You'd think a ThermoQuad would sound like a Quadrajet, but they weren't even similar.

We ran a 350 Monza at the Solo Regionals at Stuttgart years ago. We were using a TQ because we could get jets and needles through Direct Connection, and QJ bits were unobtainium. (or, through H-O Racing, unaffordium)

Ran just fine, but the *sound* ... on a high winding 350, it sounded like a giant moose call. People were getting up out of their chairs and climbing on top of motorhomes to get a better look at what was making all that commotion.

For my money, the one at the end of "The California Kid."

McCord is baiting the sheriff.   Sheriff Roy is making a suicide run; even if he lives, he's facing a trial and Old Sparky. But if he can, he'll take McCord to Hell with him...

It's not a really long scene, but it's a classic Western-style showdown at the end of what over the years still remains my favorite movie.

The "Kid" was built by Pete & Jakes. They built a replica for themselves as a shop car. It was at a show in North Carolina when Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top saw it and had them build a third copy, except with "ZZ" graphics instead of flames. That one is known as the "Eliminator" and is on the cover of the album of the same name.

All three cars have done a cruise night together at least once...

Great selection, but for me the best are the chases in Mad Max 1 (so wild!) and the one from To Live and Die in L.A.
