    Cool your favorite car/truck/bike movie?

    wondering what movies ppl around here liked.

    i just finished the third stage of initial d and im surprised to say i got hooked on an anime series. im looking into more car related movies to watch.

    as far as other movies go, i do enjoy a couple of the f&f movies, biker boyz, the wraith (anyone remember that one?). and of coarse i loved the dukes of hazzard when i was a kid.

    so...what else out there is worth watching or a must see? maybe you got a favorite tv/movie car you'd like to mention...

    Was Going to mention the wraith! There is always the classics though. i.e. gone in sixty seconds original, mad max, christine, bullit, Or ultra cheesy like night rider. But the best car series by far is Top Gear! (British Version) huge information and great humor

    On British Top Gear the US one is not nearly as good but has its moments. Answer me this why have a Stig when you have a racing driver as host? Frankly all 3 hosts are a bit lame. They just don't have a broad enough background and comradery to keep the show interesting.

    And Dust to Glory.
    Dust to Glory was really good. Think I've watched it 2-3 times now. Love the Beast about Eric Bana's Falcon is a pretty good one too.

    Half my Netflix que is filled up with car movies I want to see. Got the original Gone in 60 seconds last week and Bullit should be here soon.

    - The Jaguar hearse in Harold and Maude.
    - The car chase seen in Ronin (with DeNiro) was one of the best I can recall.
    - Ferrari in Ferris Bueller
    - Delorean from Back to the Future
    - Various cars from Grease
    - Stallone's Mercury hotrod in Cobra

    Isn't that the one where Peter Fonda rammed it into a train at the end? Sudden ending achieved by the Sherriff using radio to make Peter THINK their were cops all around? Kinda lame in the end, I thought. (So was Duel really...wasn't that Speilberg's first?)

    Bullet was a bit better...still had the Charger too.

    Gone in 60-seconds (both versions) were good for the car guys.

    I kinda liked Burt in Gator McCluskey and Smokey -- because of the cars.

    The worst had to be Mark Hamill in Corvette Summer -- with that butchered Corvette.

    Which reminds me...Like many guys, I liked the batmobile(s) and the Monkee's pontiac.

    Pontiac was my favorite in the 60's. Honda/Toyota in the 70's (during the gas crunch). Jeeps and Chevy's after that. (Started thinking American again.)

    Until I bought a VX in 2010 of course. Now I don't care for Jeeps much anymore. Wish it was American-made tho.

    BTW...Ditto on Stalone's Mercury! And, let's not forget about the Munster-Mobile and that coffin-dragster.
