7 Famous Cars of the Silver Screen

1964 Buick Riviera: Road House

The second car on our list also didn’t have a major role, but did play a big part in the movie Road House. Everyone remembers the Big Foot Monster Truck or the Mercedes-Benz SL that Patrick Swayze sacrifices when all hell breaks loose, but nobody remembers that the other car he uses to go back and forth to the bar was a 1964 Buick Riviera.

Although the car is beaten up by disgruntled bar patrons who don’t like change, the car got its close up when Swayze’s character asks if the headlights work when he buys it.
