Cars from the cinema was specified. I voted for Bumblebee.

I also liked the Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am and a host of others.

Well, you said ALL the cars from cinema so I vote for the flying jalopy of the Absent minded professor with Fred McMurray as the professor.

Maybe it should have been open to the best vehicle of all cinema? The '32 yellow deuce coupe of "American Graffiti" would be a good one or the 1968 Mustang, "Eleanor" of "Gone in Sixty Seconds". Another good one would be the 1970 Dodge Charger from "The Fast and the Furious".

Then there's the `76 Gran Torino from Starsky & Hutch.

Based upon the choice given, I voted for christine.

Considered herbie, but I have only seen the original movies.

If we're throwing out other options, how about the Ford Falcon from the Mad Max/Road Warrior movies?

Mad Max Interceptor
