A loud thud of wood is heard as Rhodes frantically slams the door shut behind him, Rhodes is suffering from a major panic attack as he attempts to secure himself from the evil outside.
Captain Rhodes is holding a key for the door in his right hand, the Captain quickly locks the door with the key as he fumbles with both hands at the lock mechanism. Captain Rhodes twists the key as he pulls on the handle with his left hand to ensure the door is firmly locked.
Rhodes steps away from the door as he looks to his right momentarily. Rhodes is breathing nervously as he looks to his left with a face of fear and serious concern. Rhodes stands motionless for a few seconds as he tries to regain his composure and a solution to his survival or gruesome death. Rhodes looks along and down at the corridor as he gathers his thoughts, Rhodes looks up and along the corridor as he breathes rapidly.
Rhodes applies pressure to his left leg with his outstretched left hand as he moves his hand up and down slightly from the mental stresses he is feeling. Suddenly a thought enters the captains mind as his eyes concentrate on the distance. Rhodes hunches forward slightly as he raises his right hand before suddenly running off at high speed up and along the corridor. A light tapping of feet is heard.
Dr Matthew Logan's specimen Bub has been allowed time to explore it's surroundings. Bub has managed to leave Frankenstein's 4 lamps laboratory and has made his way into a storage area that is full of cardboard boxes. Bub looks to his right as he slowly slumbers forward one foot at a time. His movements are lethargic as he produces heavy taps of his feet. A loud jingling of metal is also heard from the broken piece of chain that came off the wall earlier on. A simple synthesizer melody is playing infused with fast and repetitive keys. Bub looks forward after taking three steps forward as he explores his surroundings further. More chinking of chain is heard as Bub turns his head slightly right before turning back around.
Bub takes another step on his right foot as he turns completely around in an anti clockwise motion. Bub tilts his head left as he closes his eyes momentarily. Bub reopens his eyes and has become very interested in something just a few feet away.
To Bubs excitement he can see Dr Logan laying dead in the freezer compartment, A cold and icy white ice licks the floor almost like a smoke machine, Bub groans with delight at finally finding his master, Bub does not understand why his master has left him too his own devices but is feeling an undead feeling of comfort and sustainability after discovering him playing in the freezer. Bub lets out a double ended groan to try and get Frankenstein's attention. Bubs eyebrows raise up and his mouth opens wide from seeing Dr Logan again, Bub steps from side to side as he slowly edges forward. Bub looks down at his broken chain as two light taps of his feet are heard. A jingling of metal is heard as Bub groans to signal Dr Logan that something is wrong. Bub points his left hand down at the broken chain before lifting it up in his left hand to show his master. Bubs mouth is wide open as he stares in at Frankenstein. Bub groans loudly some more as he passes the piece of chain to his right hand and holds it up for Dr Logan to see. (More jangling of steel is heard) The links dangling over Bubs right hand wobble slightly - Bub contorts his mouth as he waits for his master to come over to him and fix the problem. Sadly Bub thinks Frankenstein is still alive and is playing another one of his mind games with him. Bub groans again as he lowers his hands down, Bub is confused and does not know why Dr Logan is ignoring him, A few seconds pass and Bubs face changes to an evil stare of betrayal and unhappiness. Bub continues to look in at Frankenstein but there is no activity or movement from the scientist. Bub closes his mouth as he becomes sad and emotional in an undead sense, Bub moves his head slightly back as his dead brain attempts to solve the puzzle. Bub side steps on his right foot as his mouth reopens, More jingling of chain is heard -
Bubs mouth moves around in a circular motion to his right as he whimpers a sad groan, Bubs eyes are bright and sadness has filled them, Bub side steps to his left as another jingling of steel is heard - Bub breaths out as his mouth contorts,
Bub breathes in as his face turns to one of anger and demonic evil,
Bubs mouth contorts and twists right as he continues to watch his master unable to accept the impossible. Bub is dead and is portraying emotions which Frankenstein has missed out on because of Rhodes. Bub desperately wants his master to come back to life as Dr Logan is all he has in his undead life apart from joining a horde of zombies. Bub moves his head around as tries to understand the death principle.
Bub suddenly widens his mouth to one side as his mind enters a new stage of development. A low level groan emits from Bubs mouth.
