TR Robertson — With all of the movies that have been made, there are times the car, that the hero or heroine drives, stands out as much as the leads in the movie. Based on the type of car, car sales of a particular make and model can go up after the movie is in theatres. Here is one survey of the top ten movie cars and the movie the car was featured in.

Top Ten Movie Cars

  1. 1966 Batmobile – first seen in the “Batman” T.V. Show and later used in “Batman the Movie”
