Default Two Lane Blacktop

Yeah, James Taylor played the part well, BTW he's a pretty good singer/song writer and play's a mean guitar, maybe you've heard of him....

The thing that sets 2LB so far apart from movies like FF, is there are NO trick photography or 'physically impossible' wheelstands and the like. It is ALL about REAL LIFE and 'possible' action. I LOVE the scene where they're blowing out the carbon at WOT out across a long stretch of Two Lane Blacktop, makin' 'er SING !!
