Top 5 Movies For Gearheads
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.
It was 1966, and Ford was determined to beat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. British racing driver Ken Miles was in-charge of perfecting the car on the track. We all know the story of the legendary GT40, but its Le Mans victories came after years of toil, millions of dollars, and the loss of two of Ford’s best racing drivers. Ford vs Ferrari puts the team’s sacrifices and commitment on the big screen. With Christian Bales in Miles’ shoes and Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby, this is likely to be remembered as a classic by car lovers in the future.
