Death Race 2000

There good car movies, and then there are GOOD car movies and just so you know, 1975’s “Death Race 2000″ is neither of those. Most people born after 1990 only know about 2008’s “Death Race” starring Jason Statham. For those of you into automotive movie trivia though, you’re probably well aware that the original is the real gem. Starring a very young David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone, “Death Race 2000″ follows the cheesy antics of poorly dressed drivers as they race across the country in cars made from old Volkswagen Beetles and discarded paper-mache. The special effects are terrible, the filming atrocious, but I’ve got to tell you that if you’re looking for a fun, low-budget car flick to watch on a Monday night when absolutely nothing else is on, then “Death Race 2000″ is the one for you.

    We just watched this the other night. It’s so great. I had forgotten that Stallone was in it though, so it was a surprise to us when we saw him. It truly is a movie that should be paired with a good set of drinking game rules as it really is that bad.

    Where is the original car from the movie “Super Fly”? Is it tucked away in a museum? This car was the desire of every man who had seen the movie. Today I am still wishing that I can own that car or a similar car with all the trimmings. Nothing was more impressive than this car. It was the only thing that I can remember about the movie. WOW!!
