DeLorean DMC-12

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.

Of course, there are plenty of obvious answers such as all 492 Fast & Furious movies and stuff like Gone in 60 Seconds. We’ll stick to car selections from the big screen this week; next Monday, I’ll ask you about your faves from television.
