Car Movies That’ll Both Make You Nostalgic and Cheer You Up

Summer is here, and many of us are looking for fun things to do that will be both exciting and new. While people are out planning vacations, road trips, and other fun activities, some people rather stay home and watch movies. If this is you, there are some great recommendations we made just for you. These movies are the best car movies ever made and a great way to cheer up an otherwise dull summer day. 

Our Best Car Movie Recommendations

Rush (2013)

It is easy to love a movie about Formula 1 racing, and this movie has everything you could ever want for a feel-good car movie. We recommend you watch this as F1 cars depicted from that era are cool, dangerous, and exciting to watch. 

Ford vs. Ferrari

This movie takes you into the epic story of Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles's early 60's attempt at building an American race car that could beat Ferrari at the 24-hour race at Le Mans. The incredible shots will have you feeling like you are there, and the intensity adds to the excitement of the movie.

Fast Five (2011)

The Fast and Furious movies are iconic, but this movie sticks out from the rest because of its focus on the street-racing subculture. If you want to watch a Fast and Furious film, this is the one to watch. 

Days of Thunder (1990)

Days of Thunder is an American sports film based on NASCAR. We think this is a must-see as it has everything from racing and drama. The film is about the desire to win, a rivalry that grows into a friendship and romance. 

While there are many fantastic car movies, these are just some of our favorites. If you want to stay home and watch a car movie, we don't blame you!
