5 Most Wanted Hollywood Muscle Cars

They were some of the most characterising and memorable cars ever to have graced the shiny Screen. These classic muscle vehicles were (and still are) badass in every way and were actually inexpensive during their time. Today, regrettably, automakers and video studios are more interested in trading new (and usually costly) vehicles if they’re coolinging or not. But there was a time when product placement hadn’t been invented yet and videos boasted the coolest vehicles out there. Here are five of our favorites.

1979 Dodge Charger

It was on the little screen from 1979 until 1985 and it went to the large-scale screen in the 2005 characteristic movie. The Dodge Charger that boasted in “The Dukes of Hazzard” became most well known for its assortment of stunts and absurd leaps that boasted in just about every episode. Renowned as the General Lee, the classic Dodge was actually a pool of 256 Chargers that were used for filming the episode, of which 17 are still supposedly round today. Phrase has it that one stunt Charger was used per episode because they were compelled to lastingly leave due to unwarranted structural impairment from all of those airborne stunts.

1968 Ford Mustang

This is what looks cooling while driving very quick and dangerous at the same time. The view of Steve McQueen in “Bullitt” tearing up the streets of San Francisco in a green 1968 Ford Mustang while chasing the bad friend in a very dark Dodge Charger R/T is nothing less than cinematic perfection. For vehicle nuts, anyway.  The result was likely the best car-chase view of all time, propelling the movie into iconic rank in our books. We can literally watch it several times without ever getting uninterested. It was so iconic, in detail, that Ford would subsequent offer Mustangs in the same hue scheme bearing the initial movie’s name.

1970 Dodge Challenger R/T

White 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T who was driven by a delivery boy who was living on a never-ending adrenaline rush to help get away his haunted past turned out to be the greatest star of the 1971 movie “Vanishing Point”. With Kowalski behind the wheel and high on amphetamines, he tries to deliver the white muscle car from Denver to San Francisco in a very short time only to be followed by cops through the wasteland. Both Kowalski and the Challenger become the perfect image of defying authority. If you haven’t seen the film, proceed rent it.

1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

Performance took attack in the mid- to late- 1970s due to growing emissions controls and an oil urgent situation, but that didn’t stop Burt Reynolds and his mustache to have a party and a good time in a 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am in “Smoky and the Bandit”. Nicknamed Trigger in the movie, a total of 4 of these Firebirds were built specifically for the movie and all were impaired in production. After accomplishing the movie, Burt Reynolds – then at the height of his career – really went out and acquired his own very dark Trans Am which strike the auction impede back in 2009.

1967 Shelby Mustang

In 2000 was made remake of the movie “Gone in 60 Seconds” from 1974 in which was not included original’s 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1. Instead, the main car thief Randall “Memphis” Raines drove the 1967 Shelby Mustang. You want proof? Ever since the movie came out there’s been a apparently endless allowance of Eleanor replicas, and Hot Rod magazine recorded it as one of the 100 most influential cars in the annals of warm rodding.
