Summer is slowly sneaking up on us (if you’ll believe it!) and nothing reminds me more of summer than rich kids in cool cars from some of the most iconic teen movies of all time.
Those summer babies are always driving in cars with boys, like our beloved Cher and Dionne, who unknowingly make their way onto the freeway while learning how to manoeuvre boyfriend Murray’s car. What a nice boyfriend. (Though he might want to invest in car insurance for women before he lets her drive again…)
You’ll also remember Ferris Bueller’s infamous Day Off. The principle knew he was skipping and tried everything to prove it. Lucky for our entertainment pleasure, Ferris was always one step ahead of The Man. Borrowing best friend Cam’s dad’s really expensive and prized red Ferrari, they team up up with love interest Sloane head off for a day of stress-free fun. (Until the epic moment where the Ferrari crashes through a third-storey window).
The reason we can all sing along to Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen is largely thanks to the offbeat teen comedy, Wayne’s World. This epic teen car scene starts the movie off with a laugh and sets the tone for the rest of the film. Plus, the flames on the side of the Mirth Mobile were awesome.
Nearly every iconic teen movie features an equally iconic car in some way or another. We’ve scoured through our favourites and have come up with our top ten teen movie car moments. We put them together in a playlist just for you!
