So, it's likely I've posted before about what a car nerd I am. Possibly. I forget.
But really, all my friends growing up were similarly possessed. I had my first crush on a girl in kindergarten, partially because she was cute, but mostly because her mother dropped her off at school in a bright yellow '71 442.
Even then I was deep, no?And I look back at the films I enjoyed as a kid, and so many of them involved cars that, subsequently, I wanted. It may explain why I had over 200 Hot Wheels and similar cars, that we'd drag out and race around the basement or front porch. It may explain why I still have over 200 Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars, in this, the waning part of my 39th year on this planet. It may explain why I still gravitate toward the Hot Wheels display when I'm hanging around Target or the grocery store.I could do this the easy way, dear reader. I could give you the film, and you would then just need to guess which car I liked so much it made an impact on me through today. However, you know me, I don't do anything the easy way. As such, I'll give you the year of the film and the year and model of the car, you just need to identify the film.
Hint, one of these cars was in Monday's movie quote movie.

Oh, what the heck, one more hint - I'll give you the colors. There are five black ones, two silver, two gray, one red, one orange, one green, one white and two two-tones. Isn't that helpful? Of course it is.
Google away, phone a friend, activate that NetFlix membership. I know it's not easy, they never are. But since I don't want you just spinning your wheels, I find this to be of great assistance.
Oh, Just Shut Up and Lie Down Somewhere
