Smokey and the Bandit... I have never seen White Line Fever, but screw it, I'm feeling spunky. No question about it.

BTW, I'm so drunk I have had to perform approximately 87 error corrections in this post.

Of those, Convoy.

And +1 to Two Lane Blacktop. Might as well throw Duel in there as a contender, too.

Yup, in a chipped 1987 Buick Grand National. We raced across I-40, east to west.

Verrrry interesting.....

I was thinking more along the lines of mother, jugs and speed....


"Long out of circulation because of disputes over music rights, Two-Lane Blacktop, now available on DVD, is one of the most original and compelling American movies of the twentieth century. It is a road movie, a film about cars, and a search for meaning in American life that could easily be called "Zen and the Art of Drag Racing". Shot from the inside of a car, it is an authentic vision of what it is like to be driving across America at a specific historical moment. Promoted by Universal Studios in 1971 as an answer to Columbia's Easy Rider, the film was originally released to less than enthusiastic audiences but has since taken on the status of cult classic and it is richly deserved. Unlike Easy Rider, it is a film that simply observes and what it sees is pure Americana: its people, gas stations, diners, and drag strips. We feel the claustrophobia, the spaces, the speed, and the loneliness."

Best part of that movie was the ending.

Guy eludes the cops for days in a Challenger.

At the very end when he runs full speed into a bulldozer blade the car turns into a Camero.

No MoPars were harmed in the making of this film.

We went back to Spokane to visit my parents' old SAC friends on a 4th of Juy. I met PacMan and saw Cannonballrun in the theater. Smokey and the Bandit rules.

Smokey and the Bandit

Now don't forget the White Lightnin and Gator movies with Burt and that big Ford!

I could stand to watch Two Lane Blacktop again; haven't seen it 30 years! James Taylor and that '55!

I love pausing the DVD at that point, and going through it frame by frame.

Because of that movie I wanted to grow up and drive a semi and own a Trans Am. I did, both.

Gumball Rally for the win. Less cheesy than Cannonball Run & the others. Actually saw all of them on the bigscreen
Pure car porn. Ferrari, Cobra, Mercedes, Porsche, early split bumper Camaro...& my fave the '71 Dodge Polara. Love those fuselage styled '69-73 Mopar C bodies.
If I was going to be stuck in a car during a coast to coast race a hot police spec Mopar sedan makes more sense than a pure sports car.
