If you're trying to weather the lousy economy by being fiscally responsible and not splurging on crap that you absolutely do not need, please stop reading now. Because if you like movies, cars, and movie-cars especially, the wall candy offered by MovieCarPosters.com will have you reaching for your wallet before you're halfway through the photo gallery.

These posters are ridiculously cool. Each combines a vehicle silhouette with iconography and color themes pulled from the films and television shows said rides starred in.

In addition to the stuff you'd expect to see, like the BTTF DeLorean, KITT, and the Batmobile (Barris, Furst, Animated, and Tumbler, at that), you'll find killer posters paying tribute to films like Better Off Dead, Big Trouble in Little China, and The Cannonball Run (two varieties), plus TV shows as varied as Arrested Development, Initial D, and Firefly. Gamers, you're represented as well. Even Bronies get some love.

You can browse all the designs in the gallery above. Can't figure any out? Head over to MovieCarPosters.com, where each has a signature quote listed as a hint. (Face it, you'll be going there anyway to place an order.)

What's great is that there's room for so many additions to the series in the future. For example, we're suggesting that Kojak's Buick, Priest's Eldorado from Superfly, and the APC from Aliens all get posterized.

Any suggestions of your own? Sound off in the comments. Likewise, if you place an order, let us know which posters you picked up.

UPDATE: We've discovered that these movie-car posters appear to be more than heavily inspired by original artwork from graphic designer Dean Walton, whose work can be seen and purchased at his Mr. Shabba! Shop. In addition to movie car posters, Walton also created an 'Iconic Racing' and 'Japanese Masters' series.

      This entire idea was straight up stolen from UK artist Dean Walton after someone posted his original stuff on the SA forums. Pretty greasy to just steal a concept for your own profit and not give ANY credit. http://mrshabba.com/post/5742698106/iconic-racing-by-dean-walton

      And they say people who post on the internet are cynical.... These are fantastic. Well done, that made my morning.

        Obviously they're sarcastically too. Even a high school art student would know that these AREN'T well done.

        It's not in Autoblog's gallery, but it is there on the site, along with the Dukes of Hazzard.

      A few suggestions: The Jet Car from Buckaroo Banzai The Hemicuda from Phantasm Turbo Interceptor from the Wraith The Car The Cougar from Dusk til Dawn Sevral people have mentioned it already, but must have a Smokey and the Bandit T/A Green Hornets Chrysler Jim Rockford's Pontiac And if you're gonna do the X-Wings from Star Wars, why not the Vipers from Galactica?

        They could also have a whole subsection for Bond cars!

        Was going to say the Bandit T/A. In Snowman's W-900 also needs a poster. And 2 others I would like to see. The classic Eleanor (1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1) and 1-Baker-11 (1970 Mercury Montego).

      I wonder how well this guy actually knows his films.....I'm not a super-movie-buff but I know Akira was NOT made in 2005..... The graphics are pretty 'meh', looks like picking popular films and tracing over the car in photoshop is a simple but effective way to cash-in :-\

      Sorry in advance, I'm a zombie movie freak... Um what's with the Resident Evil poster? The first movie came out in 2002, the 2nd came out in 2004, then the third in 2007. There's no Resident Evil movie that came out in 2005. And what the hell kind of car is that? A Dodge Magnum? Anyway, I want the Spaceballs one.

        RE4 (the game) came out in 2005. I haven't played it so I can't be sure, but I'm guessing that is where it's from.

      I would so go for the Akira drift cycle, but some people here are wary. I'll give this a few hours.

      These are awesome. Better get them quick because I bet some of them will be pulled for copyright infringement. You can bet the Star Wars posters will.

      While really coming off as a paid advertisement I would love to see one more : the Landmaster from Damnation Alley, even that Ark II vehicle would have been cool.