Suddenly Bub's mind explodes with a pain he has never felt before as his mouth opens wide, Bub produces a loud high pitched groan of displeasure and sadness for his dead master.
Bub's undead senses can take no more of the knowing that Frankenstein is dead inside the refrigerator, Bub suddenly changes and his mental stability becomes fragmented from the pain and shock he has just realized. Bub turns to his right as he lets out an almighty groan of suffering and unhappiness "Braaaainns" is heard with a whimpering childish cry,
Bubs long chain wraps around his dead torso as he swings his arms out behind him unable to look inside the freezer any more or accept the facts. Bub grimaces as saliva drips from his mouth. A loud sound of chinking metal is heard as Bub swings his chain to the ground with defeat and dissolution.
A plastic sheet instantly floats out from a stack of boxes as the chain hits the cardboard with force. Bub groans with turmoil once again as he looks inside the refrigerator.
Bub turns back to his left as he mourns for his master, He violently swings his chain in that direction causing another loud crashing of steel.
More jingling is heard as Bub turns his head back to the freezer, It is hard for Bub to accept his master has passed away and Bub will never be the same again.
Bub groans loudly as he closes his eyes and swings the chain again to his right side.
The chain sways back behind Bub as he wails some more with an open mouth and closed eyes.
Bub is destroyed inside from his infection and now his masters passing.
Bub side steps before swinging the chain back to his left once again,
The chain violently bends and snags as it hits the floor hard - Loud sound of metal is heard -
Bub side steps back to his right as a large amount of saliva drips from his bottom lip,
Bub looks to his right slightly as he sways from side to side.
Bub stares in at Frankenstein as he groans a cry of desperation and loneliness, His sound is almost similar to "Braaaaaaains". Interestingly fresh meat now lays in the freezer from the butchered remains of Pvt Johnson and Pvt Miller, In normal circumstances a zombie would begin to eat the flesh but Bub is different. He has no interest in eating his master even though Rhodes dead soldiers will be frozen by now.
A loud tap of metal is heard as Bub's chain makes contact with the refrigerator door, Bub slowly turns his head away from Frankenstein before suddenly striking out with his right hand in anger.
Bub quickly turns back to his left as he looks across the floor. Bub lifts his head up as he begins to become more composed and less emotional. Loud chinking of metal is heard - Bub side steps on his right foot, Bub turns his head as he looks down slightly to his left, Bub sways slightly as he continues to look down at the floor while moving his head slightly right. Bub turns his head back into the freezer as he looks at the dead corpse of Frankenstein.
Bub sways slightly as he turns his head back to face forward, Bub takes in a deep and loud breath of air.
Bub turns to his left as he looks down at the floor below. Bub grimaces and is showing a face of evil.
Bub breaths in again as he looks away and down at the floor, Suddenly Bub turns his head back left after receiving an undead thought. Bub slowly turns his head further as he looks down at the floor.
Bub slowly turns his body anti clockwise as he becomes silent and more stable.
Bub has set his sights on a small collection of handguns that were taken from Sarah and Dr Fisher earlier on. The weapons lay undisturbed having been violently snatched away by Pvt Torrez and Captain Rhodes.
More and more zombies are now visible as they filter out from the corral cave system and the elevator, Now Rhodes and his men have double the fun as the two separate hordes will now join forces in there hunt for fresh meat. A large and frumpish zombie stumble forward at a medium pace as it searches for the soldiers. Multiple zombies are filtering out of a side door that Rhodes ran through earlier. Another zombie wearing a light brown suit and tie walks slowly across the floor to it's right completely avoiding the single file process.
A female zombie to the left wearing a white wedding dress slowly walks forward, Suddenly the wedding crasher turns her head around fleetingly as she holds her dress with her right hand. A zombie wearing a yellow shirt and purple trousers stands motionless as it looks up at the ceiling before slowly turning clockwise. A zombie wearing a pink shirt and grey trousers walks across the hanger as it explores another area. A zombie behind him also follows. The female zombie that came down the elevator now carries her wicker basket over her right shoulder as she slowly steps forward. A loud growling is heard as the zombies slowly infiltrate every corner of the bunker.
A zombie with it's right hand in it's pocket wearing a soiled white shirt and blue jeans limps awkwardly forward as it shakes it's left hand out.
