My coworkers and I put together an interactive list of iconic film and TV vehicles, complete with random bits of trivia. This all started with the discovery of a weird factoid about the Magnum P.I. - Magnum's car was supposed to be a Porsche 928 but the automaker refused to make one with a larger sunroof for aerial shots - and, over time, turned into this project here.

We launched with over 100 vehicles and are looking for suggestions for new entries. Most of the user-submissions up to this point have been almost exclusively cars from the Fast and the Furious franchise. Nothing wrong with a little Tokyo Drift but I have the sneaking suspicion that a not insignificant amount of the population thinks those movies invented cars.

I'm looking for some vehicles from films that are off the beaten path, so to speak. We have some already (e.g. the Landmaster from Damnation Alley or Caradine's car from Death Race 2000) but can always use some more. That said, if we missed anything super obvious, let me know!

TL;DR: Launched a curated movie/tv car list. Need suggestions for cars from cult favorites/movies without Vinn Diesel. Find it here:
