Joe tell us which car?? One of the 55 chevys?? Two were from 2 lane black top and the crash car later was sold and raced on a circle track..The 50 Merc?? the 58 chevy? Or Milners 1932 Ford with the ManAFree carbs and intake. Last was it the citirone .. I know its my way of being funny.. Every time I see a baby bird{55 to 57 Thunderbird} I think of this movie.

Its 50 plus years old but as Richard Petty said the coolest car movie ever.. "Thunder Road"" First scene a 57 chevy equipped with a nasty device that clamps down on the rear bumper. The revenures clamp down this device to a 1950 ford. It takes off and the bumper breaks loose.. Reason for coming loose it was wired on. The big problem with this movie was the sound effects the used a sound from a inline 6 cyl chev with split dual exhalst .for V8 Fords.. It stared Robert Mitchem. lots of cars that were the hot S#It for the time..

Agreed. Since I was a kid, I watch every James Bond movie anxiously waiting the car chase scene.

Loved that movie, even though it had some errors. My favorite of these was the scene showing one of the cars going off a cliff, shown from the top side of the cliff. When the view switches to the bottom showing the car coming down it is a different make and model. One of the mags (I think is was Hot Rod) did a write-up on the scene where the hauler runs between two agent cars set up as a roadblock. The two blocking cars were engineless, and had special bracing to make them "peel away" when hit by the hauler car. Neat stuff to us at that time. This movie was always one of the "Dusk To Dawn" movies at the old 231 drive in theater north of Huntsville.
