    The one that probably rekindled the interest back to the cars that this forum is all about for most of us, well at least me, American Graffiti .

    I agree on Thunder Road. My dad taped it and I was only allowed to watch it if my dad was there, He was afraid I would erase the tape somehow.

    First car related movie I saw as a kid was The Lively Set, but the best movie in my book is American Graffiti

  13. Used Cars is one of my all time favorite movies. I must have seen it 20 times and laugh my ass off every time just like the first time.

  14. Hotrod the movie that rekindled the willys craze and all the above. The movies you watch through the winter months to get your fix to make it till spring
  15. Rebel without a cause. I've watched it more than any other car movie and know the guy who currently owns the '34 roadster in movie.

  16. The "Great Race", but it is probably a little too early to be considered HAMB friendly.

    HAMB era ,no doubt about it, Thunder Road. The 50 sedan stole the show. The Memphis chase is the highlight of the movie. Despite the V8 sound effects in parts of the movie; the Memphis chase reveals the car had a 6 cylinder.
    Best of all timeIMHO
    Smokey and the Bandit
    Honorable mention
    Blues Brothers
    The French Connection
    Macon County Line
    Bonnie and Clyde
    Sullivan's Travels
    White Lightning
    It Happened One Night

    Another vote for Thunder Road, ---- Smokey and the Bandit as no. 2
  19. The easy answer is American Graffiti. The more intellectual answer is Rendezvous (Hey, it's has to be intellectual).

    Hotrod race is good, and so is oh brother where aren't thou. It's not really a car movie, but there are a few cool old cars in it.

    "The Big Wheel" starring Mickey Rooney is a feast of 1940's Hop-ups, Jalopies, Midgets, and Indy Cars.
