31. 1920 Indian Scout Replica

Where It’s From: The World’s Fastest Indian [2005] film

Claim to Fame:The Indian Scout motorcycle [modified for the movie with a Ducati engine] is not a car but still a damn sexy ride and earns a spot on the list simply for being the fastest, most durable, reliable motorcycle ever produced, even beating out the famed [and cliched] Harley Davidson.

32. 1972 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

Where It’s From: The Gumball Rally [1976] film

Claim to Fame: Alright, we usually have very strict rules about repeating movies, but what can we say? We’re suckers for a 500 lift 288 duration cam. So sue us.

33. 1970 Dodge Challenger 440 R/T

Where It’s From: Vanishing Point [1971] film

Claim to Fame:Based on the Plymouth Barracuda’s E-body, doped-up Kowalski’s [Barry Newman] Challenger R/T hauled some serious ass with a modified powerful 390-hp 440 4-barrel Magnum, TorqueFlite trans, pistol-grip Hurst shifter, and a Dana 60 axle.

34. 1966 Ford Thunderbird

Where It’s From: Thelma and Louise [1991] film

Claim to Fame:The 315-bhp V8 Thunderbird that ferried the two Bonnie’s cross-country on their notorious run from the law made it almost cool to have a violent mid-life crisis.

35. 1967 Pontiac GTO

Where It’s From:xXx [2002] film

Claim to Fame:xXx was the James Bond movie for the more-tattooed crowd, and in keeping with that theme, the ’67 Pontiac GTO was the renegade hero’s getaway ride of choice featuring headlight-mounted rocket launchers and a flame-thrower installed under the air-intake.

36. 1970 Dodge Charger

Where It’s From: The Fast and The Furious [2001] film

Claim to Fame:Hard to pick just one from this gearhead’s wet dream of a film, we settled on one of the stars of the movie, the 1970 Dodge Charger with what was apparently a prop plane engine under [and above] the hood. Kick ass.

37. 1964 Aston Martin DBS

Where It’s From: The Cannonball Run [1981] film

Claim to Fame: Made in the same tone as every car lover’s favorite classic movie, The Gumball Rally, the star of the cross-country race in Cannonball Run was definitely the ’64 Aston Martin – hands down.

38. 1990 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

Where It’s From: Walker Texas Ranger [1993-2001] television series

Claim to Fame: A rare instance in which the driver makes the car cool, the truck from Walker Texas Ranger made the Top 50 because of the simple fact that Chuck Norris drove it. Don’t argue, Chuck Norris will not be pleased.

39. 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish

Where It’s From: Die Another Day [2002] film

Claim to Fame: If we have to explain why any ride from any James Bond movie is lust-able, you disgust us.

40. 2001 Jaguar XKR Mk.I

Where It’s From: Die Another Day [2002] film

Claim to Fame: Normal list rules do not apply. See previous.
