1) The 1958 two-door red and white Plymouth Fury named "Christine," from the movie of the same title. B!tch of a car. With an apt name to go with it. Fury.

2) The 1967 Mustang ShelbyGT 500 nickmaned "Eleanor" in the Nicholas Cage remake of "Gone in 60 Seconds." The original Eleanor was a 1973 Mustang Mach1.

3) The 1968 Mustang 390 Fastback driven by Steve McQueen vs a black Dodge Charger R/T 440 Magnum driven by bad guys in the movie "Bullitt."

4) The stainless steel bodied DeLorean DMC-12 used in the "Back ToThe Future" movie series.

Frank Martin's A8 vs. Tony Stark's R8. ;D

How about Tony "Agent X44" Falcon's white car? I can't remember that car anymore except that it was colored white and obviously a poor copy of James Bond's car.

Even the humble Mitsubishi Minica has its place in the sun, when Vilma Santos had a movie entitled "Vilma and the Beep-Beep Minica" in the late 70s to keep up with the attention drawn by Herbie... :P

Speaking of Ferrari, how about Magnum's classic red Ferrari, I forget if it was a 308 or the later 328.
