Notes

While escaping from Willard Whyte's (under Blofeld's control) lab in Diamonds are Forever, Bond walks into a moon landing simulation. There, he steals a Moon Buggy and drives through a wall and into the Las Vegas desert. There, he out maneuvered cars and motorbikes. 007 used the Moonbuggy to escape from Willard Whyte's Techtronics factory. Bond activated the Cruise Control so the buggy kept a constant speed so that he could jump out and hide, and let his pursuers to carry-on and follow it.

The original Moon Buggy has been found and restored, and is now owned by Planet Hollywood.