A zombie wearing a gold suit suddenly turns it's head right as it looks down at the floor.
A soldier zombie that came out of the door well to the left slowly walks forward with it's arms outstretched. Zombies moan loudly as they progress further in, Zombies are clumsy and lethargic.
The zombie in the middle wearing a dark purple top and tie moans loudly as it opens it's putrid stench filled mouth. It is docile and cares only for human flesh.
A zombie wearing a dirty and soiled light orange top slowly limps forward as it stares ahead into the void. A much larger zombie wearing a yellow striped shirt limps forward on it's right leg as it stares ahead.
This female ghoul stares along the corridor as it craves for human meat and blood, It swings it's right hand in an up and down motion as it holds it's throat with it's left hand. Rhodes soldiers though stupid at times sometimes get things right when applying a tight and firm tension to the leather dog collars. This zombie has also injured it's left elbow and arm and a large piece of flesh is missing from the ghouls wrist. The zombie limps forward as it momentarily rests on it's right leg producing a motion of ill health. A zombie wearing a white shirt pushes through from behind as it follows it's senses of smell.
Another zombie wearing a dirtied Broadway tee shirt slowly limps forward one leg at a time with a methodical rhythm of motion.

White Zombie (1932) Full Movie
White Zombie is a 1932 American pre-code horror film independently produced by Edward Halperin and directed by Victor Halperin. The screenplay by Garnett Weston, based on The Magic Island by William Seabrook, is about a young woman's transformation into a zombie at the hands of an evil voodoo master. Bela Lugosi stars as the zombie master "Murder" Legendre, with Madge Bellamy appearing as his victim. Other cast members include Joseph Cawthorn, Robert W. Frazer, John Harron, Brandon Hurst and George Burr MacAnnan. Large portions of White Zombie were shot on the Universal Studios lot, borrowing many props and scenery from other horror films of the era. The film opened in New York to negative reception, with reviewers criticizing the film's over-the-top story and weak acting. While the film made a substantial financial profit as an independent feature, it proved less popular than other horror films of the time. White Zombie is considered the first feature length zombie film. A sequel, Revolt of the Zombies, opened in 1936. Modern reception to White Zombie has been more positive. Some critics have praised the film's atmosphere and compared it to the 1940s horror films of Val Lewton, while others still have unfavorable opinions on the quality of the acting.
On arrival in Haiti, Madeleine Short reunites with her fiancé Neil Parker, with imminent plans to be married. On the way to their lodging, the couple's coach passes Murder Legendre, an evil voodoo master, who observes them with interest. Neil and Madeleine arrive at the home of the wealthy plantation owner, Charles Beaumont. Charles' love of Madeleine prompts him to meet Murder secretly in Murder's sugar cane mill, operated entirely by zombies. Charles wants to convince Madeleine to marry him and solicits Murder's supernatural assistance. Murder states that the only way to help Charles is to transform Madeleine into a zombie with a potion. Beaumont agrees, takes the potion, and surreptitiously gives it to Madeleine. Shortly after Madeleine and Neil's wedding ceremony, the potion takes effect on Madeleine, who soon dies and is buried. Murder and Charles enter Madeleine's tomb at night and bring her back to life as a zombie. In a drunken state, a depressed Neil sees ghostly apparitions of Madeleine and goes to her tomb. On finding it empty, Neil seeks out the assistance of the local missionary, Dr. Bruner, who recounts how Murder turned many of his rivals into zombies, who now act as Murder's closest guardians. The two men journey to Murder's cliffside castle to rescue Madeleine.
At the castle, Charles has begun to regret Madeleine's transformation and begs Murder to return her to life, but Murder refuses. Charles discovers he has been tainted by Murder's voodoo and is also transforming into a zombie. As Neil enters the fortress, Murder senses his presence and silently orders Madeleine to kill Neil. She approaches Neil with a knife, but Bruner grabs her hand from behind a curtain, making her drop the knife and walk away. Neil follows Madeleine to an escarpment, where Murder commands his zombie guardians to kill Neil. Bruner approaches Murder and knocks him out, breaking Murder's mental control over his zombies. Undirected, the zombies topple off the cliff. Murder awakens and eludes Neil and Bruner, but Charles pushes Murder off the cliff. Charles loses his balance and also falls to his death. Murder's death releases Madeleine from her zombie trance, and she awakens to embrace Neil.

