I remember Tomboy. Movie was terrible, but I was young and enjoyed the car and the girl. I didn't care for the mods done to the Corvair, but it was nice to point out to my Mustang driving friends that the hot girl was in a Corvair.

was viewing "forrest gump" with my parential units one night...the scene where forrest "rescues" his off and on girl friend from the horny college kid make out king....as she is screaming at him for "rescuing" her from the front seats of the EM convertible; the sound of the EM starting up and driving away can be faintly heard....Dad looks over at me and we both smile, both recognizing the sound......

Never heard of the Tomboy movie. Some of my favorite car movies as a kid were Duel (Spielberg's first feature film), Death Race 2000, Vanishing Point, Gumball Rally and of course Bullitt with Steve McQueen. I see vairs in old movies and tv shows all the time now that they are finally playing them again on good ole antenna tv.

I just got through watching Animal House, and yep, out front left of frame white em vert.....it's parked there the whole movie long...

oh as a side note while I was pausing this scene, when they all get into the car and drive off there are two crew members on the roof in front of the window that are hastily moving trying to get out of the shot.....

Looked through a lot of the posts and haven't seen this one mentioned: "Earthquake" (1974) was on AMC last weekend. When Marjoe Gortner leaves his job at the supermarket to join the National Guard, he drives off in a red EM vert.

A 1962 Corvair coupe is shown driven by one of the characters in a 2017 family oriented film called 'Keplers Dream'

Nice disney-esque theme song at the end : [www.youtube.com]

Nothing like a Necro-post eh?

I've used them in three movies now.

"The Fruit" (Not Yet Released), my 66 Corsa Turbo. Made to look like a Presidential Motorcade vehicle.



"Moment of Anger" (2016), a friend's EM, not sure of the specs.










Secret Life of Jonathan Sky (2011), my 65 Monza 110 PG. (I was one of the producers, didn't write or direct the needlessly gory film.)

Michael Moore's movie Capitalism: A Love Story has a whole trainload of EMs rolling by the camera in an early scene.

I remember the movie "Duel" with Dennis Weaver. I think he was in a Dodge Dart. Let that be a lesson if your mechanic tells you you
need a radiator hose... Also all you truckers out there, don't mess with McCloud.

When I worked at Larry's Corvair Parts in California we built numerous cars for movies. One car used in Forrest Gump was on in shop numerous times and one of the funniest things is when the owner got the car back from the studio it had a box of chocolates in the back seat and he threw it away.
