Favorite Iconic TV/Movie Car
Sun May 13, 2018 1:58 am
  • This could be a fun topic. The other day my mom showed me an episode of Jay Leno's Garage which highlighted the cool story of the iconic and famous 1968 Ford Mustang Bullitt from Steve McQueen's movie of the same name. The 11 minute car chase is considered to be the movie car chase scene that has become the standard that many a movie car chase scene has tried to emulate since.

    It was THE car for her generation she said. I was too young to know about it or care even though I now can certainly appreciate the car, the movie and the story behind how it went missing for 40 years. Google it if you get a chance, it's pretty cool.

    It got me thinking..."What is my favorite iconic TV or movie car growing up?"

    A few came to mind. Of course the 1977 Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit. The 1969 Dodge Charger "General Lee" from the Dukes of Hazzard and the Ford Gran Torino from Starsky and Hutch all come to mind growing up as a kid.

    But for me, there was one car that I obsessed about far more than any other.

    The Corvette from Corvette Summer.

    It was like a Hot Wheel come to life. And Luke Skywalker drove it?? I was transfixed.

    What about you?

  • I'm not even a Harley fan, but the way this was used in Terminator 2 and considering the pure amount of associated badassery from that film, this HAS to make the list.

  • I’m also in the 69 Dodge Charger camp, thanks to the General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard. This is my all-time favorite muscle car. If I ever win a huge lottery jackpot, a 69 Hemi Charger (or Daytona) will be one my first purchases.

    I was less than four-and-a-half years old when the show ended. Not sure it's expected that I'd have seen an adult audience-intended live-action TV show. :)

    The van from the movie adaptation was similar though, and easily recognizable.



    This, KITT, and the Delorean were some of my favorites, but Airwolf was badass when I was a kid.

    lol, fair enough.........but it's not like I chose some obscure 70's or 80's show, the A-Team and that van are about as iconic as TV shows go. Somewhere in the past 30 years you should have seen it.

  • I'm 28 and recognized that van as the A-Team's ride, though I'm far more familiar with parodies of the A-Team than the show itself.

    KITT, the Delorean and the green Mitsubishi Eclipse from The Fast and The Furious were my favorites growing up.

    I will say a lot of the cars listed in this thread, while nice, are hardly what I'd term 'iconic' TV or movie cars. Maybe for gearheads. At least the A-Team van passes muster on this term. Unless you're are car nut, most of these cars couldn't be picked out of a lineup by your average movie fan. As an example, the Ghostbusters ambulance is an iconic film car. While a Gran Torino is nice, it is not an iconic film car. I couldn't tell you what Eleanor from Gone in Sixty Seconds looks like, but I know the General Lee had the Confederate flag on it's roof.

    I remember being about 11 or 12 when I first saw my first Herbie movie, and not really being interested in the car, but strangely interested in a young Stephanie Powers.

  • You guys are forgetting the most memorable and iconic car of all time....

    Image

    Image

    Image

    Image


    This is from one of the greatest TV shows of all time (top 10 or 15, easily), called My Mother The Car. Starring Jerry Van Dyke (the funnier and more talented of the Van Dyke brothers), this show is about a car who becomes possessed by the main character's mom. If you aren't laughing already, just wait until you check out the first few episodes. Don't worry, the show really starts to take off by episode 12 or so if you're having a hard time getting hooked.

    I was less than four-and-a-half years old when the show ended. Not sure it's expected that I'd have seen an adult audience-intended live-action TV show. :)


    ...Gramps. ;)


    lol, fair enough.........but it's not like I chose some obscure 70's or 80's show, the A-Team and that van are about as iconic as TV shows go. Somewhere in the past 30 years you should have seen it.


    I will say a lot of the cars listed in this thread, while nice, are hardly what I'd term 'iconic' TV or movie cars. Maybe for gearheads. At least the A-Team van passes muster on this term. Unless you're are car nut, most of these cars couldn't be picked out of a lineup by your average movie fan. As an example, the Ghostbusters ambulance is an iconic film car. While a Gran Torino is nice, it is not an iconic film car. I couldn't tell you what Eleanor from Gone in Sixty Seconds looks like, but I know the General Lee had the Confederate flag on it's roof.



    Proves your clueless about movies and shows when it comes to iconic vehicles, although other then fast and furious not much out there the last 20 years that could be considered iconic anyway. Those Chargers and Mustangs were all able to be driven on the road as well accept for the Vin Diesel Charger I think, it's rear Tires I don't think were legal, those shows and movies were always talked about in circles in High School and after, and we were not gear heads or grease monkeys.

    All though some people were completely happy with.

    I didn't say the cars weren't iconic, I said they weren't iconic film cars. As an example, I would say a Volkswagen Beetle is a culturally iconic car, but not an iconic film or TV car. But paint it white with red and blue stripes and the #53, then it's a film icon.

    This is from one of the greatest TV shows of all time (top 10 or 15, easily), called My Mother The Car. Starring Jerry Van Dyke (the funnier and more talented of the Van Dyke brothers), this show is about a car who becomes possessed by the main character's mom. If you aren't laughing already, just wait until you check out the first few episodes. Don't worry, the show really starts to take off by episode 12 or so if you're having a hard time getting hooked.


    In a small world kind of thing, I used to work with the son on that show.

    There's been a new Aston Martin used in each of the movies, so are you talking about the Aston Martin in general? Or just this car?

    I do think James Bond when I hear the name Aston Martin, but IMO there hasn't really been one iconic Bond car.

  • My soul says, Bullit mustang. But that was before my time. Ive seen the movie and it was ok. I grew up on the general lee, A Team van and of course Magnum Pi, which was my favorite show. I will never be able to afford a red farrari or a porshe like james dean. Then came the remake of Gone gone in 60 seconds. The fast and furious movies are ,y favs with Tokyo drift as my most fav. ...a Mustang was prominant in that movie too. But when i met Elanore...pure love. Ive recently purchased a brand new 2017 Mustang GT top of the line with The brembos with corisponding 3:71 final ratio recaro leather and navi, 6 speed manual of course in magnetic grey. My vision of an updated elanore. I named her margot. If i can figure out how to upload pics i will. Btw after 3 days of ownership i lowered her and put on a rousche cat back with x pipe that i ordered a month before i baught my car.
