The pigs sing "I Get Around".

Motorcycles are occasionally seen as transportation in Muppet productions.

Droop wins Miss Mousey's heart by picking her up on his motorcycle in "Froggy Went A Courtin'" on The Muppets Valentine Show.

"I Get Around", the opening number for Episode 415 of The Muppet Show, featured Miss Piggy, Link Hogthrob and other Muppet pigs riding motorcycles. The producers insisted on using real operational motorcycles for the scene, and they had to order Muppet-sized motorcycles from Pittsburgh to be flown to the studios in London. Once the motorcycles arrived, the producers learned that they couldn't run the bikes; safety regulations wouldn't allow gas vehicles to run inside the studio. The special effects department fit two electric drills to each bike wheel, to make it look as if the bikes were running.[1]

Miss Piggy rides a motorcycle again in The Great Muppet Caper. After taking over a truck that runs out of gas and finding herself stranded, the back of a truck opensand a motorcycle sails out. Miss Piggy rides the chopper to the Mallory Gallery, jump-crashing through a window.

Gonzo rides a motorcycle as part of his act in The Muppet Show episode 315. His act involves riding a motorcycle up a ramp and into Statler and Waldorf's box. After failing the first time, Gonzo tries to get it working throughout the show (at one point getting the take-off perfected while the landing still needs work), and eventually performs his act to great success later in the show.

Cookie Monster also rides a motorcycle, according to the audio sketch "The Listening Game" from the album Havin' Fun with Ernie & Bert.

Up to date as of February 09, 2010

From Grand Theft Wiki

NRG-900 from GTA IV

Motorcycles are two-wheeled motor vehicle that have appeared in all Grand Theft Auto games except Grand Theft Auto 2 and Grand Theft Auto III. Other names and types associated to motorcycles in GTA include motorbicycle, motorbike, bike, crotch rocket, moped, and chopper. Motorcycles are smaller than most vehicles in the game. It can fit through traffic and alleyways more easily than larger vehicles. Since Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the player can shoot forward while on any motorcycle. The downside of riding motorcycles is that the player can fall off it if the player collides with enough force.

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the player can increase the Bike Skill of Carl Johnson, either through long rides on motorcycles or lessons in the Bike School. The higher the skill, the less chance Carl will fall off the motorcycle and the more responsive the motorcycle is.

Contents

Advantages

There are many advantages about motorcycles these are:

  • They are fast and more controllable than cars.
  • They fit on narrow spaces and can zip through alleyways.
  • They're good in drive-by as the motorcycle can shoot forwards.
  • Motorcycles are effiecient when it comes with speed and handling.
  • Easier to steal.
  • Excellent for stunting.

Disadvantages

There are also many disadvantages in motorcycle most likely:

  • You'll fall off if you hit something with sufficient force. Furthermore, you will usually be launched off the bike, taking large amounts of damage upon impact.
  • Likely prone to be shot as you have no protection at the side and the back.
  • Easily get busted especially with slow motorcycles.
  • May easily uncontrollable in grass or dirt(especially when it rains) except for off-road motorcycles.

Ana Lucia

Main article: Automobiles/Ana Lucia
Ana Lucia and Christian Shephard's Australian rental car, a Ford Taurus ("Two for the Road")
Ana Lucia and Big Mike's Ford Crown Victoria squad car for the LAPD ("Collision"). Note the lack of collision guards on the front bumper. The plates on the other vehicles are barely identifiable as Hawaii plates

Automobiles used by Ana Lucia

  • 2000–2007 Ford Taurus (rental)
    • Episodes: "Two for the Road"
    • License plate: WIH-647 (Australia)
    • Color: Grey
    • Background: Note this is a US left-drive vehicle, but the entire scene has been flipped horizontally to depict an Australian right-drive vehicle. This vehicle is a fourth generation Taurus, and the updated front and rear fascia reveal it to be of 2004-2007 vintage. The Taurus isn't sold in Australia, however, the Ford Australia sister to the Taurus model is called Falcon. In fact the original Taurus model was a reskinned Falcon.

