Detroit engineer Preston Tucker has always wanted to build cars. As World War II draws to a close, Tucker’s dream finally begins to seem possible—he hires a young designer and the financial support of a New York financier to help him build the ‘car of the future’. The ‘Tucker Torpedo’ was to feature never-seen-before safety designs, such as disc brakes, seat belts, a pop-out windshield and swivelling headlights which turned with the car. This extraordinary film caused the price of the Tucker Sedans to spike and won Tucker and his automobiles new appreciation, upon its release in 1988.

Based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, Christine is the story of a car that doesn’t want to obey the man-machine pecking order. After having mysteriously claimed the lives of many unsuspecting people, including its builders, drivers and passengers, the red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury, named Christine, falls into the possession of a young Arnold ‘Arnie’ Cunningham. As Arnie spends more time repairing Christine, he unwittingly dons the persona of a 1950’s greaser. The just-shy-of-sentient, bloodthirsty motor vehicle that is Christine, is emboldened further by his devotion towards itself and unleashes a series of horrors upon his life that Arnie would never see coming.

When a gifted getaway driver (dubbed ‘The Driver’) successfully outruns the cops after yet another robbery, he becomes the target of a tenacious police detective who is determined to catch him and put him behind bars. An otherwise quiet and brooding film, this one is a must- watch for its several thrilling, spectacularly shot car chases alone; it has suffered unjustified neglect or harsh judgment over the years.

A man named Bud drives up to him on the street and offers him $25 to take his car out of the neighborhood and a repossession man’s job.

Otto soon learns that his repossession agency has been offered a $20,000 bounty notice for that very car. Most assume that the car is drug-related but they’re in for a shocking reveal.

Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s documentary is one of the most entertaining biking trip movies of recent times. The duo hop on beautiful new BMW tourers and set off on their trip — from London to New York City, the long way around. They travel across the English channel to Europe, then to central Asia, Russia, across the Pacific ocean, Alaska, and then across the heart of America to the finish line. The documentary does well to highlight the challengers which even experienced riders face when they leave the comfort zone of the first world.

“They’re not scared of you, they’re scared of what you represent to them.” The recurring theme in Easy Rider is the breakdown of American culture. Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper were the producer and director of the film, respectively. They play two motorcyclists who ride across America and bare themselves to the atrocities of a life without the safety net of social conformity. They befriend a lawyer, played by Jack Nicholson, an alcoholic and victim of his own square-ness. Easy Rider is acclaimed for its raw drama and beautifully photographed scenes, and a heartbreaking ending.

Yates’ Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash inspired another movie in 1976. This one features a race from Times Square to the Pacific ocean. Apart from the best muscle cars of the time, Gumball Rally also features an AC Cobra, Chevrolet Corvette, and even a ‘69 Porsche 911 Targa. The Gumball Rally was born out of automotive enthusiasts’ frustration and rebellion against the nationwide 55mph speed limit. For this reason, the rally cars have neither a catalytic converter, nor a law-abiding driver.

Also known as Carquake! this movie is a fictional representation of a cross-country race from Los Angeles to New York City. These races were held illegally each year, a tradition which Brock Yates continued with the Cannonball Run. This one’s an action-packed thriller with a myriad of cars and parallel storylines. Drool over the protagonist’s Dodge Charger, a Chevrolet Corvette, Pontiac Trans Am, Volkswagen Bus, and a brutish Chevy Trailblazer. There’s even a DeTomaso Pantera. But it’s not just speed you need to win the Cannonball. Not when your co- racers are willing to sabotage, dupe, ram and kill their rivals.
