Oscar Drives

The nominees for the BTB Oscar's "Best Use of Car" category are...

The 1965 East German-made Wartburg 312/1 from the Polish film (and Oscar winner) Ida,  the vehicle for the improbable road trip of Ida (a novice nun) and her aunt (one-time state prosecutor).
The '59 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz driven by Shasta in Inherent Vice.
And the ensemble cast of early 80's police cars, Mercs, LTDs, and oil delivery trucks from A Most Violent Year, the underrated and underseen movie about oil business shakedowns and reprisals in New York City in 1981.
Note: I didn't see many movies last year, so please suggest your favorites.
