    I don't know if you can strictly call it a car movie but Blues Brothers certainly has one of the best car chases of all time - if a little hokey.

    Yeah, the cars jumping ridiculous distances at the end is very...odd, but at the same time it does work within the film. The ginormous pile ups in that movie are a must see.

    When I get some more time I plan to work through what I haven't seen on this list. I've never gotten to some classics like LeMans and Grand Prix.

    I never thought Bullitt to be that amazing...

    Interesting list. I just realize other than Buillit and Thunder Lane I have the top 20 all on DVD... definatly found some more I gonna have to look out for. Though to be honest i'm kinda supprised More American Graffiti (2nd one) placed so high. I understand the first on but, the second one didn't have much other than a bit of old school drag racing in it.

    Just my 2 cents worth, not really car movies (although Goldfinger is on the list) but almost all Bond movies have at least 1 good car chase. And what about the Bourne movies?
