Tommy Boy

35. Richard's classic Plymouth
Type of car: 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX
Special features: Can carry stunned deer in back seat
Appears in: Tommy Boy

Another road movie with a classic car, but this one gets more and more abuse as the movie goes one. They lose the top. And the hood. And a door. And finally the car catches fire. But at least Tommy and Richard save the company...

34. Shaggin' Wagon
Type of car: 1984 Ford Econoline
Special features: Custom bodywork and exterior fur lining
Appears in: Dumb and Dumber

Ask Harry and Lloyd; there's nothing like having a company car. Even if it does look like a giant sheep dog.

Transformers

33. Bumblebee
Type of car: 1977/2009 Chevrolet Camaro
Special features: V8 engine, robot mode
Appears in: Transformers

Although previously seen as a Volkswaken Beetle, Bumblebee makes his film debut as a 1977 Camaro. But he's sensitive about how he looks, so he changes himself in to a 2009 Camaro. What else can he change into? A giant robot, natch!


Transformers





The Italian Job

32. Charlie's getaway MINIs
Type of car: 2003 MINI Cooper S
Special features: Gold bar hauling capacity
Appears in: The Italian Job (2003)

When BMW reintroduced the MINI in 2000, it was only a matter of time before someone got around to remaking The Italian Job. The action moves from Rome to Los Angeles, but the idea is the same; watching MINIs outrun anyone trying to chase them.

Days of Thunder
more info...
31. Cole Trickle's race car
Type of car: 1990 Chevrolet Lumina NASCAR
Special features: NASCAR racing specs
Appears in: Days of Thunder

It gets wrecked and rebuilt, and sees multiple paint schemes over the course of the film, but that's to be expected for a typical NASCAR racing machine.
