A lot of great ones are mentioned, but I still go with Bullitt and to Live and Die in LA as my personal favorites.

Ford Mustang found in Mexican junkyard is from 'Bullitt,' expert confirms

Nearly 50 years after it was last seen, a 1968 Ford Mustang found in a Mexican junkyard has been confirmed to be one of two known to have been used in the filming of the Steve McQueen movie “Bullitt.”

“I’m 100 percent sure it’s authentic,” classic Ford expert Kevin Marti told Fox News after travelling across the border to Mexicali to inspect the car last week.

The car was discovered last year in Baja California Sur by a man named Hugo Sanchez, its then-white body rotting away and its original drivetrain long gone. Hollywood legend had it that the car, which was the film's primary stunt car, had been sent to the junkyard shortly after filming was complete, but a couple of layers of paint sprayed on top of its iconic Highland Green suggest that it had lived several lives before finally ending up in one.

Marti Auto Works maintains the production database for every Ford built from 1967-2012. Its Marti Reports are a staple of the classic car world. They can tell you when a car was ordered, the color it was first painted, what options it came from the factory with, and the exact date it rolled off the assembly line. If you want make sure that Shelby Mustang you’re about to pay six figures for didn’t start its life as a straight-six stripper, one of these Marti Reports is the best way to find out.

Garcia was shocked when he got his.

Marti was familiar with the vehicle identification numbers (VINs) for the two Mustangs ordered by Warner Bros. for the making of the film. The other is privately owned today and hasn’t been shown publically in a quarter-century, while the one found in Mexico was long thought lost to history.

Lets not forget and return to San Francisco for the car chase from " The Rock". I'm not a Gosling guy but "Drive" was good too...

Footchase?

I know it has shaky-cam but I liked the footchase in Narc...



Car chase? Besides the classic one in Bullit, I'd nominate Mad Max: Fury Road... the best action flick in the last ten years IMHO...

Maybe not an all-time classic, but the chase at the end of McQ is great, and I've driven over most all of the roads where the chase(s) take place.

My current favorite is Jack Reacher. The cops think Jack is running from them, but he's really chasing someone else.

I agree with your McQ reference. The chase at the end on the beach at low tide was awesome as well as the Duke taking down the mobsters with a MAC-10. However, I was heartbroken when McQ's badass 1973 Trans Am (AKA "The Green Hornet") was trapped in the alley by the two semi tractors and crushed like an aluminum can. What a terrible fate of such a beautiful car!

If we are including foot chases, I'll nominate Dead Bang, starring Don Johnson. Not so much for the chase itself as for the realistic after action.
It kind of reminds me of my final run for the PFT in boot camp. Smile

My favorite is the foot chase scene at the beginning of Casino Royale.
