If I had to close this blog on a bang, I would certainly do it with this video. If you love racing (rallying in particular), do yourself the biggest favor you can and hit, at the very least, the “Watch later” button, as this video is one and a half hours long.
There’s a brief history on almost every major event, including Mille Miglia. It’s extremely good, and if you don’t enjoy it I can offer you a full refund.
Pontiac GTO — During the filming of Two Lane Blacktop (1971).
“Not even the rain halted shooting of Two-Lane Blacktop. In fact, Monte Hellman credits the rain for adding excitement to an otherwise slow-paced scene when the characters arrive in Boswell, Oklahoma, early in the morning to find the town asleep. Things were so organic on the set that there was no makeup artist. The actors were simply instructed to “get a tan” before shooting began.”
