Along with other American car manufacturers, General Motors embraced the use of big tailfins, which peaked in size in the very late 1950s when the DeVille was introduced.

A 1913 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.

Classic cars coloring.filminspector.com

A total of 7874 Silver Ghosts were built. They were viewed as having exceptional quality. This was the result of a conscious decision by the company to prove the car's reliability by putting it through lengthy trials that it passed successfully.

Classic cars coloring.filminspector.com
A 1967 Toyota 2000GT.
 There were only 351 Toyota 2000GTs made in the late 1960s, and they are incredibly valuable in good condition. The Toyota 2000GT made Toyota's reputation, and, considering it is now the world's biggest car company, that's pretty important.

Classic cars coloring.filminspector.com

Made of aluminum, the 2000GT is a special car. If you have a mint Toyota 2000GT, you could get over a million dollars for it. Not bad for a car that was not taken very seriously at the time.

Classic cars coloring.filminspector.com
A Lotus Esprit.
Lotus Cars made the Lotus Esprit from 1976 to 2004. Despite the lengthy production run, only 10,675 were built. These were made in the United Kingdom, which led them to star in a certain film you may have seen.

Classic cars coloring.filminspector.com

If the car seems unusually familiar, that is probably because you are a James Bond fan and saw a Lotus Esprit featured in "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1977). The James Bond films love to showcase all things British, and the Lotus Esprit certainly fits the bill. The car shown in the film famously transformed into a submarine and then drove ashore on a beach. That particular car, called "Wet Nellie," was bought by Elon Musk in September 2013. There actually were several different Lotus Esprits used in the making of the film, and none of them could both drive and go underwater (and survive). Later Esprits were also featured in the James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only."

After Kirk and Spock, the third star of the series was the ship's doctor, Dr. McCoy.