Automobiles used by Bernard

  • 1987-1994 BMW 7-Series E32
    • Episodes: "S.O.S."
    • License plate: (New York)
    • Color: Dark red
    • Background:

  • Land Rover Series 3 SWB
    • Episodes: "S.O.S."
    • License plate: MRL-724 (Australia)
    • Color: Faded Green
    • Background: Note that Bernard is seen through a window by Rose and Isaac as he crouches down to talk to a little girl next to a vehicle.

    • More images: Rear, Interior, Exterior with license plate


Cassidy

Main article: Automobiles/Cassidy
Cassidy and Kate arriving at the repair shop in "Left Behind"

Automobiles used by Cassidy

  • 1991-1994 Ford Explorer
    • Episodes:"Left Behind"
    • License plate: 26H IBQ (Iowa)
    • Color: Two Tone – Dark Green and Beige
    • Background: This is the 4-door model. 1991 was the first year for the Ford Explorer; 1995 and later models had a much more rounded design.


Charles Widmore

Automobiles used by Charles Widmore

  • 1998–present Bentley Arnage T
    • Episodes: "Live Together, Die Alone"
    • License plate:
    • Color: Black
    • Background: Note the Bentley filmed for Lost was a US left-drive vehicle, rather than a UK right-drive, as the steering wheel is barely visible on the left side. The wheels are classic Bentley styles, and the trim of this Arnage is likely the Arnage T, rather than the Arnage Red label, R, or RL.


Charlie

Main article: Automobiles/Charlie
Charlie's VW Vanagon

Automobiles used by Charlie

  • Late 1980s-1991 Volkswagen Kombi (Camper) Van Type 2 T3/Vanagon
    • Episodes: "Greatest Hits"
    • License plate: YRE2OL (UK)
    • Color: Black
    • Background: This van is the same model as the DHARMA Van, but the subsequent generation of that model.
    • The UK number plate format should show a white plate to the front. Only the rear plate should be yellow. The plate is obviously fake and of poor quality. Furthermore, the registration format is incorrect, although YRE20L (zero instead of "O") would be a valid registration.
    • The format/terminal letter of the UK number plate would indicate that the vehicle was registered between 1st August 1972 and 31st July 1973. This would indicate that the plate is either a production error or intended to be a personalized plate.
    • The scene appears to have been shot using a left-hand drive vehicle and then reversed left to right as the fuel filler cap should be just below and to the rear of the right-hand front door, but is not there. The headlights are US specs. In Europe the headlights were round, not square.


Charlotte Staples Lewis

Charlotte arrives at the dig-site in Medenine, Tunisia

Automobiles used by Charlotte

  • 1983-present Land Rover Defender 110
    • Episodes:"Confirmed Dead"
    • License plate:
    • Color: Beige
    • Background: Charlotte is seen riding as a passenger in the Defender as she arrives at the dig-site in Medenine, Tunisia. The actual driver is never identified but can be seen briefly as Charlotte is exiting the vehicle. Production of the 110 model began in 1983, and the ‘Defender’ model name was first added in 1990. 110 not only refers to the vehicle’s name but its wheel-base, which is 110 inches from axle to axle. It is very possible that the vehicle in the show can be narrowed down to the 1993 through 1997 year model range, as Defenders were only sold in the United States during that time, and LOST is produced in Hawaii.


Christian Shephard

Christian Shephard pulls into the Lynford Hotel ("A Tale of Two Cities")

Automobiles used by Christian Shephard

  • 2001-present Mercedes-Benz SL-500 R230
    • Episodes: "A Tale of Two Cities"
    • License plate: (California)
    • Color:Silver
    • Background: According to Themisfitishere's blog (link and link), this vehicle is said to be a 2007 model but could be any 2001+ R230 model.
    • Based on the wheels and style of the tail lights, it is a post-facelift R230, placing it's date of manufacture on or after 2006. Also, the wheels shown were standard wheels for the 2007 MY and later SL550s.
    • Other images: front headlight close-up


Claire

Main article: Automobiles/Claire
Claire and her mother's car accident in "Par Avion"

Automobiles used by Claire

  • Honda Civic (Sixth Generation, 1996-2000)
    • Episodes: "Par Avion"
    • License plate: (Australia)
    • Color:Black
    • Background: The scene was flipped from the original filming location to depict a right-hand drive vehicle


David Reyes

David Reyes' Yamaha Virago 535 motorcycle ("Tricia Tanaka Is Dead")

