I don't see how the XB and Bullitt Mustang lost. Hate Fords much? Or just youth don't know those movies?
It could indeed, but the Chevrolet One Fifty from Two-Lane Blacktop tied 39th in the GTPlanet poll with two votes, and didn't make it through.Two Lane Blacktop could be up in there...
The list really is GTPlanet members' choices. We used the original 40 cars from the original survey, added a bunch of cars from the editorial team and anything suggested in the thread for the original survey. We pretty much discarded anything with two stars or fewer on IMCDB and kept anything with four stars or higher, and then went through the three star cars on a case-by-case basis; the 2F2F R34 is a three star car that made it through - it's not in the film for long, but it's the car most associate with the film, even if Brian drives the green Lancer for more time, and it stars in the hero stunt at the beginning.Cool list. 👍
Indeed, but GTPlanet users created the longlist and shortlist...Shame its twitter users only...
We're using a well-known Twitter polling format called "World Cup of" (as seen in the World Cup of Biscuits). Some of you don't have Twitter accounts, so you won't be able to vote in this - which is a bit of a shame as your nominations created the original 70+ car list and your votes created this final 32-car shortlist.
Definitely. I love the great community here at GTPlanet and taking it out to the often frankly toxic Twitter, is as you say a shame. I know the other thread didn't get a great response but with a news article I'm sure it would've done.
https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/whats-the-greatest-movie-car-of-all-time.381476/Yeah, I didn't even see the other thread. Where is it?
I'm afraid you've catastrophically misunderstood, even though I laid it out in post #10.Definitely. I love the great community here at GTPlanet and taking it out to the often frankly toxic Twitter, is as you say a shame. I know the other thread didn't get a great response but with a news article I'm sure it would've done.
GTP members kept dropping their own ideas into the thread, so I kept a record of them. I also got the editorial team to suggest some, and kept a whole bunch of suggestions from the survey. Over the course of an entire month of that thread, we ended up with a large list of about 80 cars. Then, as I said:We should do our own survey. With Blackjack. And hookers.
That was then this thread: https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/whats-the-greatest-movie-car-of-all-time.381476/We pretty much discarded anything with two stars or fewer on IMCDB and kept anything with four stars or higher, and then went through the three star cars on a case-by-case basis; the 2F2F R34 is a three star car that made it through - it's not in the film for long, but it's the car most associate with the film, even if Brian drives the green Lancer for more time, and it stars in the hero stunt at the beginning.
I think we ended up with 69 cars, and GTPlanet members voted for their favourites over a couple of weeks (I gave them ten choices in the poll ) to finish up with the final 32 (actually 31 - I ran another poll in the editorial forum to pick the 32nd car from the six cars tied for 32nd).
And on the first page, I said:we need to make the list smaller
And the response was great (aside from the people complaining a car no-one had suggested in over a month to do so wasn't included). We had over 400 votes cast for the cars. We were able to take the top 31, plus a 32nd car taken from a six-way play-off, and do something cool with them.When the voting is done, we're going to take the 32 highest scoring cars and we'll do something cool with them.
The 250 was like the 928 Joel used in Risky Business: "Taking a ride in Daddy's car. ". No doubt about its role.I am not american and agree with you that the bullit Mustang is more Iconic in cinema then the Skyline. But I disagree with the XB vs the Ferrari 250. The Ferrari had a more significant role in Ferris Beuller then the XB in Mad Max.
I can't believe the Peugeot's new owner is a GTPlanet member, that's awesome! Congrats!
Actually the dukes of hazzard had 3 movies made. The 1st was a made for tv movie with the original cast in the 90s, the 2nd was the most well known with johnny knoxville and sean williams scott, and the 3rd was a direct to video movie which honestly i feel was the best one of the three. It was rated R and i feel had more of the gritty feel then the tv show. As if it was what the dukes of hazzard was suppose to be...but you know, 1980s network tv.I'm missing KITT from Night Rider, I know it's a TV series but so was The Dukes of Hazard. Granted the latter has 1 movie spinoff but it that the reason for being on the list or not, ooh well.
I think cars from TV series have a much heavier and lasting impact than cars from movies due to TV series running multiple years and a movie just south of 2 hours, so it's odd to leave them out. For me personally my top 3 of most iconic cars of both all come from TV series:
1 - Black Pontiac Firebird (KITT) from Night Rider
2 - White Ferrari Testa Rossa from Miami Vice (wasn't there a crappy movie spin off as well? )
3 - Black Vandura van (A-Team)
Nevertheless I'll vote this weekend on Twitter.
