Next weekend, the Riverside International Auto Museum will host the Legends of Riverside film festival, gala and general car show-off. In addition to a tribute to Paul Newman and screenings of Winning, Le Mans, and The Making of Le Mans, folks like Dan Gurney, Bob Bondurant, Peter Brock, Brock Yates, and Pete Lyons will be there chatting up all those four-wheeled-things that go fast. If you're a movie and racing fan who's also into Maseratis, the museum has more than 30 of them on display, including an MC12 and that sweetness from sister brand Alfa Romeo called the 8C Competizione. Oh, and it's all for charity, which might be one more reason to swing by if you're in the neighborhood...

      Has anyone ever sat through the movie Le Mans? It's like your watching your eyelids slowly adhere to your eyes, from the inside. It along with any number of (the vastly overrated) Steve McQueen movies is TRULY boring.

      I hope they play some really cool car movies. My personal faves:

      It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad World

      Arriverderci Baby

      Any movie where Elvis plays a race car driver

      The Gumball Rally

      Faster Pussycat Kill Kill

      Cannonball

      Any James Bond Film

      Smokey and The Bandit

      Any Transporter movie

      Christine

      The Thomas Crown Affair

      Talledega Knights ( A movie I had to be in the hospital to watch,but, turned out to be one of my fave movies ever!)

      What other ones did I miss?

        Fast and The Furious , meh

        I did add Talledega Nights!

        Well, come on Blaine, what are yours?

        P.s. I know "The Thomas Crown Affair" is a Steve McQueen flick, it's the only one I can sit through. And I forgot Matt Helm and In Like Flint.

        After reading your idea of a good car movie, I'm not suprised you didn't like Le Mans. Didn't you forget to add Talladega Nights, the Fast and the Furious series and Transformers in there?

      i'll make a trip up to the armpit of so-cal for this. I really appreciate the effort the owner's put into this place.

      the problem with this is even if its the best movie ever you're still in the 951