Suddenly from no where Pvt Torrez appears from below a stack of wooden pallets. Pvt Torrez is alone as he navigates through the twisted pile of undead ghouls, No one said being a soldier in apocalyptic times would be easy but this soldier is completely outnumbered and is out on a limb. Pvt Torrez quickly jumps up onto the large stack of pallets as he lands on both hands and feet at the same time. A large number of zombies are filtering past the pallets and are oblivious to Pvt Torrez presence.
The vast amount of zombies that have now entered the bunker is proving rather difficult for the three remaining soldiers under the command of Captain Rhodes to deal with. Pvt Torrez quickly places his right hand over the edge of the top pallet before standing up while releasing his left hand. A zombie that is wearing a pink shirt and black jacket suddenly turns it's head towards Torrez from his erratic movements, The zombie quickly raises both hands in the air as it attempts to grab hold of the terrified soldier. Torrez focuses on the next pallet in front which is two pallets lower than the first as he makes a jump to it.
Pvt Torrez launches his body forward as he holds his arms out while stepping onto the lower pallet with his right foot first. As Torrez travels he produces a loud wooden thud sound from his feet that disturbs two zombies just behind him, One zombie has bright red eyes while the other has an open mouth as they watch Torrez escape. Torrez rapidly runs across the pallets before jumping down to the ground - A loud sound of compressed rocks and mud is heard as Torrez lands on his feet. Pallets slide and wobble slightly from Torrez feet.
Pvt Torrez lands behind a stack of pallets as he attempts to hide himself from the undead, Torrez rests his right hand on one of the pallets as he rapidly swings his head around to see what he can see. Torrez rests his left hand on a lower pallet as he stares out in complete terror at the approaching zombies. Torrez is focused on the horde in front of him as he suddenly peers out from his hiding hole to get a better look. Pvt Torrez dog tags swing violently from side to side.
Pvt Torrez is completely oblivious to several zombies that are just behind him, As the soldier looks out he is instantly grabbed from behind by several hungry ghouls, Multiple rotten hands suddenly grab hold of Torrez shoulders and back sending the soldier into overdrive. Torrez grimaces and screams with shock as he tries to find a solution to his dilemma,
Pvt Torrez quickly stands as he turns in an anti clockwise motion to face his attackers, To Pvt Torrez horror multiple zombies are closing in to seal his doom. A zombie wearing a ragged yellow overcoat and filthy orange shirt has a tight grip of Torrez left arm as the soldier struggles for release. Torrez looks to his right as he flails his arms up in the air.
Suddenly Torrez manages to free himself as he turns around rapidly while looking ahead, The attacking zombie has raises hands and has lifted up it's left leg. More zombies appear as Torrez makes his escape.
Pvt Torrez suddenly leaps like a frog with all his strength as he lands on a wooden platform just a few feet away. This platform is used to access the high stacks of wooden pallets. Pvt Torrez lands on both of his hands as he attempts to escape the hungry ghouls. A loud thud is heard as Torrez body weight hits the deck.
As Pvt Torrez lands on his stomach he quickly turns over to his right so that he is now laying on his back. Loud and evil growls are heard from the zombies that have quickly swarmed around the soldier, Pvt Torrez looks up in total fear as he tries to comprehend his dire predicament.
Pvt Torrez begins to scream loudly as he turns the other way in his struggle to escape the hungry carcasses. Rotten hands rapidly come into view as they begin to control Pvt Torrez. Torrez screams loudly some more as he turns more to his left but his situation is now very serious. Pvt Torrez begins to struggle as he gyrates and shakes furiously from the sudden surge of zombie hands. A loud shriek of pain and terror is heard from Torrez as the zombies pin him down to the wooden table.
Pvt Torrez turns back to his right as he lays flat to the table, Torrez screams loudly as he tries to get the hands off him. Pvt Torrez opens his mouth wide as zombies lock in on his flesh and body, The decomposed hands caress and scratch at the soldier as they begin to feed on his tantalizing frame. Torrez shakes his head from side to side as he grimaces from the sheer shock of being consumed alive.
