People that are interested in Chrysler dealership Indianapolis are likely intrigued by the iconic role that cars made by the Chrysler corporation have had in cinema. In this article, we will go over some of the most famous scenes that have featured these vehicles.

Fast and the Furious

In this movie, the plot revolves around people who race cars underground, and one of the main characters, Dom, played by Vin Diesel, is known for his skills at racing. Amid a rash of crimes in the city, an undercover cop, Brian, is sent in to investigate the garage run by Dom, and in the process, the two become friends. 

While most of the cars featured in the movie are modified tuner cars, Dom drives a black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. As the movie builds to a climax, Dom challenges Brian to a race to the train tracks before an oncoming train is scheduled to pass through. Brian in his Toyota Supra and Dom in his Dodge Charger both outrun the train by a fraction of a second. Still, Dom crashes into a truck, flipping over numerous times and utterly destroys his car in this epic scene.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Two travelers, played by Steve Martin and John Candy, are driving a Chrysler LeBaron rental car, and they end up driving the wrong way down a freeway. They drive between two oncoming tractor trailers, and in the process, the doors blow off the car. The car is set on fire in a later scene, and they continue to drive the charred remains down the highway for comic effect.

Tommy Boy

People interested in Chrysler dealership Indianapolis have likely seen the beautiful 1967 Plymouth Belvedere GTX convertible that is owned by David Spade’s character in the movie Tommy Boy. In the movie, he plays a salesman whose job it is to go on a road trip with his company owner’s son, played by Chris Farley. Through their misadventures, the door is torn off the driver side of the car, and the crew drives on without replacing it.

Later on, they stow a deer in the backseat, thinking it had died, only for it to wake up and wreak havoc on the car. It busts through the convertible top, crashes through both driver and passenger side windows, and it destroys the windshield. As the movie goes on, Spade and Farley’s characters add tarp over the roof and cardboard over the missing door but continue drive the car.

Burn Notice

In this television series, Michael Westen, played by Jeffrey Donovan, is an intelligence agent who has been let go for mysterious reasons. Trapped in Miami with no assets, he takes whatever work he can helping people in tight situations with his skills in espionage. Throughout the show, he is seen driving a black 1973 Dodge Charger through explosions, fast getaways, and other dangerous situations.
