I know some would like a summary of this movie, so here it is. WARNING!!!!SPOILERS!!!!

James "Rennie" Cray (Jim Caveziel), witnesses his wife get run over by merciless serial killer Fargo (Colm Feore), who takes her necklace as a souvenir. Cray gives chase and eventually crashes his Mercedes into Fargo's Cadillac Brougham when he swerves to avoid a bus and spins out. Fargo spends 18 months in hospital with serious injuries such as paraplegia, the loss of an eye and the loss of his right arm, and Cray is sent to jail for 3 years.
Following his release, Cray crisscrosses America in his '68 Barracuda, in pursuit of the now wheelchair bound Fargo who now owns a '72 El Dorado in pepper green, with only one working headlight as they are "like his eyes". He has used a series of mechanical innovations to enable him to commit his murders without ever leaving his car.
Fargo picks his next victim, Molly Poole (Rhona Mitra), who survived a car crash that killed both of her parents and made her scared of cars. Fargo sets up an elaborate trap in a tunnel, kills her best friend, and takes her picture. Cray arrives at the scene, finds evidence that it was Fargo's doing and talks to Molly following her hospital stay and therapy sessions. He warns her that only he can protect her, and that Fargo will kill her. She goes to her choir meeting and accepts a ride home from a friend. Fargo flips the SAAB she is travelling in and proceeds to drag it at high speed using a towing jib mounted in his trunk. Cray swoops in and rescues her, losing his car door in the process. As Cray repairs the car at his base (an old scrapyard), they each reveal more about themselves to each other, such as the reason why Cray is hunting Fargo, and Molly's fear of cars.
Cray and Molly take a drive. Partway through, Cray kills the 'Cuda's engine and lights, listening out for the distinctive sound of Fargo's car (the fan belt squeals). When he hears it, he restarts his car and a chase ensues, ending at Cray's base, where he tricks Fargo into ramming a headlight mounted on a stack of old cars. As Cray checks on the crash, he is knocked out by Fargo, who kidnaps Molly. Lethargic, unarmed Traffic investigator Will Macklin (Frankie Faison), who has never fired a weapon in the line of duty, finds Cray and teams up with him to find Fargo.
Fargo takes Molly to the motel where he killed Cray's wife, and he now owns. He shows her a lot of old Cadillacs that he clearly chops for parts, and his original, wrecked car. He drugs Molly and dresses her up in the same outfit Cray's wife wore when she was killed, right down to the necklace he retrieved years ago. As Cray arrives, he runs into one of the rooms and runs back out to see Fargo taunting him, driving forwards slowly with Molly in front of the car. Before he can run her over, though, Macklin flies in in Cray's Barracuda and knocks the Caddy out of the way. Cray and Fargo face off in front of the motel, resulting in a 10 paces-style duel, ending with Fargo flipping Cray's car onto its side. Fargo gets out to taunt Cray, but while he does, Molly sneaks into his car. As Fargo surveys the wreck, one of the tyres deflates, dropping the 'Cuda back onto all fours. Fargo attempts to retreat to his car, but Molly slams it in reverse, dragging Fargo along with it. Cray, fuelled with nothing but pure vengeance, crashes into Fargo and while he is clinging onto the front of Cray's car, smashes him into the old Brougham he used to drive, mortally wounding him.
After the cavalry arrives, and Cray and Molly have a heartwarming reunion, Macklin, who has inexplicably acquired a shotgun, delivers the final coup de grace to Fargo's mutilated, mortally wounded body.

Because it was added at the time we were only listing main vehicles - most of what you added are just background vehicles
