I won't say how, you'll need to see it, but it happens....I can't, for the life of me, find it anywhere on DVD, or VHS..
I remember that flick!
I saw it almost 20 years ago but remember it well.
The 1957 Chevy rod was buried under the football field, if I remember right.
Here is a clip and info:

Now, from about the same time, I remember a movie about some high school kids, with a '69 GTO who discover an alien spacecraft artifact, capable of time travel or something.......... can't remember the name

Re: Whats your favorite car movie?

Gee, I hope I'm not posting too late on this as I seldom stray into here.
Let's see; my favourite of them all has to be Vanishing Point and I can
see that it's been mentioned. Well some of the others that I like haven't been
so here are some additions; The Lively Set, 1964. James Darren, Doug McClure.
It's the only movie I can think of that has the Chrysler Turbine car and Mickey
Thompson sharing some of the driving scenes.
White Lightning, 1973. Burt Reynolds. If you listen very carefully to the dialogue
while Burt looks under the hood of his new Ford "blocker" he says "429 with two
four barrel carburettors". Lots of nice driving in this flick.
Fear is the Key, 1972. Barry Newman. The same guy who drove the Challenger
in the original Vanishing Point. This time he does a chase scene that lasts not
quite fifteen minutes in a Ford Torino. The rest of the movie is "who dunnit".
The Seven-Ups, 1973. Roy Scheider. Mostly a cops and robbers flick; it has a
pretty well done chase scene that really "cements" the movie.
The two cars used in the chase scene were both Pontiacs.
A 1973 Pontiac Grand Ville and a 1973 Pontiac Ventura Sprint. Very nice.

Re: Whats your favorite car movie?

Was gonna go with the classic Gone in 60 Seconds and F&F choices but there was a good one in there I can't deny.. Transformers. Can we consider that a "car movie"?

Re: Whats your favorite car movie?

It's funny but my wife and I were just talking about this earlier today. One of my favorite movies period is "The Driver" with Ryan O'Neal as the getaway driver. The chase of the Pontiac TransAm by the Chevy truck is great stuff. And the way the sequence ends ("I'm just the driver"). Classic!

Speed Zone aka Cannonball Run 3 was great, the first two were crap.

Gumball Rally was awesome as well. A Ferrari doesn't need a review mirror because what's behind a Ferrari doesn't matter.

Gone In 60 Seconds, not the remake, was a really fun movie to me.

The Italian Job, both, were awesome although I like the remake more.

The Fast And The Furious was pretty entertaining, only the first one.

Vanishing Point was an excellent movie, the 1997 remake wasn't horrible either.

The Transporter, just the first one.

The Chase, also the remake.

Ronin must be mentioned for the kick ass car chase.
must i say more,,,,, do not think i could have said it better....

Re: Whats your favorite car movie?

I prefer "The Blues Brothers" as a best car movie, which I saw ever. It has a police motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, which is police tires, suspension police, police clashes is a model catalysts before so good going to work with regular gasoline.

Smokey and the Bandit, I think they were in the car the whole movie or it seemed like it
