TV or movie influence in buying/wanting a car

Has anyone been or is being influenced in buying or wanting a car because you saw it being used in your favorite TV show or movie especially if it's driven by your favorite actor/actress? Me, my first influence was this Japanese show, "Ultraman Tiga" (US: shown in Cartoon Network), because they turn Mitsubishi GTO or FTO into a really cool patrol car. My second influence is the movie American Beauty. Anyone still remembers the line? (Annette Bening as Carolyn): "Uh, whose car is that out front?" (Kevin Spacey as Lester): "Mine. 1970 Pontiac Firebird. The car I've always wanted and now I have it. I rule!" I'm a Kevin fan and I think I want a Firebird myself. As of now, I just have Pontiac Firebird toy cars. :P So how about you? Does any TV show or movie influence your foreseen car of your dreams?

Not for me. A car is a mode of transportation. We usually have a nice used vehicle. There are 2 basic requirements for us. That the vehicle be SAFE. And that it get us from point A to point B. THat's it. Pretty basic stuff.
