Zoinks! the Mystery Machine is voted children's favourite car
Scooby-Doo's Mystery Machine has been voted the best screen motor of all time - ahead of the Batmobile, 007's gadget-laden Aston Martin and Del Boy's Reliant Robin. The vehicle - based on a 1968 Chevrolet Sportvan - made its TV debut in 1969.

Over the years the flower power cartoon cruiser has spawned copies around the world with fans painting their Chevrolet Sportvans blue and green.

The van came top of a poll of 3,000 children conducted by Toys "R" Us in conjunction with the launch of Disney Pixar's new film Cars. It revealed that Herbie, the No 53 Love Bug, takes second place as the most memorable fictional car.

The Beetle, which has a life of its own, has appeared in five movies.

Third place went to comic book superhero Batman's Batmobile whose original 1966 model began life as a Lincoln Futura concept car.

Family favourite Chitty Chitty Bang Bang flew in at fourth place.

A spokeswoman for Toys "R" Us said: "We know fictional cars are incredibly popular, because when any new film is launched, sales of related car merchandise go through the roof."
