The 86th Academy Awards, also known as The Oscars, will be televised this Sunday, March 2nd from Los Angeles, CA. We at Carsforsale.com are excited and wanted to help pick the winners. Unfortunately, we were NOT selected to be one of the 5,000+ honorary voting members that decide both the award nominees or winners. Instead, we voted and compiled a list of the Top 10 Cars from Movies and TV Shows that are currently for sale on Carsforsale.com.
10. Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds (2000)
In the 2000 film Gone in 60 Seconds, Memphis Raines (Nicolas Cage) boosted hundreds of cars but none gave him more trouble than one; Eleanor. Described in the movie as his “unicorn”, this mythical vehicle can’t be stolen without something going wrong in the process. No need to steal this one because Eleanor is available to buy on Carsforsale.com in Orlando, Florida.
9. 1970 Dodge Charger from The Fast and the Furious (2002)
Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) most prized possession was his Dodge Charger. A dealer in Volo, Ill., gives you the opportunity to buy Dom’s baby, the original 1970 Dodge Charger. This is THE most famous car from the entire series that focuses on fast cars. Although it is a Dodge on the outside, during the production of the film a Chevy 350 engine powered this car.
8. Super Pursuit KITT from Knight Rider (1982)
This Super Pursuit KITT is for sale in Volo, Ill., was one of the original three Super Pursuit mode KITT cars produced specifically for the filming of the TV series starring David Hasselhoff that ran from 1982 to 1986. The components that help make the transformation from KITT to Super Pursuit KITT make the interior of the car very small, so hopefully you aren’t 6 feet 4 inches like The Hoff.
7. Zap-Em Truck from Men in Black (1997)
Listed for sale in Rogers, Minn., is a Zap-Em Pest Control Truck, from the 1997 film Men in Black, was the vehicle Edgar (Vincent D’Onofrio) traveled around New York in, while transporting his giant spaceship. This sugar-loving alien and his Zap Em truck were chased by Agents “K” (Tommy Lee Jones) and “J” (Will Smith) all while trying to save the universe that was around Orion’s belt. (spoiler alert) That cute little kitty!
6. Military Ford from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
Not many prop vehicles from Steven Spielberg’s films ever leave the film set and this is your opportunity to buy one. This 1950 Military Ford, also for sale in Volo, Ill., received a lot of screen time, including an exciting chase scene. This vehicle looks like a camera ready movie star and still has special effects paint on the exterior.
5. Flintstone Mobile from The Flintstones (1994)
This authentic prop vehicle from Universal Studios was used in filming and promotion of the 1994 film, The Flintstones starring John Goodman. This Flintstone Movie vehicle is for sale in Parkersburg, W.V., and features technology from the “Modern Stone Age.” You will need some serious leg power to actually drive this thing around town. No hybrid can ever reproduce the mileage this vehicle will get you; just remember that.
4. Ecto – 1a from Ghostbusters II (1989)
In the 1989 film Ghostbusters II, the Ecto-1a replaced the Ecto-1 from the previous film. This one-of-a-kind Ecto-1a is available from a dealer in Atlanta, GA. One of the most noticeable differences was the addition of a digital message display for Ghostbuster information and their phone number. People can’t call you when there is something strange in the neighborhood without knowing your number. “Who ya’ going to call? Ghostbusters!”
3. DeLorean from Back to the Future (1985)
Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) used the flux capacitor in his DeLorean to travel back in time throughout the three-part movie series, Back to the Future. However, the DeLorean didn’t quite reach the level of success as the movie and original vehicle production stopped after only two years. Although this particular vehicle was not featured in the filming of the movies, the car has become linked to the movie ever since. Flux capacitor sold separately. This particular DeLorean is for sale in Pleasanton, CA. To view all of the DeLorean cars currently being sold on Carsforsale.com, click here.
