The first car this blog is going to address is the 1972 Ford Torino which featured in the film ‘Gran T0rino’. This film offers a stunning performance by Clint Eastwood and is considered by some to be one of his best for years.

Next up is the iconic film ‘Bullitt’. Steve McQueen played the main character in this role and become a hero to thousands of people over night. Speeding around the streets of San Francisco in what only can be described as an awesome muscle car. McQueen ensured that the lime light was firmly fixed on this beast of a machine. The car featured is of course the timeless 1968 Ford Mustang GT390 Fastback. The film saw the car pushed through its paces through a series of tight corners, challenges of handling in fast and furious action sequences that set the bench mark for car action sequences to come.
This article would not be complete with out a look at the 1976 Ford Torino that features in the remake of the cult figures Starsky and Hutch. This remake saw Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson each take a roles of the two main characters to bring the 70s classic television series up to date.
