Nothing like the secondaries on a quadrajet opening

Ronin, sweet Euro engine sounds. Gone in 60 seconds, Eleanor (new version) is my dream Bourne Identity, Damon beating on the Mini is hilarious

Posting anything James Bond is cheating lol. But my favorites are the Kenworth W900 chase scene in "Licence to Kill" and the AMC corkscrew jump in "The Man with the Golden Gun".

A screen shot from Duel has been my screensaver for a long time.

The movie 'Dirty Mary,Crazy Larry' was actually based on a book called, "The Chase" by Richard Unekis. I read it several years ago and the movie does a pretty good job of following the book. However, there is no Mary, dirty or otherwise.

What's a car chase thread without Dirty Harry.

We listened to a few of those big Quadrajets opening in the old days too-my '68 Impala SS 327/300 HP, and my brother's '70 GS 455, good thing gas was cheap back then! Used to run the air cleaner upside-down on the 327 for extra air flow (& noise), my brother is still the only person I ever heard of getting pulled over in it for a loud CARBURETOR!!

Too many will never know the distinct sensation of putting the pedal down on a full size big cubic inch American car as the nose rises in the air to the sound of oooOOOHHHHMMMMM
