than the remake.. I still can't get over the new mini's with all that gold in them doing a front endo when coming out of the tunnel OR the fact that sometimes they are driving Cooper S's... and then magically, you see a Cooper shot spliced in (like we wouldn't catch that?) Must have run out of Cooper S's I guess. Still the best scene in that movie is the 2000 limited edition mini weaving in traffic and doing the 180 parking job.

Bullit is cool... being McQeen did much of the driving himself.

...I like The Bourne Identity, Ronin, Bullit, and Gone in 60 seconds. But, I have another list of contenders:

* The Porsche/Ferrari matchup in Against All Odds

* French Connection is hard to beat the original although Ronin tries...

* Most of the Bond movies

* The Road Warrior (this comes in close behind my number 1)

* And who wouldn't want to beat up a couple of rental cars on the streets without a care in the world because you got the liability waiver aka Days of Thunder style?

But, the #1 in my book: Duel by Steven Spielberg. Absolutely amazing, terrifying, and riveting.

And how could you 2002 enthusiasts forget the scene in The China Syndrome?

As for chases... I doubt you could consider these chases, but Grand Prix and Le Mans are still some of my favorite car movies. Grand Prix will probably never be duplicated as the ultimate racing movie. The "Making of Grand Prix" is as good as the movie itself.

I'd also like to add some other good stuff to the list... Vanishing point, dirty mary crazy larry for chase scenes... Anyone seen the Audioslave music video for "show me how to live"? (see vanishing point)

ALso like to point out "two lane black top" with that wicked '55 chevy (same one used in american grafiti)

I've not driven down Sunset often enough to say, but as far as I could see, it was pretty close to the real sequence.

Jeff Bridges hasn't looked good in a film since. :(

original Italian Job? One of the coolest pieces of stunt driving I've ever seen...wonder how many cars they wrote off practicing (and how many stunt drivers...) NY1 else remember that? or do I have the wrong movie?

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
