Has to be Bullet. Perhaps not a true road trip, but damn close since half of the movie is the chase.

Does "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" counts?

Nobody for the Fast n Furious movies? Really? Sure, the acting is terrible, the plots are dumb, most of the cars are American, but it's about cars. Just cars. What more can you want?

Tokyo Drift is the best in that series, and features a bunch of cool modified ricers.

What about Skyfall? The latest 007, with the reappearance of the beloved Aston Martin.

Very cool.

Those Fast and the Furious movies epitomize everything I hate about that whole ricer culture and the dumb-ass kids that drive them with their stupid coffee can mufflers and picnic table wings and most of all the #$%^## subwoofers that irritate the living #@%$$%# out of me every time one goes by. I just want to drag them out of their crap can cars and slap them silly until my hand hurts to much to slap them any more. Not to put too fine a point on it...

But yeah, Cannonball Run...great movie. Honorable mentions to White Lightning and Dirty Mary Crazy Larry and of course Easy Rider.

No, tell us how you really feel . . .

Careful, any minute now, you'll be outside in your oldest bathrobe yelling "Hey you kids! Get off my lawn!"

Teasing you . . .

Best film with driving content- LeMans. The king of cool in the 917k vs the Ferrari 512 long tail. "Racing is ....life. Everything that happens before or after, is just waiting."

Best road trip story- Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance

IMHO of course
