That one was good!

The chase in Ronin with the Audi s8 was good & the mustang chase in the old Gone in 60 seconds was good.

Don't like the green screen stuff...

The seven ups had a pretty good chase in it too (between a 74 pontiac grand ville and a 73 or 74 ventura IIRC)

^^^ Despite having had Hal Needham and his company Camera Platforms International as a client (I represented the company on Wall Street) over several years back in the late 1980's, I had never seen "Smokey and the Bandit" till now! So seeing this clip was fun after all these years!

I enjoyed knowing and working for Hal back then and enjoyed having the opportunity to meet many of his friends and associates. For me one of the highlights was meeting Jackie Gleason. I used to talk quite often to Burt Reynolds, who was a stockholder in CPI, and see him when he was in L.A. from his home, at the time, in Jupiter, FL. (Unfortunately never met Lonni Anderson!)

"Smokey and the Bandit," at the time (don't know if it has changed) was the most profitable movie ever in Hollywood. Hal justifiably used to say that that the movie (and him) boosted sales of Firebirds to new records.

At the time I regularly saw Hal, Bandit Racing was still owned by Hal and Burt and was very active in Nascar racing with Harry Gant as the main driver. I had dinner with Harry, Burt and Hal (and my good friend Walter Wood, a key player in the Shotmaker/Lightmaker program, and the producer of the unfortunate "Stroker Ace"). My son still has Bandit Racing stickers and other fan paraphernalia from that time.

This 1974 movie stared Peter Fonda, Adam Roarke as his side kick, Susan George and Vic Morrow as the determined Sheriff. The movie is only memorable to me because it had a huge number of hi-speed chase scenes along with the destruction of lots of cars, especially cop cruisers. The 1969 Charger R/T Fonda drove was a nice one. Actually, the Charger was the real star of the movie!

^^^ I had forgotten about Susan George, her son was in my Cub Scout Pack. Susan was very into helping out a the public elementary school where our kids both went, so I saw a lot in those years. The Pack's Chairman (I succeeded Lorenzo as Pack Chairman) was Lorenzo Music who among other things was the voice of "Carlton the Doorman" on the "Rhoda" spin-off from the "Mary Tyler Moore Show." Lorenzo was always the master of ceremonies at our Pack Awards Meetings and I always got a kick out hearing "Carlton" giving out the boy's awards (his real voice was exactly the same as the one you heard on the Rhoda show!) Unfortunately, if I remember correctly, both Lorenzo and Susan have passed away. That all was a very long time ago!

The one in the French Connection still stands out in my mind.

Lorenzo died quite a few years ago and was also the voice of Garfield the cat in early animations. Quite young too (relatively speaking), I believe.

I do believe Susan George is still with us, however, it was her husband (Simon MacCorkindale), who passed away of cancer in 2010. Both had given up the hollywood life, returned to the UK and were professional horse breeders prior to his death.

I quess I really had forgotten about Susan George, I was actual thinking of Lynda Day George, a lady closer to my own age and a star of the seventies TV series "Mission Impossible." Lynda is from Texas, originally, not Britain.

While not the "best car chase ever" like the title says, it's still a lot of fun, just because of the two cars in it!

That's Bill Hickman whipping the enormous Grand Ville through New York, the same brilliant stunt driver who piloted the Charger in Bullitt, which remains the gold standard for car chases. I love the Get Carter chase as well, especially since it features a Seville.

The car chase in What's Up Doc? is hilarious (actually, the whole movie is a riot). Can't find the full chase scene on YouTube, but this is one of the best moments (unless you like VW microbuses):

Not a Mopar fan. I have legitimately considered purchasing a Fury however after seeing this film for the first time a few years ago. I can authentically relate to it's plot, nearly scene-for-scene.

Another great one is this. Who DOESN'T love fifties Peterbuilts? Especially when they are harassing filthy, little Plymouths. Just posted this on a separate Forum actually, while discussing the topic of sharing roadways.

Lastly, from an absolutely TERRIBLE film (Never saw it, but I reserve the right to judge it by description) Chevrolet always made better trucks than cars. This scene legitimately puts that debate to rest forever.

Any of The Dukes of Hazzard Chase's. As a 8 year old boy they where a lot of fun to watch.
