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.

Are you Kidding, where the Bandits Trans Am, The Bullitt Mustang, the Hemi Challenger that Kowalski drove, those are hero cars, though thank you for not bringing anything from the fast and the stupid, I mean furious
I feel like this article is fishing for us to post about:
-two lane blacktop 55 chev
-Vanishing Point Challenger
-American Graffiti Coupe, 58 Impala, etc.
-The original Eleanor and the Nic-Cage era one people seem to love
-Bluesmobile as Brandan already posted...
-Dog van from Dumb & Dumber
-Space RV from Spaceballs
-Delorean from Back to the Future... even Toyota truck from same
-could do a whole article just from Mad Max franchise and Fast & Furious Franchise...
and so on
As Brandon said,like many articles here"they are fishing for comments". And the community comes through. Love this part of Hagerty, the passion ,knowledge, memories of the participants. Some of my favorites: Burt's Trans Am, the Milner coupe and Falfa 55, the Cobra, Daytona, and Camaro from Gumball. Bullit's Mustang and Charger and the Audi,etc. from Ronin for the awesome chase scenes. Remembering the driver's eye of the Ferrari hammering through Paris still gives me chills.
Great list, but to me misses the top 5 quintessential movie cars: Bullit Mustang, Back to the Future Delorean, The Graduate Alfa Romeo Spyder ‘Duetto’, James Bond Franchise Aston Martin DB5 & The Spy Who Loved Me Lotus Esprit S1 ‘Wet Nellie’
Not that it was a great car but without it there wouldn't be a trilogy, how was the DeLorean left off the list, the time machine that even today people stop and have a must see. An iconic memory that has spanned at least 3 generations. Marty McFly and Doc Brown will never forgive you.
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.
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.
