Just finished watching a movie called "The Final Countdown". Sci-Fi/Military sorta thing. An aircraft carrier gets sent back in time to Dec. 6, 1941. Almost at the end of the movie when they're on the dock after returning to their own time, 3 sedans pull up to meet them. 1st is a '73 Fury, next is a Matador (not sure year), & a '70s FORD Galaxie behind that.

Fun that the movies producers equate a pacer with men in black "alien" tech.

Also, noticed there is an eagle in the parking lot of cdowells" burger joimt in the movie "coming to america".  Also noticed an eagle crossing an intersection in the beginming nyc downtown shots of the movie Romancing the Stone.
