    Read this thread from first to last and since “ The world fastest Indian “ was mentioned, I guess I’ll have to chime in on my favorite movie. Loved it as a kid, I tolerate it as an adult, but still like to watch it every once in a while : “ The Wild One” with Marlin Brando.

    How about Roadhouse 66? Made in the early 80's, has some cool rockabilly sounds, and has a cool 57 Chevy in it (even if it is driven by a bad guy) as well as a 56 T Bird. I also like Two Lane Blacktop, American Graffiti, American Graffiti 2 (like the race scenes with Milner), and Christine amongst many others.

  8. American Graffiti makes just about every list. It is my favorite since it portrays dragging Main that we did every Friday night in the summer in the 60s. That movie was set in Modesto but everyone who is in the know knows Porterville was the Valley got-to place for dragging Main. Watch it once a year at least.

    Then comes Hot Rod Willys because I LOVE Willys gassers. Have owned and driven my '36 gasser clone since 1964.

    Can't overlook Giant Gila Monster. BEST episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 EVER. "My thinker hurts", "Who put sodee pop in my sodee pop?!", "NOW WILL YOU FORGET ABOUT THE SKID MARKS?!!!!!!!".

    Heart Like a Wheel, Bullit, are great too.

  12. My two favorites as well...still have the tapes of both movies, and a TV with a built in tape player in my shop.
    Where I grew up, we even had our own "Paradise Road" over a mile of straight blacktop road, with no side roads for the local 'fuzz' to hide. Oh to be young again. Bought my first Willys (a '40 coupe) in 1960...G-willys

    Not what we would consider "traditional" rods and customs . . . but Mad Max: Fury Road has some very interesting automotive related action:
  14. ^^^^Whoever built that stuff for the movie sure had a vivid imagination^^^^:D;)
