Prom is only a few weeks away for most American teenagers, which means high school juniors and seniors are prepping for what many feel are the most important night of their young lives. At our advanced age, we could really care less about proms, but we have a soft spot for the the transportation that ferries gussied up young un's to and from this teenage right of passage. Some choose to travel in the lap of luxury, some appreciate form over function (read: big back seat), while others look to one-up their friends. We pored over the many vehicles available to America's teens and compiled our own list of Top 10 Prom Rides. Click either image to begin and have fun... but not too much fun.

      Back in the 80s one of my friends took his date to prom in his Fiat Spyder. Of course her dress was one of these 6-hoop numbers that for some reason (God know why) were actually popular back then. It was entertaining watching her try to get in/out of that car.

        When I took a chick to prom, I borrowed my mom's Mercury Cougar XR7


        and I still got into those panties.

        Our group rented one of those party buses. I was straight saucy and also had a good ending to prom night (ever guy should).

      I combo'd a couple of the cars for my prom:

      1953 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn (with a chauffeur...) Shame my date wasn't really worth it.

      I went in a red '76 Corvette. Pretty much trumps this whole list. Only one on this list I'd want to take is the Harley, to be completely honest.
        • 5 Years Ago
        That one or the Hummer, but I feel with the Harley there's a high chance that a prom dress might catch on fire.

      What about an old Eldorado convertible?

        I like the way Smegley thinks.
        • 5 Years Ago
        For the price of a limo, tux, and dinner you could get 5 good hookers, have that happy end guaranteed, and not have to put up with the BS.
        • 5 Years Ago
        You must have had all the chicks in high school.

      If you see a conversion van outside of a school it's not a good sign.
        • 5 Years Ago
        It's better than a panel van.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Free Candy?
        • 5 Years Ago
        I actually have a Conversion van... when I was in HS for my senior year I was sooooooo close to getting the van that night but my parents wouldn't allow it. So I settled for my Mercury Sable.... it still had plenty of rear seat room. ;)

      In the supercar category, I would rather drive a McLaren F1 to prom over the Reventon. Why? Enough seats to take 2 dates!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Prom was last Saturday for me. We got a limo (Town Car).

      This is a really great top ten list, the helicopter is the best hands down, also probably the most expensive. You can post this to our site http://www.toptentopten.com/ and then link back to your site. We are looking for top ten lists and our users can track back to your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
