Blog 4 Dat’s Top Ten TV Cars of All-Time, #’s 5-1
Well, we are back here at Blog 4 Dat with Week 2 of the Top Ten TV Cars of All-Time, finishing the countdown with the top 5. And why waste any time? Here we go:
The A-Team Van from The A-Team
The A-Team was an action show that ran from 1983 to 1987 and featured a group of ex-Special Forces personnel that took care of business their own way. And when H.M. Murdock, Hannibal Smith, Faceman Peck, and B.A. Baracus needed to travel, it was either by helicopter or their 1983 GMC Van. The van became the signal that the A-Team was on the way and is probably the second best remembered thing from the show next to Mr. T.

The Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo
Whenever there was trouble, Shaggy, Fred, Velma, Daphne, and Scooby Doo hoped in the Mystery Machine and headed out to solve the mystery. This van has become an icon from the show and was also spoofed in the movie Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Whether that movie was realistic or not, we will never know but one thing is for sure: when those kids and that dog get in the van, the bad guys are sure to be busted.

General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard
People will remember the Dukes of Hazzard for many things. Moonshine. Daisy Duke. Bo and Luke. Boss Hogg. Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. But perhaps the most memorable thing about the long running TV show is the car, the General Lee. The orange 1969 Dodge Charger with the Confederate Flag painted on its top has become as iconic as the show itself. The car that made so many moonshine runs will never be forgotten in the annals of TV history.

KITT from Knight Rider
The American TV series Knight Rider ran in the 1980’s. The car, KITT, kept going even longer with movies later on and a new TV series in 2008. However, none were more popular than the original. David Hasselhoff, in all his glory, starred as an agent for FLAG. And his car was KITT, the Knight Industries Two Thousand. KITT was a customized, artificially intelligent Pontiac Trans-Am. And if it were not for Hasselhoff’s pure machismo, KITT would probably be the only thing Knight Rider is remembered for. But sorry, you can’t forget about the Hoff, no matter how hard you try.

and now for your number one TV car of all-time. . .
The Batmobile from Batman
That’s right. The 1960’s Batman series featured the first, great Batmobile for everyone to want to own. As a youngster, I wanted nothing more than to have the Batmobile when I grew up. There have been many incarnations of the Batmobile through time (in films, television, comics, cartoons, video games), but the one that Adam West drove with Burt Ward riding shotgun is the best. The Batmobile was a classic car with some of the coolest features needed by a superhero of Batman’s stature. The car that was created for the 1960’s series is still as popular today as it was then. In January 2013, the original Batmobile sold for over $4 million in an auction. That proves its spot here at #1.
