    I'm not sure I can; I mean KITT? Doc's DeLorean? The Tumbler?

    Okay, Bumblebee, Christine, K.I.T.T., the DeLorean? How am I supposed to choose? Thye're all great cars on that list.

    I can't really vote for BB becuase it feels like cheating. He's not actually a car, just using it as a disguise.

    I mean, the DeLorean can travel THROUGH TIME. It's pretty hard to top that. Even K.I.T.T. can't travel through time.

    Any greatest movie/tv car of all time poll that doesn't include the Interceptor doesn't get my vote.

    Yeah, sorry, I had to go DeLorean. :(  I mean, c'mon.... it's Back to the Future. But I'm happy that Bumblebee is at least on the list!

    As far as "cars" go KITT wins. He's the ultimate non-transforming car. He could talk with you, Turbo Boost (as well as all his over functions) speed, style, protection and most of all, he could drive himself. How friggin awesome would it be to on a date and have your car park itself then pick you up? I don't care for time travel. General Lee is just a red neck's Charger. Most of the cars on that list don't have any special abilities. I want to live as large as possible now. No car lives larger than KITT. Well, maybe KARR...

    i couldn't vote because the poll was invalidated by a real car that actually was. The Ferrari from Magnum, P.I. was as real as any of us, and other than it being a Ferrari/icon car, it wasn't special. Ecto-1 was a car that never was more than it.

    it may be anal, but i kinda don't like seeing BB on the list becuase he's a toddler compared to even the Tumbler, and i thought a car becomes an icon or great with the test of time. Hell, the 1989 batmobile spanks the Tumbler, IMHO.

    I had to vote for the urban assault vehicle from "Stripes." That vehicle had it goin' ON, plus it helped Bill Murray bag a chick. Plus much love for any Stripes mention.

    Close second, Shaggin' Waggin from "Dumb and Dumber," because that's totally a road trip vehicle.

    I would've voted for the DeLorean, but I'd probably just use it to go back and smack myself upside the head a lot. That and to go Wal-Mart raiding in the mid to late 80's to complete a MISB G1 collection (to say nothing of Joes and He-Man.)

    Sorry, but I had to give my vote to the DeLorean.

    A car that'll turn into a big-@$$ robot bodyguard who doesn't mind if you make out with your babe on top of him is nice, but also in that regard kinda creepy - well, that and the possibility of John Turturro barging into your home when you least expect it.

    On the other hand, the DeLorean travels through time, flies, and can send vans full of terrorists careening off your tail into flaming oblivion. It's also great for spooking the heck out of backwoods rednecks and is good for attracting any girl who wants to know what her wedding is gonna be like. Just keep the damn gull-wing doors locked when you have to get out to rescue her and it's all good. :tongue:

    Had a hard time deciding between KITT or the General.

    There has yet to be an incarnation of Bumblebee that I actually like, so as long as he's the Autobot to choose from, I ain't voting TF.

    Delorean for me.

    Even Herbie > Michael Bay's "Bumblebee". Nice car. No Personality. Scary British Pervert voice. No thanks.

    I love how this thread was to get Bumblebee #1, and most people are just going "Oh, SNAP! The DeLorean!"

    The Tumbler. 'Cos it's a fictional car that was actually built and could do some of the stuff you see on film.
