Survey: Movie and TV cars auto enthusiasts love the most

FYI: 2 Mustangs and a Torino in the top 10...

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - General Lee from the 1970s TV show the "Dukes of
Hazzard" was the number one choice as most popular TV or movie car in a
recent survey.
Hagerty Insurance, which insures collectible automobiles, motorcycles and
boats, sent e-mails to about 50,000 people in its database of automobile
collectors and enthusiasts, inviting them to participate in the on-line
survey. E-mail recipients were also invited to pass the invitation on to
friends. The company collected about 10,000 responses.

Classic muscle cars were the big winners. The orange 1969 Dodge Charger
driven by the Duke boys was the number one pick. The 1968 Ford Mustang
driven by Steve McQueen in the movie, "Bullitt," came in second. The 1967
Shelby GT500 nicknamed "Eleanor" in the 2000 version of the picture, "Gone
in 60 Seconds," came in third.

"We thought the top choice would be the Batmobile, or maybe Tom Selleck's
Ferrari from Magnum P.I.," says McKeel Hagerty, president of Hagerty
Insurance. "We were surprised when the results were tallied and it turned
out that 'General Lee' from The Dukes of Hazzard was the overall winner."

The red 1974 Ford Torino driven in the TV show and, recently, the movie
"Starsky & Hutch" was the ninth most popular car.


1.. Dukes of Hazzard's General Lee -- from the 1970s TV show

2.. Bullitt's dark green 1968 Mustang driven by Steve McQueen

3.. Gone in 60 Seconds' Eleanor - the 1967 Shelby GT500

4.. Back to the Future's flux capacitor-equipped 1983 DeLorean

5.. Batman's Batmobile from the TV series starring Adam West

6.. Goldfinger's Aston Martin DB5 driven by James Bond

7.. Smokey & The Bandit's 1977 Pontiac Firebird T/A driven by Burt
Reynolds

8.. Herbie the Love Bug, the 1963 Volkswagen from the Disney movie

9.. Starsky & Hutch's 1974 Ford Torino driven in the original TV show

Yet another $.02 worth from a proud owner of a 1970 Mach 1 351C @

Which was a 1966 Imperial Crown 4dr that had been modified to "James
Bond" standards. Every gizmo on that car actually worked as there
were no Digital Special Effects in the `60's.

Another $.02 worth from somebody with to much useless trivia in their
head.
