Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)

This  movie is the grandaddy of all car chases -- a 40-minute extravaganza of wrecked Plymouths, a luscious 73 Ford Mustang Mach 1, a beautiful symphony of real cars getting trashed, real stunts, and no special effects.  No plot to speak of-- a guy has to steal 40 cars.  Acting?  Well, not really.  But the last 40 minutes of this movie has the greatest car chase EVER.  If you love car chases, this is the holy grail.

Attention! This is NOT the crappy Nicolas Cage remake, but IT IS the 1974 original.
