When you’re watching a movie with a great car in it – doesn’t your mind start talking to you saying “oh I’d love to drive that”. I’m with you – so here’s my list of Top Five Movie Cars I’d like to drive.

  • The Ford Mustang GT 390 from "Bullitt"

    The greatest chase scene in movie history? I think so. But I’m also partial to Steve McQueen movies – knowing he’s a legit driver who gets how to drive this car – and the sounds of shifting that 390 up and down the hills in San Francisco…pure beauty.

  • Pontiac Trans Am from "Smokey And The Bandit"

    Who hasn’t wanted to drive this bad boy while being chased by the authorities? The deep sound of that V8 when Burt Reynolds kicked it into gear (and you got to cruise around with Sally Fields as well).

  • Aston Martin DB5 - Goldfinger

    Sean Connery in this car? As cool as it gets – who didn’t want a car with a smoke screen?

  • Back To The Future DeLorean

    “You built a time machine out of a Delorean?” – Iconic line from Back To The Future…and such a wonderful car (my neighbor had a Delorean when I was growing up – used to clean it with a steel wool brush)

  • Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"

    Okay – Ferris talked Cameron into taking the Ferrari…but c’mon, who wouldn’t take this bad boy for a spin?
