What if all famous movie cars had to be cheap?

Filed under: , , ,

Unconventional Heroes by Gerald Bear

Hero cars in films need to be sexy. It's why Doc Brown and Marty went back in time in a DeLorean, and why Bo and Luke Duke tore about Hazzard County in a Dodge Charger. The stars of the show need to get about in something cool.

Artist Gerald Bear seems to disagree with this notion, as his latest series of illustrations, Unconventional Heroes, shows. He's taken the look of famous cars from both the big and small screen and applied their appearance to far, ahem, more humble offerings.

Starsky and Hutch's Ford Gran Torino is transformed into a Fiat Panda, while Speed Racer's Mach 5 takes the form of a BMW Isetta bubble car. Niki Lauda's Ferrari Formula One car, though, is subjected to the funniest transformation, although Optimus Prime's latest form is pretty humorous, as well.

Take a look below at the gallery of images, and be sure to let us know which is your favorite.

Inside the minds of people who own movie cars

Filed under: , , ,

A new video series documents movie car owners.

People who own movie cars are a different breed. Judging from the two videos on theAFICIONAUTO, a trend seems to be forming among them: they're not interested in cars per se, but more specifically cars that double as movie props.

This new video series hosted by Christopher Rutkowski promises to document the world of movie car owners, which is full of people who are eclectic as the cars they own. The first episode focuses on a man who owns a DeLorean DMC replica Time Machine from Back to the Future, and the second profiles a man who owns a replica Batmobile from 1966's Batman.

Head on below to watch them, and perhaps take some time to read about a Porsche 928 from Risky Business.

Knight Rider / Back to the Future mashup - video screencap

If you're a fan of car-focused media from the 1980s, have we got a video for you. A certifiable genius Someone has mashed up scenes from the Back to the Future trilogy with the opening theme and voiceover from Knight Rider. Yes, Doc Brown's Delorean time machine replaces Michael Knight's KITT, while The Hoff is replaced by Michael J. Fox.

The funny thing is, if BTTF's theme song weren't so absolutely memorable, the Knight Rider treatment would really feel quite natural. Take a look below to watch the full mashup, and let us know what you think in Comments.

Restored Back to the Future DeLorean arrives at Universal Studios [w/video]

TIme Machine Restoration Delorean DMC-12 - front three-quarter view - video screencap

Fans of the Back to the Future trilogy will be pleased to learn that Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown's modified 1981 DeLorean DMC-12, better known as a time machine, is on display at Universal Studios Hollywood in California after a painstaking museum-quality restoration over the past year. While Universal used a handful of cars during filming from 1985 to 1990, this particular vehicle is referred to as the "Hero A" car, as it was the only Delorean featured in all three films.

The Time Machine Restoration Team was tasked with bringing the car back to its original state during its first appearance in Back to the Future, complete with its plutonium-powered flux capacitor (later versions were modified to develop power for time travel from lightning and garbage). From what we can tell, the team's work appears flawless.

While we are still waiting for the official announcement from Universal regarding the project, the team has put up a slick teaser video that you can watch below and has posted a bunch of pictures on its Facebook page. Enthusiast of the films or not, both are worthy of a closer look.