An evil ghoul from behind Torrez instantly sticks it's rotten fingers into the soft eyeballs of the soldier, A loud crunching sound is heard similar to biting into a piece of toast - The ravaged zombie plunges it's spiny fingers deep inside the eye sockets of Torrez which causes the soldier to shriek and scream out with almighty pain and suffering. Torrez holds onto the zombie's wrist from behind him with his right hand momentarily.
Multiple zombies surround the poor soldier as they maintain a firm grip with there hands. Zombie hands gyrate and slide up and down Torrez chest and stomach as they go in for the kill.
Three zombies have there hands down by Torrez neck as they begin the gruesome process of decapitation. As the soldiers neck is pulled upwards while being severed by the zombies powerful fingers he screams a most awful of sounds. Torrez is doomed to die and no one can save him from the zombies wrath.
Pvt Torrez legs raise up and down rapidly from the pain as he is pulled up by his eye sockets, The soldiers head turns slightly right as he screams for his life, Torrez lifeblood suddenly slips away from him as his right hand falls away and rests by the side of his head.
Blood starts to appear at the base of the soldiers neck as his head is continuously pulled at, A zombie to the left grimaces with pure delight as it digs deep into the soldiers throat.
Torrez shakes violently almost like a fly that is caught in a spiders web. The web of hands continue to devour the soldiers body as they flutter and slide on his chest.
A ripping sound is heard followed by an even higher scream of pain and terror as the soldiers head becomes severed from his neck.
The zombies continue to apply pressure as the head of Torrez slowly becomes separated from the rest of his body.
More and more blood appears as the zombies continue to work at Torrez neck, Torrez continues to scream but this time the sound is almost unbearable. Flesh and muscle have now been exposed including a huge hole in the soldiers neck. The loud screaming of Torrez echoes around the bunker, The highest pitch of screaming ever heard is now coming out of Torrez mouth as large stringy muscles and veins are stretched and fingered by the hungry horde. Torrez hands twitch from his nerve endings in an uncontrollable motion.
Snapping sounds are now heard as Torrez head is ripped away from his body. Only two fleshy cords of human skin are left as the zombies continues there gruesome attack.
Zombies groan with intense evil and pleasure as they pull the severed head away from the body.
Torrez has now stopped screaming and is considered dead meat at this point.
Suddenly several more rotten zombie hands creep up to the now exposed flesh and blood of the dead soldier as there demonic and poisoned minds go into overdrive, More zombies bend down and over at the delight of finding a fresh victim,
More wet snapping sounds are heard as zombies growl with delight at there catch, Torrez mouth opens and closes independently from the nerves in his mouth as his head is taken away by the hungry ghouls. The ghoul that has placed it's spiny fingers into Torrez eyes lifts and carries the head away for instant consumption leaving the rest of the body for the others.
The large and exposed neck is now a feeding area for the zombies as they greedily dig there hands inside the body of the soldier, There hands are fast and cold having no feelings of any kind, Flesh begins to be pulled out of Torrez neck and he will be severed at the legs and arms also in no time at all.
Multiple hands pull at the remains of Torrez as there fingers become covered in a thick red blood and stringy veins and vessels,
A wet scrunching sound is heard as the hands rip at the warm and appetizing flesh.
Zombies growl loudly as they feast on the remains of Pvt Torrez, Zombies push and flail there arms around as they attempt to get some of the fresh flesh of the dead soldier.
A huge wave of zombies now surround the butchered Pvt Torrez as they moan and groan with intense feelings of evil, Zombies hands are very strong and can cut through flesh like butter.
Pvt Rickles is also feeling the squeeze as he runs for his life towards the entrance to the corral cave system, Since the cowardly Captain Rhodes abandoned his men they have decided to split up and have gone in different directions. A small group of undead corpses have made there way inside the storage area from behind Rickles that houses a large collection of vintage automobiles. More zombies have appeared from Rickles right as they advance forward in the direction of his body movements and strong scent. Rickles fleetingly turns his head towards the zombies to his right - Rickles screams out loudly with intense fear "Oh Shit" as the zombies home in on his ass. Rickles carries a machine gun as he runs at full speed across the darkened cave and mud and rock coated ground. An orange colored VW Beetle sits rusted and in a dilapidated condition a few yards from Rickles. Here is a short run down on the history of the VW Beetle.
