Homer's sedan

Homer Simpson drives a pink sedan. how to build a drag car In "The Great Louse Detective", we find out that Homer's car was made in Croatia out of old how to build a fast mousetrap car Soviet tanks.

It does, however, bear a vague resemblance to a Soviet car, the GAZ Volga M24. Homer´s car represents build a car trailer for bicycles the typical big American car, but is not any specific build a fast pinewood derby car model. The back of his car closely resembles a mid-1980's Cadillac Brougham; the side and build a hybrid car front allude to a generic early 1970s design. It comes build a muscle car design equipped with an 8-track cartridge player, called a 'Trackstar'. Homer's build a pedal car Vehicle registration plate is 3FJP24.

It resembles build a stereo for my car 1973 Cadillac DeVille:[1] The car also has bench seats in the front and back, how to build a fuel economy car forum alluding to the fact that it is not a very good car. Sky One's live-action how to build a pedal car re-enactment of the play games build a car internet game opening in 2006 used a brown Lada Riva for Homer's car, a model that was never offered for a website that you can build your own drag car sale in the United States.

Marge's red station wagon

Marge is believed to own a Chrysler, build a car computer program judging by the build a car game star on the hood ornament. However, the sloping tailgate and round taillights in the rear bumper are identifying features of the 1973-77 General build a car on a website Motors B-body wagons, particularly the Chevrolet Chevelle, as is the frameless build a cool car glass in the doors and the general appearance of build a steam powered car the front (although on Marge's how much does it cost to build a hybrid car car, this part is almost generic).

Adding to the likelihood how to build a race car of the car being a Chrysler, and like Homer's car, how to build a self service car wash Marge's station wagon is meant build a car subwoofer box to be generically representative of the big American cars popular throughout build a car website the 1960s and 1970s.

Stock car

Bart gets to ride in two-time Fast Car champ Clay Babcock's stock car in "Alone Again, Natura-Diddly."


In the episode the "The Joy of Sect," the Leader is seen driving around the cult's compound in a Rolls-Royce Phantom VI while his followers are toiling harvesting lima beans. While Lisa considers this an example of exploitation on the part of the Leader, Homer is mainly concerned that the Leader did not "buy American."

Stutz Bearcat

See Mr. Burns' vehicles. Also see Fat Tony's Stutz Bearcat(right).

Toyota Camry

Superintendent Chalmers is seen driving a yellow Camry of early 1990's vintage in "Fat Man and Little Boy," suggesting that he traded in his 1979 Accord. Otto, attempting another stunt with the bus, totals it. The next season, Skinner gets his own 1997 model.

VW Beetle

Like Volvos, Volkswagen Beetles can be seen on the Simpsons (for a complete collection of Volkswagen-sightings on the Simpsons, see [4]). The very tall man has one in "22 Short Films About Springfield," saying it was the largest car he could afford. Also, Kearney has an older one in Marge Simpson in: Screaming Yellow Honkers, and a New Beetle was seen in the background in one scene in The Lastest Gun In The West.


Occasionally in later episodes, a Volvo can be seen going by on The Simpsons. To recognize one, look for a diagonal line on the grille. Some sightings of Volvos:

  • Julius Hibbert drives a silver Volvo 850 in "My Sister, My Sitter". When complimenting Lisa on her babysitting skills, he says, "I only wish my Volvo mechanic was as reliable."
  • Tab Spangler drives a white Volvo V70 in "The Heartbroke Kid."
  • Agnes Skinner is seen getting out of one in "E-I-E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)" outside of Moe's
  • Two pass by Thomas Pynchon in "Diatribe of a Mad Housewife".
  • Gil drives one in "I, D'oh-Bot"
  • One almost kills Ralph in "Bye Bye Nerdie."
  • When Bart worries that he and Lisa will be employed as crash test dummies in "Bart-Mangled Banner", Lisa prays: "Please be Volvo".
  • Probably one of the oldest Volvo sightings, in the episode "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie". When Maggie is driving the car, a Volvo is seen behind her.
  • In the live action Simpsons opening sequence used in "Homer Simpson, This Is Your Wife," [5] Marge drives a Volvo 240 sedan.
  • The commissioner of "Pro Football" drives a Volvo to Springfield in "Million Dollar Abie."
  • In Bart's Comet, when they throw rocks at the balloon to make it come down, they hit Principal Skinner's car instead, probably a Volvo 740 or maybe a Volvo 240.
  • In "The Italian Bob", Francesca, Sideshow Bob's wife drives a Volvo, type unknown.


Some people believe that Homer owns a Yugo, based on a one-time reference to his car being made in Croatia. This rumor has spread to Marge's car as well. However, evidence on the show disproves that theory about Marge's car, and keep in mind that the Yugos sold in the United States were hatchbacks only. Anyway, just looking at those cars, anyone will realize they are not Yugos, and that the Croatian connection (remember, Zastavas and Yugos are not made in Croatia) is just one of the program´s jokes.

In one episode, Homer Simpson test drives a car from a country that the dealer tells him "no longer exists", but the car "gets 300 hectares to a tank of kerosene." As Homer attempts to push-start the car, the dealer shouts: "Put it in 'H'!" In the Serbian language (officially written in the Cyrillic alphabet), the word for 'Neutral' is 'Neutralan'. In Cyrillic, the word would be written "Неутралан" with an H, which does indeed look exactly like a Roman H. This fact is also used in Murder on the Orient Express. This effectively proves that the car is from a country using the Cyrillic alphabet. However, all Yugos sold in the United States had manual transmission only, so "Neutral" would not be marked.



Truck-o-Saurus has the appearance of a bi-pedal dinosaur created out of trucks. It has talons for grabbing and damaging other vehicles, as well as flamethrowers which give it the ability to breathe fire.

Truck-o-Saurus made its first appearance in the episode "Bart the Daredevil". When Bart Simpson and Homer Simpson see an advertisement for a Monster Truck Rally prominently featuring Truck-o-Saurus, they convince the rest of the Simpsons family to attend as a family event. After first attending Lisa's recital, the family drives to the Monster Truck Rally and has difficulty finding parking. Unwittingly, they mistake the entrance-way to the main arena for the Monster Truck Rally as a suitable parking spot. Truck-o-Saurus subsequently damages the Simpsons family car severely, but they are compensated for the damage afterwards.

Truck-o-Saurus also makes a brief appearance in the episode "Marge vs. the Monorail". While watching television, Homer sees an advertisement for Truck-o-Saurus: The Movie, starring Marlon Brando as John Truckasaurus (celebrity voice impersonated). Truck-o-Saurus has the following line: "You crazy car, I don't know whether to eat you or kiss you."

It also appears in the Simpsons Hit and Run game.

Truck-o-saurus was inspired by the real life robotic dinosaur, Robosaurus.
