30. Toretto's Charger
Type of car: 1970 Dodge Charger
Special features: Blower, wheelie bars
Appears in: The Fast and the Furious

This is the car that even Dominic Toretto admits he's afraid of. And what's better than watching the body twist as the engine revs? But it's tragic to see this car get wrecked (even if the blower and wheelie bars are faked).

Kill Bill Vol. 1

29. Buck's Pussy Wagon
Type of car: 1997 Chevrolet C-2500 Silverado Fleetside
Special features: Custom paint, spoiler
Appears in: Kill Bill Vol. 1

Buck is such a sleazebag that we're glad to see Beatrix kill him. And his ride is as sleazy he is, but at least it's easy to find in a parking lot.

Wayne's World

28. Garth's Mirth Mobile
Type of car: 1976 AMC Pacer
Special features: Custom flame job, cassette player
Appears in: Wayne's World

Wayne may be cool, but his best buddy Garth isn't, although he tries to be. Garth's car is the same way: it's isn't actually cool, but it's really, really trying to be.

National Lampoon's Vacation

27. The Family Truckster
Type of car: originally a Ford LTD Country Squire
Special features: Faux wood panelling, metallic pea paint
Appears in: National Lampoon's Vacation

The producers of Vacation wanted to create an example of a completly disgusting and awful station wagon. It's ugly, it's badly engineered, and it's unreliable. In other words, it's a typical early 80s American car.

Mad Max
more info...
26. Pursuit Special
Type of car: Modified 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT Coupe
Special features: Siren, enlarged gas tank, anti-theft device
Appears in: Mad Max

The last of the V8 Interceptors is the only Aussie car on the list, and it's a doozy. It's loud, it's fast, and it just plain looks mean. But it's also a cop car, which means Max gets to use it to run down evil bikers.
