    The chase scene in Bullet is over rated, if you watch closely you will see the two cars pass the same VW Beetle about 5 times. Now either they just played the same scene from different angles or that Beetle was faster and managed to get past without them noticing. Mustang or Dodge Charger, no thanks, i'll take Herbie.

    Ronin, what a movie, loved it from start to finish
    The Bourne Trilogy - fantastic movies
    Gone in 60 Seconds - Cage, wicked movie & Eleanor, stunning car

    Tron :p - Cant wait for the new Tron 2 movie to come out, Tron has been a fav of mine since knee high years.

    Yup, just watched F&F. Forgot how sh*t the plot was, but that Charger sounded fantastic.

    Now onto Ronin...

    The lotus in The spy who loved me must have been the greatest PR coup ever for Lotus as was the Trans Am in Smokey and the Bandit -

    Best car video has to be Cosmic Girl by Jamereriqai

    FYI - if anyone wants a proper driving song then download the theme from cannonball run, it has the noise of the lambo V12 - I shall one day be driving a muchelargo with this and also cosmic girl at full chat lol.

    Bullit was over rated, if you watch the chase closely you will see both cars go past the same green VW Beetle four times. How did the VW get past them for them to overtake it so many times, maybe Steve McQueen should have drove a Beetle, he would have caught them quicker. :think:
