Some of these are films with notable car chases:

Grand Theft Auto
The Driver
Bullitt
Cannonball!
Ronin
To Live and Die in LA
Grand Prix
Le Mans
Red Line 7000
Greased Lightning
The Last American Hero
Thunderbolt
Days of Thunder
License to Drive
The French Connection
Thunder Road
The Moonrunners
The Last Chase
The Last Run
The Gumball Rally
Road Games
- semis, but if Maximum Overdrive counts, so should other trucker flicks.
The Rookie (1990)
No Man's Land[/i] (1987) - both are films built around car theft rings
The Italian Job - either versions but the first one is the one that really counts.

Honorable mention to the cars in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, The Reivers and Pocket Money, they were practically characters in the films themselves.

HOT ROD GIRL (1956) was actually a pretty good little film. I have a copy and enjoyed it.



There's also another one that I haven't seen yet. It stars Jack Nicholson and it's called THE WILD RIDE (1960).

Another one is the original THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS (1954).

We might as well add any JD films or even coming of age films like AMERICAN GRAFFITI, GREASE, and REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE once we go that route. They seem to like drag racing.

Killdozer is a pretty good movie about a possessed piece of construction equipment, has all the elements I like in this type of film, isolated people, far from help and some really bizarre threat that they must overcome.
I also liked The Car, I think it's a pretty good story, the effects and acting are good. the black car and its driver(Satan ?) are menacing and it makes the wide open and lonely spaces of the southwest appear scary, even in broad daylite. I always wanted a car horn like the one in this movie. Other favorites would be:
Bullitt
Vanishing point
The Transporter
The Gumball Rally
Smokey and the Bandit
Duel
Death Race 2000
Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry
Heart Like a Wheel

Another one that I just remembered, looking at Scott's post of Hot Rod Girl (which has Tommy Ivo in it) is Ghost of Dragstrip Hollow (1959), also having Tommy Ivo.  Its not that bad a flick, I like it..

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
