Empire’s Favorite “Famous” Cars

Here at EmpireCovers.com, we know cars. During our visit to the Media Car Show, we saw a few cars that looked extremely familiar.  After some research, we realized that a few of the cars were used on popular TV shows and in movies. That got us to thinking to well known cars in Hollywood, so we compiled a list of our favorites:

EmpireCovers.com Favorite #3: Chevrolet Impala

The Chevrolet Impala is a long time favorite of Hollywood. Featured in shows and films such as Drive (2011), Cars (2006 ), Big (1988) and recently, The Killing (2011), the famous Chevy Impala has shared the screen with actors and actresses for decades.

Our favorite Chevrolet Impala is the 1967 Chevy Impala featured in the CW’s spooky series, Supernatural (2005). Starring Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, the series centers around two brothers who are always on the road in search of demons, monsters, and other unworldly beings. Nicknamed Metallicar by fans, the show’s classic Chevy is in nearly all the episodes.

Featured in films and television shows such as Woody Allen’s Sleeper (1973), the CW’s One Tree Hill (2003), Road to Redemption (2001), USA Network’s Psych (2006) and Cars (2006). Of course, our favorite is the 1963 Volkswagen Bug used in the infamous Love Bug films from Disney. “Herbie” the creamy white VW Bug starred as a free-thinking race car that featured a sunroof, racing stripes, as well as a characteristically sunny demeanor.

EmpireCovers.com Favorite #1:  Chevrolet Camaro

The Classic Chevy Camaro

Another Chevrolet favorite is the Camaro, a sporty automobile with a sleek exterior. The Camaro has been featured in films such as Remember the Titans (2000), A Walk to Remember (2002), Christine (1983), 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003), and television shows like The Vampire Diaries (2009), Overhaulin (2004) and Monster Garage (2002). A long time consumer favorite, Camaros are infamous for being the ultimate American sports car.

Our favorite Chevy Camaro is the unrefined 1977 yellow Camaro used in Transformers (2007) to portray the protective and mysterious Autobot “Bumblebee”. In Transformers, Autobot Bumblebee takes the form of an old, beat up Camaro to befriend human Sam and his love interest, Mikaela. Eventually, Bumblebee transforms into a different year of Camaro, the newer and sleeker 2009 Chevy Camaro. The model used in the film was a concept, as the car had not been officially released by Chevrolet.
