So, How many of us think that Omar Sharif was actually driving that Rekord A? BillThis could probably be found in the above resource, but someone told me about this particular car chase between a Fiat 124 and Opel Rekord, and indeed it's worth a watch:
Wild Car Chase "Le Coup / Le Casse / The Burglars" 1971 J.P.Belmondo / O.Sharif - YouTube
There were 2 of these VW's at the Deutch Classice in Fleetwood PA 2 yrs ago. It is an interesting car.How funny I was looking through these postings of GT's and found a pic of two cars I have owned! Obviously the blue car to the upper left is the Opel GT. The oncoming blue car to the middle of the screen is a 1965? Volkswagen Type 34 Karmann Ghia. Completely different model than the Karmann Ghia sold in the U.S.
The one I bought was (as I was told) given to Miss Holland 1965 as a gift to her. She then sold it to a man in the military stationed in Germany. When his time finished in the service he shipped the car back to America where it stayed in California where I bought it from him in Paso Robles, CA in 1992. Although most mechanical parts were shared with all other VW's, body and weatherstripping parts were Extremely difficult to find and Expensive! Although it was fun owning a VW that most VW enthusiasts had never heard of or seen... I can't say I loved the car nearly as much as I love Opel GT's!
According to above mentioned IMCDB source its a 73 Toyota Corona.I just saw the movie "Intolerable Cruelty" with George Clooney. A very funny movie per my sense of humor. In the scene where Clooney says he is looking for Tenzing Norgay there is a silver car right behind him that looks Opel-like. It also has the black aluminum rear window louvers that were available for GT's and Manta's. The car looks sort of like a Manta. It could be another model or a later Manta that I don't know about. :
