America loves cars. America loves movies. So what could be better than combining the two?  Take a trip down memory lane and see if you can name the movies that featured these memorable cars.  If you get stumped, there’s also a quote from each movie as an added clue.

1963 Volkswagen Beetle



“You don’t understand what happens, do you? They make ten thousand cars, they make them exactly the same way, and one or two of ’em turn out to be something special. Nobody knows why.”

Mutt Cutts Van



“Pullover!”  “No, it’s a cardigan but thanks for noticing.”

1981 DeLorean DMC-12



“The way I see it, if you’re gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?”

1959 Cadillac Ecto-1


“Everybody can relax, I found the car. Needs some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end.”

1978 VW Van



“Oh my God, I’m getting pulled over. Everyone, just pretend to be normal.”
