    And being a movie star is sweet. Wooooo!

    Many cars have been in movies... and it doesn't change a thing. The Audi has been in a recent movie, and it's certainly not your favorite. The Mini Coopers were in The Italian job years ago, and that doesn't make them any better or worse than they are. The Mercedes M-Class goes way back to Jurasic Park, and it doesn't change the M either.

    Television and movies always have appearances of different makes and models. Heck, almost every car has appeared in a TV or movie production at some point in time. It's great advertising and exposure, but as I siad, it doesn't really change a thing about any car.

    The "Love Bog" was probably the most famous of them all. Making the VW Bug the best I guess.

    The Beetle was the best-selling car of all-time, until Toyota said enough of that.

    Well, that settles it, Doc... I'm just going to have to buy a Ford F150... best selling vehicle, period.

    It seems that everyone has had a chance to express their opinion in here. If someone gets June sales figures, send us an email and we can post them. But for now let's give Toyota and Hyundai a rest (so they both can refocus on the Chinese manufacturers coming to NA - link).
