Last week, I offered a family four-pack of tickets to see the national tour of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” parking here April 28-May 3. For more information on the production, click here. The winner, chosen at random, was Vicki Williamson. I also asked you to name your favorite extraordinary car, besides CCBB.

I’ll break your responses into three groups:

First, the big repeaters:

Herbie the Love Bug 23%

KITT from “Knight Rider” 11%

The “Back to the Future” Delorean 8%

The Batmobile 7%

Also scoring multiple entries were Speed Racer’s Mach 5, Scooby-Doo’s Mystery Machine, Eleanor from “Gone in 60 Seconds” and Lightning McQueen from “Cars.”

Next group, the interesting one-voters:

The Care Bear’s Cloud Car (Brandy Wood)

The Barbie Dream RV (Alane Summers)

My Mother the Car-from the short-lived TV show of the same name (Branda Gross)

Final group, the very personal choices. Here’s a sampling:

“My parents’ 1973 Ford Country Squire LTD Brougham (Trailering Special) station wagon with wood paneling. They gave ‘Woody’ to me sometime in the late ’80s. I later gave it to my friend Jim who later gave it to some guy named Bob and then I lost track of it. All I know is it had a great second life tailgating down in Bloomington.” (Paul Krueger)

“1936 Chevy Master Deluxe-awesome car, my Daddy bought for his daughters for $150 in 1966. The family still owns it!” (Marsha Becker)

“Charlie-the name of a series of cars that my dad purchased from our neighbor, Charlie Neese. Side story: I grew up on a farm and going to the grain elevator with dad was one of my favorite things in the world. On one trip they gave me a kitten that I immediately named ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.’ After I stood in the yard calling ‘Chitty Chitty,’ my mom made me rename the cat.” (Nora Spitznogle)

“My currently haunted Saturn, with locks that magically pop up and down and windshield wipers that randomly turn off and on.” (Morgan Greenlee)

“When I was in high school, I owned a 1979 Dodge/Plymouth Colt. It was little bigger than a commercial size washing machine. Man, you could fit it into the tiniest of spaces. A couple of times, I would have a girlfriend get out prior to parking and open the rear hatch. Once I pulled in, I would simply climb out the back of the car and we would be on our way.” (Adam Reiff)

“The Green AMC Ambasador (the Dragon wagon) that brought me home from California when I got out of the Navy. I had to stop every 250 miles to fill it up with gas and oil but it was amazing.” (Brian Simpson)

“My kid’s cozy coop car. It keeps my 1-year-old son entertained for a very long time! (Monica Nicholas)
