  1. wow.. different types of cars

  2. I would think that for the general public a 1957 Chevy or 1959 Cadillac would be the non-movie car most recognizable.

  3. Ok I have no idea why this car get on the pic but... Jesus Prudencio work, right row, 3 picture down. I'm 99% sure that's FSC Żuk. Workhorse of Polish "worker class" of old times. But, world famous?

  4. the two most famous cars in the world are the General Lee Charger and the Smokey & the Bandit Trans-Am

    the General Lee most famous vehicle in the world by far if you consider sales of models and toys and its image printed on shirts, posters, etc.
    who knows how many hundreds of millions of models and toys have been made.

    oddly the two most famous cars in the world, both had confederate flags on them.

    1. HEY! You can't answer the question you posed! (okay, I posed it, you inspired it) same thing. No answering. I already know your answer.
      I think it's the Batmobile, it's been around for 50 years or so, and for all the reason you gave.
