Despite illusions to the contrary, most of us will never star in a Hollywood movie. But at Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance’s Movie Class, you can get up close and personal with someone who has: a collection of the greatest rides that every graced the silver screen.

Which is just fine by us.

Kicking off on March 12th, the event showcases dream machines from films released between 1964 and 1988.

Here are the top seven due for a cameo.

1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 NART Spyder
The Thomas Crown Affair

On set, the ride was owned by Faye Dunaway’s Vicki Anderson. Off set, the Spyder placed 17th overall in the ‘67 12 Hours of Sebring. And co-star Steve McQueen was so taken by the ride that he ordered one for himself.

1959 Corvette XP-87 Stingray Racer
Clambake

Before Elvis rode alongside it, the Racer took two Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) class championships.

Aston Martin DB5
Goldfinger
The most iconic of all the lots, the DB5 shoots from 0-60 in 8 seconds and tops out at 145 mph. That’s damn impressive for its time. Ejector seat and Bond girl not inlcuded.

1969 Porsche 917K
Le Mans

Steve. McQueen. 'Nuff said.

Woodill Wildfire
Johnny Dark

Fun fact: some of the ‘53 footage of this fiberglass beast was shot during a real live race against Phil Hill at the Santa Barbara Airport.

1958 Chevrolet Impala
American Graffiti

The spirit of reckless youth incarnate.

1949 Buick Roadmaster
Rain Man

But will dad let you drive slow on the driveway?
