8 Mile, one of the morst era-defining hip-hop movies of the 2000s, will be turning 10 later this year. The main character Jimmy Smith Jr. aka Eminem aka Marshall Mathers has gone through an up and down career whirlwind in that period of time, much like the auto industry has with the economy in recent years. One thing, however, has certainly remained constant throughout: Detroit has been, and will forever be, a motor capitol in the United States and the world.
Set in D-Town, 8 Mile used a huge variety of vehicles from the Ford Mustang to the Oldsmobile Delta to the Plymouth Acclaim. Just to be clear, this list doesn't cover every single car in the film. Some were irrelevant, some nobody really cares about, and some were gone so quickly, it was like they weren't even in the movie. Don't worry, though. Every car in every major scene relevant to the storyline is there with plenty of background extras to keep you busy. Click through to see The Complex Guide to the Cars in 8 Mile.
