    Duel, Steven Spielberg's first movie. A 1970 Plymouth Valiant versus a 1955 Peterbuilt 281. Epic.

    It was "The Wraith".

    Packard Walsh drove a late-1970s Chevrolet Corvette with a custom paint job and nose clip; Oggie drove a 1986 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z; Minty drove a 1977 Pontiac Firebird with a highly-visible (but apparently non-functional) supercharger; Skank and Gutterboy drove a beat-up 1966 Plymouth Barracuda; Rughead was driving a late-70's Chevrolet pickup. The couple who are cheated out of their car in the first race were driving a 1987 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z (distinguished by its' pop-up headlights, unlike the exposed headlights of Oggie's 1986 model). The police drove a variety of mid-1980's Plymouth Caravelles and Gran Furys, as well as early-1980's Chevrolet Malibus; Sheriff Loomis drove a "civilian" Plymouth Caravelle.

    How about these

    Drowning Mona (yugos)
    It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (for countless vintage cars)
    Nathional Lampoon's Vacation (the family truckster really was the star of this movie.
    Traffic (a bunch of oddball cars, see what you can spot in this scene: )

    And though cars don't have much to do with the central plot - the Renault/moped/subway chase in Diva is one of the best chases of its kind:

    I was wondering when someone would get around to mentioning this. This is the definitive "car movie". :P

    My favorite is a series of shorts called "The Hire", featuring Clive Owen driving all kinds of different BMWs really, really fast. :tu:
