Clint's Grand Torino from "Grand Torino."

The lambo from "Cannonball Run." Also Jackie Chan's high tech (for 1980 anyway) Subaru.

Also Nick: I'm a little worried about you. I know you like showtunes, but "Greased Lightning?" Seriously dude?

From what I understand, Travolta is hardly an expert on that subject. Just saying.
