Driver, Mechanic, Girl, & GTO

One of my favorite blogs, The Selvedge Yard, has an excellent look behind the scenes of the Road Tripping and Drag Racing classic, Two-Lane Blacktop. The movie might not feature as much adrenaline and motor oil as LeMans or Grand Prix, but it certainly holds a place in the Pantheon of greatest car flicks. I rewatched the movie recently and I realized how much of an impact the pace and style of the movie must have had on the independent film boom of the 1990s. I could have picked out dozens of specific shots that would be used later in Tarantino, Linklater, Paul Thomas Anderson, or Kevin Smith films a couple of decades later.

Head on over to the Selvedge Yard for more.
