has got to be from Blues Brothers..Jake and Elwood..
i believe it to be the movie in which the producers set the record for the most crashed policecars ever..
Dodge Monaco with the PA system tied to the roof..great!

Yeah, Bullitt is one of the great ones, and I also love the one in The French Connection with Gene Hackman.

What was the name of that movie that used all the Mini Coopers ? There was a remake a few years back using the new style ones but I liked the older movie with the original Mini's. Can't think of the name of that movie to save my soul. Great ! Now that's going to bother me all day !

The Italian Job. In the original (with Micheal Cain) they jump roof-tops to beat a traffic snarl before resorting to the subways and sewer systems. Not so much a chase as an escape.

And then there's the rather indignant method of "disposing" of the Mini's..... :o

The AMC car chase in the Bond film, Man With the Golden Gun. Which features on of the greatest jumps ever performed in any film. I believe it was filmed in Bangkok, Thailand.

The original "Gone In Sixty Seconds". I always like the chase scenes in any of the "Bourne" movies also.

I have to go with Steve McQueen in Bullitt and his awesome Mustang.  Just the sound effects were awesome on their own.  I can't believe I'm the first to mention this one.....Oh! Sorry Richard, guess someone did already mention this one, I missed it the first time.

The film "Vanishing Point" is one great big car chase - cops after a white 70 Dodge Challenger...

 

John Frankenheimer's film "Ronin" also has a few legendary car chase scenes filmed in France...

 

 

 

And then there's this... Not strictly a car chase, nor a feature film for that matter, but an amazingly daring piece of cinema verite by Claude Lelouch...

I enjoy a lot of the older movie chase scenes here, but as for movies in the past few years I think the chase between the mustang and chyrsler 30 in "Drive" was great.