Adolf Hitler is delighted to see the VW Beetle design in honor of the Fuehrer in the 1930's.
The Beetle was commissioned in the 1930s by Adolf Hitler as the "people's car" (or volks wagen in German). Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the curvy car was affordable, practical and reliable. Three decades later, the "Bug" (as it was affectionately known) became a symbol of the 1960s and the "small is beautiful" ethos. Germany stopped producing Beetles in the late 1970s, but in 1998 Volkswagen rolled out the New Beetle, which was meant to be a visual flashback to the original Type 1 design but was essentially a VW Golf. Another variation was introduced in 2012, but sales have been steadily declining—down to around 15,000 last year from some 43,000 in 2013—so now the Bug will be squashed. To pay tribute to the car that helped make Volkswagen the world's largest automaker, VW will release two last models, the Final Edition SE and the Final Edition SEL.
Ferdinand Porsche and his most famous design the Volkswagen Beetle.
In an effort to produce an affordable car for German workers, Adolf Hitler had commissioned engineer Ferdinand Porsche to design a simple, economical vehicle for the people. The Type 1 (as it was known) had a rear, air-cooled engine and borrowed design elements from an earlier Porsche car (the Type 12 he built for Zündapp) and several models from the Czechoslovakia automaker Tatra. In May, Hitler laid the cornerstone of the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, Germany. Civilian production was almost immediately stopped because of World War II, but some cars were built for military officers. Hitler was given the first convertible.

Following the end of the war, the factory was put under British control. By the end of 1946, more than 10,000 cars were manufactured. A decade later, one million had been sold.

Under the supervision of William Bernbach of the New York advertising agency Doyle Dane Bernbach (DDB), copywriters Julian Koenig and Helmut Krone created the now legendary "Think small" ad for Volkswagen with a tiny Beetle in a plane of white space. "Maybe we got so big because we thought small," the ad touted. Forty years later, Ad Age named it the best advertising campaign of the 20th century.
Helmut Krone is the legendary DDB art director who worked on AVIS and Volkswagen, creating a completely new style.

The Type 1 was officially given the name "Beetle" (from "der Käfer," German for beetle, which was used in brochures). That year, Disney released the first of six movies featuring Herbie the Love Bug, an anthropomorphic 1963 Beetle with a racing-style number 53 on the hood. In 2018, one of the cars used in the 1977 movie Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo and 1982's Herbie Goes Bananas set a record for a Beetle at auction, selling at Barrett-Jackson for $128,700.

This is not your typical KITT that's been home built with mail-order parts off the internet. It was owned and professionally built by Mark Scrivani, of Marks Custom Kits, with use of the original production designs. Purchased in 1991, his shop did a complete top of the line conversion. We purchased this car 14 years ago have been displaying it in our museum since. It has a complete KITT interior from the dash to the steering wheel and both upper and lower consoles. The interior is fully wired and all the prop lights function, the digital gauges not only light up but are functional as well, including the speedometer. Has the correct KITT nose with red light-bar and taillight blackout with a reproduction license plate. Concealed inside the car is a stereo with detachable speakers that play numerous KITT verses loudly outside the car for when on display. In addition there is a power supply unit that plugs into any 110v wall outlet to power all the cars features for display use. The car itself has low miles, just under 60k, and had a professional show quality paint job. The paint still glistens but does have a few chips that have been touched up from its years of display. The interior is original and correct, the drivers seat does have some loose stitching. The car does run and drive but has not been driven on the street in 14 years, it will need to be tuned up and serviced for street use. The car comes with a certificate of authenticity as an exhibition vehicle, it has also been autographed by George Barris as part of the Barris Star Car Collection.

Sam Witwicky Buys His First Car (Bumblebee) - Transformers (2007) Movie Clip HD
This motorcycle was specially built and screen used in the movie "Ghost Rider" with Nicholas Cage and Peter Fonda. The motorcycle was to replicate a 1960's era pan-head Harley. More specifically it was to resemble the famous Captain American chopper driven by Peter Fonda in 1969 movie "Easy Ride". Peter Fonda even made a humors reference in the movie saying "Nice bike!" when he had first seen it. This motorcycle is what the industry refers to as the "hero" bike. It was the one that was built for the glamour shots and not to be damaged. Other motorcycles and prop bikes were built and used for stunt work. This bike was built with all modern parts, see the kick starter? It's fake and was installed for visual effects only, the bike is actually electric start. The Volo Auto Museum acquired this bike directly from the studio's transportation department.

