There’s only one thing car people like more than cars: movies with cars in them. If there’s a huge car chase with classic cars, it’s bound to get their attention. There are countless films with beautiful cars, so here’s just a small sample of the best Mopars in the movies.
1968 Dodge Charger, Bullitt
This film has, by far, the most famous car chase in film history. With over 10 minutes of high speed action, it really does grab your attention. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, you’ve probably seen the car chase scene parodied on many TV shows. For the die-hard car fans, the scene can be hard as two beautiful vehicles take quite a beating.
1970 Dodge Challenger RT and 1969 Dodge Charger RT 500, Death Proof
Any Tarantino fans love this film. The usual blood, gore and foot fetishes from his previous films are present in this instant classic. This is another film with a long car chase that ends with two classic cars getting wrecked in the process. Little known fact: the license plates on Stuntman Mike’s cars are taken from famous films - Bullitt and Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry.
1969 Dodge Charger RT 440, Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry
This entire film is based around a car chase. It leans heavily on the Charger but does also feature a 1966 Chevy Impala. Admittedly, it’s not the greatest movie, but it’s a great way for a true car enthusiast to kill a couple hours.
1969 Dodge Charger RT, Dukes of Hazzard
Almost everyone is at least familiar with the General Lee. The film doesn’t hold a candle to the original series but it does a good job of modernizing the old car.
