Mount Rushmore: TV Cars

For this installment of my periodic series in which I select who/what I think are the 4 ultimate in a given category, I'm focusing on automobiles of the small screen.

1. The Batmobile (Batman, 1966-1968)

2. The General Lee (The Dukes of Hazzard, 1979-1985)- Although I'm not crazy about the Confederate flag on the roof, there's no denying that this is an iconic car.

3. The Ford Gran Torino (Starsky & Hutch, 1975-1979)

4. K.I.T.T. (Knight Rider, 1982-1986)

Which TV cars would make your Mount Rushmore?

Good list, as usual Malcolm, but I'd have to go with:
1. Batmobile
2. Munstermobile
3. Flintstonemobile
4. Speed Racer's Mach 5

Runner up: Monkeemobile

Ok, not really TV but since the movies are so old now they're only on TV and VCR, lol . . . how about James Bond's Aston Martin DB5?

Or how about The Saint - Simon Templar's (Roger Moore edition) 1962 Volvo P1800?

Or the Partridge Family Bus???

Or the Ferrari Magnum always stole from Robin underneath the nose of Higgins?

And then there's that Model T from the Beverly Hillbillies with Granny rockin' on the roof, lol.

Hmmm there are a lot of awesome cars in movies I would choose, but if we are going with TV cars then:

1. the black car from Knight Rider
2. the car from Green Hornet
3. Batmobile
4. the car from Miami Vice, I think it's a Ferrari

(I clearly don't know makes of cars...)

I agree with the Batmobile for sure. I would put the Monkee Mobile on my Rushmore, Dragula from the Munsters and, being an 80s girl, Magnum's Ferrari.

Jamie: You made some very good choices. Props for including a couple of cartoon cars in the mix.

Pop Art Diva: The Partridge's psychedelic bus is hard to deny.

Sarah: Yup, Sonny Crockett drove a Ferrari. By the way, I'm terrible at identifying makes of cars.

Bridget: The Monkeemobile almost made my Mount Rushmore. Good pull on the Munsters' car by the way.
