1960 Chevrolet Promotional Film – future collector cars?

March 23, 2010

This is an interesting video from the 1960’s.  Give it a chance. It’s pretty good.

I like the part about the  ultra-cold compartment — “60 degrees below zero, yet the Chevrolet door lock opens with the usual single easy turn of the key…

The video made me wonder… which of today’s 2010 model year cars will future collectors be showing and restoring in 2060?

March 16, 2010

Just poking around online and came across this Popular Mechanics article from 2008 titled10 Best Car Chases in Movie History: Does Wanted Make the List? (By John Pearley Huffman, Published on: June 26, 2008)

So the list consisted of car chases in these films. (Note: This article was from 2008)

  • Gone in 60 Seconds
  • The Blues Brothers
  • To Live and Die in LA
  • Smokey and The Bandit
  • Against All Odds
  • The French Connection
  • Bullitt
  • Dirty Mary Crazy Larry
  • Vanishing Point
  • Ronin

And they ranked the car chase from Ronin the #1 Car Chase of all time…  Pretty impressive. Take a look.

Fast & Furious – a great car movie

March 12, 2010

Sorry. I’ve seen Fast & Furious at least 5 times…. and I can’t even remember how many times I stumbled upon it on cable and watched 20 minutes here and there… Vin Diesel is great and it’s just a fun movie.  Not an Academy Award Winner — just fun.  Cool car scenes. Just a lot of car action… If it was on tonight, I’d be there watching.

1954 Chevrolet Corvette commercial / The First Camaro commercial

March 6, 2010

After finding the Old Pontiac GTO Commercial, out of curiosity, I poked around looking for an old Corvette commercial.  Take a look. It’s amazing how commercials have changed. — Bill

PS… And check out The First Chevy Camaro commercial. Wild!  Reminds me of an old Superman rerun!
