Help/FAQ

About the site itself

What is the purpose of this site?
This site can be used to find in which movie a particular car is visible, or to have more info about some cars visible in a particular movie. You will also find lots of pictures of these cars, taken directly from the movies.
Do you sell movies? Do you sell vehicles? Can I download a movie from your site?
No. As said above this site is only for information purpose, we do not sell anything, and do not distribute any movie.
How much movies/cars are listed? What is the most common make?
You can find all these info on the Statistics page.
Who made this site? How can I help you?
The content of the site is the result of the cooperative work of several people that like cars and movies, especially when the two are mixed together. There are some administators, of course, but anybody can contribute to the site by sending new pictures, complete missing info, add comments about cars or movies or help us to recognize unidentified vehicles. See the "Contact" chapter above for more information on sending info or picture.
Is the site complete? Why don't you list this movie? Why is this vehicle missing?
This kind of site will never be complete. There are so many movies that we cannot list all of them. We try to include as much information as possible, but we cannot put all existing info, and we also have to put some limits on what we include in the site (e.g. we cannot list all background cars of each movie).
I found an error/misnamed vehicle. I want to add a missing vehicle. I want to send you a new picture for a vehicle. How I can do that?
To add info or correct existing info, you can directly post in the comments on the movie and vehicle pages. For that you must create an account and then login. If you want to send us new pictures, see the Contact section above.
Why can't I directly correct the info on the site or add pictures? What shall I do to become administrator?
To prevent problems only few people are allowed to edit the data of the site. The administrators are the most active and reliable members, usually those that sent lots of pictures or that were able to identify quickly lots of cars. So after some time you may be prompted to become an administrator if you are in one of those cases.
I found an image stolen from another site
That may happen. In some cases, it may be a site that uses an image that comes from IMCDb (since we often have such requests). Sometimes webmasters of similar sites provide us pictures from their site. There may also be pictures that were sent by users that did not say where they found these pictures. Anyway, in such case it may be better to put a link to the original site of the picture. If you see a picture from your site and want it to be removed, contact us (thought these pictures only belong to those that have the rights on the movie).

Movies

How can I find a movie on the site?
Use the title search box located in the top right corner of each page. You can also use the search page or the movie list page.
I cannot find a particular movie
Try to enter only a part of the title (e.g. one word, or the title without the "The"), in some cases the title can be written either with a dash ("-") or a space. You may also use the "similar to" option rather than "contains", on the search page. If you still cannot find the movie, it may simply mean that it is not yet listed on the site.

Vehicles

I saw car Y in movie Z, why is it not included?
Maybe because only few cars for a movie were listed (i.e. nobody watched the movie completely to list important cars), maybe we missed it, or maybe it was not estimated important enough. For example, a Citroën DS in a 1960/1970 French movie is not especially interesting if visible in the background since they are visible in nearly all French movies of these years.
I searched for Mini but I could find only new ones
Most of them are listed under the Austin make, some under Morris or Rover. For such vehicle you can do a search on "Mini" as model and leave the "Make" field empty.
What are these numbers/letters between "[...]" in the model names?
For some makes, we use the official contructor type number since the model name is not always possible to guess, and not always useful. This is especially the case for the Mercedes and BMW, but we also extended it to other makes/models like Jaguar XJ, Volkswagen (mostly for Beetles and Busses), Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche, Lotus, Rover, VAZ-Lada, ...
Why is this Renault 5 listed as a Renault LeCar? Why some Dodge Viper are listed as Chrysler Viper?
We tried to keep the same convention for all cars: we use the name that the car had in the country where the movie is supposed to take place. So in a US movie the Renault 5 is called LeCar, and in a French movie the pre-2004 Viper models are Chrysler, for example.
What are exactly these stars? Why only 2 stars for this car that is used by a character?
  • 1 star: vehicle that has no interaction the story, character or one of the other vehicle. Some may be visible less than one second, some may be visible for a long time.
  • 2 stars: a short action, or a minor action, like a crash or a taxi that leaves one of the character. For cars used by a character only in a short sequence we also sometime use this rating, since the car is not visible for a long time in the movie.
  • 3 to 5 stars: this depends of the importance of the vehicle in the movie, the time that it is seen on the screen and the importance of the character that uses it. It is quite difficult to explain but usually when the car has at least three stars it means that is seen for at least a few minutes in the movie.
What kind of vehicles are listed?
At first we were only listing cars, but we quickly added bikes, trucks and busses. Recently the site was extended to special vehicles like farming vehicles, earthmoving equipment and warehouse/airport vehicles. We won't include trains, trams, planes, boats or non-motorized vehicles.
How are selected the years of the vehicles?
For lots of US cars it is quite easy: some details allow to find the exact years. But for other cars it is impossible, so we put the year when the car model was released. For some vehicle the date may be wrong, or we may have missed a detail that allows a more precise identification of the year. In that case, do not hesitate to notify this (see above in the "I found an error/misnamed vehicle" section).

Guidelines for pictures published on the site

Note: in the following, "Post" means to publish or put a picture (or comment) on the site.

Guidelines for posting pictures as new vehicle page for a movie

Additional guidelines for background vehicles (note that these apply only to 1-star vehicles)

Note: these guidelines may be relaxed if the picture is large and sharp or a background car is rare or interesting for some other reason. The contributor should post a comment with the reason for posting the picture if the above guidelines are relaxed for a background car.

Examples of "rare" may include:

  1. Only a few were made,
  2. Seldom seen in movies,
  3. Is not common in the country of origin for the movie,
  4. Is old relative to the time frame of the movie.

Examples of "interesting" may include:

  1. Special edition of an otherwise common vehicle,
  2. Customized cars,
  3. Unique history of a particular car,
  4. Little known facts are available concerning a specific vehicle,
  5. Is an anachronism (car newer than the time frame of the movie).

Deletion of posted content:

For pictures that are outside these guidelines, users should suggest that they be deleted. Suggestions may be made in the comments section on the IMCDB site or in a topic on the forum. The decision to delete a picture will be made by Antp (chief admin) or by the person who posted it.
