 Duel, by far, is my favorite.  Still holds up.  

Wouldn't Jeepers Creepers get a mention?  It was never more scary than when you didn't see the monster, but his jacked up ride.  And, come on, we can't give some due to Death Proof?

How about "The Cars That Ate Paris"? Had some pretty wild ass cars in that one, and they deliberately killed people!!!

 And, in the original Death Race...they got points for killing people.

I think the entire thread and article lost its way, it's supposed to be about evil vehicles which like I said really only The Car, Christine and MO qualify. All the others the vehicles were a means to an end but not evil.

What about Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, ya FUCKERS!!!

The Car was a great flick. Maximum Overdrive, however was entertaining only on an Ed Wood, holy-crap-this-sucks level. Who wanted the trucks to just tapdance for about ten minutes on Yeardley Smith, in the hopes that would shut her up?

The greatest evil vehicle movie of all  time was not mentioned here. It is, of course:
KILLDOZER!!!

CURTIS!!!!! Yeah Doublec...I have had the same fantasy when watching Maximum Overdrive.

I'm not going to argue about which was driven and which was not, or their motivations. The Wriath should be on this list period. I mean if you're going to include Joy Ride, how much cred can you really have as a "List Maker" authority. These lists suck, and this is why. Either the author is an idiot, or they leave out the most appropriate items intentionally to spark debate, which just undermines their credibility. Either way, they suck.

You know, it says evil VEHICLE, not evil car.  What about HAL in 2001 A Space Odesey?  He was an evil computer brain of a space ship.  Or the Event Horizon.  THAT was a REALLY evil space ship.

@karas1

I agree with you assessment for Event Horizon, however, Hal was not evil. Hal, due to programming that conflicted with what his human handlers back on earth wanted him to do, was asked in effect to lie to the crew about the true nature of the mission. The crew members in hyper sleep aboard the Discovery, pone being revived, where to inform the rest of the crew of the nature of their mission. Hal handled this problem poorly by trying to take the crew out of this equation, and thus continue with the mission on his own. It was a chain of events and lack of foresight that caused this problem...also, reliance on a computer to make the right decisions without human interaction overseeing it. Hence, Hal was not evil.

Well, this car isn't really evil. It's actually GOOD in a dark and creepy way. I speak of course of the Ford Fairlane from an old episode (circa 1960 something) of the Twilight Zone entitled "You Drive." What happens is a man in a hurry to get home from work accidently runs down a child in the car. But then he takes off and denies any knowledge. Until, that is, his car decides it doesen't want the kid's death on it's concience. It begins to pester and torture him through various means, even replaying a news broadcast about the accident on it's radio in attempts to get him to confess. When he repeatedly refuses, It finally starts itself and chases him down the street. He falls into the road, the car stops bare inches away from crushing him, and then it opens it's passenger door. The man finally gives in and GETS in, whereapon his car drives him to the police station to turn himself in
