Ive been a car guy since I was a small kid. I remember running to the front window to look outside if I heard a car with loud exhaust driving by. This being said, I would watch any movie with a car chase in it. Some favorites were Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, Smokey and the Bandit, Cannonball Run, Ronin, Gone in Sixty Seconds...
I REALLY enjoyed Hot Pursuit. Surprisingly good for a newer movie on a budget.
My son has been a huge Smokey and the Bandit fan since he is about eight. Hes 15 now and sometimes if I ask him what he wants to eat, He will reply a Diablo Sandwich and a Dr Pepper. Cracks me up.
Anyone remember one from the 70s called King of the Mountain? Corvette Summer? I think Vanishing Point was mentioned. There was a remake in the 90s that was kinda good.
I will not watch any of those Fast and Furious movies.
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!!
I still get a call to rebuild a Q-Jet every now and then; it was probably the most versatile carburetor ever designed. I even saw one mounted on a 70's vintage BMW V8 prototype at the BMW Museum in Munich in 1981.
