John DeLorean might've seen this car at one time and before he started out on his own little venture)

Threads get stretched every which way here.  That's fine with me, 'cause it increases the post count and keeps the thread going.  And you did have a movie angle, so you get points for that.  I'll just mark that down here. . . .

 The same is true for me:

1965 Autobianchi Bianchnia in How to Steal A Million (1966):

Pinch-its-cheek-adorable, but nice?

Maybe I should start a That's a Cute Car! thread.

The counterpart in the movie is 1965 Jaguar E-Type (4.2)

I am not sure that: 'nice' is a sufficient description of it.

Oh, nice sure is.  But I've posted the E-type (The Most Beautiful Car Ever in the World) a couple of times in this thread, so I felt hesitant about mentioning it.  But that doesn't mean I'm not happy to see others post it.

 Speaking of June Ellen's DONUTS in the context of film, the establishment's space eventually was occupied by a BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO at one time.

The best pictures I've seen of Van Nuys Boulevard cruising - LA Observed

(...btw NS...down in my neck of the L.A. woods back then, the South Bay, the cruise scene was up and down Hawthorne Blvd)
