    Things are tuff all over.

    Cheech and Chong drive that Cadillac to Vegas and sell parts of it to pay for food and gas and pick up the FE FE's!

    I liked Vanishing point mostly because I had a 70 Challanger RT with a 383 magnum when it came out ( My first New Car).. all the rest of the movies that were nentioned were great as well.. It would be hard to pick a favourite...

    Not my #1 favorite however high up there as top 3 most impacting ... and watched because I have a young family ... "Cars" really woke us up on the reality of the super-highway versus the days of just going for a simple cruise down the hamlet-roads ... not to mention that today's Corvettes emulate the bugs-n-teeth and all ... all singing "Life is a Highway..."?

    And of course Fast Company, which was filmed at the old Edmonton International Raceway. Does anyone remember this old classic? I just bought a copy from Amazon.

    I'm aware of that. :Biggrin: The younger members might be confused thinking of the Jason Statham version.

    The original "Italian Job" would be one of my favourites.

    Charles Bronson's " The Mechanic " had a short but good little car chase in Italy. That's a movie high on my list.

    I thought I saw a briefcase hanging on your garage wall Franci. :Biggrin:

    Must have been mistaken.

    What a gem! Wherever did you find it? Must google to see if there's a copy out there, anywhere. It must be amazing if the Hoff is in it! :Stig:

    Lots of good ones there, and I do like most of them. I guess for me the top ones would be:
    Gone in 60 Seconds
    Smokey and the Bandit
    Original Fast and Furious.

    And I can't believe nobody mentioned.............The Wraith........I hated the movie personally, but a lot of my friends liked it back in '86

    I forgot about the Italian Job. That was a pretty good movie, and watching those little Mini's run through tight spaces at high speeds was awesome.
