I would rate this one for good sound and photography. Especially nice if
you happen to own a Dolby Surround sound system.

All-time worst car movie: 'Manta, Manta!' from Germany, early '80s. Only

I also loved 'The Italian Job' and 'Le Mans'. Got both of them on video, in
I'd vote for 'The Blues Brothers', too. Another of my favourites...
