Top 10 Car Movies Of All Time

Ford-Mustang-Bullitt-Steve-McQueen-600x359
Can we imagine a world without cars? At a first glance, this seems a rather simple task and we are tempted to answer “yes, this would not be so difficult”. But at a closer look, we can easily see that cars are so thoroughly imbued in our culture, that we can almost say that they are, if not some “floating signifiers”, then, for sure, they have a crucial symbolic value, not just a mere utility meaning. And who else, better understood that, than the world of cinema. The world of cinema, of “simulacra and simulations”, fully contributed to this symbolic capital that we are often investing in cars.

New Gloss on Cuba’s Classic Cars

“When Martin Viera’s Chevrolet rolled out of the dealer’s lot, Harry Truman was president of the United States, gasoline cost 27 cents a gallon and a 24-year-old lefty named Tommy Lasorda was pitching for Almendares in the Cuban winter baseball league. That world is long gone, but the Chevy’s still running on the streets of Havana – part of a fleet of classic cars that have become an icon of tourism in the socialist nation. For decades, the cars slowly decayed. But officials in recent years have eased state control over the economy by allowing limited self-employment. So those lucky enough to have a pre-revolutionary car can earn money legally by ferrying tourists – or Cubans celebrating weddings – along Havana’s waterfront Malecon boulevard. Viera’s 1951 Chevrolet and Osmani Rodriguez’s 1954 Ford are now part of Havana’s tourist draw”. – The Associated Press
