Dazed and Confused also features plenty of cars.

I was gonna mention it but I didn´t think it qualified as a "car movie" as such. It has this legendary car chase but the film does not revolve around cars. Except for the chase it is not car related at all.
But, I must say its´one of my top ten favorites movies of all times.

I like the Camaro with bigas flares in Aloha Bobby and Rose. I've been gathering stuff to do a tribute car for a couple of years. I had a Camaro for the task in '10 but my wife took it from me. She said it was too nice to cut up. She replaced with a pair of cars in pieces.

Is it a car movie? Some of my friends say the car is the only thing that movie has going for it. Tough crowd.

American Graffitti
2 Lane Blacktop

I'm generally not into "car" movies, I tend to be too critical.

I remember watching "Last American Hero" a few years ago. Don't remember much if it though but it had a great opening sequence of a 67-68 Fastback tooling on dirt roads.

Can't believe nobody has mentioned "Diamonds are Forever". It might have been the first movies with our 71's in it. It is the movie that made me fall in love with the Mach 1. Before that I can't ever really remember thinking about a Mustang. I thought there were great car scenes in that movie.

Well there was one other time. My parents argued about whether to buy a new 67 Mustang or a new 67 Camaro. My dad wanted the Mustang and my mother wanted the new for 67 Camaro. My mother won and they bought a new 67 RS Camaro with the fancy molded interior and a 327 2V, 210HP engine. That turned out to be my first car! I traded it for a new 72 Gold Glow Mach 1.

Hey-
I checked out your FB page. I kind of like Heaven's Burning with Russell Crowe. It has a nice odd 80's feel to it. Dead End Drive In has it's charm too, but probably way too 80's new wave for most on here. But the setting is a nice appetizer before watching Mad Max.
A couple to add from the way back...Drive In (70's cheese, may or may not be funny...I don't trust the memories of my 12 year old self).
Two Joe Don Baker flicks...Speedtrap and Checkered Flag or Crash. The Last Chase with Lee Majors. And the piece-de-resistance...SUPERVAN!

One that I always did like was filmed here locally called Stingray with Patrick Wayne and Christopher Mitchum (the sons of two more well known actors....)

Hi
I included Speedtrap ages ago I love that film, and Supervan Rocks, Heaven is Burning is one of the next films to go on after Mad Max (I didnt want to include the obvious ones first) I'm not sure I've seen the Last Chase? and Crash is included but I suspect its a different film to the one you mentioned.

Man! Dead end Drive in I have been sort of convinced I'm the only person in the world to have seen this, I'm not too sure about the quality of it but I love its punk style!

Have you seen Stone? now thats the Mad Max appetizer, its basicly a pre Max Biker gang starring all the gang, Toecutter and Knightrider are the leaders , and Grant Paige even did all the Stunts!!!

Funny that you mentioned "Stingray".

I saw "Corvette Summer" at a sneak preview about a year before it was released, but at the time it was called "Stingray".
Then, the other movie called "Stingray" was released, and I never went to see it, thinking I had already seen it!
Then..."Corvette Summer" was released, and I went to see it, thinking I had never seen it. I realized right away I had as soon as it began. Interestingly, it was edited considerably from when I had seen it as "Stingray". Fran Drescher had a pretty significant scene as a Las Vegas streetwalker/ cop groupie in it originally, and all her scenes were completely excised in the new version.

I finally got around to seeing "Stingray". Didn't care for it.
