Last night, lolitasir, quem98 and I sat down to watch Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof. It was the third time I have seen it in two days - the first the night before with another visitor, and the second right before my two guests arrived last night.

Yes, the movie is that awesome.

Now, we all know that Quentin loves to reference other movies in his own. It's one of his calling cards - and sends the movie geeks off searching for all the clues to other past, usually little-known, movies.

I'm now obsessed from one such clue.



In Death Proof, one of the central bits in the movie is the bad guy (Kurt Russell)'s car, a modified 1971 Chevy Nova. On the car, there is a very interesting hood ornament - a mean-looking duck.

Here is a picture of said hood ornament.



Last night, it hit me. Where have I seen that hood ornament before? Where... oh where....

HOLY SHIT!!!! THAT'S THE RUBBER DUCK'S HOOD ORNAMENT!!! THAT'S FROM CONVOY!!!!!

And here is the best proof I could find online so far:



Or, how about this eBay auction? One for a hood ornament created out of the same mold used for the famous duck in Convoy?



It's the same duck!!! Quentin Tarantino just referenced Convoy!

Quentin just referenced my favorite movie of ALL FUCKING TIME!


Holy shit. My life is complete. I am now experiencing a movie euphoria greater than anything ever before.

You don't understand how many times I have watched this movie.

I have worn through 1 BETA copy, and 2 VHS. I know it by heart.

And yes, I own the CW McCall albums as well.
