The DeLorean is definitely an A-List movie car, not a B-Lister.

Beat me to it. That’s the definitive B-List movie car, just because it pops up in so many.

White early ‘70s Dodge Dart of old ladies had flat fixed by Bill Murray in Groundhog Day (Perfect car for that group).

I don’t remember the model, but I love the scene in the Godfather where Robert Duvall takes Diane Keaton through the property, and she asks about a wrecked car with a smashed window. Without missing a beat, Duvall dryly says “An accident. But nobody was hurt.”

How about the Volkswagen Type-3 from "The Stoned Age"? Gotta love the paint job with the "gnarly eyeball"!:

Also, this one is not from the movies, but from tv, the 3-wheeled "Blue Car" that was Mr. Bean's nemesis:

One of those with the original, faded factory paint job was parked in a bar lot west of me the other day.

Funny how you can admire it..and still keep your eye on it until you’re well past it....LOL

Don't forget the stunt-double '67 Camaro destroyed in the final scene with the dozers.

Awesome ride. I fell in love with the old Challenger when I saw it in ‘71 as the official Indy 500 pace car.

There used to be a nice first generation Camaro sitting out behind a house I used to pass on occasion. The owner had a sign in the window that said "NOT FOR SALE".

I’ve said that the Chrysler 300 would look great with suicide rear doors.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1284028/

“Love the Beast” starring Australian Eric Bana (from “The Incredible Hulk”). It’s a documentary about Bana’s first car that he kept for many years—a 1974 Falcon XB GT Coupe. He did a frame-up resto on it after many years and then entered it in the Targa Tasmania, a rally...and wrecked it. The movie is largely about the obsession we’ve got with old cars and the lengths we’ll go to for them. I’ve seen bits of it out on Youtube, there are some interesting cameos in it from Jay Leno and Jeremy Clarkson among others.

That movie was surprisingly scary, considering the premise.

Loved the car, too!

I’m not sure that I agree with you on your police work there, Lou. I think that vehicle there probably had dealer plates. DLR.