Vehicles used by David Reyes

  • Yamaha Virago 535 (1988-2001)
    • Episode: "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead"
    • License plate: unknown
    • Color: Black
    • Background: Note: Only the letters AMAH of "Yamaha" appear on the fuel tank, reflecting the show's policy of attempting to obscure real world corporate logos from being seen in the episode. For example Rose's Chevrolet had a logo obscured with red masking tape, but Locke's Ford had a briefly visible logo). Also, the actual motorcycle prop appears to be similar to Kate's motorcycle from "What Kate Did", and is potentially the same bike, given that the production crew has re-used vehicles before (e.g., see Tom Brennan's BMW, Golden Pontiac).
    • Other images: fuel tank view


Desmond

Main article: Automobiles/Desmond
Desmond's Honda Accord DX (right) ("Live Together, Die Alone")

Automobiles used by Desmond

  • 1986-1989 Honda Accord
    • Episodes: "Live Together, Die Alone"
    • License plate: (California)
    • Color: Maroon
    • Background: This vehicle is a third-generation (1986-1989) Accord, of the DX entry level trim due to its black unpainted bumper.


Edward Mars

Mars chasing after Kate in Austrailia in the GMC Yukon
Mars driving his government-issue Crown Victoria in the rain

Automobiles used by U.S. Marshal Edward Mars

  • 1992-1999 GMC Yukon
    • Episodes: "Tabula Rasa"
    • License plate: ALK 125
    • Color: Black
    • Background: The Yukon was never sold in Australia. Holden is the only company in Australia that produces GM vehicles, and there is no Holden equivalent of the GMC Yukon. Aside from Holden, any other GM vehicles found in Australia are usually imported into the country by private individuals, so it is possible for Mars to be driving one, but they are not that common. The ‘GMC’ emblem in the grill has been covered with some black material. The emblem is also horizontally reversed indicating that the vehicle is actually left-hand drive and that the scene has been flipped to make it appear as a right-hand drive vehicle.
  • 1992–1997 Ford Crown Victoria
    • Episodes: "What Kate Did"
    • License plate: 32929 (U.S. Government)
    • Color: Black or Dark Blue
    • Background: This vehicle was driven away by Kate at the end of the scene.
    • Other images: Front view (plates, headlamps on), side view


Eko

    • Episodes: "The 23rd Psalm"
    • License plate: 7h704
    • Color: Yellow (532)
    • Background:The Toyota FJ40 is the model designation for a Toyota Land Cruiser 40 series made from 1960 until 1984. Most 40 series Land Cruisers were built as two-door vehicles with approximately the same dimensions as a Jeep CJ.

Automobiles used by Emeka

  • 1985-1988 Toyota Hi-Lux Pickup

Essam Tasir

Essam Tasir and Sayid disembark from their Ford E-150 van ("The Greater Good")

Automobiles used by Essam Tasir

  • 1992-present Ford E-150 Van
    • Episodes: "The Greater Good"
    • License plate: ALK-125 (Australia)
    • Color: White
    • Background: This vehicle is a US left-drive vehicle, but all of the scenes featuring the interior and exterior of the van have been horizontally flipped to depict an Australian right-drive vehicle. Therefore the license plate prop must have been a mirror image in real life.
    • External links: LostVirtualTour, with screencaps showing reversed Ford and E-150 logos and Essam's reversed face.


Gabriela Busoni

Gabriela Busoni finds Jack ("The Hunting Party"). Inset: Antenna detail

Automobiles used by Gabriela Busoni

    • More images: More comparison images for vehicle ID, Antenna visible


Helen

Main article: Automobiles/Helen
Helen intentionally rear-ends Locke's VW Beetle ("Orientation"). This vehicle also appears ("Lockdown")
Locke and Helen arrive at Anthony Cooper’s funeral. The Toyota Camry has a different license plate in "Lockdown" than it did in "Orientation".

