    ... the one John Travolta was driving. I looked like a Viper with a rounder body and a steering wheel on the right side.

    What was it? Very cool car!

    I think it is a famous British sports car. Something like a Travian or a TVR.

    I only know it cause you can buy it in PS2 Gran Turisom 3!

    Excellent car.

    Let me get this straight. You watched Swordfish, drank it all in, and when it was done, what was rolling around in your mind?
    You were looking at [rant]the car[/rant]?!?!?!?! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The TVR Tuscan... sigh.
    0-62 in 3.9 seconds anyone? Handling, anyone?
    Price to compete with the M3, anyone? (In the UK)

    on the same topic, could I ask what was the name of the open top car that Richard Gere was driving in Runaway Bride - now that was the best thing in the movie.[​IMG]

    Of course, all the galleries in the web won't come close to expressing the real reason everyone loves TVRs: the sound. Mmmm, lovely. And I'm not even usually a car nut.

    It is a 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible with a GT package (unless you were talking about the VW Thing?)[​IMG]
