This is it. This is the car chase that set the bar. This is the car chase that captured our imaginations and made us love it when two muscle cars duel to the death. This is Bullitt. 

For this epic occasion, James and Sid are joined by movie stunt driver Christopher Almon, who has worked as a driver/stunt man on numerous car movies.

Do we even need to ask what makes this chase so awesome? Or about how awesome these cars are? The rest of the movie on the other hand... Well, let's just say there's some spirited debate about Steve McQueen's acting.

Ridiculous. Hilarious. Outlandish. Real. The Cannonball Run wasn't the first movie about the legendary illegal cross-country race, but it was the most iconic. Penned by Car and Driver editor Brock Yates and helmed by Stunt Driver/Smokey and the Bandit director Hal Needham, The Cannonball Run is one of the happiest accidents in movie history.

James and Sid are joined by comedian Derek Williams to discuss this 1981 ensemble masterpiece that probably should have been terrible. Filmed in only a few weeks with an cast that was basically a bunch of Burt Reynolds' friends hanging out and being drunk, Needham somehow captured lightning in a bottle and set the course for 1980's pop culture.

What was the goal of this movie? What exactly was Roger Moore doing here? How did Derek learn to drive a manual? Enjoy the latest Reels and Wheels!

Punk rock, drugs, 80's fashion and decaying aliens in the trunk. Only 1984's Repo Man could bring such greatness together and contain it on one screen. Joining Sid and James to help understand this complicated/insane movie is Ed Carden of The Pushers - a renowned sketch comedy group who runs The Push Comedy Theater.

Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton carry this cult classic which also happens to star a sinister 1964 Chevy Malibu with radioactive alien corpses in the truck that vaporize anyone who dares to open it and take a peek.

What was this movie really about? What other magical powers did some of the cars have? Did you know that Ed Carden used to have a Volkswagen Quantum?!