Automobiles used by Helen

  • 1987-1990 Toyota Camry
    • Episodes: "Orientation", "Lockdown"
    • License plate: 3NDF495 (California)
      • License plate as it appears in "Lockdown": 1F49953 (the tag is not very clear and may not be exact)
    • Color: Silver or light blue
    • Background: This vehicle is a second generation Camry, from the 1987-1991 era. This vehicle was driven by Locke at the beginning of "Lockdown" in the funeral scene, then driven away by Helen in the rejection scene at the Flightline Motel.
    • More images: Lockdown (funeral), Lockdown (Flightline Motel)


Horace Goodspeed

Horace drives up to become Roger's good samaritan ("The Man Behind the Curtain")

Automobiles used by Horace Goodspeed

  • 1966-67 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible
    • Episodes: "The Man Behind the Curtain"
    • License plate:
    • Color: Red
    • Background: This is a "high light" 1966 or 1967 later convertible. It is either a '66 or '67 based on the driver's side mirror, turn signals, and lack of fuel door on top of front right fender.


Hurley

Main article: Automobiles/Hurley
Hurley's post-lottery win Hummer H2 ("Numbers")
Hurley's Range Rover breaks down on his ill-fated journey to the Sydney Airport ("Exodus, Part 2")
Hurley sits on what is presumably his car ("Everybody Hates Hugo")
Hurley's Camaro ("Tricia Tanaka Is Dead")

Automobiles used by Hurley

  • 2003–present Hummer H2
    • Episodes: "Numbers"
    • License plate: (California)
    • Color: Yellow
  • 2002-present Land Rover Range Rover (rental)
    • Episodes: "Exodus, Part 2"
    • License plate: TX 327 (Australia)
    • Color: Dark Blue
    • Background: This Land Rover was a US left-drive vehicle, but the entire scene was horizontally flipped to depict an Australian right-drive vehicle. It license plate composed of two letters and three numbers is a Tasmanian format, although the color scheme may be incorrect for that Australian state.
    • External links: LostVirtualTour - license plate and scene reversal reference; Lost-Media - rear license plate.
  • 1993-1997 Nissan Altima
    • Episodes: "Everybody Hates Hugo"
    • License plate: unknown
    • Color: Grey
    • Background: the possibility that this Altima is Hurley's car is inferred from the scene where Hurley is shown sitting on the hood of this vehicle in the parking lot of Mr. Clucks. However in later scenes, Hurley is only shown as a passenger in Johnny's van, so the Altima may not be his.
  • Military Mercedes-Benz G-Class
    • Episodes: "Numbers"
    • Background: A vehicle is seen behind Hurley as he visits Sam Toomey's house in the outback.
    • External links: Lost-Media
  • 1974-1975 Ford Pinto Runabout
    • Episodes: "There's No Place Like Home, Part 1"
    • License plate: 2QRI445 (California)
    • Color: Brown
    • Background: 1974 was the first year for the federally mandated ‘large’ impact bumpers, but the Pinto still retained the same grill design as the previous year model, with the vertical slats. That grill was used on both the '74 and '75 models. Hurley is seen driving the Pinto as he’s pulling up to his house. The ‘Runabout’ badge is mounted on the driver’s side of the car just behind the rear-side window, and can be seen briefly as Hurley is exiting the vehicle.
  • 1970-1972 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
Main article: Hurley's Camaro
  • Episodes: "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead", "The Beginning of the End", "There's No Place Like Home, Part 1"
  • License plate: 429 PCE (Yellow-on-blue California)
  • Color: Two Tone - Red and White
  • Background: The Camaro used in "The Beginning of the End" has a ‘Z28’ badge on the rear trunk spoiler, and that badge can be seen during the scene of Hurley's crash and apprehension. The Camaro used in "There's No Place Like Home, Part 1" appears to be a genuine Z28, but the physical appearance of the car is definitely different than the Camaro used in the previous episodes, so it appears that different Camaros were used during the production of these shows. It’s unclear if any of these Camaros are actually genuine Z28 models. The Z28 models were some of the rarest of the Camaros that were produced from 1970 to 1972. The 1973 Camaro looks nearly identical to the 1970 through 1972 year models, but came with a federally mandated 2.5 mph impact bumper that was slightly different than those previous year models.
  • Other images: license plate view
  • 1968-1972 Volkswagen Kombi (Camper) Van Type 2 T2a
Main article: DHARMA van
  • Episode: "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead"
  • License plate: unknown
  • Color: Two Tone - Blue and White
  • Background: The Volkswagen Type 2 was the second automotive line introduced by German automobile manufacturer Volkswagen. It was a van introduced in 1950, initially based on Volkswagen's first model, the Type 1 (the "Beetle"). The Type 2 "Dharma van" that Hurley finds is a "T2a" or 1968-1972 version with a single front window and old bulbous wheel covers. The Volkswagen emblem has been replaced with a similar emblem of the DHARMA "main logo" of the same size.


