Two Lane Blacktop has the best audio, if you've ever driven a truly hopped up Big Block Chevy, thats what they sound like, and the howl of the straight cut gears in the Rock Crusher Muncie is pretty distinctive.

Warren Oats didn't stand a chance with that 455.

Personally, yer Mad Max II (sure, they faked the supercharger on the V8 Interceptor, but who cares? It sounds mean and the action is great.)

Otherwise, Death Race (remake) for pure fun, and Ronin or French Connection for scary driving...

Gone in 60 Seconds. The original, not the remake. Saw it at the drive-in when I was a kid and it really impressed me. All the more now that I know he did it all himself and could've died in the process.

American Graffiti takes a close second. I've been slowly accumulating kits of the cars in the movie-the most recent being a '55 Chevy, one of which was the same car used in Two Lane Blacktop if you didn't know. Another one I'd mention that hasn't been yet is Smokey & The Bandit, just for fun.

Definitely "Le Mans", Steve McQueen takes you for a drive in the country. The country is France. The drive is at 200mph.

Hmmmm, there is no other.

Ok then, Grand Prix, Bullit, Vanishing Point, The (original) Italian Job, The French Connection. I'm sure there others but that'll do for now, I'm probably dating myself a bit. :lol:

Steve.

Hah, almost forgot that one! Now there's truly the best car movie ever made.

No cheesy dialogue, unexistent story and annoying characters of the contemporary car movies - mostly just cars. And we're now talking about real glass-fibre-over-steel-tube racing cars and not some digitally created spoiler monsters from Japan. Incidentally, not that much story or dialogue on that one either...

Love the fact that they filmed most of the movie during the actual 24 Hours race. There's a good article in Autoweek from a few issues ago about it.

I've been looking for a copy on Blu-Ray but will have to get it online I guess.
