Ultimate List of Car/Bike Movies

So I happened to catch part of "The Road Warrior 2" on AMC last night and thought to myself, "wow, what a great car enthusiast movie. Just look at all the neat vehicles. If I had to make a list of great car movies, this would be on it."

So here's the start of a list. What would you put on the list? Quote my list and add on!

The Ultimate List of Car/Bike Movies:
The Road Warrior

I know someone was going to say something about these at some point. We'll just add the whole series.

The original Herbie series was pretty good as well. Those were classic car movies, albeit a bit quirky at times. Oooo...let's not for get the movie Cars.

So here's the current list. Quote it and add some more.

Wow, we need to have a viewing party with some of these!

I think I've seen Gumball. The scene with the AC Cobra racing in the LA drainage systems was awesome.

I'm not sure how many have seen Corvette Summer, but that's just a car movie gone wrong, lol.

I think the next related topic will be what movies from the Ultimate List have people not seen. Then that will lead us to the next related topic...which I'm not letting out of the bag just yet.

Oh yeah! I agree! Here's a link to the new thread for the Ultimate List of Car/Bike TV Shows.

I grew up on Dukes of Hazzard and Knight Rider. There's actually a really nice KITT replica local to us. I hope I see him again this show season. Awesome car.
