100 & 99 Of My Favorite Films From The 1970's (199 movies items)

"In the music world, he may be the Handy Man whose seen Fire and Rain, but in early 70's cinema, James Taylor tries to go against his mellow music style as "The Driver", a rough and tumble drag racer who makes his way in the world by burning rubber. With his partner "The Mechanic", the two criss cross along the nationally long two lane blacktop of Route 66, picking up hitch hikers, adventures, and the occasional trouble-bound Girl. "

" Director: Monte Hellman Starring: James Taylor, Warren Oates, Laurie Bird, Dennis Wilson and Harry Dean Stanton The Driver and the Mechanic are drag racers pitting their gray '55 Chevy against any and all gearheads in order to make money for gas and food. They and a tag-along Girl meet their match in GTO and they all set off on a cross-country race to Washington D.C., with the winner getting the loser's car. But it isn't the end that really counts; it is the process of getting there,"

Filmsite's Greatest Chase Scenes in Film History (83 movies items)

"In the low-budget film, two car-obsessed vagabonds challenged a stock 1970 Pontiac GTO to a cross-country race against their cool, customized, primer gray 1955 Chevy coupe hot rod. The Driver (singer/composer James Taylor) and The Mechanic (Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys) raced against middle-aged, glib "G.T.O." (Warren Oates), with The Girl (Laurie Bird) picked up as a sassy hitchhiker, at his side."

"Katsottu: 7.8.2013 Ihan kivaa fiilistelyä ja komeaa kuvausta. Myös musiikkivalinnat olivat mainioita. Harmi, ettei tässä ollut Bruce Dernia."

Movie Reviews (1-50) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Great road movie with almost documentary style and believable authentic characters. The Downs: The story is pretty pointless as it's all about driving cars and picking up girl hitchhikers for sex. An aquired taste."
