Another must-see for fans of great car chases, Reels and Wheels talks The French Connection. Based on a true story, The French Connection includes a history, 5-minute car chase that pits a basic 1971 Pontiac Lemans sedan against an L-Train!
James and Sid talk about New York City's abusive relationship with cars and how the muscle car age was an inconvenience to them. Were the cars in the true story more interesting than the movie? Why were the sedans so awful compared to the coupes?
And how about that chase? How much danger were people really in due to the reckless actions of director William Friedkin? Enjoy Reels and Wheels! Follow @ReelsandWheels on Twitter and Facebook.
