A quality drive
Imagine how the pitch for this went: "It's about two guys in an old car racing coast-to-coast against a guy in a new car and, er, that's it". But the car is a souped-up '55 Chevy and the new car is a Pontiac Trans-Am and the respective drivers are James Taylor and Dennis Wilson plus Warren Oates. Oh, and there's a girl tagging along for the ride. Monte Hellman's existential journey is the road movie to end them all.
