  1. I didn’t understand most of the picks until I saw the age and sex of the author. She might want to check out Wild Hogs and Vanishing Point. Also, The Great Smoky Roadblock and Two-Lane Blacktop.

    Seriously, Thelma and Louise and no Smoky and the Bandit.

    • You do realize that the author of this article didn’t pick the 25? It was Men’s Health that did. Check your facts and biases.

      It may come as a shock, but women and young people actually like movies and cars too.

  2. Two For The Road. Audrey Hepburn.
    Grapes Of Wrath. Henry Fonda
    The Film Flam Man. George C. Scott
    The Searchers. John Wayne. Okay, so it’s on horses…
    Two Lane Blacktop. James Taylor. Yes, THAT James Taylor.
    The Long, Long Trailer. Desi and Lucy.
    The Reivers. Steve McQueen.
    Paper Moon. Ryan and Tatum O’Neal.

    • “Il sorpasso” is a 1962 movie by the italian director Dino Risi with Vittorio Gassman actor. The film, generally regarded as the director’s masterpiece, is one of the most representative cinematic frescoes of Italy’s prosperity and economic miracle of the Sixties’ era. A beautiful Lancia Aurelia B24 convertible is the protagonist with the star actors. Frames of two lives that cross and end, dramatically. A must see movie.

  3. Best ever American Grafitti, followed by Two Lane Black Top and the Crazy Mary and Dirty Larry. There are no more after that

  4. Don’t forget international films, too!!! They have rads, too!! e.g. “The Wages of Fear”
    1953 ‧ Thriller/Drama ‧ 2h 36m
