QOTD: And the Oscar Goes to …

Even those with even the slightest passing interest in Hollywood movies know that the Oscars were doled out last night at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Films are fine, but anytime a screenplay involves copious (and sometimes gratuitous!) volumes of cars, well, gearheads like us tend to sit up and take notice.

Never mind Best Actor or Best Screenplay. What’s your pick for Best Car?

In case you’re suffering from a weekend hangover a bit worse than normal this morning, here’s a refresher of some notable movie cars provided by — of all people — Walmart.

Selecting one of the machines from this series of flicks is totally cool but also totally easy. There are plenty of more obscure options from which to choose.

Gearheads like us certainly know of the BMW M5 from Ronin but I doubt anyone who’s not totally into cars will recall this as one of the greatest chase scenes of all time. The casual observer wouldn’t have called this movie a car flick.

    Speaking of the Oscars, saw Green Book. Good movie, enjoyed it. But the two 62 Caddys in the movie looked pretty tired for a movie taking place in 1962. Smoke coming out the exhaust and very wavy sides from some angles. I think they could have done better.

    The vermin scum of Hollywood wouldn't dare pick a car unless it virtue signaled everything PC. They could probably even find something offensive with a Prius. A Bullitt Mustang, Vanishing Point Charger, Lincoln Mark "The Car" would make their collective heads explode. So new question: What is the most PC, virtue signaling car out there?

      Good call on "The Car", a cuustomized 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III. Scared me to death as a young teen.

    Any votes yet for Ecto One? An entire generation of people can hear that weird siren and know instantly what it is.

      Well, you're the first person to mention the Knight Industries 2000.
