Tossin’ It Out There: What’s YOUR Favorite Movie Vehicle?

With the release of “Premium Rush” and “Hit and Run” this past weekend focusing prominently on bikes and cars, respectively, Tank and I turned our (title pending) topic of discussion last night to movie vehicles. We had a blast talking about our favorite cars and bikes and boats from the movies.

I thought I’d bring it over to our Tossin’ It Out There topic this week as well. What’s YOUR favorite movie vehicle? Can be anything. Big fan of the bus from Speed? Knock yourself out. The Titanic? She’s all you (a little too disaster prone for my tastes). Got a particular fondness for a movie car? This is your chance to talk it out!

Let’s hear it! What’s YOUR favorite movie vehicle?

  1. How could it NOT be the DeLorean in BTTF? Not only is it super cool looking with its wing doors, that thing could literally take you places! Imagine being able to know what we know now back when we were in Fermi just by taking a little “ride”? Would have made Mrs Jonitis a bit less of a worry! Oh and the money you could make inventing the internet and facebook? SWEET!

    • Ok. a) It’s kind of dorky looking b) I would get in so much trouble. I KNOW I would be the time traveler who winds up ripping a tear in the space time continuum. LOL. Then everyone would be all mad at me… I just couldnt be trusted with such a thing.
      :D

  2. Without a doubt unquestionably head and shoulders above everything else is the Star wars speeder bike for me. Whats not to love!

  3. Lotus Espirit S1 from the James Bond “The Spy Who Loved Me”

    Great because Bond casually asks his Soviet passenger “Can you swim?” right before driving into the water and the car becomes a submersible vehicle before dowing a helicopter and driving up onto the beach – sweet. ;-)

    There are so many other good ones for this category which could even be amended later for best movie with vehicles. Fun post.

  4. Man, where do I begin….the DeLorean Time Machine, Ecto-1, the original Bond Aston Martin, the Wayne’s World AMC, The Bandit’s Trans Am, I could go on forever, baby!

    Hard to choose just one, but my favorite movie car scene has to be the Bluesmobile destroying the mall.

    “The new Oldsmobiles are in early this year…”

  5. LOL. I love blogging.

    DONT LOOK LIKE NO EXPRESSWAY TO ME!!

    I could hear the music before I even pressed play. I love this scene too. Of course, I did press play… how am I not gonna watch that? :D

    Elwood: Baby Clothes.

    Jake: This place has got everything….

  6. Don’t know why when you said vehicles I thought of U-571…but I’m not sure if they actually go anywhere with it…does it actually count? I’m not even sure if thats my fave.

    Back to “normal” stuff, like Fast and Furious Dodge Charger. I seriously LOVE that car! Definitely one of my faves!

    • LOL.

      I knew that would get brought up. You know what destroys that car for me? When Billy Madison goes back to High School

      They’re unrelated, of course, but it wrecked my vision of the Trans Am

  7. One of my favorite movies that focuses on vehicles is Road Warrior. I especially love that tanker truck fortress in the final chase scene.

    • That’s a bad ass choice right there Arlee. That entire final act of that movie is just a sick chase scene with a ton of baaaaaad vehicles running each other down. :D

      Made me want to bust that movie out! LOL. Nice call.

  8. Red Dwarf. A small planet sized mining ship. The ship’s captain punishes Dave Rimmer(chicken soup machine mechanic) for having a cat on board. He’s put in stasis for a year, only to wake 3 million years later. He finds he’s the last human anywhere and his cat(who was pregnant) has evolve into Felis Sapiens, part cat, part human. Great show and the ship was forever full of surprises. I just had to be the first to mention a SPACE vehicle! Now the flood gates are open. I have to say, the past two days, this blog has been better than cable and cheaper too!

  9. Hands down the Astin Martin DB5 from Goldfinger. The first time I saw it, I thought it was the coolest car ever made and I still do. I even have a minature Corgi replica of it.

  10. Hi, Fogs and company:

    Just a few off the top of my head/

    Bond’s Astin Martin DB-5 from ‘Goldfinger’

    Kowalski’s (Barry Newman’s) 1970 Dodge Challenger from ‘Vanishing Point’.

    Crazy Larry’s (Peter Fonda’s) 1968 Dodge Charger from ‘Dirty Mary Crazy Larry’.

    Elwood Blue’s (Dan Aykroyd’s) Blues Mobile from ‘The Blues Brothers’. With its “Cop Suspension. Cop Transmission. Without a Catalytic Converer. So it can burn regular gas….”.

    Oddball’s (Donald Sutherland’s) Sherman tank in ‘Kelly’s Heroes’.

    • The Blues mobile! Awesome. And I totally agree on the Bond choice, of course!!

      Confession time though. I feel mildly guilty about never having seen “Vanishing Point” I mean, it’s not the hugest movie ever, but it does have a cult status, and I havent ever seen it. So… :(
