As I sat watching TV last night, I noticed an ad for the the new movie "The Bank Job" and in the commercial I saw what I thought was a Black Triumph 2000 or some other Triumph sedan. So I just looked up the movie online and found this trailer. I guess the movie is set in 1970's London, so it is a visual feast of LBCs (and BCs in general). I might have to see it for that reason alone.

The bank job (https://www.imdb.com/video/user/me707688951/) (warning: you will be forced to watch a Chase commercial first)

The screen for the trailer is unfortunately a bit small. Did I make the right call on it being a Triumph 2000? (watch closely...it's brief, right at about 2:03)

Several LBC's, looked like an MGBGT, a Mini and an XK Jag. Several others that were too quick for my eye.
Looked very interesting. It may have to be my first movie in a theater in 2 years. Thanks.

Here's what I saw:

Jag cop car
Bentley saloon
Mini
Vauxhall? - MVU 1550
Austin Taxi
Green Morris Traveller
A red coupe - MG or Triumph?
Great corner shot with too many to name
White TR3 or XK120 - not sure, just right front corner
Silver E-type
Red TR3
A couple of land rovers....

Of course Jason Statham is cool and would probably kick James Bond's butt! LoL

Oh yeah, something about a bank heist and a pretty female lead character...

I need a life!! :smile:

I caught the red TR3 (watching the trailer on the computer). Went back and checked again just to make sure I could ID it. Car geeks... :smile:

I thought that you were referring to how most of us plan to pay off our restoration projects....

"The Bank Job" got a nice review on the televised show "Ebert &amp; Roeper", calling it a tight, lean action film, without once mentioning what's <span style="font-style: italic">really</span> important, the vast collection of LBCs!
