For all of the car fanatics out there, this is news for you! One particular man who happens to be famous for his work is at it again. While movie fanatics may not know who Eddie Paul is, car fanatics will. Paul is the man who takes care of the cars that grace the movie and TV screens. He has done cars like Q from James Bond and for movies such as Grease, Cobra, E.T., and even The Fast and Furious.
He has been given a new job – trying to revive a model from the luxury carmaker Dusenberg. Paul was known for jumping out of the General Lee on Dukes of Hazzard while working as the stuntman. If he can pull off this plan of resurrecting the luxury car, then it will be fantastic for the Duesenberg Automotive Company.
He will revamp the version of the Duesenberg convertible model from the 1930’s by using a GM truck chassis and featuring a 430 HP, 6.2 liter V8 LS3 Corvette engine with 424 foot-pounds of torque. It will also have an updated top that stows away in the truck when it’s not up. Paul explained it as a “six-man top” because it originally took six people to put the top up and down. They will redesign it and make it a push-button top.
It’s no doubt that cars are just as famous as the actors and actresses in movies. Here are the top five most famous movie cars of all time:
1964 Aston Martin DB5, from the movie Goldfinger
1976 Lotus Esprit Series I, The Spy Who Loved Me
1977 Pontiac Trans Am, Smokey and the Bandit
1932 Ford Coupe, American Graffiti
1981 DeLorean DMC-12, Back to the Future
