7 of our favorite movie cars

We love to trace the myriad ways that cars (and trucks!) permeate our culture and our lives. When we’re not documenting our own adventures or analyzing the collector market or swapping an engine in the garage, we’re digging through the never-ending treasure trove of automotive movies. Though we’ve unearthed some obscure titles in recent months, our own Brad Phillips and Colin Comer decided to spend some time debating the all-time greats movie cars in a recent livestream.

Detective Marion Cobretti's awesome '50 Merc'!

Back to the future? Really? How could that not be on the list but the Devil's Mercedes is?

1978 Dodge Sportsman Ambulance from The Cannonball Run. It was the real deal, built by and Hal Needham and raced in the real Cannonball Baker Memorial trophy Dash by Needham and Brock Yates.

one thing that no one mentioned. for all these cars that feature large in the story lines, what about all the vintage and antique cars that hollywierd has destroyed on screen? same as on TV. i see a movie or program that destroys a vintage vehicle, i never watch it again. why support the idiots.

Well-crafted article. Interesting choices, some a bit under the radar while clearly ignoring many of the obvious choices to get people to comment. I actually tend to dislike cars that are famous for being in movies... I used to love DeLorean until it became an icon for a stupid movie. I actually have a movie car now, a red Ferrari 308. Probably an icon for 3 different movie/TV shows (Cannonball Run, Vacation and Magnum) I actually had to put those negatives aside to buy the car, which I enjoy a great deal.

7 is a short list. They could have had 25.

The car from the movie “The Car.”

I totally concur with the DeLorean from Back to the Future and the T'bird from Thelma and Louise. And while Wayne's World wasn't a perfect movie, the Pacer was absolutely the perfect car for that movie.

You just can’t leave out the Lincoln Continental from Animal House... better known as the “Deathmobile”!

New Driver

Black Hemicuda from Phantasm?
