Rules:
  • When you answer the post above you (photos appreciated) you get to name the next film, TV show, or franchise.
  • The next person picks their car from that production - it can be either the Hero Car or Villain Car. If there is no clear Hero or Villain car, then pick the featured car from that production you like best and chose another for the next person.
  • It is acceptable to repeat films so others can answer too, just don't pick the same one you answered. There will be some overlap anyway if someone names a particular film and another person later names an entire franchise - that's okay.
  • Motorcycles can play too.
  • The cars can be modified examples of stock cars, but they must be possible - KITT would be acceptable, Transformers, Gundams, Jaegers, The Flying Duchman, etc are not.
Try this site if you need help remembering all the cars in a film: http://www.imcdb.org/

To get started:

Film: Never Say Never Again

The Renault R5 Turbo - belonging to Fatima Blush

I've always thought this car looked amazing with the crazy wide wheel arches, intake scoops behind the doors, rally-style fog lights, and all in a tiny little hatchback riding on stupidly wide tires. It is hands down one of my top two favorite hatchbacks.


Next film: Gumball Rally (1976)

Great choice. i love hatchbacks, and it's hard to find one more extreme than this one.
As for movie, you picked an easy one to get things started, huh? :lol:

Well, I always had a thing for the De Tomaso Pantera, so here it is:

That classic wedge shape, the Italian design....and an American V8? It's a reliable, budget Lamborghini Miura. :lol:
One more, for good measure:

Next film is an odd one:
"The Hidden (1987)"

I admit I have not seen that film, but I looked up the cars anyway. Unfortunately the ones I really like were just set dressing and not featured - like the Lamborghini Miura and Espada. I'm going to have to pick the Porsche 928.



Next Film: The Italian Job (1969)


Just because the last one made me think of the Lamborghini Miura.

Nice choice!
Yeah, "The Hidden" is a very weird movie. I was a teenager, so the fact that the alien had a taste for Ferraris made me curious and I ended up watching it.
As for the car...the obvious choice would be the Miura, but I must admit I fell in love with the car the villain uses, a FIAT Dino Coupe, a car I only know about because of that movie:

Next movie: "Pretty Woman" (1990), because I want an Esprit. :p
