We wanted to start 2016 off with some practical advice, but this month we thought we’d remind you that there’s more to cars than oil changes and miles per gallon. They can also be awesome! And what would better showcase that than going through some of our favorite famous movie cars, the ones that people looked at wide-eyed as kids, daydreaming about one day having a car like that.
1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
Yes, KITT. We can’t imagine growing up watching Knight Rider and not wanting to own a car like KITT. A sports car with almost extraterrestrial abilities who talks and thinks? What else could one possibly need? A car that can hold a conversation with you, make holograms, shoot missiles and carry groceries is all we want for any Christmas, ever.
If you’re of a certain age, not growing up wanting to own KITT means that you probably grew up wanting to own the ever-so-famous DeLorean from Back to the Future. Because if you can’t have a car that talks, you might as well have a car that can travel through time and space – if for no other reason, so that you can see and drive every awesome car in the history of the world.
1964 Aston Martin DB5
Almost every Bond car is a legend to some degree, but probably the most legendary of them all is the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 driven by Sean Connery in Goldfinger and Thunderball. If transported from screen to real life, it would also come with more than its fair share of gadgets and inventions – including a GPS system Connery was seen using in this car in the 60s.
We can tell you that it was pretty hard to pick only three, and we had a lot of runners up from the 1977 Pontiac Trans Am seen in Smokey and the Bandit to the 1973 For Gran Torino from The Big Lebowski. The world is full of great cars that deserve to be taken care of, so if you need any help with yours, whether with oil change or hybrid repair in Philadelphia, don’t hesitate to contact us!