Jack

Main article: Automobiles/Jack
Jack parks his BMW 3-Series E46 (left) at a Los Angeles area stadium ("Live Together, Die Alone")
Jack parks his Bronco across from "Hoffs / Drawlar" Funeral parlour ("Through the Looking Glass")
Jack walks from his Bronco as he sees Kate after her trial ("Eggtown")

Automobiles used by Jack

  • 2002-2006 BMW 3-Series E46 sedan
    • Episodes: "The Hunting Party", "Live Together, Die Alone", "A Tale of Two Cities"
    • License plate: unknown (presumably California)
    • Color: Dark Blue
    • Background: This is an E46 body as a 4-door sedan, as confirmed by the angle of the door that Jack opens, as well as the orange colored front turn signal, which would be clear on a 2-door. E46 BMWs have been produced between 1998-2006, but the shape of the front turn signal further identifies this vehicle as an updated E46 style produced between 2002-2006, likely a 325i.
    • More images: rear and front ends, From "A Tale of Two Cities"
  • 1969–1977 Ford Bronco
    • Episodes: "Through the Looking Glass", "Eggtown", "Something Nice Back Home", "The Lie"
    • License plate: 2SAQ321 (California)
    • Color: Brown
    • Background: This is not a 1966 or 67 because of the curved ends on the bumper which were changed for 1968. Also, it is not a 1968 because amber parking lights were added in 1969. It is most likely a 1970 or 71 model because the bumper is flat faced all across the front (no pair of extra guards). Also, it may be a Sport Bronco model (introduced as separate model for first time in 1970) based on the flared fenders, unicolor grill, and headlamp bezels. The license plate number is the same as that of the cars of Catherine Keener's character (Trish) in The 40-Year-Old Virgin and also used on one of the Mini Coopers in the big chase scene in The Italian Job.[source needed]


Jae Lee

Hotel scion Jae Lee's Porsche Boxster ("...And Found")

Automobiles used by Jae Lee

  • 1996–2004 Porsche Boxster 986
    • Episodes: "...And Found"
    • License plate: 3490 (S. Korea)
    • Color: Silver
    • Background: Jin valets this vehicle for Lee as he arrives at his hotel to meet Sun. The Porsche is the US version since the side markers are orange. International Boxsters had white transparent side markers lights and only repeated the turn signal but not the US side marker light.


Je-Guy Kim

Dr. Kim's Mercedes-Benz S-Class ("The Whole Truth")

Automobiles used by Dr. Je-Guy Kim

  • 2000–2005 Mercedes-Benz S-Class W220
    • Episodes: "The Whole Truth"
    • License plate: (S. Korea)
    • Color: Silver
    • Background: Dr. Kim is driving this vehicle as he discovers Sun walking her dog Popo. There is an interior scene viewing Sun standing outside, followed by an exterior scene as Dr. Kim parks the vehicle and runs after Sun.

Automobiles used by Jin

  • 2000–2005 Mercedes-Benz S-Class W220
    • Episodes: "...In Translation"
    • License plate: (S. Korea)
    • Color: Black
    • Background: the same vehicle appears to be used for the scene where Jin visits his father. Therefore it is probably Jin's vehicle, rather than the one assigned to Mr. Paik's hitman.
    • More images:
Jae Lee falls to his death on Jin's BMW ("The Glass Ballerina")
  • 1989-1996 BMW 5-Series E34

    • License plate: (S. Korea)
    • Color: Grey
    • Background: This is the vehicle he uses to drive to Jae Lee, and upon which Jae Lee later falls to his death. The automobiles used for filming (one each for pre- and post-accident) are probably the same as the ones used for Tom Brennan's BMW ("Born to Run"), due to damage from both scenes visible on the same car.

