Hi, Bryan Here….
Have you ever wanted to own a specific car from a film or television series? I have compiled a list of my favorite vehicles from films and television series that I want to own someday. Now, I am excluding spaceships, because that is a whole different list. This particular list of vehicles all stay on the ground. It was fun coming up with this list, and I imagine some of you out there actually own these cars or are working on restoring one. Or just maybe it will give you an idea to make one of these in real life. Enjoy.
The Mirth Mobile (Wayne’s World) 1976 AMC Pacer
I would be singing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody as loud as I could and would put a licorice candy dispenser in it. You know you would as well.
Ferrari (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) 1964 Ferrari GT California
If I ever owned a Ferrari, it would be the one above from ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’. I definitely would not kick this off a building, however I would blast the ‘Star Wars’ theme while flooring it in Downtown.
The Fury (Christine) 1958 Plymouth Belvedere
What a scary car. I definitely want this one to spook people. Stephen King’s masterpiece about a car that kills people. AWESOME.
Ecto-1 (Ghostbusters) 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor limo-style endloader/ambulance
This one might be one of my favorite vehicles. How awesome would this be to drive around town. Holy shit. I just get all giggly thinking about it. I would turn on those sirens and put proton packs in there. And blast Ray Parker Jr. till the sun came up or at least till I caught a ghost.
The Challenger (Vanishing Point) 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T
One badass muscle car. And such a cool film. If you haven’t seen it, get it. You’ll love this. You might have seen this car in the Tarantino grindhouse film ‘Death Proof’.
Sweet Tooth (Twisted Metal) Ice Cream Truck
Who doesn’t want Sweet Tooth’s Ice Cream Truck. You would be king of the road with this one. I would yell at everybody and get places extra fast.
Mr. Plow (The Simpsons) Large truck with giant shovel attached to the front
Because it would be awesome to have a car with a shovel on it. And Mr. Plow is a great name. Think about it.
Eleanor (Gone in 60 Seconds) 1973 Ford Mustang
From the original ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’. Not the Nick ‘Pussy’ Cage one. This is one vehicle that car collector’s always want. It is the ultimate badass car. Amazing.
KITT (Knight Rider) 1982 Pontiac Trans Am
I would want this only if it talked to me in Bruce Campbell’s voice. Somebody make this happen, please.
The Mystery Machine (Scooby Doo) 1963 Ford Econoline Van
Every time I would go out to a fancy restaurant or the opera, I would pull up in this. You could fit about 800 people in here. Let’s go solve some mysteries.
The Time Machine (Back To The Future 1/2/3) 1983 De Lorean DMC-12
This might be my favorite car on this list. I would deck it out with the flux capacitor and time circuit controls. Blast Huey Lewis and put on a life preserver vest and i would be ready to ROCK.
Batmobile (TV Series Batman) 1955 Lincoln Futura
A classic. Every time I would drive this I would put on the gray suit and blue cape and get to fighting crime.
Optimus Prime (Transformers) Peterbilt 379 EXHD
I hate this movie by Michael Bay, but the car is awesome. The colors are great and if it actually turned into a robot with a pension for kicking ass, even better.
The Classic (Every Sam Raimi film) 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88
The “Classic”. Sam Raimi puts this car in every movie with maybe the exception of the Quick and the Dead. I love Army of Darkness and Evil Dead. Bruce Campbell drives it. Therefor I shall drive it.
Claire’s Car (Six Feet Under) Vintage Hearse
From one of the best shows on television ever comes Claire’s Green Hearse in Six Feet Under. It would be fun to drive this around and get weird looks or put a body.
The Shaggin’ Wagon (Dumb and Dumber) Enconoline Van
I just think it would be a comfortable car. Its a fracking dog. The alarm alone, cost me $200.
The Van (The A-Team) GMC Vandura Van
Just a nostalgic piece of television history. A very cool van indeed.
Futuristic Car (A Clockwork Orange) Adams Probe 16
Only 3 were ever made. A beautiful futuristic car from A Clockwork Orange. I would never play chicken in this but hopefully bast some Ludwig Van. Very cool. Long live Kubrick.
The Big Adventure (Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure) Custom Bike
Now I know this isn’t a car but seriously…..Pee-Wee’s bike is amazing. Remember what all the things it could do. It literally could fly over fences and had a spring loaded chair. Badass.
The Land Speeder (Star Wars) Custom Land Speeder
This is not a spaceship, because it doesn’t go higher than a foot or so off the ground. More of a hover board. I need some new power converters before i could drive it though.
The Mach 5 (Speed Racer) Mach 5
The car that can do pretty much anything. Very cool.
The Blacktop (Two Lane Blacktop (1955 Chevy)
The Two Lane Blacktop car is so cool. One of my favorites on this list. They need to remake this movie.
The Interceptor (Mad Max) 1973 XB GT Ford Falcon Coupe
Say what you will about the guy. He’s got great story structure. This is an amazing post-apocalyptic car to have. You could have so much fun in this.
The Winnebego (Spaceballs) 1986 Winnebego Chieftan
Yes, even though this is a spaceship, this still gets put on this list, because, it is an actual car that just happens to fly. Blast Bon Jovi and cruise the galaxy in this one of kind winnebago. Amazing.
The Tumbler (Batman Begins/The Dark Knight) Custom Military
There is not one thing this vehicle can’t do. From flying to shooting through walls, to destroying itself to morphing into a motorcycle. This can do it all. It’s like the air force 1 of make believe vehicles. I want one so badly.
The Blues (The Blues Brothers) 1974 Dodge Monaco cop car
One of the best car chases in cinema history, if not the best ever. This car will definitely get you from point A to point B. No question asked. Put on the blues, get a fried chicken and coke with dry white toast, some cigarettes, and some sunglasses.
