    OK, I did a quick search but I'm sure Squirrel God will be along shortly to sort that.

    Anyway,
    Movies with cars as a main feature:

    My faves are:
    Taxi
    Taxi 2 (best opening ever to a film) and only £6.49
    Fast and Furious
    Bullit

    What else should I be looking at then boys and girls?

    P.S. Please don't suggest Driven with Sly!

    I'm a bit of a car nut: check out my site to see what I drive when the weather is good.

    What are you trying to say? :eek: ;) :p

    Any movie featuring Hondas is alright with me :D

    Pulp Fiction, Independence Day, and Jackie Brown all feature Hondas, with Jackie Brown featuring a 1979 Civic :)

    Vanishing point, quite difficult to find but well worth it. Features a supercharged dodge. It was also the inspiration behind Primal Scream's Vanishing point album.

    Vanishing Point's just been released on R2 so it shouldn't be hard to find.

    Yeah, vanishing Point. Fantastic film with great music and chases. Bullitt. Best car chase ever. French Connection, not a bad car chase. Robbery with Stanley Baker. Super car chase, in this country too, By the same director of Bullitt. Italian Job of coarse. Hooper with Burt reynolds. The original Gone in 60 seconds Is fantastic too. One huge car chase from start to finish. All except robbery are out on dvd.

    Thanks chaps -sounds like I need to go and buy Vanishing Point.
    Squirrel God - I hope you looked at my wesite - It may be a Westfield car but the engine in it is pure Honda! Fireblade bike engine to be exact.
    The wife drives an HRV too.

    And you know you're the search daddy.
    Wow, that would look great on your Avatar:-

    Sqirrel God
    The search Daddy!

    I'm new to cars mate as I only got my licence at the start of September and my Honda Civic is my first car (brand new because I have no fear of damaging it :p) - so I don't understand all the ins and outs of them (although I'm learning!) but it certainly looks nice yes and it has a Honda engine so that's good too :D What's the bhp of that baby?

    The carbon fibre body pannels, six speed sequential gearbox, the racing tyres, the 12,500RPM limit, the lack of windscreen, doors or roof make it very light.

    The engine puts out about 130BHP - probably similar to yours...
    But...
    The car weighs about as much as four tyres and as a result goes very very fast.
    To put it in context, it would leave any Type R for dead and a Porsche 911 turbo would really struggle to keep up with it.
    It can just about keep up with a 600cc sports bike.

    Which is nice!!

    Mine's not even close to yours :p It has a little 1.4 engine (fuel-injected though :D) - 95 bhp from what I recall. Kerbweight (how much it weighs??) is 1126kg. Rest of specs are:

    Max. Power (PS @ rpm) 90 @ 5600

    Max. Torque (Nm @ rpm) 130 @ 4300

    Max. Torque (lb.ft @ rpm) 95 @ 4300

    (I have no idea what any of the above mean :()

    Maximum speed (mph) 110

    Acceleration 0-62mph (secs) 11.9

    Bet my MPG is better than yours though ;) :p

    Urban 35.3
    Extra urban 52.3
    Combined 44.8

    I know - and they aren't even that fast anymore compared to Busas and ZX12s

    My car is pretty scary as it is. To ride a FireBlade on full chat must be intense to say the least.

    Actually mine is about the same.
    On the track it does about 3-4 MPG!!

    But, at 70 on a Motorway I can easily get 50MPG.

    I'm green with envy mate.
    I wanted a bike but I'm not allowed one on threat of losing all sexual favours!
    I had to settle for a car with a bike engine.

    I intend to watch Traffic at some point (not seen before). Does that count as a car movie? :D

    I liked the film BULLITT so much, I bought myself a 1968 Mustang Fastback and have just finished reastoring it to the same as the one in the film. I love it. 6.4 litre V8. £75 bhp. free road tax and fully comp insurance for £78. I reccomend it to everyone:)

    I'm now an even darker shade of green. Envy does not begin to describe what I feel.

    You are quite possibly the luckiest man alive.

    Mind you, I'll probably calm down if you tell me what it cost!

    paid £9000 for the car which was in very good nic. Spent about another £3000 doing it up. Almost showroom condition now. You can get them very cheap and still have a good running car. They are very easy to come by too. Fastbacks are a bit harder to find though. 0-60 in about 5 seconds, if you can get away without screeching the tyres. Funnily enough I saw a Dodge Charger, also 1968 in the paper today. Its in Yorkshire, £7500.

    cheers
