great car movie: Love the Beast
« on: March 19, 2010, 03:02:00 PM »


A very good car movie, recommended to all car-people:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1284028/

It tries to explain the "why" but I think its not especially helpful to make "not-car-people" understand

Parts of that movie remind me of another very good movie, played on Speed channel sometimes

I recommend playing all the parts of this film from the same poster

I saw the interview on Leno a few years back when he showed the footage of them wrecking.  It was his first race after spending years restoring that car!  I'm sure it's back on the road now.

Bana actually mentions Speed Merchants in his movie as being very influential on him.

@ Scott: he didnt restore the car (yet) by the end of the movie, but probably he will give it another try, though most likely not to race it anymore.
