"Bullitt", with Steve McQueen, best car chase ever filmed. Le Mans, nothing on earth sounds like a porsche V-12 at full song, flying down the Mulsanne straight. Except maybe, a V-12 ferrari. Not a car guy movie, but "On Any Sunday", was good too, for the dirt bike crowd. For you dirt track guys, check out "get back to dirt", great movie about dirt track racers at the devil's bowl down in Texas.

Brian, in the original, Kowalski, outran a helicopter in that challenger, and the white car burning at the end of the movie, was a Camaro, in the original.

I don't know which one of the F&F movies it was that I saw, but I only saw one. It had a Black Charger which did a wheelie. That same car was here at a car show in Lane County... IT HAD A HYDRAULIC/WHEEL ASSMBLY THAT LIFTED THE FRONT UP TO MAKE A FAKE WHEELSTAND!!!!! I wanted to spit on that Hollywood POS... any car that requires a lap-top in the drivers seat to tune it while racing is outlawed in my book of cool cars too.

I remember the original "Vanishing Point", Gone in 60, A/G, 2Ln Blktp, & another movie (can't remember the name) where guy's were stealing hot-rod parts to keep racing too. Hey, remember "Death race 2000???" that was cheesy. Man, we need some good hot-rod flicks.

Don't forget that scene in "Bullit" w/ Steve Mcqueen.... scoot

Yep- it had a hydraulic cyclinder built in to the center section of the car that came down w/ wheels that lifted the front.... they had the car displayed that way at the show. Weird....

Yeah, it was funny watching that Charger's 'wheelstand'.
Yanking the fronts until the rear bumper dragged ON THE STREET in an unprepared section with all the daily traffic grit to boot and on 10's. So hokey it was hilarious :shock: :shock:
I've got '2 Lane Blacktop' and have just about worn it out also. We need a well acted, produced, and realistic CAR MOVIE !! Ya hear that Hollywierd !!

With all of us boomers out there , it'd make a brazillion bucks !

My better half and I saw the new fast and furious movie last night. For the 4th movie it was better than I had thought it would be
I do feel kinda' stupid though, spending a lot of my money on suspension parts to get my car too hook and saw that it can be done on Mexican desert with street tires
