Well I say Mad Max over Road Warrior... they were more cars & less stuntmobiles for my money.
No French Connection? C'mon...

The French film: Wages of Fear or it's Hollywood remake Sorcerer need to be on that list.

Was Smokey & the Bandit on the list? Should be.

Locke should be mentioned since virtually the entire film is the great Tom Hardy sitting behind the wheel as he drives home & his life falls apart with each successive call on his cell phone, could've been boring or pretentious since all the "action" happens in Hardy's character.

Two For the Road's cars are as much characters in the film as is Bond's Aston Martin in Goldfinger, in fact I think they are given detailed credits at the end.

Agreed. The original should have been in the top ten, not that abhorrent piece of garbage remake -- bah!

Previously mentioned, VANISHING POINT.

Also should be included, TWO LANE BLACKTOP, starring Dennis Wilson and James Taylor and a wonderful stripped down '55 Chevy that recently sold for $145,000.00 at a Barrett Jackson auction.

Tarantino's 'Deathproof' is one of my favorites, if only for the way Tarantino toys with our emotions regarding the girls and their friendship...and then they meet Kurt Russel.

American Graffiti had some great car scenes. And The Driver, with Ryan O'Neal as a contracted getaway driver for bank robbers had some great car chase scenes.