Transformers 2007 Autobots Arrival To Earth Scene (Full HD)
Recognized from the first Transformers movie, this is the "Beater Bee" version used at the beginning of the movie when character Sam Witwicky was first introduced to Bumblebee. Approximately 3 versions of this Bumblebee were produced. For the movie they were painted yellow and then "Hollywood Make Up" was applied to the cars to make them look distressed. Each car had to have the distressed make-up applied identically so it would appear as the same car on screen.
MIAMI VICE (Don Johnson) ~ Memories of the 80s
Miami Vice - In The Air Tonight Scene [HD]
This Daytona Replica is documented as 1 of only 2 Daytona's built for and screen used on the TV series Miami Vice. This is the only one on public display, the other car is owned privately by a collector. Any other Daytona on display claiming to be from the TV Series is a replica.. This car is known as Car #1. It was the first Daytona replica ever built, built by Tom McBurnie. It was primarily used for driving and stunt scenes. The car was fitted with a special stunt brake, skid plates and camera rigging. After the Daytona's use was discontinued from the series, they were traded off in exchange for a Testarossa Stunt car. The 1981 Daytona was sold off to a private collector. This car was sent to Canada and used in the movie Speed Zone with John Candy. After its use in the movie the car disappeared. Many people have made claim to having the missing car. This one was found deteriorating outside in the Texas sun. Volo Auto Museum purchased the car and did a cosmetic restoration preserving what was left from its use in Miami Vice. We had also spent many years researching the car to prove its pedigree. In 2015 Volo Auto Museum was able to verify its VIN number against a document from Universal Studios that provided the VIN numbers to the original two cars. The Volo Miami Vice Daytona VIN number matched to the Universal Document proving its authenticity and solving the mystery of the lost car.

Mad Max Road Warrior
After avenging the death of his wife and young son at the hands of a vicious gang leader, Max drives the post-apocalyptic highways of the Australian outback, fending off attacks from nomadic tribes that prey on outsiders. Falling into an encampment led by the relatively peaceful Pappagallo, Max at first schemes to steal their oil, but soon becomes the group's reluctant defender against the hulking Humungus and his ruthless marauders.
For the original Mad Max movie trilogy only 1 "Mad Max" car was ever used for filming. It was originally a supped up Police Interceptor in the original Mad Max, but in Road Warrior the car became far more post-apocalyptic with large fuel tanks replacing the truck and rear window, a gutted interior with an added roll cage and filled with survival items from weapons to a cooking pot.

The Dukes of Hazzard (1979-1985) 🌎 Then and Now 2019
Dukes of Hazzard
This is the 6th General Lee and the last Georgia Lee as well as the only surviving Georgia General Lee. Many enthusiasts, as well as the original builders, have called this the Holy Grail of all General Lees, it is a time capsule. The first season of Dukes of Hazzard was filmed in Georgia. To cut production costs for season 2, filming was relocated to California. A total of 6 General Lees were built for Warner Bros. during the Georgia production.
So what makes this car so special? It survived! Because of the disruption in filming locations this car avoided the fate that more than 230 General Lees faced, total destruction. When filming wrapped in GA, there were a total of 6 General Lees on set, 2 that were totally destroyed, 3 in usable condition and this car which had not yet been used. Of the 6 cars, 2 of them were scrapped, 3 of them were shipped to CA where they continued to be used and eventually destroyed. Then there was the final car, this car, which was sold to the TV shows transportation coordinator, Don Schisler, for $10 and "consideration" to cover the money still owed to him by WB.
If it were not for the chain of events above, this car would not exist today, or at least in original condition. What sets this car apart from the rest is its authenticity. It is not restored and is completely original as the day it was built back in 1978. Of the few real TV series cars that exist today, most have been restored, like Lee #1 which underwent a total restoration replacing nearly every piece of the car including all the sheet metal. Of the 17 General Lees that survived from the CA production, a few have been preserved, but none of them are in pristine condition as this car. When production continued in CA, they found ways to build the General Lees cheaper. In GA all the cars had their graphics painted on by hand, where as, CA started using decals. The GA cars mostly had original tan interiors, the CA cars were spray painted tan. The wheels on the GA cars were a more expensive 14" wheel, CA used a similar, but cheaper, 15" wheel. In other words, the GA cars were built better!
Some of the other features that make this car unique is its roll bar which was salvaged out of Lee #1. It is the only General Lee to wear its original hand painted graphics. There is not a better documented General Lee in existence. Documentation includes a complete paper trail of ownership from the owner prior to Warner Bros. through today. Bills of sales in Warner Bros. name, power of attorney and other documents in Warner Bros. name. Statement of authenticity from the the previous owner of Lee #1 and restorer of Lee # 1 verifying the roll bar being from Lee # 1, letters of authenticity from 4 of the original builders of this car. One more very unique piece of documentation is the original ad from 1980 when Don Schisler sold the car. This ad would be the first ad ever of a General Lee for sale!
Current status of the 6 Georgia Lees
Lee # 1: Used for Seney Hall jump, turned into 71 Race car for Repo-man. Originally scrapped in GA, recovered in 2001, had a total restoration including a re-bodie
Lee # 2: Stunt car, used for Elm St Jump, repaired, and used again for High Octane Jump. Originally scrapped in GA, no longer exists. Roof was cut off and used as template for Ronnie Edwards to continue painting graphics.
Lee # 3: Close up car. Sent to CA, wrecked, no longer exists
Lee # 4: 1968 Charger converted to 69. Sent to CA, wrecked, no longer exists
Lee # 5: 1968 Charger converted to 69. Sent to CA, wrecked, no longer exists
Lee # 6: Never sent to CA, never wrecked, never restored

Christine (1983) - The Fiery Fury Scene (6/10) | Movieclips
Christine (1983) - Love Eats Everything Scene (8/10) | Movieclips
For the movie a total of 14 cars are said to have been used to portray the self-restoring killer car. Several stunt versions were made with different special effects. Rubber bumpers and trim were applied to some cars to bend back to shape with ease. The scene where the cars dents pop out and the smashed trunk restores itself; in reality it was rigged with hydraulics that crushed the car from within. The scene was then played in reverse giving the illusion the car was repairing itself.
At the request of Stephen King, this Christine was used in the movie 11/22/63 based on King's novel, produced by J.J. Abrams and starring James Franco. At that time King autographed the car, his signature began to bleed and King commented “She remembers me”.
Documentation includes contracts from the movie production company and photos of King signing the car.

Bonnie and Clyde
This is the car that toured during the 1930's and thru the 1950's as the actual Bonnie and Clyde Death Car. People would pay an extra fee at carnivals, fairs and other events to gaze upon its gruesome past. However, its past was less than gruesome. Where there is profit, there is fraud. This car is 1 of 5 fraudulent cars that that were built and toured as the real Death Car. Because of these fake cars, the owner who was displaying the real car offered a $10,000 guarantee that his was the real one. Eventually this car's owner was prosecuted and the car confiscated. It was later bought by Warner Bros and used as template for the Death Car in their 1967 movie, Bonnie and Clyde with Warren Beatty and Fay Dunaway. In 1968 the car was purchased by the Tragedy in US History Museum where it was on display until 1993 when the museum closed. Volo Auto Museum acquired the car from a private seller who purchased the car from the Tragedy Museum. Its authentication includes sales documents and a letter from Warner Bros archive dept.

Bonnie and Clyde (1967) - A Getaway Driver Scene (4/9) | Movieclips
1971 VOLKSWAGEN SUPER BEETLE CUSTOM HARDTOP
In 1971 Volkswagen introduced a premium model known as the Super Beetle. The car had a new front suspension and more trunk space—under the hood. The next year, on February 17, 1972, Beetle No. 15,007,034 rolled off the assembly line, surpassing the record held by the Ford Model T for four decades as the best-selling car in the world.
Meet the New Beetle. After 60 years, VW gave the car its first major update with lines that recalled the Type 1 on what was basically a Volkswagen Golf platform. The car came with a 115-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and in a nod to its flower-power roots, the dashboard had a small vase. The following year, Mike Myers drove a groovy version in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me known as "The Shag Mobile."
