The motor stars of our favourite movie classics just got a little bit more factually accurate.
By bridging the gap between what you love about movies and reality, we’ve created the following stars of responsibly priced cars. Each movie poster has been lovingly rejigged to feature a car that was manufactured the year that the movie was release. As you can imagine, this has resulted in some surprisingly practical solutions and leaves you wondering what the props manager was really thinking.
We hope you enjoy.
The A-Team was released in 1983, alongside the Volkswagen Westfalia; a motor built for family camping which has become an iconic vehicle for surfers and beach lovers everywhere. Imagine the A-Team racing in this beauty across the states from a crime they didn’t commit. It’s fun for all the family.

The Dukes of Hazzard
Whilst the film wasn’t released until 2005, the TV series was a perfect product of the 70’s; as is the well-loved Volkswagen Beetle! Just picture the Duke Boys racing around Kentucky and away from the law in this little machine.
In a Fiat Panda, you simply couldn’t feel safer touring around an island filled with dinosaurs spurn from frog DNA. Unless of course a storm wipes out the power and you’re left broken down next to the giant chicken pen – clever girl.
The Love Bug
What have we done to Herbie? We think racing around in a Volkswagen Beetle would be too easy for racing driver, Jim Douglas. Plus, we think this Kaiser Jeep M35A2 could only come first place in a race against its streamlined opposition. Though he could accidently crush them all en route, if the determination of Herbie the Beetle is anything to go by…
