I remember the movie "the Car (1977)".  It might take a little bit to do so.  There are similar "Road movies" like that one, too.  I think that's a nice Diecast car of it, Rushfan.

This is just the type of film me and my girlfriend watch.  Not sure if we've seent his one, but will give it a go if we haven't.

We tend to like films that have low ratings.

The sound of the car is one of the movie's best features.  Plus the one cool special effect.

Then do I have a movie for you! 0% at Rotten Tomatoes.

Sample from the critics:

One can imagine Franco and his buddies seeing The Bad Batch or watching Mad Max: Fury Road, renting some motor bikes and dirtying some clothes, and then realizing they forgot to write an actual movie.
