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.

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.
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.
