    I just read a post about the movie GumBall Rally which (if i recall) doesn't have many H.A.M.B. friendly cars in it, except a T bucket and maybe the cobra, and we've had movie cars before but let's keep this one hamb friendly.

    So many choices but off the top of my head is the '51 Mercury from Hart Like a Wheel.

    Other than the hood scoop, I liked the Mercury in Sylvester Stalone's Cobra

    Biff's black 46-48 Ford Convertible in Back To The Future

    And, not my favorite movie car, but I love the scene in the beginning of "Stroker Ace" when the dad is shifting that Ford pickup like he means it !

    Viva Las Vegas...and why? Well it wasn't for Elvis' amazing acting skills. LOL. You are looking at the first Cobra to go drag racing. A few months after this was shot, MGM returned the car to Shelby and he gave it to some guys in the shop to drag race. Yep you are looking at the original Dragon Snake!

    As mentioned in a previous post. The Milner coupe from American Graffiti was the only car for me. Since first seeing the movie at age 11. That has been my dream of a perfect hotrod. All of the flaws. All of the imperfections are perfect to me. 019.jpeg Model%20Box.jpeg milner_engine.jpeg Milner%20coupe%20close%20up%20with%20sweater%20KIP.jpeg

    Saw a diecast replica of this car that was in the movie Vanishing Point yesterday.
    Two weird dudes driving it but I couldnt help but like this car better than the star car of the movie when I first saw it as a kid.

    I thought I was the only one goofy or dorky enough to even notice that car that much back then.
    but others must have liked it too:D I do wander if it was suppose to be considered as any old used clunker car when the movie was made or they put a little thought into using a 55 chevy wagon to stir more interest???
    Its appearance was only brief, and out of gas then, but.....:rolleyes:
