Whether you saw it in the movies, at a car show, or just on the internet, there is that just ONE car that you (secretly) wish you owned. Some may hide their obsession for these cars because it’s just too much of fantasy, often blurring the line of acceptable obsession when it comes to fictional, inanimate objects. From classic, to subtle, to outright ridiculously cool cars, here are a couple cars we would all want to own.
It’s easy to fall for cars seen in the media. There are several cars from television that made the jump from the small screen to the movie theaters—including Starsky and Hutch’s Gran Torino and the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard. Both cars were quintessential aspects of their show and made such an impact on viewers that some car enthusiasts are still trying to recreate them. Other standouts from TV? Cartoon cars like the Batmobile and all the vehicles from Transformers have already made their live debut in movies. It was every guy’s dream to own Bumblebee from the Transformers movie (but probably won’t admit), a bright yellow Camaro concept that was just way to cool.
Surprisingly, one of the cooler cars of its day has never made it to the big screen—KITT from Knight Rider. A talking Trans Am with attitude, KITT really forecasted the future of vehicles.
