During the Halloween season, thrill lovers gather around the television set to enjoy scary movies! And while you can expect a fair amount of screaming, faux blood, and weapons, have you ever noticed a certain car or cars?
Some classic thrillers and mystery movies feature equally thrilling vehicles. Here are a few of our favorites:
Alfred Hitchcock’s classic, The Birds, featured spooky flying predators (foul fowl, if you pardon the pun)… but it also featured the heroine’s escape vehicle – an Aston Martin DB 2/4!
Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters, naturally. The team of haunt hunting heroes transformed a Cadillac into their ECTO-1.
In the movie Christine, the car is the star! A 1958 Plymouth Fury holds the leading role in Stephen King’s thriller.
The Car features an evil Lincoln Continental out for blood. This is the one time when a hit and run victim can blame the car, not the driver.
Scooby-Doo’s Mystery Machine is one van that has seen more ghouls and goblins than any other. The mystery solving teens couldn’t do it without their dog, or their car!
Whether helping the hero escape or aiding the villain, these cars are just a handful of the automobiles in Hollywood.
A scary car condition you can avoid this month is transmission failure! Give us a call at 620-654-3445 to set up your next inspection to make sure you avoid living through a horror movie of your own by being stranded at the side of the road!
