James Bond's Toyota 2000GT Roadster

The Toyota 2000GT was a mold-breaker for the Japanese auto industry. A joint venture between Yamaha and Toyota, it changed how the world saw Japanese cars. This particular model was driven by James Bond on-screen in You Only Live Twice, and is one of only two roadster versions ever built — rumor has it that Sean Connery, who stands 6' 2", was too tall for the hardtop version and stuck out of the targa model. It's currently on display at LA's Petersen Automotive Museum as part of the Roots of Monozukuri exhibit.
