Top 10 Movie Cars From Our Memory

Everyone has a favourite movie and everyone has a favourite movie car. Younger fans may opt for Cars while older fans may opt for Knight Rider or something from https://www.pureperformancemotorsport.com/, however everyone loves a celebrity four wheeled vehicle. Here are the best movie cars of all time.

A car that flies?! That’s incredible. Or so thought children of the sixties and seventies. Now we have Need For Speed and Gone In 60 Seconds, and Chitty has been relegated to the shelf. Bring back Chitty. The world needs more flying cars.

Starsky & Hutch

That red and white Ford Torino (lovingly reprised in the 2004 remake) is an icon to a generation. Any sensible car fan wants one – and a chunky knit sweater to go with it.

Le Mans

Steve McQueen’s 1971 classic car movie with a Porsche 911S to die for. That beast is lowered so far, it’s practically underground. All car freaks love this movie with minimum dialogue, sweet motors and roaring engines. It’s genius of the highest order.

Knight Rider

A talking Pontiac Trans Am with built in flame throwers? That’s almost as good as a flying car. KITT also reappeared as a Shelby GT500KR but the original Trans Am can’t be bettered. Knight Rider will forever be reinvented because you can’t beat a talking car and a Hasselhoff inspired crime fighter.

The A-Team

That black GMC Vandura with the red stripe made vans sexy again. You can even hire a replica for your wedding or prom, though you might not be able to get a Mr T lookalike to drive it for you. Or maybe you can?

Herbie

You can’t leave the (questionably lovable?) Volkswagen Beetle off a list of classic movie cars – even if he does annoy the hell out of you, it’s guaranteed the movie industry will keep reinventing him every few years for each new generation of movie-goers. Beetle fans can point out the evolution of Herbie from the sixties through to the noughties. Don’t encourage them.

Back to the Future

A DeLorean DMC-12 that runs on plutonium and can travel through time is something that any sensible person wants – and any car with doors that open upwards is super-cool. End of story. But then you get flaming skid-marks and the story just gets better and better.

The Fast and the Furious

How do you pick one car from a movie that’s jammed full of sweet motors? Surely it’s got to be the Toyota Supra Mk IV driven by Brian O’Conner? Or maybe Dominic Toretto’s Mazda RX-7? Too much choice.

Mad Max

A black Ford Falcon XB Interceptor with an exposed super-charger poking up through the bonnet? Oh yes. It’s not good to shatter illusions (or is it?) but that super-charger was non-functional. Who cares? It looks totally awesome and form over function wins out in this instance.

Scooby Doo

Who wouldn’t want a lime green Mystery Machine for fun-times with Fred and/or Daphne (your choice) in the spacious back of this Ford Econoline Van? There’s plenty of room for ghosts, hungry dogs and bearded hippies in this classic movie car.

Catching up with Friends

I have been living here in Germany for more than 3 years now but still I could still feel homesick. I still miss my family, the Filipino food, my weekend habits and of course, my friends. That’s why it’s always been a joy for me to find a fellow Filipino wherever I go here, more so those living near my place. I know being with them and establishing a relationship will somehow cure my longing for my friends back home. However nothing beats meeting and catching up with my friends back home who share the same experiences. Agree?

I met with two of my classmates from the Goethe Institute (where I learned the language in the Phils) and was just overjoyed. Thanks to Facebook we are constantly in touch and with the same timezone, sharing our experiences, letting out our problems and worries, or even talking just about anything is easy.

We took advantage of meeting up while one of them, Mishel who lives in Berlin, stayed in Cherry’s house in Rheinplatz which is a two-hour drive from Stuttgart. We spent our day in Wilhelma Zoological and Botanical Garden where we know the kids will also enjoy.

It was their first time to visit the 74-acre zoo. Fun and laughter filled our day while we roam around the place and while hubby constantly capturing our moments together. The kids? Hmm.. we thought we could have just brought them to a near playground. Haha! The zoo is so big they were just contented with running around. Although there were areas where they displayed their curiosity.

While waiting for them, we took the chance of taking photos with the ever beautiful tulips in the garden. It was such a colorful view and sure is the perfect sight of spring season.

The whole gang…

I don’t know with them but I haven’t had such laughter for a long while. Nothing beats being with people who make you laugh out loud.

I’m really thankful that even for a few hours we have enjoyed each other’s company and made each other’s worries disappear.

A mini reunion with our other classmates who are also now living here is in the pipeline. Hopefully it will push through. 🙂
