From the arrival of cinema and a train steaming into La Ciotat Station cinema audiences have long been in love with both the fast and the furious. The adage ‘the car’s the star’ has long been evident in Hollywood’s annals with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Herbie, the Batmobile or the family of Minis (Minions?) in The Italian Job taking centre stage and linger in the memory.
In association with the people from Van Monster we stood atop our internet tower and gazed at the past, then plucked five of the most iconic vehicles to appear in movies.
5) 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

And of course, Pam packs 100 pounds of cocaine to sell, which they end up having to throw at some corrupt cops during the second of two high-speed chases -- each of which would have made an excellent Gif, if GIFs were like two minutes long.
