What Was The Harold and Maude Car

Harold and Maude Jaguar E-Type Hearse

For many car enthusiasts, the most memorable (and cringe-inducing) element of the 1971 cult-classic movie Harold and Maude is the conversion of a Jaguar E-Type roadster into a hearse. Harold and Maude is the offbeat story of a death-obsessed young man, Harold (Bud Cort), who falls in love with a free-spirited elderly woman, Maude (Ruth Gordon). Harold and Maude was an early work by acclaimed director Hal Ashby, who would go on to direct such films as The Last Detail, Coming Home, Shampoo, and Being There.

Simon Templar and Volvo P1800, What did The Saint Drive?

Roger Moore starred as Simon Templar in the popular show The Saint, which ran from 1962-1969 on British TV.

Here’s a question for you: What was Jaguar’s biggest-ever marketing blunder? Many might argue it was the X-Type, a compact sedan that was little more than a Ford Mondeo (called Contour in the U.S.) gilded with a Jaguar grille, curvy sheet metal, and some extra wood and leather inside. By virtually every measure, the X-Type was a flop as a Jaguar, though the wagon version was not without its charms.

1970 Pontiac Firebird

Is the 1970 Pontiac Firebird one of the best-looking cars of all time?

Consensus is overrated. No one walks into a nice restaurant planning to poll the establishment’s other patrons in order to determine what to eat. Likewise, no one can tell you what you think is beautiful.

1986 Cutlass Supreme, Worst Gas Guzzlers

The Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme is 7th on our list of 1986 gas guzzlers.

By 1986, most parts of the country were enjoying a reprieve from rising gas prices. For the first time in a number of years, petrol was again retailing for less than $1.00 per gallon, with $.99 becoming a popular price point for regular unleaded.

How important is your facial expression when meeting someone for the first time?
