Cars With Cult Status


Whether it made its mark sometime in history, became a pop culture gem, or is in the midst of gaining popularity, cult cars are often met with nostalgia and affection. Some cars have earned their cult reputation, others… are lucky.

Check out these cult classics.

Shuffle down the list a bit and we can start with the Volkswagon Microbus. Is there any other vehicle that defines a generation? These love buses from the 60’s were practically second homes to the hippies that owned them. Often decked out with peace signs and flowers on the outside and filled with beaded screens and other groovy things, the Microbus is like a time machine—reflecting culture and lifestyles back then.

Speaking of time machines… the DeLorean. This vehicle hit cult status in the mid 80’s thanks to the time traveling adventure movie Back to The Future. Maybe one of the coolest time machines in movie history, the DeLorean itself had evolved throughout the trilogy. It’s almost impossible for people not to think of Doc Brown’s line, “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads” every time this cult favorite is actually on the road.

How about modern vehicles with a cult following you ask? The Jeep Wrangler has made a name for itself. Whether it’s the off road trips, the open design, or the fact that every teenager in 90’s movies drove one, the Wrangler’s induction of cult status has been achieved.
