I was going to list all of the mistakes I could find, but realized there are just too many movies, each with many mistakes. So here is a list of movies about cars. Most of these are must see for the car nut, some are just plain dumb:

LeMans - self explanatory movie with Steve Mcqueen

White Lightning - Think Smokey & the Bandit only darker. The movie starts off with the sheriff drowning a couple of guys & leads to "Gator" (Burt Reynolds) getting revenge driving a four speed Ford LTD

Gator - Sequel to White Lightning

2 Lane Blacktop - 2 guys & a 55 Chevy racing a GTO to Washington, no real plot, but still one of my favorites. BTW, the guy at the gas station with the speed shop shirt originally built the 55.

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry - Peter Fonda, 69 Dodge Charger, lots of cops! Another favorite

Smokey & the Bandit 1,2,3 - A Trans Am that changes years every movie. Seriously who hasn't seen these?

Dukes of Hazzard - Hilarious remake of the show, although I don't ever remember Uncle Jesse doing that thing with the apple at the end of the movie, lol.

American Graffiti 1,2 - First movie was about cruising, cool cars including the 55 from 2 Lane Blacktop, second one was about Milner Drag racing.

Vanishing Point
- wow that guy was on one! guy delivering a 70 Challenger on a bet to reduce his "debt". I don't know if this is comical or not, but I think so.

Cannonball 1,2 - race across USA! with some cool rides including some G3s! Big name actors too

Death Race 2000 - Ridiculous movie, the actors either got paid well or needed money, but getting points for hitting someone is a funny concept.

Death Race
- decent movie, horrible way to remake it, should have named it something else

Christine - Psycho 58 Fury, one of the nicest movie cars IMO, kills people. It's a Stephen King/John Carpenter flick, go figure

Sometimes they Come Back - another King movie about some ghosts out for revenge in a 55 Chevy

Bullitt - Mustang, Charger, Steve McQueen, car chase. Movie starts off slow, ends up good.

Gone in 60 Seconds (both of them) - both about stealing cars. Remake has better story, but the original has cooler cars & a longer chase!

I know there are plenty more, but this is a start.

Mad Max, The Road Warrior- Made absolutely no sense at all, except for the fact that Mel Gibson is as crazy as ever. He drove an Australian Ford called a Police Interceptor. It had some huge blower on it that Max could turn on and off with the flick of a switch. Lots of B-grade blood and gore, people getting hit by motorcyclists, the usual Australian thing to do.

Days of Thunder- The actors accidentally call each other by their real names on several occasions. A guy builds and entire race-legal NASCAR in his barn in about 2 days.

DeathProof- It was made by Quentin Terentino. That's bad enough.

Overdrive- Awful B-grade movie about vehicles coming to life and murdering people. Their leader was a semi that had what looked like the Green Goblin slapped on the front of it.

Six Pack- Kenney Chesney stars as a sprint car racer who builds a sprint car with the help of a bunch of latchkey kids....

....and the Marlboro Man- I don't remember the whole name of this movie, it's that bad. Something about some guy who wears a Marlboro jacket and does Evil Knevel style jumps to save some friend or something.

Wow. I remember nothing but the godawful car movies... Embarassed

Already ahead of ya, lol. So will the Two Lane Blacktop 55 be there or the American Graffiti one? How's that for a curveball?

Two of the three cars survived American Graffiti, we all know what one didn't. One of the two was kept as the AG car & has been pampered & shown in magazines. The other had a way more interesting story. Long story short... it turned drag car, then parts car, then sat in pieces in a barn until the current owner bought it & tracked down the missing parts. It now looks just like it did in TLB. The Criterion Collection DVD shows the rebuilding & what it looked like with previous owners. Pretty cool stuff on there.

Snap plenty of action pics!

The movie was Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man. it wasn't that bad compared to others. By the way my 1963 Chevy II 4-door was the feature car in the B budget most likely C movie Lakota Woman. Check it out.

If you are going to list Cannonball, you have to list Gumball Rally. Smile
I do still plan to build that Hawaiian Tropic Laguna! Cool
And speaking of the Hawaiian Tropic car, it has a cameo appearance in the ESPN Movie 3 about Dale Earnhardt

this is the actual car from movie just restored
and actually the car is a 1973 Furd Falcon XB Coupe (Austrailian Furd).After the film company was 'finished' with this car, they sent it to the junkyard...after having invested $35,000 building it!!! Thankfully, a fan/collector discovered and restored it to the condition shown here.
The original black Interceptor then appeared in car shows and museum displays across Australia, before finally being sold to the Cars of the Stars Museum' in Keswick, England, where it sits today.
