Hooniverse Asks- What Car is Jack Nicholson?

Yesterday, we wanted to know which car carried with it the stench of an undesirable stereotype. You came back with a plethora of choices- from the daintiness of the  Miata, to the creepiness of the pedovan. Now we want to take a 180, and see what you think is the coolest car out there, and in order to do that we want to give you the coolest dude there is of whom that car, or truck, would be the embodiment.
Jack Nicholson: few of us have ever had the pleasure of hanging with him, many of us would like to be him. He has that undefinable quality—that air about him—which makes a short, balding, pudgy guy one of the coolest men in the world.
It’s not what he does, it’s how he does it- his cadence of speech, his demeanor and the adroitly placed smirk. Whatever the reason, it’s what makes Jack well, Jack. But is there a car that possesses that same magnetism, that very essence of coolness that causes passersby to stop and imagine themselves behind the wheel?
While we can’t be Jack, we can sure buy a car that is as cool as he is, the question is- which one is it?

    Jack is a 64 Imperial Crown Convertible, with scotch stains (among other stains) on the seats and a loaded .357 in the glove box.

      I could only come up with a '68 Cadillac convertible. I believe you nailed it here. It needs duals, so it sounds as sinister as it looks.

    Nice, That one seems to fit a lot better. The GTO is a little too polished.

    Jack is a battered late model S-class weaving in the lane next to you.

    1966 Pontiac Grand Prix, black. Hell, it even looks like a batmobile.

    I'm gonna say he's a '71 "Boat tail" Riviera. He's not quite as cool as an earlier version of himself (like a '63-'65 Rivvy), a bit heavier, slightly more mellow, and not quite as cutting edge as opposed to his younger self, but he's still pretty damn awesome.

      I dunno, my grandparents had one of those. I loved it as a kid, one of my favorite cars. It doesn't make me think of Jack Nicholson, makes me think of Jerry Codrington (a Brigadier General in the New York National Guard, I'll have you know).

    I'm sure we could find something to make that 413 Wedge clear it's throat.

    1966 Buick Riviera GS with a pinch of lower body rust and a set of Cherry Bombs that only sound like the mouth of Hell if you really step on it.

    The Gumpert Apollo.
    Jack Nicholson is not a good looking man. Even my gay friends agree. However, he is damn cool and attracts a lot of attention wherever he goes. He gets the chicks.
    The Gumpert Apollo is the same way. It's ugly. Even my supercarphile friends agree. However, it's damn cool and attracts a lot of attention where it goes because it's not your run-of-the-mill supercar. I don't know if it get's the chicks any better than my Mustang, but it's a lot faster.

    I would have to say Jeep. Never really attractive, but enthusiastically embraced by wild youth of the "me" generation…only to get fatter, cushier and more conventional as time went on. But still quintessential and probably able to knock your teeth out if you don't watch yourself.

    '66 Lincoln with suicide doors, a back seat full of hookers and a meat cleaver in the glove compartment. Oh, and some herb…

    Impala. From a pretty cool vehicle to an overweight sad shell of its former self in a few decades.

    Sometimes Jack is a mean and rumbling 1966 Olds Toronado, sometimes Jack is a Lexus SC 430 doing three under the limit in the passing lane.

    He's a F-250 panel van. Oh, perfectly innocent by itself, but when the nasty man visits and paints "Free Candy" an the side… well, just ask Roman Polanski for the sordid details.
