LA Times Lists Top 10 Car Movies

October 06, 2008

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Times' "Up To Speed" bloggers, Ken Bensinger and Martin Zimmerman, have posted "Souped-up cinema: Our 10 favorite car movies" on latimes.com. The writers noted that they attempted to avoid "the usual recital of road-race smash-'em-ups" to leave room for films they felt made a statement about life in America from the driver's seat.

Here are the bloggers' 10 picks in alphabetical order, linked to their respective entries on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb):

American Graffiti (1973)

Blue Collar (1978)

Bonnie and Clyde (1967)

Bullitt (1968)

Repo Man (1984)

Road Warrior (1981)

Smokey and the Bandit (1977)

Two-Lane Blacktop (1971)

Used Cars (1980)

Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006)
