No matter how new, how old, or what kind, we all enjoy watching films. Why? Movies provide us with a compelling story because they are entertaining. There have been a lot of vehicle films produced recently, but which is the best? Based on the automobiles in the picture, the driving scenes, and the racing, we will evaluate car films. Tusmundo
- Death Proof (2007) – This film’s first half may seem a little dull, with a lot of talking and just a group of girls drinking in a bar (not even a wild bar party, just a group of 3 girls drinking). However, the second half of the film picks up, with a car chase involving a 69 Charger and a 70 Vanishing Point Challenger. The film is intended to have the atmosphere of a Vanishing Point and a Slasher film from the 1970s. Check this out if you’re a fan of the Mopar brand!
- Road Racers (1994): Despite the name of the film, there is only one brief race and two car chases in it. The opening scene of the film is a police chase with a 1956 Chevy and a 1956 Buick, all set to a fierce Rockabilly tune! While there is fantastic Rockabilly music from Glen Glenn, Hasil Adkins, and Johnny Reno, there is greaser violence (not Grease greaser violence, but rather Outsiders-style violence with a 90s humour twist).
- Thunder Road (1958) – Allow me to tell the tale; I am fully capable of doing so. Let Robert Mitchum give you the story instead; he’ll do it better. Running moonshine in Tennessee in the 1950s while attempting to avoid getting caught by the tax collectors is the subject of this Mitchum-starring film. It contains a lot of crazy vehicle chases with a 1950 Ford Coupe, 1957 Ford Fairlane, 1956 Chevrolet covert car that can rip off cars’ bumpers, and Mitchum singing a song about the movie!
- I’ve been dazed and confused for so long it’s not true: Dazed and Confused (1993). Unfortunately, that song isn’t in the movie; Jimmy Paige was on board for it, but Robert Plant wasn’t. This film is comparable to American Graffiti from the 1970s, with the exception that the main character is starting high school and it’s the first night of summer rather than the last. Anyhow, a 70 Chevelle SS 454, 70 GTO Judge, Ford Maverick, 37 Oldsmobile, and a 74 Trans Am are involved in a car pursuit with a 64 Buick and a 72 Chevy Truck.
- The 1992 novel Tales of the Crypt: King of the Road – Okay, I lied. This is an episode of the HBO horror series Tales of the Crypt, not a standalone film. What makes this movie so special? IS NOT ON THE LIST, WHY? The episode begins with a street race between a 1969 yellow Chevelle SS and a 1969 red Dodge Charger set to a rocking Warren Zevon song. Later, the Chevelle SS and a police car engage in a car chase, and in the conclusion, the Chevelle SS and a 1957 Chevy Gasser compete in a street race! Warren Zevon composed a fantastic soundtrack, but only one of the songs, “Roll with the Punches,” has been made public; the other, “Bad Road, Wretched Road,” is only available as a cover by a group by the name of Rebel Son.
- Hot Rod (1979) – This made-for-TV film from 1979 is difficult to locate. Compared to other movies I’ve seen, it certainly contains the most Drag Racing scenes! In the beginning of the film, a street race takes place between a 65 Hemi Plymouth and a 69 Olds Cutlass. Later, a hemi-powered 41 Willys Coupe Gasser, a couple funny vehicles, a funny car fueled by rockets, and a tonne of drag racing scenes are featured.
- Kowalski, a deliveryman, is transporting a 1970 White Dodge Challenger from Colorado to San Francisco in the 1971 film Vanishing Point. He accomplishes this by driving fast the entire time, starting the biggest vehicle chase ever! Police were after me the entire time!
- Who needs plots in the 1971 film Two-Lane Blacktop? Not in this movie! To make a spectacular car movie, we only need a driver, a mechanic, a girl, a guy with a GTO, a 55 Chevy gasser, and a few random hitchhikers. This film is solely focused on automobiles! Almost every scenario has a GTO and a great 55 Chevy, which you can see and hear. Drag races occur both in the beginning and the end of the film!
- American Graffiti (1973) – Did any of you find this surprising? Nothing but cruising, amazing music, humour, a few races, and plenty of fun with old automobiles! We also see a girl driving a 1956 T-bird, a 58 Chevy Bel Air that is likewise powered by a 327, a gorgeous but obnoxious yellow 32 Ford, and a black 55 Chevy (which is actually the same one as Two Lane Blacktop). In reality, this film is not about growing up but rather cars. The battle between the 32 Ford and the 55 Chevy is one of the film’s highlights! For more details Novelas
