What’s this, you say? Diecast collectors are car guys — and gals! — at heart, and car guys love car movies. And there are a lot of great ones out there, so we are going to start a regular feature where we toss one out there for you guys to watch — or RE-watch — and then we all get to chat about it! Because talking about car movies (and very likely arguing a little about them — although we ask everyone to keep it civil and good-hearted!) is almost as much fun as watching them — and collecting model cars tied to them, because after all this is a diecast magazine!
We’ll follow up with a post on our Facebook page HERE with our take on the movie, the cars in it, and any models made of them — or that SHOULD be made of them! And you get to play along in the Comments.
The choice here was inspired by the story we just did on another McQueen classic (ie Bullitt — which you can bet will be on the club homework list before too long!). But this movie is the definitive one on the French endurance sports car classic, and a must-see.
And if you want a leg up on all the background drama behind the film, do yourself a favor and check out the documentary, which is on Netflix and Showtime this month:
We are totally borrowing this idea from Jalopnik (with much respect!) If you want to participate in their club too, check this LINK.
