31. 1973 Chevrolet Malibu
> Film: Drive (2011)
> Genre: Crime, drama
> Starring: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan

The slick, stylish, neo-noir film “Drive” is about a movie stunt driver (Ryan Gosling) who moonlights as a getaway driver. He tries to put his life of crime behind him when he falls in love with a woman.

Though there are a number of impressive cars featured in the film, the main vehicle is a 1973 Chevy Malibu. Gosling himself selected the car from a Los Angeles junkyard, according to director Nicholas Winding Refn. The car is understated, but powerful — much like Gosling’s character in the film.

The film “Ford v Ferrari” tells the true story of how legendary car designer Carroll Shelby and driver Ken Miles were tapped by Ford executives to build a superior race car and unseat Ferrari as the dominant car brand at the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race.

The film won two Oscars (sound editing and film editing) and received rave reviews — with 92% of critics and 98% of moviegoers giving “Ford v Ferrari” positive marks, according to Rotten Tomatoes.
