    Loved all the crazy customs created for TV shows back in the day...

    Especially when Jethro decided to hot-rod the Clampett family truck.

    Hows bout a shout out for "my mother the car"...

    Yup. Agreed, the movie kinda sucked but loved the car.

    Hmmm....

    Best chase scene... gotta go with "Bullitt"

    Best road rage movie... "Vanishing Point" (Original... Not that lame remake of a few years ago )

    Best "modersickle" movie... "Timerider: The Adventure of Lyle Swan"

    Best over-the-top chase scene... "Matrix 2"

    Best Post Apocalyptic road rally/chase... tie "Mad Max" / "The Road Warrior"

    Best wheeless "modersickle" chase... Speederbike chase in "Return of the Jedi"

    Best car commercial.... way old Toyota commercial featuring a dragstrip race between a Toyota and "The Green Monster" former land/speed record holder.

    Mad Max and Mad Max II (aka The Road Warrior) are hands down, the best car/truck/bike movies in cinematic history, in my opinion anyhow. You just cannot beat the action or the vast array of awesome vehicles in either of those movies.

    Both classics, both great movies. Also, I cannot remember which James Bond movie it was, but I remember him driving out the back of the truck to engage in a great chase scene through Italy, iirc. I think it was Octopussy...

    I think it was overshadowed by the rest of the movie being a gigantic turd.

    Ha ha... so many favorites have already been mentioned.

    Christine is #1 by a wide margin

    Pre-crazy-Charlie-Sheen The Wraith is another old favorite

    Corvette Summer (I *loved* the 'Vette as a kid, hate it as an adult, but still enjoy the movie.) Besides, don't forget it had a slick lookin' Trans Am near the end, too.

    JoFotoz mentioned Duel… I never saw it until recently. Ha ha, to me that's just a typical drive to work with some oblivious / obnoxious tailgater.


    Not mentioned:
    Animal House - The Deathmobile!

    Mother, Jugs & Speed (Just from the title you know it's got some good parts.)

    I liked Will Smith's Audi in I, Robot.

    And what the heck is the name of the Canadian TV show where the stars drove VehiCROSSeseses? I meant to add that to my Netflix queue, but forgot.

    The Audi in Minority Report was pretty cool as well.

    While I appreciate Bullitt, I think the car chase in Ronin was superior.
