      As far as cars in costumes, none, if any, may have this 1964 Lincoln Continental beat. It's got a costume within a costume, like dreams in the movie Inception -- but perhaps missing yet another costume; that was a confusing film. The Deathmobile plays out most of its role in the movie as Kent "Flounder" Dorfman's car -- borrowed from his brother -- which is quickly commandeered by the rest of the Delta Tau Chi fraternity for mayhem. At the film's finale, the frat disguises the car as a cake with "Eat Me" written on the side, and crashes the homecoming parade. It bashes other floats, throwing the well-ordered parade into chaos. But with the words, "Cut the cake," the black, flamed, turreted, Deathmobile emerges from the smoke -- literally -- blows its train whistle, and sets its sights on Dean Wormer.
