What is your favorite car? Chances are, your favorite car was seen in a movie. Maybe you saw your favorite car in a car chase, or cruising for ladies down the sunset strip. Maybe your favorite car was driven by an actor you relate to. Maybe you are a James Bond fan who one day dreams of owning an Aston Martin, or a Michael J. Fox fan who wishes he could use his DeLorean to go back in time to change history. Either way, Steel Seal would like to count down the top five coolest movie cars of all time. Will yours make the list?
1950 Mercury Monterey: Cobra
Stallone wasn’t the only thing to make Cobra one of the best action movies of all time. The 1950 Mercury Monterey was to blame as well. Did you know that Stallone actually owned the car that was featured in the movie?
1964 Aston Martin DB5: James Bond
This is perhaps one of the most recognizable cars in the world. The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 appeared in six of the 23 James Bond films, making it a part of movie history. If you have the money, or wish to play a secret agent, you can buy one of Bond’s original Aston Martins today.
1981 DeLorean DMC12: Back to the Future Trilogy
Roads? Where we’re going, we won’t need roads! Dr. Emmett Brown is responsible for the DMC12 becoming an instant icon, not just for cinema, but for time travel as well.
1959 Cadillac Miller Meteor: Ghostbusters
This car, also known as the “Ecto-1” was transportation for 4 parapsychologists (including Ernie Hudson’s character) who saved Manhattan from spiritual invasion in 1984. Four years later, the parapsychologists suited up, hit the road, and did the same exact thing. Don’t we just love sequels?
1968 Ford Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback: Bullitt
Just by touching it, actor Steve McQueen could make the 1968 Ford Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback the best-selling car in America. However, he did more than that in the American movie classic, Bullitt. The car was also the central piece to possibly the greatest car chase caught on film.
