    Let's have a discussion about your favorite vehicles in movies and tv. They don't have to be in any order. You may also leave some extra info about the vehicle, like why you love it and how it may have affected you.


    Here's 29 vehicles that I like in no particular order.
    1. 1969 Dodge Charger R/T 440 - Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry

    I've always loved this car since I was a child. It's my favorite onscreen Dodge Charger.

    2. 1958 Plymouth Belvedere (as Fury) - Christine

    Because of Christine, the 1958 Plymouth is probably my #1 favorite classic car from the 50's. Christine isn't really a true Fury, as the actual Plymouth Fury was beige with gold trim.

    3. 1979 Ford Country Squire (as Wagon Queen Family Truckster) - National Lampoon's Vacation

    I love Ford LTDs and any car on the Panther Platform, and the Country Squire is a wagon variant of the LTD.

    4. Peterbilt 379 and Western Star 5700 (alt modes of Optimus Prime) - Transformers 1 - 3 and Age of Extinction

    I like both trucks equally.

    5. 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T - Vanishing Point

    This car made me a huge fan of the Dodge Challenger.

    6. 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (KITT and KARR) - Knight Rider


    7. 1959 Cadillac Ambulance - Ghostbusters


    8. 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor - Gone in 60 Seconds

    While I like both Eleanors, I prefer this one to the original one. I feel like it has more personality than the 1973 Mustang.

    9. 2007 Saleen S281 Extreme (alt mode of Barricade) - Transformers (2007)


    10. 1971 Dodge Tradesman (as Lobos Z1) - Zootopia

    This was my favorite vehicle in the film. I think Zootopia had some pretty nice designs for its automobiles.

    11. 1977, 2010, and 1967 Chevrolet Camaro (alt modes of Bumblebee) - Transformers (2007), Revenge of the Fallen, and Age of Extinction



    While I like all of Bumblebee's alternate modes, I think these three are the ones I like the most.

    12. 1993 Jeep Wrangler - Jurassic Park

    This is why I love Jeep Wranglers.

    13. 1996 Fleetwood Southwind Storm - The Lost World: Jurassic Park

    This is the most badass RV I've ever seen. I loved it since I was a kid, and I still love it now. It's possibly my #1 favorite vehicle in all of the Jurassic Park films. I'd love to go camping in this RV.

    14. Modified 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III - The Car


    15. 1966 Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan - Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry

    Because of this car, the 1966 model is one of my favorite Impalas. I hate that they kept calling it a 1968 model. The drawbridge scene with this car was awesome.

    16. 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am - Smokey and the Bandit

    Tell me, who doesn't love this car? This is a classic example of cool muscle cars.

    17. 1987 Chevrolet Suburban - Dante's Peak

    This was another of my childhood films and I still enjoy it today, and this SUV remains one of my favorite onscreen vehicles. If I ever wanted to buy a 1980's Suburban, I'd get a replica of this.

    18. 1973 Ford Falcon XB - Mad Max

    This is one my top favorite movie vehicles of all time. Let's see Vin Diesel's Charger take on this turbocharged Aussie muscle. I hate how George Miller keeps abusing this car since the Road Warrior.

    19. Tatra 815-7 (War Rig) - Mad Max: Fury Road

    I freaking love this truck. This was one of my favorite things about Fury Road. It even has one of the most epic horns I've ever heard. Interestingly, it doesn't even look like the kind of truck it is.

    20. 1982 DeLorean DMC-12 - Back to the Future

    Let's face it, this is why we love DeLoreans.

    21. 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 - Almost anything with Sam Raimi


    22. 1986 Winnebago Cheiftain (Eagle 5) - Spaceballs

    I never knew a RV spaceship would be so cool.

    23. 2014 Freightliner Argosy (alt mode of Galvatron) - Transformers: Age of Extinction

    I really like this truck. It just looks sweet to me.

    24. 1983 Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno - Initial D

    I haven't seen anything related to Initial D, but that doesn't stop me from liking this car. The AE86 has become my favorite Toyota thanks to this car. I'd take an AE86 over the Prius any day.

    25. 1993 Ford Explorer - Jurassic Park

    A friend of mine actually had a Ford Explorer of this generation. If I ever got it, I'd turn it into a replica of this.

    26. 1997 Mercedes M-Class - The Lost World: Jurassic Park


    27. 2013 Lamborghini Aventador (alt mode of Lockdown) - Transformers: Age of Extinction

    I thought Lockdown was one of the best bad guys in these films. He had an intimidating theme, he had some pretty cool quotes, and he could even turn his face into a gun. He's also why the Aventador is my favorite Lamborghini. His alt mode was one of my favorite cars in the film. This is one plus I give Michael Bay, at least he made Lockdown awesome.

    28. 1966 GM New Look - Speed


    29. 1984 Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor - The Wraith

    I became a fan of this car after I watched this movie. I think it has the most awesome intro for any movie/tv car ever.

    Spongebob is technically a TV show, so it counts.

    I'd take a Yugo over a Prius, that doesn't make the Yugo one of my favorite cars though

    Was this it?

    If so, this truck is from the movie Duel. One of Steven Spielberg's earlier films. The car it chased was a Plymouth Valiant.

    Yup, I think so, I thought the top of the hood was more rounded like what you'd expect on a car from the 30's though, regardless its a pretty cool truck and I always liked trucks like that with rounded hoods, they just look so old fashion.

    Most of mine have already been mentioned but here are a couple more.

    1995 Dodge Ram 1500 - Walker Texas Ranger

    1970's Kenworth W900 - Smokey and the Bandit

    They used a few different trucks in the movie, but really any old Kenworth with a flat top sleeper looks good.
