Thanks for the classic shots. What's with the 2nd and 3rd pics file format? I tried to save them to my Cuda files and they are PNGs, whatever that is.

It's not already in your collection? What's wrong with you?  :clueless: Actually, I'm just as bad. I have the Phantasms, Bullit, and the original Gone in 60 seconds (what a chase--Wow). But, I just now got around to ordering Corvette Summer, Vanishing Point, and some Peter Fonda movie I had never heard of. It's something like Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry. Apparently it has wicked car chases mostly with a 69 or 70 Charger. I just ordered those three on Amazon yesterday. Anyone know of any other good old musclecar laden movies besides these out there? I wish they would put Catch me if you Can on DVD. Not the one with Leonardo--the one with all the cars. Anyone ever see My Science Project? Kids got a cool GTO in it.

If you're into collecting Mopar movies, be sure to get the Blade series. His Charger is awesome. :biggrin:

I remember My Science Project.  That came out in the 80's. 

Sorry, behind the time on Phantasm.  I didn't think that showed that much of the 'Cuda, so I never got it.

Other car laden movies, not just a passing glimpse of the cars..... (For you Bearcuda!  :thumbsup: )

If you like GTOs, Two lane Blacktop (55 chev, 70 GTO, drag racing scenes, even a superbird, stars James Taylor.  Yes, the Handyman), also The Last Ride (Stars Dennis Hopper.  Was a Cable TV thing to promote the 2004 GTO but also had a '68 or '69 GTO in Carosel Red.)

Check this out:  '55 Chevy with a 454 racing a 'Cuda!  Other vintage cars too.


Dazed and Confused--various muscle cars form the 70's--GTO, Chevelle, Duster driven by a young Ben Affleck.

Bowling in a GTO;


Gumball Rally--One of my favorites and the one of the originators of the coast to coast cars race movies--Shelby Cobra, Ferrari Daytona Spider, 600hp '70 Camaro driven by "Mr. Guts", old Mercedes 'vert, Dodge Police car, 70's Vette, Porsche 911, Kawasaki driven by Lapchik, the Mad Hungarian, and a Rolls Royce.  Awesome audio of the cars, especially as they speed out of New York City in the morning when there's hardly any traffic.

Cannonball--Starring David Carradine, not the cheesey Cannonball run with Burt Reynolds (No offence!)  Stars 2 identical early 70's Trans Ams and a '68 Charger. 



Gotta love Mad Max--someone correct me but I think it was an Australian Ford Falcom XB as the Interceptor with other cars in it too.  That Interceptor just makes me  :drool: .


Corvette Summer-Modified late 60's/early '70s Vette Stingray, early Firebird Formula/Trams Am.


The Wraith- Charlie Sheen-PPG Chrylser Concept Turbo, modified Laser, Trans Am, Vette, others....


Shaker Run--Lief Garret-- Modified 70's Trans Am

Hollywood Knights-Tony Danza--Project X supercharged '57 Chevy, Rail job, El Camino, Shelby Cobra.


No Man's Land-old movie, Charlie Sheen,  Porsche, Porsche, Porsche...

Got all those. Thanks. I have The Wraith and a few of those others too.

 Hey, there was this other movie with a crazed driver behind a 70's b body, charger type with a smooshed bumper that made it look mad. He went around running people off the road and killing them and stuff. What was that movie? Also, there was this other movie, I think called THE CAR that had what I believe was a modified 60's lincoln continental. The car itself was possessed and killed people. It had a crazy horn that went Merrr....mer.mer.mer.mer.Merrrrrrr. I'll have to check and see if that one ever came out on DVD.
I also remember this crazy one I saw as a kid called KILL DOZER. It was a possessed bulldozer that killed people too. Probably extremely cheesy if I watched it now, but I was entralled by it as a kid.

Thanks for all the recommendations superblue. Unfortunately I can't view any of the youtube stuff as I am on a restricted network here in Iraq. Thanks though.

No problem.  Sorry you can't see the links.  I posted the youtube links because I knew there was something special about you internet connection in Iraq and thought you wouldn't be able to search for those movies.

Thanks for serving and stay safe!  :wavingflag:

The is a movie with Ashton Kutcher and I think Reese witherspoon, where ashton is driving a 70 Challenger flat hood, prolly 318, blue. He proceeds to smash it into a gate at a mansion and rumple the front end and radiator.
Can't think of the name, and nothing comes up un you tube, perhaps someone knows what it is?