Johnny's tow truck

Automobiles used by Johnny

  • 1994-2002 Chevrolet 3500 Tow Truck
  • Episode: "Left Behind"
  • Color: White
  • License plate: 41G NCJ (Iowa)
  • Background: The phone number on the truck reads (515) 555-HELP. The side of the tow truck indicates it has a 10,000 GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating); that can be seen just before Kate gets into the truck after her car is attached to the truck tow. The exact model of the cab is hard to determine; whether it’s a Silverado, Express, C/K, etc. The fact that it has a heavy-duty drivetrain and suspension indicates that it’s a 3500, which is common for tow trucks. It has a heavy-duty drivetrain because there are two wheels on each side of the rear axle (four total). The towing package is also hard to determine; it could be Jerr-Dan, Century, or another brand. The 1988 and 1989 models usually came with sealed-beam headlamps, which this tow truck does not have. 1990 thru 1993 had a slightly different grill design. The grill and the hood on this tow truck are similar to the Chevrolet trucks built from 1994 to 1999. Most 2000 thru 2002 models had a more rounded design in both of those areas, however some models retained the same body style as the 1994 thru 1999 models, so there is also a slight chance that the tow truck is a 2000 to 2002. 2003 models and newer have a more aggressive styling than this vehicle has.

Ray Mullen's Ford F-150 crashing alongside the road

Automobiles used by Ray Mullen

  • 1982–1987 Ford F-150
    • Episodes: "Tabula Rasa"
    • License plate: unknown
    • Color: Red
    • Background: Ray's truck is depicted as an Australian right-hand drive vehicle, although it is likely the real vehicle was a U.S. left-hand drive vehicle, and that the entire scene was horizontally flipped. F-150 pickup trucks are not sold in Australia, however private individuals and businesses import them into the country. It is possible for Ray to own one, but it would be more common to see a farmer in Australia driving a Ute instead of an American pickup truck. A Ute (short for Utility) is a car with only a front seat and a bed like a pickup truck, similar to the Chevrolet El Camino, Ford Ranchero, Subaru Brat, and GMC Sprint.


Richard Alpert

Automobiles used by Richard Alpert

  • 2003-present Chevrolet Express van

Rose

Main article: Automobiles/Rose
Rose thanks Bernard for helping free her Chevy Cavalier from the snow ("S.O.S."). The large Chevrolet logo on the rear fascia directly between the tail lights has been covered by a swath of red tape

Automobiles used by Rose

  • 2004–2005 Chevrolet Cavalier Sedan
    • Episodes: "S.O.S."
    • License plate: BNQ-1925 (New York)
    • Color: Silver
    • Background: This vehicle is a third generation (J-body) Chevrolet Cavalier Sedan, and its rear fascia identifies it as a post-2003 version. This automobile's front wheel drive (FWD) is featured in the close-up of the forward tires slipping in the snow. Note that the large Chevrolet "bowtie" logo that normally stretches between the two reverse lights has been covered by a swath of red tape. The Lost production crew, like nearly all television crews, seeks to eliminate the visibility of any identifiable logos. An exception is Locke's Ford truck, whose rear lid logo is visible in Lost.

Sawyer's S-Class Mercedes Benz ("The Long Con"); Iowa license plate is visible; note removal of the 3-pointed star hood ornament
Sawyer's Volvo S70 ("The Long Con")
Sawyer's Ford Taurus (fourth generation) rental car ("Outlaws")
Sawyer's E-39 BMW 5-Series ("Confidence Man")

Automobiles used by Sawyer

  • 2000–2005 Mercedes-Benz S-Class W220
    • Episodes: "The Long Con"
    • License plate: ??6-?TA (Iowa)
    • Color: Black
    • Background: This is the vehicle that Sawyer points out from the house window and lies about a hitman waiting inside of it. In actuality, it was Sawyer's vehicle. Note the absence of the Mercedes-Benz hood logo. Most real-world logos filmed in Lost are obscured, or are actually covered, as was the rear logo on Rose's Chevrolet. Also worth noting is the Iowa license plate, which connects Sawyer's flashback to the same state as Kate's "Born to Run" flashback.
    • Judging from the tail lights, it is a pre-2003 facelift S-Class. Also of note are the aftermarket chromed rims.

