GM decided to celebrate a little bit by creating a tribute to the Blues Brothers. A special edition Chevy Cruze was decked out like the classic Dodge Monaco Police Cruser used in the movie. Note the small bull horn on top, more than likely to scale, considering the size of the Chevrolet Cruze. The crew featured to jazz guys who called themselves the Cruze Brothers. Their mission from God was a one of a kind party at the Ace Cafe just outside London. So what are they celebrating? Well it's Chevrolet 100th year. See ya next time.

This is the first of many posts to come, here on On Screen Cars. I would like to take a minute to explain how the idea for this blog came about. Hi I'm Matt, the primary author of this blog and confirmed car nut. I've been around cars my whole life. My brother owned an automotive repair shop while I was in high school. I spent many weekends working at the shop and learning the tricks of the trade. When I was younger, I watched him restore a 1967 Chevelle Malibu.
All the while, I admired cars on television, in moves, and in video games. Not to mention some of the stars who drove those cars. I'm not sure how old I was when I saw my first car movie or television show. But I'm pretty sure I was drooling in front of the screen. To boot, I wouldn't be surprised if, while watching, I was assembling model kits or building LEGO machines.
As time goes on, you'll begin to understand my passion about these On Screen Cars. I hope my level of automotive enthusiasm inspires you in a positive way. Feel free to comment on any of our posts. I promise to be as opened minded as possible. Thanks for swinging by.
