Now wouldn't you want a car like that? I certainly would.

LOL: It would also automatically debit your account for the self repair charges!

Thumbs up

Hi
I am new to team -bhp and this is my first post. here is my list of all time great car movies.
1.) Grand Prix (1966) Live action with no conmputer graphics , all stunts actually staged with F2 cars made up to look like f1 cars following the actual 1965 season for live footage, including racing on the great Monza banking - banned since.
2.) Le Mans - Steve McQueen's tribute to racing in which he drives the Gulf Porsche 917. Superbly realistic and creative photography , again with no computer graphics making it all the more difficult to film.
3.) Bullitt - Greatest car chase ver through the streets of San Francisco with stunt driving of the Mustang done by stuntman Bud Ekins , the same guy who rode as McQueens' double in the motorcycle chase in 'The Great Escape".
4.) Gumball Rally - Fun with cars and great footage of Ferrari daytona and Cobra racing across America similar ro rhe Cannonball Run.
5.) the Italian Job.(Both versions) although my favourite is the original with live action from the classic mini coopers.
6.) Vanishing Point - Terrific speed scenes of the big block Plymouth Barracuda .
7.) Cannonball Run.- caper with cars .
8.) Ronin...captivating car chase.

Cheers

Fast and Furious - Tokyo Drift : I happened to watch this on Sat night at 11:00 pm along with my 3 year old son. Drifting up the mountains was just awesome.

How many here know how to drift?

Agreed The Vanishing Point. That movie just struck a deep chord in me. My next favorite was The Italian Job, loved it to bits

Great car movie, especially for a car lover (in the nicest possible way). Still can't forget the scene where Keith Gordon walks up in front of the Fury & says "show me", & the she starts to mend herself

P.S. - I wonder how many '58 Furies Carpenter damaged, or worse, destroyed, trying to bring King's Christine to life !