  • 2000–present Ford Taurus
    • Episodes: "Outlaws"
    • License plate: (Australia)
    • Color: silver
    • Background: Although this scene is set in Australia, the automobile and background are not horizontally flipped. However, in one shot where the US left-hand drive steering wheel would be visible, a map is strategically draped over the dash, obscuring it. This vehicle is a fourth generation Taurus, and the updated rear fascia and tail lights reveal it to be of 2004-2007 vintage. The Taurus was only sold in Australia between 1996 and 1998.

  • 1999-2003 BMW M5 E39
    • Episodes: "Confidence Man"
    • License plate:
    • Color: blue gray
    • Background: This BMW is an E39 model 5-Series, dating it to 1996-2003 model, the last "pre-Bangle" 5-Series. It is an M5, the more powerful and (naturally) more expensive version of the standard BMW 5-series. The front air dam, 10-spoke wheels, and badges on the rub-strip distinguish the M5 from the base 5-series.

Tom Brennan

Dr. Tom Brennan's E34 BMW 5-Series sedan ("Born to Run")

Automobiles used by Tom Brennan

  • 1989-1996 BMW 5-Series E34
    • Episodes: "Born to Run"
    • License plate: 386-SQZ or 384-GC2 (Iowa)
    • Color: Silver
    • Background: This is an E34 body, which dates it to the 1988-1985 model years, probably a 525i. The automobiles used for filming (one each for pre- and post-accident) are the same as the ones used for Jin's BMW ("The Glass Ballerina"), due to the separate damage from each scene being visible on the same car. Note that this vehicle collided with the Golden Pontiac, below, which is another vehicle that has appeared in multiple episodes.

The Lost Experience

Automobiles used in the ARG (alternate reality game) The Lost Experience

William T. Kilpatrick is kidnapped in a white Dodge Sprinter van in The Lost Experience.
  • Dodge Sprinter van
Main article: William T. Kilpatrick
  • License plate: 1646 HH (Michigan)
  • Background: William T. Kilpatrick was kidnapped in this van in the Lost Experience, while trying to expose the Jeep corporation for collaborating with the Hanso Foundation's nefarious plans. The video was released on YouTube as part of Jeep's tie-in with The Lost Experience, as Jeep and Dodge are both owned by Chrysler. The video ended with the web URL for their tie-in site, letyourcompassguideyou.com. The vehicle is primarily a commercial cargo vehicle in the US, as seen by the lack of passenger windows.

Miscellaneous

This section contains featured vehicles not associated with a particular character.

The Golden Pontiac (right) is involved in a collision with Tom Brennan's BMW (left) ("Born to Run"). Note the Iowa plates visible on the Pontiac
  • 1987-1991 Pontiac Bonneville
Main article: Golden Pontiac
  • Color: Gold
  • Background: A golden H-body Pontiac Bonneville, apparently the same vehicle, appears in accidents in three different episodes in season one, leading to fan speculation of its significance. However, Damon Lindelof noted that although the same stunt vehicle was used, no intentional thread of connection was intended. When asked about it on a podcast, the question asker posed the idea that it was Jacob's car, Darlton joked that the car is Jacob.

Juliet watches in shock as Edmund is hit by a bus ("Not in Portland")
  • 1998 Gillig Phantom bus (40 foot)
  • Episode: "Not in Portland"
  • Background: This Bus is an actual fleet vehicle, number 361, from TheBus, which is Honolulu City and County's municipal transit company, reflected by the yellow stripe detail used in this fleet. Juliet made a dark joke when Richard Alpert attempted to recruit her to work for Mittelos Bioscience, that the only way she would be able to was if Edmund Burke got run over by a bus. This event actually later happened, as he stepped into the street. The bus also had an Apollo Candy ad on it.

The Mr. Cluck's delivery van seen ("Tricia Tanaka Is Dead")
  • 2003-2008 GMC Savana Cargo Van (unidentified model year)
  • Episode: "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead"
  • License plate: 3PCI017 (California)
  • Van number (printed on sides and back): 513937
  • Color: Yellow (Mr. Cluck's livery)
  • Background: The delivery van was parked outside Hurley's Mr. Cluck's franchise in Diamond Bar, California when the meteorite struck. Note that the front fascia GMC logo has been obscured. The Lost production crew, like nearly all television crews, seeks to eliminate the visibility of any identifiable logos, such as the logo on Rose's Chevrolet. An exception is Locke's Ford truck, whose rear lid logo is visible in Lost.
