There are only two *real* decent racing movies. One is "Le Mans" (w. Steve McQueen, 1972ish I'd estimate), and the other one is "Grand Prix" (John Frankenheimer, 1966), which won some minor Oscars but is most remembered for its memorable racing cinematics.


Other racing "flicks" are generally hampered by an overly-sappy storyline (boy races to get the girl, etc) and heaps of cliches. Lots of those, of course (The Racers, Initial D, Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift, et cetera).

Generally though, when it comes to *racing* itself, "Grand Prix" is probably considered the best racing movie of all times. It came out on DVD some years ago.

Hell Yeah! Bullitt killed! The movie was just okay, but the chase scene was awesome! Another car movies would be "Gumball Rally". Kinda simmilar to Cannonball Run, but I think better. As a last resort there's always Days of Thunder..........

I Like the Live Action Vers. Storyline is kinda weird and cheesy but the racing scene and comedy made up for it.

Yah, Bullitt was pretty average as a movie, but the chase scene was BOMB.

Vanishing Point TV special starring Viggo Mortensen, quite old but something to kill time with.
Nice car by the way, a 70 Dodge Hemi Challenger.

If you really like exotic cars ( lamborghinis , ferraris , paganis etc.etc. ) then redline is the show for you and if you like imports then fast and furious would be the better choice .
