vintage British Car movie with cars from the 50's


Senior Member
Looking for a black and white movie that starts out with many Healeys, XK140, Lea Francis.
The cars were flying around a corner during a road race, sliding & throwing dust. I only saw the first few minutes & it seemed like The Thunder Road time.
We are looking for a great Drive in type movie for our club function in Feb.

Any other good ideas for a movie that will accomodate all members including non car women & non racers?


Jedi Knight
Country flag
I think the movie you are after is Fast and Furious. Same name as the Vin Diesel-Paul Walker franchise but much earlier.

Bruce Bowker

Obi Wan
The car (?) Elvis winds up in the water with is not the same car (Cobra) as he is in on the road.


The Cobra from the movie "Spin Out" is this one, CSX 3028.(not car in swamp). I have been working on this restoration for sometime and the car is almost completed. I will update pics this weekend.

Thanks! I actually found this forum as I am now in the process of doing a ground up on my '59 TR3,(just about done with sheet metal work then epoxy prime before I start on the chassis). I saw the reference to movie cars so I thought members would enjoy. I will update pics this weekend. The car is getting loaded to go to the Targa 66 in 4 weeks,then it will make an appearance at Road America in July and Monterey in August where the Cobra will be one of the featured marques. I will be posting more vintage race stuff I have done in the future. Ford GT 40's, Formula cars, Jags(E-Type, XK's),Sports racers,Cobras etc... .
