Easy Rider (1969)

Do you remember the last time you had to sit through a gruelling hour and a half of bad cinema just because it was a movie about cars? Gearheads are often denied the simple pleasures of a good story and compelling performances. Yet, there are tales of glorious cars and legendary drivers littered throughout the history of motorsport. Following are tales of ambition, passion and tragedy, which artfully demonstrate the love of man and machine.

“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.

In 1950, 23-year old Billy Cook went on a murdering spree across the United States. He would hitch a ride, hold his victims hostage, and then kill them and claim their vehicles. That’s the true story behind Ida Lupino’s first noir film, The Hitch-Hiker. Two friends are on a fishing trip in Mexico, when they pick up a hitchhiker. The stranger makes them drive around Baja California, tormenting them and foiling their plans to sabotage or escape, perhaps in the same way as Cook himself had.

If you’re a car nut, you’ve probably watched or, at least, heard high praise for Baby Driver. Ansel Elgort plays the protagonist, a fearless young getaway driver. He drains out his tinnitus with a constant stream of music. His nemesis is his business partner Doc, played by Kevin Spacey. All Baby wants is to get out of the world of crime, but he has one last heist to pull off. Baby Driver features some breathtaking and unbelievable stunts perfectly in-sync with a rock playlist. If car choreography is a real thing, Baby Driver is indeed a musical.

Audrey Hepburn and Adam Finney play a well-heeled couple on a trip through France in a beautiful Mercedes 230SL roadster.The entire movie is a series of flashbacks they have as they reminisce upon their marital past. This critically acclaimed drama qualifies for our list because of its excellent choice of cars. Apart from the SL, there is an MG TD, Alfa Romeo Giulietta, and a Triumph Herald, among other iconic cars. There is great chemistry between the actors themselves. Two for the Road is refreshingly modern and iconic.

Dennis Wilson from the Beach Boys plays the Driver, who drives a ‘55 Chevrolet 150 with his Mechanic. They drive from town to town winning drag races for cash. This is a movie about their cross-country journey in the pre-interstate era, which turns into a drag race against GTO. Watch this movie without reading the reviews. All we’ll tell you is that Two-Lane Blacktop was an inspiration for Brock Yates when he came up with the Cannonball Run. Since most of the movie is shot on Route 66, along with a trip to the Tail of the Dragon, it serves as a glimpse of a bygone era.

Robert De Niro plays Vietnam War veteran Travis Bickle, who is disillusioned by the corruption of humanity which he sees around him. To help his depression and insomnia, he becomes a night-shift taxi driver in New York City. Taxi Driver is about the melancholy which sits dormant in our chests until it is stirred by empathy and injustice. The movie was mired with controversy before its release, but became a roaring success afterward. No, there are no crazy car chases or heart-stopping explosions. This is one man’s attempt to realise his depression and combat it by doing what he thinks is right.
