The hotrod and the car chase have long been a central theme to Hollywood movies. Bullit is probably the all time classic car movie. Starring Steve McQueen, Bullit has the main character driving his Mustang GT all over San Francisco at high speeds. Other movies with classic car chase scenes include The French Connection (maybe the greatest single car chase scene of all time), Smokey and the Bandit (made the Camero a hot car), and Gone in 60 Seconds. Some good car movies for kids include Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (where the car flies) and the Herbie the Love Bug series. The latest car movie, Cars from Pixar, is one of the best and a wonderful movie for kids.
