We often think of the unsung heroes of movies as being the best friend, the nerdy unassuming kid down the block, the sidekick and sometimes the adorably brave pet. But, since we are all about cars here, we forget that the hot ride the hero zooms around is, is just as much the star as anyone else. Here are our favorite celeb cars!
Movie: American Graffiti
Car: ’32 Ford Five-Window
Why: Well why not? George Lucas, drag racing, trouble-making men, summer nights.
Movie: The Blues Brothers
Car: ’74 Monaco Police Package
Why: Never before has Chicago’s lower Wacker Drive seen a police car travel at such speeds that John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd bring upon the Windy City.
Movie: Gone in 60 Seconds
Car: ’67 Mustang
Why: Nicholas Cage might not be the most bad-ass actor out there, but he does drive a pretty bad-ass car.
Car: Aston Martin DB5
Why: James frickin Bond. Need we explain further?
Movie: The Italian Job (1969 version)
Car: Lamborghini Miura
Why: Awesome cars doing amazing stunts while trying to rob a Turkish bank of millions of dollars of gold. It’s the ultimate car chase kinda movie.
