Car: The Monster
Movie: Death Race 2000
David Carradine as a pseudo bionic man-slash-race car driver in a movie filled with gratuitous gore, boobs, a subversive plot, and acting that's bad even for 1975 Sylvester Stallone standards? What's not to love? The car is actually a Corvette body on a Volkswagen chassis, with a Corvair engine and transmission, so it's kind of amazing it didn't kill Carradine, when you think about it.
