Film Vs TV: Little Classics Top Screen Cars

Film Classic Cars Vanishing Point

When it comes to our favourite classic cars, what we see on TV and in films when growing up sets the scene. So with the upcoming Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show at the NEC this November being all about on-screen vehicles, we couldn’t resist putting together our top ten TV and top ten film cars.

We know everyone has a different top ten, so tell us what you think we got right and wrong on Facebook or Twitter.
