Truck Movies

Recommended Posts

So I did a little back to back movie watching this weekend: Convoy and then Smokey and the Bandit.

So I went to the local choke and puke on Sunday for brunch and got to thinkin' is there any better trucker movies that could top those? So let me what you think is the best trucker movie dontcha know. Come on.

I'd probably have to pick Convoy as my favorite with the first Smokey and the Bandit as second. I like them all simply because of the "cast" and some of the actors are pretty good too. I think I've seen them all except for Highballin'.

the movie itself is pretty lame,but Moonfire has some great Mack footage,beautiful blue RS700 with a Mercury sleeper and a real nice FS700 V8 powered single axle. Smokey & the Bandit II is pretty good,too.

I have most of the movies, and enjoy them all. Can't really pinpoint one as best. Just depends on my mood.

Not to mention the late,great Charles "Chuck" Napier of Moonfire fame (& drivin' the RV for the "Good 'Ol Boys" in the Blues Brothers)!

Agree with all above.

Moonfire was probably not translated into Russian. Will try to find it in the net.

thought Bandits trucks had a 3406 Cat in it? thats why Jerry Reed wears a Cat hat? dunno, Charles Napier could drive, he did some grindin on that old quadbox in Moonfire tho haha. think he drove truck in some of the Dukes of Hazzard episodes to.
