Take an Animated Ride Through 50 Years of Iconic Film Cars

Andrew LaSane

From Furiosa's War Rig in Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) to that ill-fated 1961 Ferrari 250 GT in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986), pop culture vehicles are often more than just props. Viewers express their fanfare by buying and building replicas of these big-screen rides, or paying top dollar for the actual cars used during production. If you can't afford the real thing, you can still enjoy a little high-speed nostalgia with this animation from artist Scott Park.

Park previously created an animation featuring every vehicle from the original Star Wars trilogy, organized by size. This time around, he went for a chronological system, animating 50-plus film cars from the past 50 years (plus a couple of bonus ones at the end). In addition to those previously mentioned, Park and Jalopnik pay homage to cars from The Godfather (1972), The Blues Brothers (1980), Blade Runner (1982), Ghostbusters (1984), Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003), and dozens of others.
