Recently, I’ve been working on adding to my DVD collection. In doing so, I started looking through my collection of what I consider to be “car” movies. It got me to thinking: How do you determine what qualifies as a “car” movie and, more importantly, how do you determine the best “car” movie ever made?
Determining what qualifies as a “car” movie?
This was more difficult than I thought. In the end, my criteria came down to the simple fact that the plot of the movie needed to be about a car(s), car racing, or prominently feature cars in supporting roles.
Determining the best “car” movie ever made?
Well, I have my opinion of course, but I’m going to leave it up to you. The list below is one I put together based on my favorites. If I missed one, or your opinion differs, please let me know by commenting below. The poll ended a week after voting started. Here are the movies people could vote on.
- Le Mans
- Grand Prix
- The Cannonball Run
- Smokey and The Bandit
- Mad Max
- Gone in 60 Seconds
- The Gumball Rally
- American Graffiti
Based on the fact that this is a Porsche themed blog and most of the people who read this are Porsche fans, I was thinking the winner wouldn’t be a big surprise. Here are the results of our poll on the best car movie ever made. Thanks for voting!
