There have been many famous cars featured in movies and television shows over the years. In some cases, the cars are as famous as the people who drove them on both the big and small screen. Mention a particular movie or TV program and people instantly think of the car in it. And no matter what a person’s age is, most of us are familiar with the most iconic cars in film and television history. Here’s a list of 12 of the most unforgettable on-screen vehicles.
12. The Mutt Cutts Van – Dumb and Dumber
It’s not the most famous vehicle of all time, but nobody who has seen the 1994 movie Dumb and Dumber can forget the infamous shag-covered mutt cuts van that actors Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels drive from Rhode Island to Colorado. Made out in the image of a dog, the van is hilarious to look at and exemplifies the stupidity of the two lead characters. In real life, the van used in the movie was a 1984 Ford Econoline van that was painstakingly customized to give it the shaggy dog appearance. Seeing Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels race across America in that van is unforgettable. Sadly, the van was abandoned halfway through the film so that the two main characters could drive an equally funny vehicle—a tiny moped scooter.
