What is your favorite auto movie or video?

Sometimes a movie can influence your love of automobiles, driving and sports cars. So what movie or video is your favorite? I love the Bond films of course, but my all time favorite is a French film called C’etait un Rendezvous by Claude Lelouch where in the early morning he drives a Ferrari 275 GTB across Paris all out.

It is a short film, only around 9 minutes long but definitely worth a look. Go to YouTube and watch the highest quality version you can find, and make sure you turn the volume way up! The sound is intoxicating! I have a copy on DVD so I don’t have a link to share.

Now tell me me your favorite so I can watch it and maybe find a new favorite!

Bored on a Sunday night.

Great thread--I look forward to more responses, but my favorite is Rush, by a mile.

Great thread !

Vanishing point is a classic.
Death Proof is under rated, but good family fun.
Mad Max, Fury Road had the most effort put into the cars of all the series.

Top favorite if we are voting: Cannonball Run

I'm old enough to remember the classics, Lemans and Grand Prix, both injected the racing bug. But I also grew up with movies like

Spinout - Elvis
Corkey - Robert Blake in that Barracuda with superbird wing.
Smokey and the Bandit
Cannonball Run definitely a classic.
All the Fast and Furious, no matter how far out there

Rush is definitely the modern classic in a racing movie.

In Phaedra (1962) Anthony Perkins drives his Aston DB4 off a cliff.
As young as I was, I knew that this was a very special car.

Cannon Ball Run for sure it has to be in the top ten. Two Lane Blacktop is one on my faves list with American Graffiti and Hollywood knights. Classic comedy.

Gotta love the boys of the self preservation society in the Italian Job. Features Lamborghini Miura, Aston Martin DB4 Convertible and of course a trio of red white and blue minis. Great driving movie! Then they did it again in the remake with Aston Vanquish, DB7, original Mini and new Minis.

Great thread. My vote goes to American Graffiti, Cannonball Run one and two, the original Smokey and the Bandit (two and three were terrible), and Hollywood Knights.

+1s to Cannonball Run and American Graffiti.

I thought Mad Max: Fury Road was among the worst movies I've ever seen, though. "Let's drive to the middle of the desert... oh, let's turn around and go back."
