So what is your favorite movie car?

I was thinking about this on my way to work... what is your favorite movie car of all time (any movie, any car, real or not)?

I had a hard time deciding, so here are my top 5:

-2009 Chevy Camaro - Transformers (duh!)
-2003 Mini Cooper S - The Italian Job (I bought my car after this movie)
-1971 Chevy Monte Carlo - Fast&Furious Tokyo Drift
-1967 Mustang Eleanor Fastback 500E - Gone in 60 Seconds
-Batmobile Tumbler - Batman Begins (big bad a$$ military crusher!)

So what's your favorite?

1. 2009 Bumblebee Camaro-- Transformers
2. 1970 Chevelle SS "Melba Toast"-- Dazed and Confused
3. 1977 Trans Am-- Smokey and the Bandit
4. 1969 Charger-- General Lee

(I also had a fondness for the black Chevy truck in Dazed and Confused )

acscamarochick06,

I half debated putting the 1972 Black Chevy truck in my list as well, I am a fan of Chevy trucks. I love the burn out they do in the movie when they chase Mitch and his buddies in that white car and the lawn job a few mintues later

Nice Taste!!

Without a doubt the Dodge Interceptor from "The Wraith" nothing like a car that brings itself and the driver beack to life.

The 5th Gen Bumblebee was awesome.

I'm not a fan of Mustangs, but Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds is one of my all-time favorite cars.

The General Lee Charger is another all-time favorite

I like the Charger from The Fast and The Furious.

I love the '69 Camaro convertible used in Las Vegas...TV show, not a movie, but still....



Cool cars that weren't really stars of the movie:

The Lexus used in Minority Report was pretty awesome (too bad they never made it for real...concept only)

That TVR that Travolta drives in Swordfish was sweet, as was the Aston used in Die Another Day.

I liked the 91 Camaro Convertible used in Hard Target (sorry, back in the high school/early college days, I was a big Van Damme movie fan)

The Vector that they wrecked in Rising Sun was awesome, although short lived in the movie.

Holy shit! IS that the 80s movie where he races people, purposely crashes and shit, then comes back? I remembered seeing it when I was younger and have always wanted to see it again but noone ever knew what I was talking about when I described it! YAY

Okay, it's a TV show, not a movie, but Dee-Dee McCall's Daytona from Hunter
