    Do you happen to remember the movie, (I think Robert Mitchum), where there was a roadster and they put nitro'gliserin in a bottle on the front seat and drove it into the 'monster'. Losing his beloved roadster, but saving the town'??

    Good timing, I just found out "The Delinquents" (1957) was filmed around town. Now I'm obsessed with getting a copy to check out some of the past drive-ins and diners used in the movie. Also a good collection of social movies on http://www.archive.org/details/prelinger

    this movie is kind of painful to watch between the car stuff. I'm trying but it sucks pretty hard, I love the Flathead powered A tourer though

    I'm collecting old movies and series all involving hot rods or muscle cars also the first GM tutorials on how to drive! The only thing is that I have to be really awake to see them complete LOL. Thanks for posting I needed more titles to buy for my collection.

    I LOVE those old Hot Rod movies ! :D This one was one of the better ones I have seen so far . I bought the collection a few years ago with a ton of the great old hot rod movies on it called Burnt Rubber and has a lot of the great old movies on it . I would like to find some more movies on line on can buy in collections of the old ho rod movies from the 50's and 60's .
    I have to say $400 was a lot back then But that was still a good deal for what he got back in the day .
    Was good to see him kick that kids ass ! If you remember that guy was the DR. that played in the TV show Emergency !

    Thanks for another good flick to watch ! Got anymore to watch or a place to find them ? I also love the old Sci-Fi movies too . We have one on I think Friday night that shows some of the really , really BAD Japanese movies ! Still have fun watching them every weekend !

    It's hard to believe that anyone on here wouldn't dig these movies. They regularly transport me back in time as an indisputable reference.

    Ah! That was bugging me, used to watch the show..I just watched the movie, I thought not too bad, there are many that IMO were way more korny...I haven't watched the "D of S" movie yet; don't know what I'm waiting for, had the DVD for 6 months..

    That's the Don Ferrara Roadster in a later guise, I think it was light blue then. Can't wait to see it restored, is Orosco still doing it?

    The flick wasn't too bad either (considering!) Running Wild is another one that didn't suck. Noticed the So-Cal '31 A roadster (that Tanimura has now) at the drags too!

    Love the T-tub, cool upholstery-

    I like the old Hot Rod movies and the Sci-Fi stuff.Occasionally you'll see somebody famous in them and the cars and gizmos are great.

    It took me about 20 minutes to figure it out. He looked a little familiar but the voice gave it away.
