The Best Car Movies of All Time

Despite what The Fast and Furious Franchise might lead us to believe, great car movies are few and far between nowadays.  The genre is one that allows itself uncommon cinematic privileges.  Some of the best car movies of all time were complete pieces of crap save for an extended chase scene, copious amounts of vehicular eye candy, or inexplicable resonance that earned it cult status.  Car movies don’t have to be “good” to be worth watching.  But some are.  Some manage to illustrate, in part at least, why we love cars and the intangible freedoms they provide us.  Motor Authority asked their readers recently to list what they consider to be the best car movies of all time.  Watch the clips, read the critiques; you just might find a favorite of your own.
