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.

Kowalski is a Vietnam Veteran, stock car racer and ex-police officer who now delivers cars. He starts on his mission with no sleep, to get a supercharged Dodge Challenger R/T from Denver to San Francisco. He’s running on Benzedrine pills and speed, and he stops for no one. Meanwhile, a blind radio jockey is tracking his movements and egging him on to run from the cops who are on his tail. Vanishing Point features interesting characters and brilliant views of the pre-interstate midwest. It served as an inspiration for other films on this list.
