  1. Jurassic Jeep

With their sand beige and radiant fire color scheme and Jurassic Park decal, the Jeeps used to get around Jurassic Park were none other than the 1992 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Edition – a 4.0L manual off-road. It was only in this year and edition that the Jeep YJ series had both the roll cage and green interior reminiscent of the Jurassic Jeep.

 

  • General Lee

 

The 1969 Dodge Charger is probably the first thing that comes to mind when one hears The Dukes of Hazzard. Actors come and go but this car is basically synonymous with the title. Named after American Civil War Confederate General Robert E. Lee, this iconic orange Charger sports a unique push bar and a signature horn any fan would instantly recognize.

 

  • Mystery Machine

 

The Mystery Inc., their snacks, and their one-of-a-kind van – the Mystery Machine – will forever be etched in the minds of millions. No one seems to know for sure what make and model this car is (mystery indeed), but enthusiasts can tell you it’s a 1960’s American van. Avid fans have deduced that it’s likely not rear-engined, and therefore inspired by Ford Econolines, Dodge A100s, and Chevrolet Sportvans of the time.

  1. Black Beauty

The car driven by the Green Hornet’s chauffeur was a 1966 Imperial Crown hardtop complete with explosive charges, gas nozzles, and anti-riot spikes, among other things. The Black Beauty lived up to its name with a ridiculously expensive paint job requiring 30 coats of “pure black green pearl of essence lacquer”.

  • Optimus Prime

 

Both a car and hero, Optimus Prime is sometimes a brilliant 30 foot tall robot leader and, at other times, a truck. While his vehicular form changes occasionally, he’s best known as something similar to a 1992 Peterbilt 379 truck. Optimus Prime is another recreated fan favorite alongside other entries in this list.
