What car should they use for the Christine remake?

Will be set again in the early 80s.  So the car will have to be early 80s or before.

"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

K Car - after all it saved Chrysler. After the bulldozers attack there should be enough parts to rebuild it.

Plymouth Horizon, a car was so frightening the film won’t even need a coherent screenplay.

Easy peasy, the sinister Russian Lada in red of course

Only change I suggest is renaming the film from Christine to Кристин
(Kristin)

spokoynoy nochi !

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs.It's jolted by every pebble on the road

K car. Lol.  A "Special K" car.  "The 'cereal' killer car."  That could be the billing.

1. The Most Evil Car in America
A 1964 Dodge 330 came to be known as "the most evil car in America" after it allegedly killed more than a dozen people. The car was first purchased by a police unit. During the car's career as a police vehicle, three officers drove it. Each officer who drove the car ended up committing murder-suicides, where they first murdered their families, then killed themselves. The eery similarities made people wonder if the car was possessing its drivers.

The car's next owner, Wendy Allen, had a similarly spooky experience with the vehicle. When Wendy drove on the highway, the car would open its doors without anyone touching them and jam its steering wheel, placing passengers in harm's way.

When members of a local church heard about the car's reputation, they went out and vandalized the car to attempt to stop it from being used. The story goes that many of those who vandalized the car ended up decapitated by an 18-wheeler truck, with one member struck by lightning.

In 2007, a child who supposedly touched the car went on to kill his entire family much in the same way as the three police officers. After this tragedy, local church members stole the car and chopped it up into small pieces, sending the pieces to multiple junkyards to ensure it was never reassembled. As far as we know, the car hasn't come back.

Back in the '80s, Dan Aykroyd told me that he wanted to do a horror car movie called "Killer Amphicars."   

True!
