All kinds of memorable and thrilling movie moments happen in cars—these fast-paced scenes get our hearts racing and put us on the edge of our seats! But before you get settled in to watch the Griswold family’s daring driving in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation or the Grinch’s expert sleigh steering this year, Dean's Automotive Service Center, Anchorage’s leading auto body shop, wants to share a few of their favorite car movie scenes of all time.
Top 3 Ultimate Car Movie Scenes
1. The Matrix: Reloaded
The Matrix films are known for their stunning visual displays, and this installment is no exception. Reloaded features one of the coolest bike chases of all time, which was constructed with both CGI and exceptional stunt driving. Weaving between trucks and facing high-speed oncoming traffic, lead characters Morpheus and Trinity make a stunning getaway in this 2003 film.
2. Wayne’s World
Everyone’s favorite Queen song plays an enormous role in what’s probably the most memorable scene in Wayne’s World. Five friends go out for a joy ride while listening to a tape of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” with each man singing a different part and head banging in concert! For an entire generation of movie-goers (including the team at your local auto body shop), this scene sets the standard for every car sing-a-long.
3. Jurassic Park
The infamously suspenseful “water glass” scene has been referenced numerous times in popular culture. Everyone is sitting in a car when the water in a glass mysteriously starts shaking. Eventually we see the terrifying culprit: an escaped T-Rex!
Some of the best movie scenes tend to leave cars in dire need of an auto body shop. If you need auto repair, or just a simple oil change, you can reach Dean's Automotive Service Center in Anchorage at (907) 276-5731, or visit their website for details.
