Eleven Famous Cars From the Movies

Having seen the new film adaptation of the "Green Hornet" TV show and its iconic car - the Black Beauty, I got to thinking (always dangerous) what are some of the most memorable cars seen in the movies?

Most of these are fast cars,  or souped up cars with special gadgetry.  But when you think of the car, it will always make you think of the related movie.

Here's a scene from Bullitt, with one of our entries - a 1968 Ford Mustang

Honorable mention goes to the AMC Pacer from "Wayne's World." Not because it was a great car - it wasn't - but I nearly fell out of my seat from laughter when I first saw it in the theater.  Although the licorice dispenser was a nice touch, it's no comparison to guns or other hidden weaponry.
