Top 10: Classic cars in films and TV, Part one

There's nothing more delightful than seeing a car you love in action, either on the television or in film. We've all found ourselves enjoying a particularly interesting programme or feature only to have our attention stolen by a car - even if it's for a fleeting moment. However, and with your help, we've come up with a list of 10 cars that you adore from film and TV.

This the first of our film and TV cars Top 10, and the good news is that they're not in any way predictable, and all are on the right side of interesting. That's not to say that the Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5 isn't worthy of a list like this, because clearly it is. But it's more a case that you wouldn't thank us for not throwing in a few left-field choices with some of the obvious favourites that you've chosen.

These move/TV car Top 10s are going to run-and-run. Join in with the conversation on our Facebook page.

Life on Mars - Ford Cortina 2000GXL
2006-2007
Other star cars: Rover 3500 and Austin Allegro police cars, and a cast of (very shiny) 1970s cars in just about every street scene!

Life on Mars was a breath of fresh air when it breezed on to out screens in 2006 - the premise of a time-travelling cop, who was actually lying in a coma, solving crimes in 1973 that would have a bearing on his own subsequent life, was brilliant. Nicely researched, very atmospheric (recreating 1973 Manchester in 2006 can't have been easy), and overnight, it made a celebrity of Philip Gleneister's thoroughly amusing Gene Hunt character. As brilliant as its follow-up Ashes to Ashes was dire.
