The Best Fictional Movie Mechanics

Updated July 11, 2019 488 votes 69 voters 1.4k views13 items

Get the socket wrench ready as we rank the greatest movie mechanics of all time. It's easy to see why there are so many mechanics in pop culture. These blue-collar workers have unique skills that not many people have. When they’re the main character, they often use their fine-tuned ingenuity to work their way out of sticky situations; when they’re a supporting character, they contribute to the team in a unique way.

While some movies only feature one or two mechanics, other franchises are full of them. Pretty much the entire cast of the Fast and Furious films are mechanics in some ways, and we see them regularly improve their cars to fight bad guys. In the original film, Dom Toretto repaired cars by day and raced them by night. You also have characters like Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max, who repairs vehicles for the dictator in charge of water distribution. Who do you think is the best mechanic?

Vote up the best mechanics so everyone can know where they should take their cars if they lived in a fictional universe.
