Two Lane Blacktop. 55

Sometimes They Still Come Back-Stephen King, Deathproof, Expendables, Ferris Buelers Day Off, Mad Max, Road Warriors, Grease, Dazed and Confused, and i am sure I could list more that had some great cars.
71 valiant Charger in Metal Skin movie
Peter Sellers' three wheeler Morgan in "The Party".
Sorry but Elanore was from Gone In 60 Seconds. McQueen was in Bullit, I don't think the car had a name.
Chitty Chitty BANG BANG MAN THAT CAR COULD DO IT ALL
The Vanishing Point Challenger or the Charger in Dirty Mary Crazy Larry.
My mother used to take me to all those driving movies in the seventies. I think I saw them all before I had my license.
I loved the Gto Judge that Warren Oates drove in Two Lane Blacktop!
Vanishing point, Bullet, American graffiti, Deathproof...
People have mentioned the original Death Race 2000 cars, I think most of them, especially the Frankenstein car, were customized versions of Dick Deans Shalo-Vette fun buggy. Incidentally, you should Google some of the cars built for the "new" Mad Max movie to come out next year, one of which is like a Hearse/monster truck Ol Skool ride!!
Repo Man is being re-released in Hi-Def, which is worth it for the sound track alone.
Harold & Maude. The Jaguar hearse is classic.
the Plymouth fury in thunderbolt and lightfoot
PHANTOM CORSAIR, HANDS DOWN. I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT WAS EVER IN A MOVIE, BUT IT'S THE BADDEST CAR OF ALL TIME SO IT MUST BE THE BADDEST MOVIE CAR OF ALL TIME TOO.
Cannonball's Stude p/u from hotrod. Maybe it's not the baddest but I love it.
Check out "Redline 7000". Lots of cool rides in that flick. My vote is the Shelby Daytona that was supposed to be the daily driver of one of the stars, Halibrand knockoffs and all. Crazy.
Then there's "Hotrod Gang". Uncredited cameo appearance by none other than Mr. Barris's Ala Kart.
Shaggy dog's car.
the 56 Nomad in Outrage
The 68 fastback mustang in bullit.
One of the most underrated movies of ALL time (with the greatest cuss line of all time...Harry Dean Stanton to the Rodriguez Brothers). Wish youtube had a clip of it. I'd add ONE WORD in the last sentence and it would be even better.
The 72 charger in "wheels of terror"
Ask and ye shall receive:
The rambler sedan owned by the dad in Full House
the Corvette that Dennis Hopper drives in King of the Mountain.
The 71 charger In wheels of terror, or corkys 68 Cuda in corky.
The evil, black '55 Chevy from American Graffitti . . . hands down. George Lucas (the greatest story teller of our generation) used a Black '55 Chevy as the primary villain car in AG just a few scant years before the Star Wars saga introduced the most famous movie villain of all time . . . Darth Vader. When I watch Star Wars, I visualize Darth Vader as a walking, talking, evil, black '55 Chevy.
I like the 50 shoebox in the beginning of a indiana jones film
where he raced a hotrod
I dont know why but I like shoeboxes
