What's Your Favorite Movie Car?

The list is long and filled with classics, but some stand out more than others. While some got plenty of screen time, others were responsible for the action itself! Take the movie 'Ronin' for example (a personal favorite of mine), that famous car chase between the BMW M5 and Peugeot 406 was captured by several 911s'. Read more about it here.

So...what is your favorite 'movie car'?

Fast Five GT40. It is sentimental to me as I built the car. I guess it’s the most famous member of my family!

As built, it was Lexus spectra blue with a Lamborghini orange stripe and mustache, painted by my buddy Ron Randell in Connecticut.



They repainted it in a washed out duller blue so the crew wouldn’t be reflected in the paint.



It was later repainted in guardsman blue and restored for auction:

This was probably the first that popped into my mind.

I thought this was cool as a kid.

Favorite movie car? That's a hard question to answer but...

Morgan Freeman's black 911 from "Kiss The Girls". You only get glimpses of it but it looks glorious!





And again the same car in the sequel "Along Came a Spider"

Through April 23, the Bullitt Mustang will displayed in an illuminated glass case located between the National Art Gallery and the National Air & Space Museum. The car’s D.C. debut is part of the Historic Vehicle Association’s Cars at the Capital event, in which a different car is put on display about every week. Other cars in the rotation this year include the Ferrari 250GT California Spyder replica from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and the 15 millionth Ford — a 1927 Model T.
