QOTD: What Movie Car Would You Drive?

qotd what movie car would you drive

I was channel-surfing the other night and came across the final Back to the Future movie. Now, like any child of the '80s, I like DeLoreans -- though I prefer the original to the time-machine converted since they look cleaner -- but I really, really love the Toyota pickup Marty dreams about. The same one he gets after he returns from the Old Wet.

So I wanted to ask you -- what movie ride would you like to have? For the purposes of this question, let's take time travel and flying out of the equation. Yes, you can pick a DeLorean, but not because it flies. Similarly, the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters counts, but please choose it because it looks cool and not for any reasons involving busting some heads (in a spiritual sense, of course).

Not only should we take flying and time travel out of the equation, but we should also focus on cars, here. Let's also take out sci-fi stuff like the Star Wars landspeeders. We will, however, accept wheeled Batmobiles.

Other than that, the world is your oyster. And while many of you might pick cool stuff like Knight Rider's KITT or the A-Team van, you can also pick weirder stuff. The 1973 Ford Gran Torino the Dude drives in The Big Lebowski? Fair game. The rental Chrysler LeBaron from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles? Go for it.

Sound off below.

      The World is Not Enough. Sliced in half after the car just had a few minutes of screentime on wooden catwalks above the Caspian Sea. Denise Richards plays a nuclear scientist named Christmas. You read that correctly. And there is a combination killer and groaner Bond joke at the very end.
