    3. My Mother The Car
    5. Batmobile
    6. City On The Edge Of Forever
    8. Lotus 7 from The Prisoner
    9. The Mean Machine from Wacky Races
    10. Speed Racer
    11. The Mystery Machine
    12. UFO
    13. Bessie from Doctor Who
    15. Dukes of Hazzard
    16. The A-Team
    17. Knight Rider
    18. Automan
    19. The Real Ghostbusters
    23. Supernatural


    1. Hi Dave,

      Fantastic!! You did an amazing job on these cult-tv automobile identifications. The only one that was wrong was #6!


  2. I'll try and fill in the blanks where I can:
    2. The Munsters
    4. FAB1 from The Thunderbirds
    6. Star Trek: A Piece Of The Action
    7. The Black Beauty from The Green Hornet
    14. Wonderbug

    1. Hi Pierre,

      Great job knocking five more identifications off the list. Well done!

      The only outstanding ones are #1, #20, #21, and #22.

  3. 21. Millennium, Nostalgia.

  4. #20 looks like Mr. Bean's car.

    Is 22 Silence of the Lambs?

  6. Hi everyone, great ids!

    Randal: Yep, #21 is from Millennium, "Nostalgia." Frank Black's ride!

    Jaime: Awesome! That is Mr. Bean's Mini, indeed! Well done!

    And Tony, number 22 is not from Silence of the Lambs (remember the category - cult tv -) but I totally can see why you thought that! :)


  7. 22 Jonathan Kent's truck from Smallville.

    1. Hi Howard!

      Brilliant guess, but in this case, incorrect. The pick-up truck pictured in #22 is from Star Trek Voyager, and the episode called "The 37s." It sure as heck does look like Jonathan Kent's truck, however...
