The Toughest Cars in the Movies

'66 Ford ThunderbirdFor many people, music defines their history. For others, it’s all about the cars. Fortunately, the two go hand-in-hand as the toughest cars usually involve the toughest music, too. Here is a list of the toughest cars in the movies:

Thelma & Louise1966 Ford Thunderbird Convertible: The spunky duo make their trek across the country in the powder blue Ford Thunderbird together. They pick up Brad Pitt and run away from the law all in the car. It IS the setting for the perfect girl power movie, until the finale when the duo drive the car over the edge of Dead Horse Point which stands in for the Grand Canyon. Even covered in desert dust, the Ford Thunderbird is just as beautiful and rugged as the two costars, Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis.

'67 Shelby MustangFerris Bueller’s Day Off – 1961 Ferrari GT California: If you can’t get “Oh Yeah” out of your head as soon as you think of this car, then you are not alone. This tough and sexy car is one the coolest cars to ever hit the big screen. Since there were only 100 of these cars ever made, most of them were reproductions, especially the ones that were on the road. A real one was used for close ups.

Gone In Sixty Seconds – 1967 Shelby Mustang Fastback: This car was so bad it could keep cool even with the name Eleanor. The first Eleanor, the 1973 Mustang was tough, but not as tough as the Eleanor used in the remake. Eleven identical cars were made for the movie, but only seven made it through the filming. In its toughness, one of them sold for $1 million – which proves the car’s badness.

'77 Pontiac Trans AmSmokey and the Bandit – 1977 Pontiac Trans Am: No tough car list is complete without Bandit. The black and gold icon rules any list about tough, cool, bad, hot, sexy cars. Once Burt Reynolds appeared in this sexy speed demon that jumped lakes and outran the law, every guy in the country wanted a black Trans Am (and the moustache) just like Burt’s.
