Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

"Back to the future" wasn't a television show. But good choice.

Still haven't gotten around to seeing that movie. Heck, it's what I'm known for on a podcast I host haha.

Sorry, you're all wrong. It's SUPERCAR from the Gerry Anderson series of the same name. And remember, this is a television question, not a movie one.

KITT from Knight Rider (the original series).

The other vehicles are great choices, but that is all they are: vehicles. No matter how many bells and whistles they have they are just vehicles.

KITT, on the other hand, is an artificial intelligence with the ability to operate the car in which the AI resides. It is the only automobile on the list that can actively come to your aide when you need it.

I don't think people are remembering the original Batmobile. It was terrible.

KITT is the clear winner.

I'd have to go with Optimus Prime from Transformers, I suppose technically it's a robot in automobile form, but I'm still going to count it.

Since we're all in the Way back Machine. How about the dune buggy from The Banana Splits? It wasn't anything fancy but it was cute.

KITT loses points for being the principal in Boy Meets World. The Batmobile is not only awesome, but it also doesn't go very fast, making it extremely safe.

I also would have voted for Magnum, PI's car. Or Knight Boat. For fjords.

Was just going to mention that!

Also they said "CAR" not van, and the mystery machine, and the van from A-team, are both vans.


But, if I had to choose, I'd go with the Toyota Trueno from Initial D.
