In honor of the upcoming Speed Racer, Matt Atchity over at Rotten Tomatoes has put together an impressive list of the most memorable cars to ever appear onscreen -- and if 50 wasn't impressive enough, he has put together an exhaustive list of honorable mentions.
There's no arguing with his picks -- for me, Dumb and Dumber's dog van ranks high, as does Garth Algar's MirthMobile. (You don't know how badly I coveted one as a teenager.) I think the Bond Astin Martin should rank above General Lee and Speed Racer though -- but I'm always one for a classic.
My number one pick -- yes, even above the DeLorean -- is the above. Mad Max's Modified 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT Coupe, ranked #26 on Atchity's list. That car is all kinds of sexy. I'm not really sure what that says about me, but there you go. There's a replica in my home town and it kills me that it is not mine.
Check out Matt's list, but come back and tell us your own picks. And if you have a car like Mad Max's, I'm all yours. I'm just saying.
