Must have a different engine to the "gutless wonder" 903cc one that is fitted to my 1976 model Fiat 127 !!
Wouldn't dare try anything like that with it................

This was when the Italians were doing a lot of movies, often crime pix, that involved some amazing--simply amazing!!--stunt driving. Perhaps the best known would be the original version of "The Italian Job," which starred Michael Caine and quite a few others.

Just saw a commercial for the new Toyota Corolla hybrid featuring an old Rick Nelson song. Anyone know what line was used for the "Steele & Western" train scenes?

I'm guessing the FORT Steele & Western, in British Columbia, Canada?

It looks like it was the Fillmore and Western. (The diesel rolling by in the beginning is the giveaway).
Although, as to why they lettered one of the cars "Steele and Western" is a mystery.

This Ford Explorer Commercial was filmed on the Grand Canyon Railway in 2002.

A new Jeep Compass commercial "Where you go" has a brief shot of a couple walking along a high railroad trestle which appears to be still in service.
