Car chases

Recommended Posts

Has Mad Max been mentioned yet?
The director George Miller did some seriously new stuff with that film, fitting the cameras to unusual places in the cars making some very ‘close’ action shots....




The first ten minutes of this film might be the best petrol head chase of all time. And I’ll argue that with anyone, come at me.

Considering they're a big heavy sedan with a 4-pot 2.4, those old Volgas can honk on a bit!  That was a joy to watch!

I was thinking the same! Didn’t they look great tanking along! I’d very much like to own one tbh. Ideally the one with the V8 but I gather they’re rare ex government cars.

I still get goosebumps watching that. It's so good.

Definative playboys....

I'm a bit late to this but liked for Roger Moores acting face. It never changed did it? 

 

Also, again I've no idea how to get videos on here, especially as I only have a phone so the instructions on the other page mean nothing to me but there's a couple of bits from the Professionals spring to mind. One where a Triumph 1300 gets the better of Doyles Capri in an abandoned warehouse (actually its massive, could be the old Manchester Central Station) then comes round a corner sideways (I would say out of control knowing how one handles) and slides perfectly up to the kerb as if he meant to do it all along and it wasn't a fluke honestly. The other they're being chased by a 2.5PI (it's not a coincidence that the Triumph ones stick in my head). They come over a railway bridge then hang a very sharp right jump out and duck behind the car with guns at the ready. The Triumph has disappeared and they get sarcastically clapped by the people at the bus stop. I don't think I need to try and put the videos up, you can picture that can't you? We've all been there.

This is from a film called 11 Harrow House, a really badly made production that I don't think ever made it to DVD. 

 

It has all the hallmarks of a classic chase, with a few extra mental moments thrown in. A Lotus Europa, couple of S Type Jags, a LWB Transit and erm, horses, all take part. The sudden appearance of a cliff face in the grounds of a country house is a particular highlight

The Sweeney 'Stoppo Driver' episode Consul GT chase was on Youtube for ages but seems to be currently unavailable.   'Cooney, show us what you're made of',   etc.

 

 Late to the thread but it's on there now.
