Well, the blogosphere has spoken, and what it has to say is this: How could you forget Eleanor? The star of the original “Gone in 60 Seconds” was far and away the car mentioned most by commenters as the car most deserving of a spot on our Top 10 Movie Cars list. To be honest, the 1973 Mustang Mach 1 was on our short list (and a personal fave), but it fell just short. Of the other cars posters say we overlooked, the remaining top seven (in order of support) were:

  • ‘70 Dodge Challenger, “Vanishing Point”
  • ’77 Trans Am, “Smokey and the Bandit”
  • ’32 Ford Coupe, “American Graffiti”
  • BMW 735, “Transporter”
  • ’76 AMC Pacer, “Wayne’s World”
  • Audi A8 L W-12, “Transporter 2”
  • Audi S8, “Ronin”

Other cars that received online support can be found below:
